How to Grow Thicker Hair
When I was younger I had thicker, fuller hair. I can remember screaming when my mom would try to brush it out because it always was so tangled! Even though it was a pain to manage, I loved having thicker hair! Over the years I’ve had a problem with thinning hair. I know it’s not as thin or fine like others but it’s not something I’m used to. My mom and sister have thinner hair now too so I am assuming it just runs in the family. Everyone seems to think my hair is still thick but I think it’s because it’s naturally curly and doesn’t look as thin as one might think.
You can see at the part in my hair below how the I have thinning hair:
Here’s some great tips that I do to create more volume and achieve thicker hair:
1. Don’t wash your hair everyday. Since I have curly hair I absolutely must have wet hair to style it but I don’t shampoo it everyday. I normally only shampoo it one or two days each week. Sometimes I’ll add my favorite leave-in conditioner. Once or twice a month I use a deep conditioning treatment like Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask. I’ll put a shower cap over it and sleep with it on overnight. It really gives my hair a boost since I color it.
2. Avoid heat styling tools. This one is super easy for me. I rarely blow dry my hair unless it’s freezing out and I have to leave the house right away. Since my hair is curly I try to let it air dry as much as possible. I haven’t used a flat iron on it in years!
3. Use a hair regrowth treatment. Rogaine has an amazing new product, Women’s Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment, you can find at your local Walmart. I’ve been using it for nearly a month now. The Women’s Rogaine foam works beneath the surface to reactivate follicles to help regrow hair in a once a day foam. It’s super quick and easy to work into your daily routine. Plus, it gets to the “root” of your thinning hair problems. I love to pair it with Aveeno Nourish+Shine shampoo and conditioner. It’s great for my dry, color treated hair!
Now since I’m using Women’s Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment I can get rid of all the hair products I’m no longer using. Plus, it’s going to save me so much money no longer purchasing so many different products to get the volume I want for my hair. Rogaine gives me the volume I need!
What are your favorite hair products to use for thicker hair or to create more volume? If you have thinning hair, I suggest trying Women’s Rogaine Hair Regrowth Treatment at Walmart!

These are all great tips! I take a prenatal vitamin every day as well even though I’m not pregnant or nursing. I love the extra vitamins for my hair and nails. I might have to try Rogaine soon because my forehead is turning into a five head! #client

Thanks for the great tips. I have never tried Aveeno shampoo but I love their soap.
Lisa Rios says
Very useful post. I am also having the same issue for the past few years. I have tried so many options already. But sounds like Women’s Rogaine Hair Treament might be the best solution for gaining thicker hair.
Melissa Smith says
My hair has definitely thinned out over the years ever since I started having kids. Ironic much? LOL I may have to check into this Rogaine for Women though, because I really do miss my thick hair.
I’m glad that this is still around for people with hair loss. It’s a good product.
Mistee Dawn says
I’ve always wondered about this product, but never tried it. I think I will give it a shot.
I’ve done the rogain but I didn’t really see a difference, maybe you must use it for more time, I think I only used it till it was gone, maybe 3 months. I’ll give it another try. Thanks!
Richard Tay says
Great products! Thanks for the great tips.
Ilaria Carraro says
i would really like to try these products! they seem to me very great
Irene Newstead says
I have thinning hair and really appreciate your tips.
Alayne Langford says
I am a mature woman with noticeably thinning hair. I really appreciate your candid review as I have been scouting out the Rogaine for Women. Thank you for your post! 🙂
Well, I have not try Rogaine, Thanks for the advice, I’m gonna try it. I have sleek hair and I have tried a lot of things to make it more bigger, to have more volume. You could try Aloe Vera, straight from the plant. Right now, I’m using a horse shampoo(not for humans) and it is really good, it has coconut. I tried pills but they didn’t work so good. Is hard to remember all the things, but you can use Biotin. I prefer the shampoo and conditioner. It does MIRACLES.

OMG I was using rogaine ( minoxidil 5% ) and it it is awsome it is not because of hair loss no it is because I had an impulsive control disorder called trichotillomania which is the fact of pulling my own hair !! it is not like crazy or something like that, you just become obssesed with pulling it out it could be your hair, your eyelashes, or even your eyebrows. Thank God I am no more a trichster I don’t pull my hair out anymore and I went to a dermatologist she gave me minoxidil 5% ( Rogaine it is for men but women also can use it) and I made a mistake so I don’t want anyone to make it do noooooooot apply it without wearing a hairband omg it grew me hair in my face !!!!!! and I am totally serious i still have that facial hair and I am shocked because it is too thin and blond I went to another dermatologist she told me that laser will make it look worse facial removel cream too anything except for one cream called vaniqa or something like that but unfotunately it is not permanent so I will need to apply it for the rest of my life in order to decrease the productivity of hair growth so please everyone should know what to do it is not that minoxidil is bad or something like that no it is just my fault so wear that hairband before aplying it

I am sympathetic to those who are losing their hair, but I have too much! I so wish it did not take me so long every day to getmy hair under control.
Linda Manns says
I use Aveeno hair products daily. I have never tried Rogaine. I guess I need to not wash my hair every day and try this product to see if it will help. Thank you for sharing the great tips
Gale McCarron says
I am in such dire need of help for my hair. Between aging and having thyroid problems I’m losing so much hair daily. I’m definitely going to give this a try. Thanks!
Maria Jose says
Omg since my hair is very thin I’d like to try this ;-; thank you!
Rebecca Williams Parsons says
Some great tips but for me i use Mane and Tale and it seems to help it grow and thicken.
I am soooo trying this. Thanks!
sandy weinstein says
i am little nervous abt using rogaine. i have been using nioxin for many yrs. it really helped in the beginning. but now not so much. looking for something new. nioxin was referred to me yrs ago from a scalp specialist. i had had surgery and lost a lot of hair.
Thanks for this post. I could definitely use some thicker hair. Mine has always been super, super fine which makes a lot of hairdos impossible!
Carolyn Cheek- Massey says
Thanks for the tips on getting thicker hair. I haven’t purchased Rogaine but buy shampoo for volume. I use to have hair enough for 2 people but with thyroid problems and not eating right it has gotten so thin. I don’t wash my hair every day and when I comb it I get so much hair it’s scary. I wear my hair short and spike it up so doesn’t look as thin.
Sandra Watts says
I have always had very thick hair but recently had surgery and starting losing my hair afterward. I was told it is common after big surgeries but I would love to try and get the thickness back. I just didn’t want to spend money if it didn’t work. Thanks for your review.
Dana Truitt says
I’m telling ya, I have such fine soft thin hair that has no body to it, and it’s straight as a pin. I have just decide to deal with it because everything I’ve tried never worked it just made my hair oily!!
Adrienne Z says
I wish there was a way to grow thicker hair without having to buy a product. I’m a single mom and am SO BROKE all of the time.Buying anything extra just for me is always out of the question!
Barbara A Langley says
I have very thin hair that doesnt grow very fast. These tips will help and the products too. Thank you
Dorothy J Boucher says
I know at my age I have thinning hair, so I could definitely use a product to help my scalp stay fresh in which will help my hair grow thicker and longer.
Carrie Shirley says
Worth a try…
Terry Myers says
My best friend has thinning hair I will buy this for her hope it works
Linda Manns says
I will have to give this Rogaine for women a try. I already use Aveeno and love it. Thank you for sharing
Sandra Watts says
I’d like to get thicker hair. My hair thinned a lot after I had surgery.
Jennifer Heintz says
I liked reading your tips. My problem is age and thinning straight hair. The styling products do a lot of damage, but can’t be avoided. I have never tried Aveeno, but am going to look at it more next visit to Walmart. Thanks.
