Hair thinning can be devastating for self-esteem, especially for women. If you wake up in the morning and find that your hair is not as thick as before, don't give up hope. What you may not know is that there are actually a lot of tips and tricks to make your own hair look thicker, super full and elastic.

Hair thinning may be a normal part of the aging process or it may be due to other causes.

Why Is My Hair Thinning?

Age: Hair loss is natural, and as you age, your hair can start to shrink in length and diameter at random. As a result, the hair is shed and the actual number of follicular units is reduced.

Stress: A nervous event or period of time can cause hair loss. A tense event can suspend hair production for a period of time, resulting in thinning hair.

Diet: An unbalanced diet is a factor that affects hair thinning. Failure to obtain all the right vitamins and minerals can lead to hair loss.

What should I do?

There are some styling techniques and products that can plump and thicken your hair and the hair you leave behind. Try these tips to get the most out of your hair.

Treat hair gently to reduce hair loss. Use a wide-toothed comb to replace the hairbrush and carefully comb the tangled hair instead of pulling it hard.

It is necessary to treat wet hair particularly gently. Never dry or wring your hair rudely with a towel that will break some hair. Gently squeeze the water out with a towel and pat dry the hair.

Avoid ponytails or other hair styles that pull hair.

 Eat a balanced and healthy diet and plenty of vitamin B and iron. Many people's hair becomes sparse because of inadequate nutrition.

Vitamin B is important for the health of your hair. Getting enough vitamin B keeps your hair thick and reduces hair loss. Rich sources of vitamin B include fruits, vegetables, nuts and brown rice, among others.

A lack of iron diet can also cause slow hair growth. Good sources of iron include beef, pork, lamb, poultry, fish, green leafy vegetables and iron-rich cereals.

You can take vitamin supplements during pregnancy. Pregnancy vitamins include the right combination of vitamins needed for healthy hair, and also keep your nails and skin healthy.

Review your stress levels. Tension and high pressure often cause hair loss. If you have a way to remove the stressors of life, please consider doing so.

Some sources of stress are unavoidable, but usually disappear after a while. If you lose hair because of stress, your hair may grow back when tension is resolved.

Hair thinning is also a source of stress. Keep yourself calm, do everything you can, and help your hair stay healthy, such as using natural products, choosing a healthy lifestyle, and getting enough vitamins.

Use essential oils to make your hair thicker. Chamomile oil, lavender oil, rosemary oil, thyme oil, geranium oil, cedar oil and other essential oils can help thicken hair follicles.

Apply 10 to 20 drops of the essential oil of your choice to the scalp and massage the oil into the scalp with your fingers. Use your fingers to pour the essential oil down to the tip.

When shampooing, you can also add 3 to 5 drops of essential oil to the shampoo or conditioner.

Mix 5 to 10 drops of essential oil with 89 to 118 ml of castor oil, olive oil, jojoba oil or sunflower oil for deep care. Apply the oil to the hair and cover each hair carefully. Wrap the hair in a towel, let stand for 30 minutes, then wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner as usual.
