How do I make my hair grow thicker?

Before buying a product that promises to give you thicker locks, start looking at yourself from within. Ask yourself if you've been eating right. Nutritionists say that protein is a hair-enriching source, so include food like lean meat, chicken, nuts, yogurt, eggs, and milk in your diet. Couple this protein-rich diet with enough sleep and exercise, and you're on your way to healthier hair. Some of us are simply predisposed to thin hair (thank your parents to thank for that). If this is the case, you can make your hair appear thicker with the right haircut. Ask your trusted stylist to give you layers to give you the illusion of fuller locks (one length hair can look weigh down on your scalp, making it look thinner and flatter than it already is). When styling your hair, hair expert Philippe Tordjman says to apply as little product on your roots, as this can weigh your hair down. Instead, flip your head over and use your fingers to brush your hair downwards to create a lift in your hair. Flip your head back up and spritz on hairspray at least six inches away from your mane to lock in the look.
