What is hair thickening?
Hair thickening is a broad term that refers to either:
- the permanent process of hair transplants
- the temporary hair treatments that make hair appear thicker.
These treatments work to maintain and improve the quality of the existing hair and reduce breakage and hair loss. On the other hand, a hair transplant is a procedure that only needs to take place once to result in a thicker head of hair.
Although there are natural hair care techniques that help to slow down the process of hair breakage and hair loss, alopecia in both men and women is usually genetic and will occur at some stage throughout a person’s life.
Usually, individuals turn to natural hair care methods to improve their hair strength and slow down hair breakage with the aim to delay baldness and receding hairlines.
What are the natural remedies for hair thickening?
- Egg Hair Treatments: Egg hair masks are high in protein which helps to strengthen hair follicles to result in thicker hair.
- Olive Oil Hair Treatments: The Omega3 properties in olive oil help to promote thicker and healthier hair when applied directly to the scalp.
- A Nutrient Rich Diet: For thicker hair, food that’s rich in protein, fatty acids and Omega-3 are beneficial.
- Avocado Hair Treatment: Rich in vitamin E, Avocado is an impressive moisturiser which can be made into a hair mask mixed with olive oil to promote the growth of healthy hair.
- Castor Oil: castor oil is an effective hair treatment for hair thickening when rubbed into the scalp as part of a hair mask treatment.
Natural hair thickening methods will help to keep your hair healthy and luscious but this isn’t a solution that has a lasting effect. A hair surgery through the FUE method will be the only way to permanently recover your hair.
What causes hair thinning?
Both men and women may experience hair thinning in their lifetime which can be caused by various factors. Thinning hair can be caused by many things:
- poor nutrition
- overuse of hair products containing harsh chemicals
Women can also experience hair thinning from pregnancy and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Can hair thickening be achieved through a hair transplant?
For the first few months after a hair transplant, the hair follicles will be quite delicate. Especially while they begin to settle in their new place. Once they’ve settled they will blend seamlessly with the untouched hair follicles.
Within a year, the hair will begin to grow and fill the areas that were previously thinning to result in a fuller head of hair.
Using the FUE hair transplant method for hair thickening
A hair transplant is a permanent hair thickening solution that only needs to take place once in a lifetime. It’s a minimally invasive procedure whereby the surgeon removes the hair follicles that are healthy and robust.
These grafts are then inserted one-by-one into tiny incisions in the scalp, made by the surgeon, in areas where the hair is thinning. The FUE method is a preferred method of hair transplantation, compared to the FUT method.
It only causes minimal tissue scarring where the hair follicles were removed. Those will disappear when your natural hair grows back. The hair follicles that are grafted from your donor area are more resistant to DHT, the hormone that is responsible for hair loss.
Does frequent hair washing prevent hair thickening?
Washing your hair every day is a huge no because it will dry out your hair and scalp and prevent hair thickening. Shampoos are designed to strip the hair of built-up oils which comprises dead skin cells and product residue.
In the process of cleaning the hair of this build-up, “good oils” that are required for healthy hair growth. Those are also stripped as even the best shampoos can’t differentiate between the good and bad oils. This results in a dry scalp that can lead to excessive hair breakage and can cause hair to fall out.
Using mild shampoos and washing the hair 2-3 times per week can help to keep the scalp from becoming too dry. This will maintain healthy hair growth in the short-term. Unfortunately, it will not stop long-term hair loss which is unavoidable due to genetics and other factors.

Conclusion: a permanent hair thickening solution
Haircare shampoos can be used to help improve and maintain the strength of the hair and promote hair thickening. On the other hand a hair transplant is a permanent solution for hair loss that only requires one procedure to achieve thicker hair that lasts.
The hair surgery takes the root of the hair, which never loses their genetic data, to produce strong growing hair evenly across the scalp. Even when the hair is transplanted to another location on the scalp, the hair continues to grow vigorously.
