LOSS OF DENSITY Is it possible to thicken hair naturally?

It’s very common to want a different hair type than the one we have... some of us spend hours straightening our curly locks and those with fine hair dream of a long, thick mane. Thin hair, don’t care? Thin hair is pretty too! But if you do want thicker hair, first you’ll need to determine the cause: is your hair naturally fine or has it lost its density over time?

Let’s take a look at some natural techniques for thickening fine hair

There are two types or causes of fine hair: hair that is naturally fine and hair that has become fine over time. The former is a result of physiological or genetic factors (so there's not much that can be done), the hair shaft (the hair itself) is small in diameter and the hair therefore lacks volume. If you have this type of thin hair, the best option is to give it the illusion of thicker hair by playing with volume using simple styling and drying techniques. Try blow-drying your hair with your head upside down or building body at the roots for example. You can combine this with volumising haircare products. And remember to use dry shampoo to add texture and volume to the roots.

In the case of the latter, hair gradually thins after the age of 35. The hair fibre becomes thinner and weaker and the scalp lacks vitality and is often dry. As a result, even if the person doesn’t experience hair loss, they’ll feel that they have less hair due to the loss of density. The solution is to target the hair fibre with re-densifying, thickening, natural hair care products that will revitalise the scalp.

His tips for thickening hair naturally

To revitalise hair that has become damaged and thinner over time, I recommend you begin with a 3-week Klorance treatment containing olive extract. It's a natural and very effective solution to combat hair ageing.

For this treatment phase, that will revive the hair and scalp, the leave-in concentrate is essential because, when massaging into the scalp, it will work its magic where the hair needs a boost.

Use it in combination with the shampoo and conditioner from the same range to add even more thickening powers and vitality from roots to ends.

After this 3-week treatment phase, I recommend you carry out the complete ritual once a week to prevent hair ageing and to preserve the quality of the hair fibre.

What people are saying

Whenever I find my hair feeling thin and brittle, I use it to restore its density. I spray on the concentrate on washed and towel dried hair. As I don’t use a hair dryer and I have long hair, this "thickness and vitality concentrate" has 2 hours to penetrate the hair fibre and do its job. It makes such a difference.

What’s better for naturally thickening my hair? Olive or flaxseed?

Olive extract is particularly suitable for women whose hair is thin due to their age rather than genetics. Its antioxidant and redensifying action acts as a youth elixir for hair that has grown weaker over time. Give your hair the radiance it had when you were 20!

Flaxseed fibre is great for those who have thin, flat hair that lacks volume naturally. It provides texture and volume from root to tip with a lightweight feel. Hair stays straight thanks to this natural ally, it looks better than ever!
