The hair thickening shampoo, which is also known as the hair volumizing shampoo, the extra body shampoo, and the hair strengthening shampoo, does its magic of thickening hair strands by not just having its active ingredients stick to the hair strands, but also stimulating the hair follicles that facilitate the growth of hair.
Due to the nature of this type of shampoo, it is important that it must be used regularly and judiciously. The active ingredients that give the hair strands an illusion of thickness will certainly be washed away when the hair is washed. For best results, one should stick to the exact same brand and type of shampoo to retain the illusory thickness – unless the shampoo itself loses its effectiveness and aggravates hair thinning and hair loss instead of trying to cover it up. One should therefore try to use a shampoo that can be used daily and contains no ingredients that can damage the hair and its underlying skin over time. Furthermore, unwashed shampoo residue can also aggravate hair loss, especially when the hair follicles are blocked off.
Both men and women can suffer from thinning hair. But due to their different bodily make-ups, the hair thickening shampoo does have men’s and women’s variants that best fit those make-ups.
Because men are generally more active than women, their hair gets more exposed to the elements, as well as sweat. This kind of exposure is a huge trigger for hair thinning; especially when the natural oils that protect the hair strands from elemental damage get stripped off. It should be no surprise that men’s hair strengthening shampoos usually contain more active ingredients than women’s hair strengthening shampoos. Of course, synthetic ingredients will cause undue harm. They not just attack the protective oils, but also irritate the underlying skin and therefore affect the hair follicles that facilitate hair growth in general.
Women’s hair volumizing shampoos generally focus on their coverage area, especially when there are women who want to maintain their long hair while protecting it from unnatural hair loss that can be detected when combing or brushing it. As with men’s shampoos, it is recommended that women’s shampoos must contain as much natural ingredients as possible to prevent the stripping of protective oils and skin irritation.
In order to maintain the effectiveness of the shampoo and consequently allow the hair to naturally thicken by itself; several hair measures must be taken. First, use brushes and combs that have wide teeth. This ensures that hair fibers do not get stuck between the teeth and are forcibly pulled out. Second, wash the hair less often. Give the hair some time to replenish the protective oils that are lost when hair is washed. One can wash the hair every other day. Third, employ the towel-drying and air-drying method instead of resorting to a hair dryer. Sure, a hair dryer will make the job quick; but excessive heat can damage the hair’s cells, making the hair prone to thinning and breakage. Finally, only style the hair when absolutely necessary. The excessive chemicals contained in hair styling products can damage the hair.
