How to Get Thicker Hair at Home

You may think you’re alone in the struggle to achieve thicker hair, but the statistics show otherwise. By age 35, two-thirds of American men experience some degree of hair loss that worsens with time.¹ Female pattern hair loss (FPHL) typically manifests later in life, affecting nearly half of women in the United States by the time they reach 50-years-old.

While prevalent, treating hair loss for thicker hair can be complicated for individuals without prior experience. Most restoration methods promise fuller results, but the protocol, technology and time commitment varies considerably.

It’s safe to say that most people prefer a stress-free, minimally-invasive approach to thicker hair. But, even those who’ve undergone hair loss surgery often look to increase their odds of success with extra, compatible treatments. To fight hair thinning and shedding without a single (or another) operation or prescription, try the following strategies:

Unwind and Assess

Some hair loss cases can be attributed to massive stress. Telogen effluvium (TE) usually occurs after a major and often traumatic life event, such as a death in the family or job loss. While TE usually clears up with time, ongoing and unresolved emotional strain can leave you thinning and shedding far longer than the six to 12-month norm. Patients suffering from persistent TE should work to minimize or eradicate the lifestyle factors contributing to anxiety and anguish. Reevaluating your career, exercise habits and even diet can help re-balance your mental state for both emotional and physical wellbeing. Patients with stress-induced TE often find relaxing hobbies help, such as meditation, yoga or simple brisk walking. In addition to de-stressing, eating a well-balanced diet with the right vitamins and nutrients – particularly those which promote healthy hair growth – clear any nutritional deficiencies that cause hair follicles to become sedentary. If you already suffer from a hereditary hair loss condition (androgenic alopecia) like female pattern hair loss or male pattern baldness, making these changes can assist with any additional hair loss not directly caused by genetics.

Consider LLLT

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is non-invasive approach toward hair loss treatment. Using lasers that stimulate and energize cells within the hair follicles, LLLT technologies allow for healthier, fuller hair. There are many ways to undergo LLLT treatment for hair loss, including clinical (in-office) domes and hair brushes. But, the only hands-free, at-home method of LLLT is a portable laser cap for hair regrowth. Capillus laser caps deliver three primary benefits to help individuals attain thicker hair:

  • Boost cell metabolism and blood flow at the scalp for healthier hair follicles
  • Fuel oil glands for shinier, more manageable hair
  • Encourage melanin production to darken gray hairs
