These actually work.
There are a number of reasons you could be experiencing hair thinning, or maybe you’ve always lusted for thicker, more voluminous hair. Pregnancy, changes in hormones, a new birth control pill, or maybe it’s hereditary — these can all be causes.
Regardless of why you may be in this boat, there are tons of products, vitamins, serums, and so much more to help you restore your hair and your life. If you haven’t already consulted your doctor, there may be additional pills and topicals you can use to learn how to thicken hair, to help fix receeding hairlines, and balding.
But if you’re just looking for a quick fix or nip what could be a bigger problem in the butt before it gets worse, we have some products for you to try. Ranging from mousses, to rice milk, and to just plain old shampoo, we’ve got you and your hair thickening dreams covered.
