Hair ThickenersYoung Woman Upset With Hair Loss

If you are experiencing temporary or permanent thinning hair or hair loss consider using a cosmetic hair thickener or enhancer, as they are sometimes called. The advantages of using a hair thickener are that they are inexpensive, easy to apply, produce great results instantly and can be washed out at any time. No special knowledge is required to apply a hair thickener and just a little experimentation is all it takes to get great results.

Regardless of the cause or stage of thinning hair, a hair thickener can be used in combination with other re-growth treatments such as Minoxidil (Rogaine®) and others or even to improve a hair transplant! A hair thickener is often a great solution for temporary hair loss after pregnancy, illness or any other reason.

The disadvantage of hair thickeners is that like any cosmetic, some of these products can run or rub off, potentially embarrassing the user. Care should be taken to select a product that suits your lifestyle.

What’s a Hair Thickener?

Before and AfterA hair thickener is a cosmetic that produces dramatic visual results instantly by adding (usually) coloured fibers to the hair cuticle (the outside of the hair shaft) to thicken it. At the same time some of these fibers fall on the scalp to noticeably reduce the scalp contrast that normally shines through thinning hair. Hair thickeners do not regrow hair – a popular misconception.

Hair loss in women, whether due to female pattern baldness or Alopecia Areata can often be easily addressed with a cosmetic hair thickener.
