Default How did u thicken your hair STRANDS???

Hi ladies!!!

I'm still on a quest to find a good product that would thicken my hair strands. You see, my problem is that I have alot of hair but each strand is very thin, making it more prone to breakage. I don't know if BKT would be a good idea or maybe coating my hair with natural hair color.... Your advice is much needed here! Thanks!!!

You should try henna. A lot of ladies have experienced thicker strands because it coats the hair.

I've heard of henna as well. I' curious to know if there is anything else that could help since I've read that you have to be careful with henna.

I know I've done the Aphogee 2 Step protein treatments but I can't say its plumped my strands up.

Like you, I have thin strands but a lot of them, people always say I have thick hair but I know it isn't (or wasn't) true.

2 things that really helped are Henna and castor oil but I would say Henna the most since I'm not that consistant with castor oil. With each treatment I could feel and see my strands getting thicker. The last time I flatironed I could really feel how thick and heavy my had become. I wear a satin pocket bonnet at night when I've flatironed and before the ends would bend because my hair is actually to long for the pocket bonnet but now it doesn't because my ends are thicker and heavier.

I even got my cousin who suffers from alopecia on the Henna band wagon. She said it makes the few strands she still had thicker and the bald spots are filling in with fine hairs.
Just make sure you use BAQ Body Art Quality Henna. If the Henna has ppd in it, it can do more harm than good.

That is a beautiful braidout in your signature. What was your regimen for that? Also, how are you using henna in your regimen.

Pretty Hair!

Default Re: How did u thicken your hair STRANDS???

I have brown hair (for people that use weave my hair color nearly matches perfectly with a #4). To be precise, its really the very front of my hair that is that color and the rest of my tresses get darker. If I am not mistaken, Henna makes the hair jet black right? I like my hair color and would actually like to dye my hair a little light so that it CAN be a perfect match to a #4. Is there something else like Henna that I can use that wouldn't make my hair darker?

@bklynLadee Henna makes your hair red. Jet black hair is achieved when one does an Indigo treatment with the Henna.

well for me it was lots of deep conditioning and adding JBCO into my regimens. JBCO didn't make it grow but it did thicken my hair strands, so for that I am thankful

For those who use castor oil, do you apply it to your scalp or to your strands? Or both?

I agree with the henna because BKT makes the hair very straight (at least, mine) and it feels a lot "thinner."

I am a newbie and I always wanted to know how to thicken my thin hair. I actually considered just cutting it off and starting over but I would hate to do that.): More suggestions on thickening please.

You have to use Indigo w/ Henna (a 2-step process) to make one's hair jet black. Henna all by itself gives you red or orange tones. I use Henna and Indigo and have been for over 3 1/2 years.
