hair thickeners

Hair thickeners have to some extent resurged in recent times, due to a general growth in male grooming products on the market. Hair thickening products have also come a long way in terms of efficiency and providing a natural look. Long gone are the days when hair thickening products were nothing more than cheap, baseless products satisfying desperate men and women suffering from thin hair.

Despite the advancements in hair thickening products however, there are numerous hair thickeners on the market, and results will differ greatly from one hair thickening product to the next. Each hair thickener will have optimal results with certain types of hair and, of course, each user's expectations will have a large attitude on whether a particular hair thickening product works for them.

Hair thickening products cover a wide range of technologies, from products that simply clean the hair and thus remove heavy oils, to products that trap moisture in the hair shaft thus giving more body, through to products that actually bind real hair particles to the hair shaft thereby giving it more volume. Some hair thickeners come in sprays, others in creams, and some require that you hair needs to be blow-dried for maximum effect. Which method of hair thickening products works best for you will be a combination of your expectations, your hair type, and how much money you are willing to pay. The majority of hair thickeners however work by using a hair shaft's natural negative charge to attract polymers, which have a positive charge, thus trapping moisture causing the hair shaft to swell in diameter and appear thicker.

The main notable aspect about hair thickening products is that they simply do just that thicken hair. For those people with thin or light hair, then hair thickeners can add a significant amount of volume to the thinning area, giving the appearance of a fuller head of hair. Hair thickeners do not regrow hair, or delay the onset or progression of hair loss in any way. They are merely cosmetic solutions to thinning hair, and should be treated as such.
