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
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.
