It can feel like an uphill climb that takes time and patience; but once you get there, the results are worth it. If you fall into the latter group, you want thicker hair but don't know where to start, don't worry. We've got your back!

Below are 10 easy-to-implement tips on how to make your thin hair naturally thicker, all of which will help you achieve your goal of luscious locks. You won't need to spend hours researching or cashing out hundreds of bucks to make that happen. These simple changes in your lifestyle will make all the difference. 

1. Stop Stressing Out

Stress can be a big reason why people experience hair loss or thinning at the crown, among other areas on the scalp. If you notice your mane is thinner than usual and you're under extra-high levels of stress, that's definitely worth investigating, it might just be the culprit. 

Cut out the negatives and try to be as calm and Zen as possible. Take up meditation, yoga, or other types of relaxation techniques if you have to. Even just take time out of your day to disconnect for a little while

When you do things like this, not only will hair loss decrease but also hair growth will increase because your body won't be placed under any more undue stress than it already is (which can affect your scalp health). 

2. Vitamin Supplementation

This should be an obvious one seeing that supplements are food-based; they're meant to nourish the body without having to rely on having the same nutritional benefits from actual food. 

Many people are vitamin-deficient without even realizing it, which can lead to thinning locks. If you feel like your diet isn't giving you everything your body needs, adding these nutrients into your regimen can be a great step to take. 

Some vitamins that will help nourish your hair and make it naturally thicker (and healthier) include:

• Vitamin A (helps improve the thickness, strength, and volume of hair as well as ensure adequate growth).

• Vitamin B12 (reduces hair loss; improves moisture retention).

• Vitamin C.

• Vitamin D3 (prevents alopecia and poor scalp health). 

• Biotin (supports healthy hair growth).

Of course, you should talk to your doctor about what supplements (if any) he recommends for you first and foremost. Make sure they're not going to interfere with any other medication or condition you have before considering them. 

And always follow directions for how much to take. Bonus points if you choose one that also includes omega-3s.

3. Upgrade Your Brush Game

It may seem frivolous or intuitively obvious, but brushing your locks too hard could have an adverse effect on thickness. If someone brushes their hair aggressively to try to increase volume at their roots, it will actually cause more hair loss over time. 

To avoid this, it's best to use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle hair before shampooing to prevent breakage. Then, use a boar bristle brush when you style to encourage natural waves and increase fullness. 

4. Try An Argan Oil Condition Treatment

We've talked about this great oil before because it can be a true life-saver for many people who deal with dry or parched hair. Nisim Intl. says that if your strands are naturally thin, this is an easy fix that should help add volume and bounce back into your hair. 

To do so, simply mix an ample amount of pure argan oil with the same amount of any lightweight conditioner. Apply while hair is still damp instead of wet and massage into the scalp while focusing on ends and mid-sections to avoid weighing down the top layer of locks. 

Let the treatment sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out, then shampoo and condition as normal. You can repeat this once per week to see results over time. 

5. Stop Shampooing Your Mane Every Day

You might have been told at some point that lathering up your scalp with shampoo every day is good for getting rid of buildup—but the opposite is actually true. Shampooing your hair every day can be really harsh on the scalp and removes natural oils that help to protect and moisturize the hair.

For a while, it's worth taking some time off in between washes to allow natural oils to do their job. Instead, try shampooing every other day (at most) or at 2-3 days intervals and using a hydrating conditioner to keep strands nourished in between washes.

6. Get A Haircut Every Few Months

Another factor that causes thinning? Overgrown strands. Longer than normal hairs often weigh down the roots of the hair under them, which gradually stretches out the follicle at their base. 

To prevent this from happening, seek out regular haircuts even if you're trying to grow your mane longer. If you need some styling inspiration, I advise "texturizing and layering your locks slowly until you get the desired look."

7. Get More Sleep

Sleep is essential for both physical and mental health —so it's no wonder that a lack of shuteye can affect more than just how well (or not) you function each day. According to dermatologists, chronic sleep deprivation has been shown to lead to hair thinning. 

When we are tired, our bodies produce excess cortisol which inhibits the growth of healthy cells including those in the hair follicles. Try to rack up 7-9 hours per night and remember: A good pillow is key!

8. Make Sure You're Exfoliating Your Scalp

If you're experiencing thinning hair, it might not be entirely your fault. Scalp buildup can clog the follicles and prevent hairs from surfacing. To banish built-up gunk, using an acid exfoliant like Bumble and Bumble's Hair Powder, which dissolves impurities without drying out strands. 

You can also use this method to avoid dryness: "Combine equal parts powder with shampoo in the palm of your hand before massaging into your scalp." After two minutes, rinse thoroughly so it doesn't look white when you blow-dry.

9. Give The Dermaroller A Try

A derma-roller (a handheld roller covered in tiny needles) may sound scary, but it's actually FDA-approved and safe for skin. The tiny pricks on the skin help to boost collagen production, which then creates conditions on the scalp that are more conducive to thicker hair.

10. Make A DIY Scalp Mask

Applying lukewarm castor oil to your scalp for 15 minutes before hopping in the shower and shampooing as usual. The results? Shiny locks with added thickness.
