Firstly, the system removes sebum, fatty acids and residue from the scalp, which may be clogging up hair follicles. A lightweight conditioner then optimises hair resilience and helps to control the moisture balance of the scalp, ensuring hair is nourished and moisturised without being oily or weighed down. Finally, a lightweight treatment uses a combination of antioxidants and botanicals to refresh the scalp and volumize the hair.

The final step in the NIOXIN Hair System Kit 2 for Noticeably Thinning Natural Hair systems includes SPF 15 to protect the scalp against the Australian sun. Scalp protection ensures hair does not become dry, brittle and thin due to UV exposure.

Common questions about thickening your hair answered…

Does coconut oil thicken hair?

Coconut oil can help stimulate the growth of thick hair and help improve the speed of hair growth. Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids and vitamins which help to nourish and condition the scalp, whilst removing sebum build-up that may be clogging hair follicles.

It is advisable, however, to only use coconut oil that has been formulated as a mask or wash-off hair treatment as coconut oil can be comedogenic and cause an oil build-up in your hair. If you have fine hair, you should avoid using coconut oil on clean, dry hair or as a styling product.

How do you get thicker hair naturally?

If you want to get thicker hair naturally, there are some lifestyle changes you can make to try to improve the thickness of your locks.

• Diet

Ensure you are eating a balanced and healthy diet. You may also wish to include a lot of eggs, berries and spinach in your diet. Eggs are rich in both protein and biotin, berries contain antioxidants and vitamins and spinach is loaded with vitamins and iron, all of which may help to promote the growth of thick hair.

• UV rays

The Australian sun emits UV rays which can break down the protein structures in your hair, making your hair thinner and preventing it from growing. To avoid UV damage to your hair, wear products that contain SPF and UV protection or try to wear a hat when you are spending a large amount of time outdoors.
