Tips to get Volumizing Hair

Eat your Greens 

Healthy hair growth starts from inside. One should choose good edible and iron rich foods like spinach, kale, chard, beans and tofu to increase hair volume. All these foods are great sources of iron, biotin and zinc that help in supporting healthy hair growth. Biotin is also found in beans, banana, eggs, cauliflower, peanuts, lentils, and salmon. For thick and healthy hair, protein is also essential which you can get from chicken, lean red meats, eggs, nuts, and olive oil. 

Also, it is recommended to drink plenty of water which will keep the strands supple and sleek. 

Massage your Scalp 

The hair follicles in the scalp get the desired nourishment with healthy circulation. Massage is an easy, excellent and a delightful way to rev up the circulation. Regular scalp massage helps in stimulating the blood flow into the follicles and plump up the thin hair and further increase the hair volume. 

Take up a few drops of any good hair oil for hair growth like Luster Volumizing hair oil onto your finger tips and rub it all over your scalp in circular motion for a few minutes before you shampoo.

  •      Rinse your hair with cold water 
  •      Use a soft t-shirt to dry your hair and finish off with a serum.
