2-minute read

If you’re asking yourself the question - how can I thicken my hair? - you’re certainly not alone. Every year, millions of men notice changes in the thickness of their hair, which is often a result of the early stages of male pattern hair loss. Read on to discover our top tips on how to thicken fine hair and learn about how Sons may be able to help you. 

Try hair loss medication

Millions of men are affected by male pattern hair loss every year, which can cause your hair to thin over time. Thankfully, two medications have been scientifically proven to successfully treat hair loss in men - Finasteride and Minoxidil

Taken in tablet form, Finasteride works by blocking the production of the hormone DHT, which is the primary cause of male pattern hair loss. Then, Minoxidil stimulates blood and oxygen flow to your scalp, which can revitalise shrunken hair follicles and potentially lead to regrowth. When combined, Finasteride and Minoxidil are perhaps your best shot at reversing the impact of male pattern hair loss. Take a look at our hair loss plans to find the ideal treatment for you. 

Consider biotin 

Although not scientifically proven to treat hair loss or hair thinning, biotin has been shown to improve the structure and health of hair in some men. This is because biotin improves your body’s keratin structure, which is a vital protein that makes up your skin, nails, and hair. 

People who are biotin deficient may experience hair loss or thinning, so bolstering your biotin levels could potentially be a big help. Our popular full works treatment plan consists of biotin in tablet form, making it easy for you to ensure your body has sufficient levels of the vitamin it needs to thrive. 

Improve your diet 

It’s no surprise that your diet can directly impact the growth and structure of your hair follicles. Ensuring your diet is rich in iron and zinc means that your hair cells are strong and gives them the best chance of growing healthier. Thankfully, you can receive sufficient levels of zinc and iron from widely available foods, including red meat, leafy greens, and legumes. However, if you’re worried that you might be nutrient deficient, it’s worth taking a daily supplement to ensure your hair has all the nutrients it requires to grow sufficiently. 

Protect your hair from the elements 

While we’re all aware of the importance of protecting our skin from the sun, it’s also important to protect our hair from UV rays. UV rays can damage hair follicles, causing them to dry out. If you spend a significant amount of time outside in the sun, always wear a cap to keep the sun rays off your hair. Also, conditioner offers additional protection against UV rays, so it’s worth conditioning your hair in the morning if you’re planning to spend the day outside. 

The verdict: How can I thicken my hair? 

Ultimately, one of the key ways to thicken your hair is to decide on the best course of treatment. If you’ve recently noticed thinning hair or a receding hairline, you may be experiencing the early signs of male pattern hair loss.
