Do you guys have a regimen to thicken your hair?

My ends/the base of my hair is SERIOUSLY thin, and I'm trying to thicken it out. Does shea butter work? I recently purchased this http://www.etsy.com/listing/158116591/8oz-natural-shea-butter-pomade-w-basil?ref=pr_shop" rel="nofollow - http://www.etsy.com/listing/158116591/8oz-natural-shea-butter-pomade-w-basil?ref=pr_shop so I can baggy my ends. It's working AMAZINGLY with softness and style definition, but can shea thicken hair?

If not, what are you guys using? And should "baggying" with these products work better? I need routines, product suggestions, everything! I cannot wear my hair down because my base/bottom/ends are sooo thin.

Help?!

I just started taking Black Currant seed oil daily. I take three 500 mg capsules per day. This is supposed to thicken hair. I also take Maxi Hair tablets daily. Biotin 5000mcg may also help. 
I recently did an egg yolk, yogurt, coconut oil, coconut cream conditioner for 2 hours and flat ironed afterward. My hair looked HUGE after that natural protein  treatment was rinsed out and infused in the shafts with heat. The supplements I take also play a synergistic role. But It is a work in progress because I naturally have thin and fine follicles. It has been that way all my life and I will likely always deal with it on some level because it is part of my DNA.
Please click THANKS above if you appreciate this post. I need some points please.

Here's what makes my hair even thicker. Mind you, I have relaxed (though I believe it's texlaxed) hair.
1. Deep protein treatment at least once every three weeks. I use Joico K-Pak, which many have said thickened their hair.
2. Light protein treatment once a week (the weeks I'm not using Joico K-Pak). I use Aubrey GPB. 
3. Henna+indigo+amla my hair a couple of days after a relaxer (I'm thinking about adding brahmi in there too)
4. Moisturize and seal EVERY day. I use a ceramide oil to seal.
5. When getting a relaxer, I apply olive oil into the mix so it takes longer to process my hair. Also, before neutralizing my hair, I use a LIGHT protein conditioner and leave it on for 5 minutes.

Yup, it's not too complicated. I've seen changes in my hair doing these methods.

Try castor oil on your scalp for extra growth and thickness. Also you may need to trim your thin ends so you can start fresh

Thanks for the suggestions! But I am wary of putting castor oil on my hair. Won't that inhibit growth? More research on my part.

As it turns out, SHEA BUTTER DOES thicken hair. It thickens and grows out your hair even more depending on how you use it. I read on a forum about trying a shea butter wash instead of shampooing, and it is definitely working. I do this twice a week and hopefully my hair will improve in the next month. I want thickness AND length with this routine.

^Oh wow, I never heard about shea butter, I always hear about castor oil. Honestly, castor oil does NOT inhibit growth - I used it in my growth aid about a year ago (a sulfur mix.... I don't use growth aids anymore due to financial reasons), and my hair grew a LOT. BUT it is not proven that castor oil can thicken your hair - I forgot what the specific study had said, but some scientific hair website talks about it and they claimed that it might be massaging your hair that thickens the strands/makes it grow more. IDK, but it has worked for most people.

I think that's the same with shea butter. No scientific proof, but it just seems to work.

So how often to you use castor oil? And do you apply it just to your scalp, or can it legitimately thicken your hair strands?

I'm just getting into a hair growing and thickening regime. I use henna to color and thicken my hair. I also mix conditioner and a little neutralizer together before I get a relaxer (my grandma does my relaxer and she was an old school beautician and she has a tendency to bring the perm down to far). Too much relaxing can make your hair thin for sure. I also sometimes use a protein treatment or just do an egg mask before I wash it.

I HAVE NOT THICK HAIR .....

Personally I think we are born with a certain amt of hair follicles. If we shed hair from those follicles, we can re-grow them (in some cases). But can we really create new hair follicles to make a thicker head of hair . Or maybe do something to make each strand of hair thicker. Is that sustainable ????   Inquiring minds want to know.

Bump!
So, what worked, ladies?
I want to thicken my hair too.

I'd also like to know too. It seems that anything that thickens  / strengthens hair makes my protein sensitive, Type 4, fine hair dry. hard & crispy - and in extreme cases causes breakage.

So far, I've tried:
Aphogee 2 step Pinch Pinch Pinch: this was before I was natural

UBH conditioner (first ingredient Aloe Vera) Ermm: result, after 2 weeks (DC'ed once a week): hard, dry hair, which began to fuse together

Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Pimento Oil
(also contains Castor, Grape, Peppermint & Eucalypus oils) - used it on my temples initially - saw considerable improvement. Started using it all over my scalp and hair. Result: dry, hard, crispy hair and because I think because I began to massage too enthusiastically my temples began to thin out again. Extreme fusing of hair. It was taking nearly 2 hours to unbraid six plaits. Hair started to look ashy grey, coils shrank, naps disappeared, sheen disappeared.

Vatika Coconut oil with Amla - not sure about this because I began using it 2 weeks ago, whilst I was using the UBH. I used it in an overnight prepoo mix once a week. I really liked how strong my strands felt when I washed my hair, before DC'ing. I may try it again without any other protein if my hair ever goes back to normal.

BUMP

@loves2laugh - re your post I noticed you mentioned two products that fuse your hair together.  

I've had to tweak my products & ingredients because of similar issues.  The fusing, pasting, sticking problem was madness!!

Thanks for replying!
I wonder if the OP benefited from using a shea butter creme on her hair, but she hasn't logged on in a while...

Interesting thread. I lost a lot of fulness and next time I see my dr I plan on asking what he recommends for thickening my hair. For now ima try some of these tips.

S&f my new products have Shea butter in it and they seem to be thickening my hair strands a bit but it could also be the keratin.

My Thick Hair Regimen:

1) Egg: Egg is great for hair and skin and it’s got everything you need to build up the proteins in your hair to keep it thicker and promote new hair growth.

2) Orange Juice: Orange juice is also a really great way to promote thicker hair and smells super refreshing. It promotes hair growth, thickens hair, and is great for treating dandruff.

3) Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is great for your hair and it’s easy to get thicker hair when you use this tropical oil as a treatment.

4) Olive Oil: Olive oil is full of what your hair and skin need to stay healthy and vibrant. Keeping a bottle of olive oil and in the bathroom is highly recommended.

5) Avocado: Avocado is fruit that offers amazing benefits for both hair and skin. This green, creamy fruit is great for promoting naturally thicker hair and will leave your locks shiny and luxurious.
6) GKhair Deep Conditioner Hair Mask: A complete reconstructive product. Truly penetrates the hair shaft making each hair strand strong and thicker that is less prone to breakage.
