Can anyone please help me? I have a really thin hair. Like you can see my scalp. And i really wanted my hair to be thicker without spending to much money. Can you recommend anything?

Is your hair thin from damage or...? Some people have naturally thin hair and you can't do anything about that. But if you think it's from damage I've been using Jbco olive oil mix putting it on my scalp and massaging. My hair has not gotten back to how it originally was yet but it's getting there, that's working for me.

try unflavored gelatin. either add one tablespoon of gelatin on your shampoo, or do this:

Gelatin Protein treatment:

For anyone who is interested

Hair should be wet before applying the gelatin, also if you have a lot of product build up, it would be a good time to clarify your hair, before applying the protein.

Purchase a box of Knox Gelatine (or any type of pure colorless gelatin)
It comes in individual packets. (about the size of tea bags)
Mix 1/2 packet with 1/2 cup of spring water (can add more water if you need it)
Remember this is a GEL do not let mix sit, use it as soon as you mix it. After 5 minutes it starts to thicken, and is harder to apply, because it clumps.
Quickly and thoroughly apply to each hair strand.
Let it harden on your hair (it does not harden like the aphogee) but it gets hard.
I left it on for 10 minutes.
You can sit under a hooded dryer if you desire.
Rinse all gel from hair and proceed with your deep conditioning step.

I don't know if it works, but I want to try because I also have thin hair. Oh, some say that castor oil thickens your hair, the only problem is that castor oil is a very thick oil, so it is a bit hard to manage it, unless you warm it up first.

Coconut oil has helped my hair. Mine naturally thick though, I part my hair in the middle and apply in the line, the. Part hair ear to ear and apply in the line. Carrot oil thickened my hair in the past, I used ors carrot oil in a jar. I didn't overdo it with the like though, I did it like once a week or twice and it was at night before bed.

What are you washing your hair with? This can be major to thinning. Good Luck!

Some  people are BORN with baby fine strands and very few of  them. A lot of these people may be from India, Caucasian or mixed with  those. NOTHING is going to make them have more hairs on their head.Nothing can change your DNA. I remember my Black mother  telling me to brush my hair forward to make it sort of like big Afro hair.. It did not work.  My hair flopped on top and just frizzed from all the stress. I remember  my  mother getting ANGRY with  me that I could not make my hair bigger. I think I got several whippings because she thought I was doing something wrong to make it thin.

Some coatings can make the strands appear a little bigger temporarily  but it is not permanent and very subtle at best. 
The best advice I can give you is to just accept yourself  just like everyone else is learning to  accept the hair they were handed.... We  thin fine girls have to do the same imo.

OR there are always wigs

try castrol oil and moroccan oil.
Both are good and working for fine hair.

LadyAradia speaks the truth. i also have thin hair and when i brush it you see the scalp. i've tried everything and my hair remains thin.

the best thing you can do is reduce shedding/breakage, keep hair healthy and let it grow. reducing breakage will help your hair remain as full as possible. keeping a healthy diet/taking vitamins helps on the nutritional side to prevent deficiencies that thins and breaks hair.

You've gotten good suggestions OP. Whatever you try, remember nothing will change overnight. Give it time.
Scalp massages also helps

Good Luck

Loreal came out with a new volumizing line that's supposed to give long term results. Anyone know with continued use, would the results be permanent or would they eventually fade?

I am going to try the gelatin + water tip I quoted on the first page. My hair is looking great now, really soft, straight and healthy but the volume disappeared and it looks too thin, so I need to try something.

I did the gelatin mix yesterday and will be doing it twice a week to see if it will really thicken my hair. I am glad I found this thread today, because I have been adding way more than half a cup of water, no wonder the mix never got "harder" on my hair.

Depending on what you're willing to try: 

When I was relaxed and noticed my hair was damaged and thin, I started to use the aphogee line and which really helped especially their protein treatment. As a natural, I realized that the crown of my hair is rather fine and very easily damaged with too much manipulation. So I am going to try the aphogee again and see if it helps which I strongly believe it will. I also use Aubrey Organics GPB Shampoo when I believe I need to "thicken" my hair with protein and I see a difference after every wash. I even feel that my hair is stronger as soon as I apply the shampoo. Also I have tried MillCreek Biotin Conditioner and I saw my hair was fuller within 3 uses. Everyone is different though.

Hope that helps!

Massage with coconut oil and olive oil is really very effective and if you want instant results you can take advice from professional hair experts for better results.

In my hair journey there was a few problems i faced with thinning; before i was using "no lye boxed relaxer" had a small case of calcium buildup on hair and changed to lye relaxer hair been happy soft and shiny ever since; wearing to much tight braids,weaves etc can cause thinning try styles that's not to tight on the scalp (wigs); also castor oil has been amazing for hair growth and thickness can't live without it

Alot of people seem to have success with JBCO, but I didn't notice increased thickness. I would suggest scalp massages with your oil of choice.. I use coconut or jojoba oil.
