Does anyone know of an inexpensive product that really thickens hair naturally (if possible)? Or grows back hair without minoxidil?

I've not tried it, but you might want to look into the copper peptide hair serums.

Henna will definitely thicken hair and help with many other hair and scalp problems.

But you only can use it if you don’t color your hair.

How do you use the Henna? Is it a shampoo?

I used to buy it in powder form. You mix it with water, make a hair mask and keep for an hour or two. The longer - the better.
It thickens and nourish your hair. You can also buy it in different color tones.

I know today there are creams and shampoos with henna, but i am not sure it will work as good as the original powder.

Is it possible to get henna without hair dye? I don't need or want to dye my hair. How about coconut oil? What does that do for your hair?

Oh no. Henna doesn't come with hair dye. It may give different tones absolutely naturally.

There is henna without tinting properties as well. It called Original, i believe.

I remember my grandmother always treated her hair with the mix of henna and basma (both are natural products. One gave it reddish tone and another bluish black. The mix gave her dark brown color she was looking for)

I like masks with coconut oil. But it doesn't thicken hair, only nourish and softens.

YB the hyperlink you posted doesn't take me to any particular henna powder, and in searching there are quite a few different types so wondering if you got any particular recommendations.

Hi TheresaMary,

Not really. I actually wanted to show there are multiple products with henna.

As with everything, you’ll get best results with unprocessed henna, but if you need convenience - there are creams and shampoos, which will also help at some degree.

I am having very good results with L'Oreal Volume Filler shampoo, conditioner and gel. It seemed to help the first time I used it and my hair has gotten to feel much thicker in the few months since I started. I got mine at WalMart for about $4 each, so it's very affordable.
I also have been taking 2000 mg of Biotin (a supplement also available at WalMart) and am seeing results. It doesn't happened overnight, but it's so easy to swallow two pills a day for long term results.Smile

Adequate protein intake is important, as well as getting enough sleep and minimizing stress in your life. Cortisol the stress hormone can make hair shed.

Ive had great success with Alterna Bamboo Volumizing Shamp/Condish + 48 hour thickening spray and then some 3-in-1 styling cream (all Alterna Bamboo). Lots of shine and body and this line smells so fresh and purrrrdy too! Its a green scent.

PandoraBeauty.com has the best prices Ive found (not affiliated).

I've heard Castor Oil works wonders for thin hair. I don't use it on my scalp, but I do use it for my eye brows on the sparse areas and it helps fill them back in.

I also started using the L'Oreal Volume Filler shampoo and conditioner and it does definitely make my hair seem thicker and more full. I have only used it a few times so far so it may get even better.
My all-time fave though is Alterna Bamboo 48 sustainable volume spray-in treatment. Love this stuff and it really is worth the price.

I have long hair and I like the extra volume and poof, after all I am a native Texas girl! And you know what I like to say "Bigger the hair, closer to God", haha.

Really Sevastra? Castor oil has worked for you in your eyebrow area? I'm losing some eyebrow hair after years of plucking and waxing. I'd like to fill in those areas. How often do you put it on? How long did it take before you noticed a difference? Do you have to keep doing it to maintain?

Ollie-
I want to mention that I have decently thick eyebrows to begin with so results will vary. I try to put CO on every night. I forget sometimes. When I began using it, I noticed a difference within about 1.5 weeks. In the areas that my brows were a bit sparse from plucking, they had filled in. Along with that, my eyebrows in general were fuller than before. I also noticed that I wasn't shedding as many hairs.

You do have to use the stuff religiously which can be a downside.

There are a ton of reviews on makeupalley that you take a gander at if you want!
