Tired of the endless use and trial of brand-name thickening shampoos with no success? Concoct your own mixture of shampoo, strictly for use on thin hair. It's possible to add volume while avoiding the harsh effects of chemical-heavy products. By creating your own shampoo, you'll soon flaunt thicker and fuller hair that's both natural and supportive of your lackluster locks.


Initiate a difference in your strands with this homemade thin-hair remedy. Mix 1 ounce of organic coconut oil, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and ½ teaspoon of apple-cider vinegar. Ensure that the mixture is well blended and thick enough to spread into your hair as a normal shampoo would.


Massage the blended mixture into your hair. After rinsing, follow up with the use of a lightweight conditioner. Repeat this with each shower, noticing an incredible difference in the texture and volume of your hair. This all-natural mix is perfect for any woman wanting to define their locks.


Experiment with different homemade shampoos to decide which one works best for your hair. However, give this recipe a try first. You might just find your hair fuller and thicker in no time.

Tips & Tricks


Practice experimenting with either mixture to find the thin-hair solution that works best for you. Each type of thin hair is different and may not take on the product as well as you may like.

Consider a weekly routine of applying coconut oil directly to the roots, enabling them to produce volume-heavy locks.

As an alternative solution, consider mixing your existing shampoo with powdered gelatin. This mixture will help increase volume and make your hair feel thicker.
