Can you really make your thin/normal hair thicker/coarse?

Lovely_CurlzLovely_Curlz Posts: 5Registered Users
Hello curly world!

I have normal hair and I have my good days and bad days. My hair will sometimes fall flat at the top and I hate that! I want to know is there a way to make my hair naturally thicker with more volume without adding product? Are there certain food and vitamins I should take? Has anyone actually done this and been successful? Please help me!!!! (>_<)

    I know Biotin is used to strengthen your hair and nails, but make it thicker or add volume? I don't think so. I've been taking Biotin for a few months now and the only thing I've noticed that it does is prevent my nails from breaking so often and down sizing the amount of hair left in my wide-tooth comb after a shower. But don't quote me on any of this, just my personal experience

    As far as making your hair thicker, I'm pretty sure there is not a pill or supplement around for that, however, I also take biotin and have found that it helps promote healthier stronger strands. One thing about it is that if you have oily or acne prone skin like I do, you might want to take the every other day because myself and others have found taking it too frequently promotes acne.

    Yes I am very prone to acne! I'm actually struggling with acne right now! But I guess I should give biotin a try and do as you say! Thank you for the feedback!
