How to Thicken Thin Hair

Learn how to thicken thin hair from hair transplant surgeon Craig Ziering, MD in this Howcast video.


There's basically four different ways to thicken thin hair.

One - You can use a cover up device. One that's either a powder or a spray. You just put that on. It's a cosmetic device. It just makes the hair look fuller and ticker.

Number two - You can use medical therapy. Now medical therapy can take the form of a topical preparation such as Minoxidil or oral therapy with Propecia. Remembering that Propecia can only be used for men.

The third method is to use laser therapy. Laser therapy is often very effective for people that are not bald but thinning. It can thicken the existing hair, can make it look fuller and healthier.

Finally, for people that have thinning hair you can have a transplant where we actually move hair from the back of the head, where it's not programmed to be lost, to the thinning areas on the top or front of the scalp.

These are the methods for treating balding or thinning hair.
