It is a popular myth that all kinky hair is strong, thick and coarse. This can be true, of course, but many ladies with kinky hair have thin, low density hair naturally. There are a few things that you can do to thicken your hair. You’ll have to make sure that it’s always well moisturized, as usual, and you can use henna, castor oil and rose water to help thicken your hair. If you feel that your hair is thinning due to damage, you should do deep conditioning treatments at least once a month. Biotin (as well as other vitamins), the herb saw palmetto and stress reduction can also make a big difference. There are also shampoos made specifically for thinning hair that you could try.
