Secrets to Increase Hair Density

Sep. 16
When it comes to achieving healthy, shiny hair, there are plenty of different metrics you can look at to judge the health of your hair, such as its texture, the number of strands you have, and how processed it is. Another lesser-used metric to determine the health of your hair is by testing your hair density.
If you have ever been told that you have thick hair, the person may have been complimenting your hair density, which is the number of individual hair strands per square inch on your scalp. The average person has around 2,200 strands of hair per square inch on their head, and they shed between 50 and 100 hairs per day.
There are several different ways to test your hair density, but the most common methods are to count them, check for your scalp, or measure your ponytail.
  • Counting your strands. The most time-consuming method would be to count your hair strands, and, yes, it is entirely possible to count a square inch of your hair and see how many strands you have in that inch. 
  • Checking for your scalp. Another method is to let your hair fall naturally and check to see how easily you can see your scalp. If you can see your scalp easily, then your hair is low density. If you can see your scalp with close to no effort, then you have medium density hair, and if you can’t see your scalp at all, then your hair has a high density. 
  • Measuring your ponytail. The last and easiest method to check your hair density is by measuring the circumference of your ponytail. If you have low density hair, then the circumference will be less than two inches. Medium density will be two to three inches, and high density will be at least four inches.
  • If you are looking for ways to increase the density of your hair, then these six tips can help you. 
    6 Natural Ways to Increase Hair Density
  • Aloe vera gel. Adding aloe vera gel to your hair care routine is an easy way to moisturize your hair and improve your hair density.  Aloe vera gel has nutrients that strengthen your hair follicles, and it can also make your hair look healthy and shiny, as well. The process of using aloe vera gel is simple. Massage aloe vera gel on to your scalp, leave it for an hour, and then wash it out with water.
  • Scalp massages with oil. Scalp massages are imperative to maintaining a healthy hair density because the act of the massage boosts blood circulation and prevents losing more hair. This process strengthens your hair roots and increases the amount of hair you have over time. 
  • Make sure you’re getting your vitamins, especially vitamin C. All of your vitamins are important to having healthy hair, but vitamin C is especially important. Vitamin C can help strengthen your hair follicles, and it can promote voluminous, thick hair.  Adding vitamin C into your diet is easy, and it can be done by adding citrus fruits into your daily routine.
  • Wash your hair the RIGHT way. You can’t increase your hair density without taking care of the hair you already have, and most people are washing their hair entirely too often. Washing your hair every single day is too much. Instead, wash your hair two to three times a week and be selective about the shampoo you choose. It’s also necessary to condition your hair after you shampoo. However, only apply your conditioner to your hair, not your scalp.
  • Trim every month and a half. Split ends can be the death of density to your hair, and to prevent split ends from spreading through your entire hair strand, you need to make sure you get your hair trimmed regularly. Getting rid of the damaged parts of your hair will not only make your hair feel thicker, but it will also speed up the growth.
  • Learn how to manage your stress. Finally, no amount of healthy hair habits will matter if you don’t take care of your mental health at the same time. Chronic stress can cause hair thinning, so you must take care of your mental health alongside your physical health. Learn breathing techniques and meditation techniques to make sure that you manage your stress properly so you can have the high-density, thick hair you want.
  • If your goal is to have thick and shiny hair, then you’re going to have to pay attention to your hair density. Your hair density is the number of hair follicles you have in one square inch of your hair, and the average density is 2,200 follicles. There are several ways to test your hair density, but the easiest way is by measuring the circumference of your ponytail, and if you’ve found that you have a low hair density, then these six tips can help you increase the health of your hair.

    Why pH of skincare products is important?
    Why pH of skincare products is important?
    The pH is defined as the negative logarithm (base ten) of the concentration of free hydrogen ions in aqueous solution. The pH of skin surface ranges from 4.5 to 6 making it slightly acidic. The acidic nature of the whole skin surface was first claimed by Heuss in 1892; however, the first scientific study was carried out by Schade and Marchionini in 1928, who called it the acid mantle. The “acid mantle” protects the skin by inhibiting the growth of pathogenic organisms, regulating keratinization, desquamation and wound healing. Any disruption in the acid mantle disrupts the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection. The skin pH and the buffering capacity of the skin surface are made up of the components of the stratum corneum as well as the secretions from sebaceous and sweat glands. Sweat is an important contributor towards skin acidity owing to its content of amino acid, lactic acid, and urea, which supplement skin NMF levels. The formation of stratum corneum barrier requires enzymes that are pH dependent. Two lipid-processing enzymes β-glucocerebrosidase and acidic sphingomyelinase require a pH of 5.6 and 4.5, respectively. An increased skin surface pH activates enzyme serine proteases, which causes degradation of corneodesmosomes and affects the skin barrier. pH also has a big impact on the skin microbiome. The bactericidal activity, because of dermicidin and nitrites in sweat, occurs optimally at pH 5.5. The resident bacterial flora changes as pH increases causing increase in population and activity of P. acnes and Staphylococcus aureus which are responsible for acne and eczema. All these result in contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris and Candida albicans infections. Products with high pH cause swelling of skin follicles affecting the permeability of the skin making it dry, sensitive, and susceptible. Most of the skincare products are formulated within the pH range of normal healthy skin except the exfoliating products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA’s), Vitamin C products and chemical peel which work at low pH. Facial oils, cleansing oils, balms are not pH dependent.

    GRWM! New products and some old!
    GRWM! New products and some old!
    Hello everyone! I did another GRWM using some new and old products! First I started off with a primer. I used e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer I was actually really surprised by this. It reminded me of Tachas silk canvas primer. It went on smoothly and did a good job of blurring my skin. I will say though after I looked at my makeup in the mirror up close it did settle a bit into my pores and my creases and was pretty noticeable. Overall I think this is a good product and will work for people with smoother skin. e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer Then I used the elf concealer. I love this concealer. I’ve used it so many other times in my other videos. WINKY LUX - Diamond Powder Foundation Then I used the winky lux foundation. This actually went on so nicely and was super natural looking. I love how it’s so weightless and decreases shine. I would recommend this for people with oilier skin. the CRÈME shop - "Macro Brow" Angled Brow Pencil + Spooley Then i used macro brow. This is just to fill in the last bits of my eyebrow to look fuller. It’s easy to use and has a great price point. I just wish the pigment was a little easier to apply. You have to push so hard. RITUEL DE FILLE - Rare Light Crème Luminizer My favorite brand of highlighters ever. Just so pretty and pigmented. All natural and cruelty free. An amazing brand overall. 💞 fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I used a tinted fresh lip treatment. Love the way they hydrate and the subtle color it gives off. They also smell and taste really good 😂. Hope you enjoyed getting ready with me! Let me know if you have any questions about the products I used.
    Skincare Products ( that i have been LOVING )
    Skincare Products ( that i have been LOVING )
    Recently, I have been super into skincare and keeping up with my skin’s appearance as I am growing myself in the beauty industry ( meaning that I am now CONSTANTLY doing makeup on myself! ) Fluff and Starface both sent me these products to try out, and I have been LOVING them so far! I have combination skin, and this routine is PERFECT for me! My new three favorite skincare products that I have been enjoying as of lately are 1) FLUFF - Face Oil #1 , which is 100% jojoba oil, which I used as an all natural makeup remover! Jojoba oil is super moisturizing and amazing for literally all skin types- especially acne prone and sensitive skin! 2) FLUFF cleanser , which is again - all natural - containing jojoba oil, hemp seed oil (which moisturizes without clogging pores, and balances out oily skin), ashwagandha root (which stimulates production of natural skin oils), and aloe vera (which reduces blemishes and acne, as well as lightens blemishes on the face). This cleanser does a great job of removing makeup as well as leaving you skin moisturized and soft! 3) STARFACE Moisture on Mars Hydrating Face Cream! A little bit of this product really goes a long way, leaving your face super soft, hydrated, and all with a SERIOUS glow!!! I highly recommend checking these 3 products all out! They all work great separately, but in my opinion as I have been using them cohesively, my skin has been looking and feeling great ( besides that one pimple 🙄 ). xx Isabelle
