Top tips on how to stimulate and encourage hair growth

A lot of our clients at our hairdressers in Wolverhampton want thicker, fuller hair and ask for our advice on how to encourage hair growth.

In this article we will give you expert advice from the professionals on how to stimulate your hair growth if it is thinning or reducing in fullness.


  • Choose a healthy diet:

Hair is made up of a tough protein called Keratin, so choose food that is rich in protein to stimulate your natural hair growth, and Omega 3,6 and 9 (Oily fish like Salmon and Mackerel) are great for optimum hair health.

  • Massage your scalp:

A deep massage of your scalp will encourage hair growth as it reaches deep into the follicle and encourages the blood flow to the roots of the hair.

  • Have regular trims:

Even though you are growing your hair, it is wise to have it cut regularly to stop split ends and to produce thicker and fuller looking hair….

  • Treat your hair to a deep conditioning mask:

If you do this on a regular basis it will strengthen your hair and prevent breakage. The Biolage R.A.W. Re-Hab Mask which is infused with honeycomb and kaolin clay will deeply condition even the most stressed hair and encourage thick, full shiny hair.

  • Over process the hair:

Too many chemical processes i.e.: colour or over bleaching can cause damage to your hair and prevent hair growth.

  • Expose your hair to the damaging effects of the sun:

Excessive exposure to the sun can cause weak, dry and brittle hair, so using a protective oil or sun screen can reduce these effects. Also, wearing a hat can give the hair and scalp protection from the strong UV rays

  • Leave out the hair protector:

If you are using heated styling tools these can cause damage and breakage to the hair shaft, so a heat protector in the form of a spray (Like the ghd one) or a cream or a serum, is essential before blow drying or using a heated styling tool Choose one that guarantees to protect up to 240 degrees and keep your hair strong and thicker looking

  • Expect miracles:

Looking after your hair is a long process and if you follow these tips then you will help to stimulate your hair growth and encourage thicker, fuller hair
