We suggest that you first find out the reasons for thinning of hairs and then go for thinning hair treatment suitable for your hairs type. The following points should be kept in mind while preparing your hair care regime:
Find out the cause: if your hairs were healthy previously and you feel that their quality is deteriorating from past some time, may be its time that you look back and analyse where you have gone wrong while taking care of your hairs.

After we have known the root cause of the thinning of hairs, the next step that should be followed is thinning hair treatment, i.e. how to make hair thicker? For this, we can take the help of below steps:
Use of gentle hair care products: gentle hair care products are best hair care products that you can give to your hairs. Since your hairs are thinning and you must be struggling to find a solution for it. Here is an advice that you can follow without the fear of it going wrong. Replace your hair care products with the natural ones. Try for few weeks, the natural shampoos and conditioners and check if you can see the difference in your hair quality. You can agree that these may be slow in action, but natural products do work in keeping the hairs healthy and thick and also you feel that there are no side effects of using them like dryness in the hairs. Shampoos with alcohol and sulphates should be avoided as they lead to dryness in the hairs.
Use comb: as for thinning hair treatment, we prefer that you use comb instead of the hair brush. This is because brushing leads to pulling out of the hairs and especially when you brush the hairs when they are wet, they get further damaged. Thus, it is advisable that you always detangle your hairs when they are dried out naturally and that too by using a comb that has wide tooth. Always detangle the hairs with gentle hands and do not be harsh on your hairs.
Air dry: even though you are leading a fast life and may not have ample amount of time to let your hairs dry naturally, it is important that you spend some time on your hairs rather then drying them with blow dryer every time. When you step out of the shower, do not wrap your wet hairs in hard towel. Try to use cotton or other soft fabrics that can soak water easily from the hairs. Also, avoid wringing them with towel. Letting the hairs air dry naturally helps in promoting the growth of new hairs.
Scalp massage: nothing works best for the hairs like oil massage of the scalp. Scalp massage helps in stimulating the growth of the hairs by increasing the circulation near the follicles of hairs. Use your fingertips in circular motion to massage your scalp. A hot oil massage is very beneficial in damaged hair treatment.
Hair growth techniques: there are several techniques in the market that can help you in promoting the growth of the hairs and reducing the thinning of the hairs. Hair transplants are popular among the people in whom the thinning of hairs occurs in patches. In such cases, the hairs are transplanted in the areas where hairs are getting thin. Similarly, scalp surgery also helps in covering of bald patches in the scalp.
Changes in lifestyle: the last step that you should follow for thinning hair treatment is making changes in your lifestyle to lead a more stress free and healthy life
