Not eligible for a hair transplant? Here’s how you can still achieve that ‘full look’

POSTED: 09 March 2018

There are a number of factors that determine your eligibility for a FUE hair transplant. Your age, the degree of hair loss and thinning, and the causes of your hair loss are some of the factors that doctors will consider before deciding if you’re a good hair transplant candidate.

If you’re not eligible for a hair transplant at this time, it’s important not to be disheartened. There are a range of ways that you can make your hair look thicker whilst waiting for the green light for your FUE hair transplant procedure. Read on to discover our top tips on how to make your hair look fuller in no time.

 

How to make your hair look thicker and fuller

There are a few ‘cheat’ methods you can use to make your hair look thicker if you’re not currently eligible for a hair transplant. Below, are some of the main tools that people use to cover random patches of hair loss and reduce the appearance of thinning hair.

 

Spray-on hair

Spray-on hair or ‘hair in a can’ is a method that some men and women use to make their hairlines fuller or to cover bald spots. The spray or ‘can’ contains a hair-coloured spray or fine hair-like fibers. This is then sprayed onto the desired areas, reducing the appearance of bald spots and making hair look thicker instantly.

 

Go for a haircut

If your hair is looking limp and lackluster, it might be time to go for a haircut. Opting for a shorter length can get rid of thinning ends and make your hair look fuller in an instant, especially if you have naturally thin hair.

 

Hair mousse

Using hair mousse is a tried and tested way of giving your hair more volume and making it look thicker. Simply apply to wet hair, leave it to air dry and style as normal to give your locks a lift.

 

Avoid a defined parting

For those with thinning or fine hair, a defined parting can expose too much scalp and make your hair look even thinner. If you normally part your hair with a brush or comb, try sweeping your hair across with your hand instead. This will make your hair parting look less defined and your hair will cover most of your scalp.

 

FUE hair transplants - The permanent hair loss solution

Whilst using the methods above can make your hair look fuller in an instant, these methods are usually temporary and will not fix the underlying issues making your hair look thin.
