    Aw, shucks.

    Getting married was fun, but it wasn't very recent. We're going on 12 years now. Besides, being married is better than getting married.

    Hahaha!! Oh I goofed. You posted this link to a woman getting married in a week and I posted in the wrong thread but that doesn't take away from your awesomeness
    And I agree that being married is better than getting married.

    Like, to grow more hairs on your head? There's nothing tried and true. Obviously, you're limited to the follicles you have, but there are treatments that seem to increase thickness for some people. Oils with stimulating essential oils mixed in (peppermint, cayenne, all kinds of things that increase circulation), massages, caffein, and even applying Monistat to the scalp have anecdotally made a difference for some people. Taking pills including biotin appears to increase volume for some people too, but as there have been reports of people developing kidney problems after taking the high-but-popular doses, and many people (including me) get acne from it, so consider the risks and benefits carefully.

    There are definitely treatments that can temporarily give hair more volume. Sometimes it's as simple as clarifying hair if it's got too much conditioning and buildup. Herbal treatments like henna and senna will increase volume for a while, but that seems to fade after a few weeks and the color that comes with it is a factor that needs to be considered. Protein treatments also increase volume, but can make sensitive hair tangly or snappy if overdone.
