WILL HYALURONIC ACID THICKEN MY HAIR? 

Hyaluronic acid is loved for its ability to plump up skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. But can it also thicken hair? One expert thinks so.

‘It helps to support healthy growth,’ says award-winning stylist Michael Gray. ‘When our body ages, we tend to not produce enough hyaluronic acid, causing a decline in the quality and quantity of our hair.

‘ In products it helps to maintain the scalp’s moisture to prevent dryness and premature hair loss . . . it thickens strands and increases volume.’

, Daily Echoed

Contains rice protein and hyaluronic acid to improve volume and re-energise the scalp. Use on towel-dried hair.
