How do you thicken up very thin blonde hair that is like a birds nest a minute after your brush it?

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

Ruby's hair is so thin and scraggley looking. It turns into a birds nest within moments of brushing it. You can't plat it or put it in a ponytail because there's just not much there. She's been growing it for 3 years and it's barely passed her shoulders and the little bits that have are so thin they are almost invisible. Any ideas on how to thicken it up or at least stop the birds nest?

Hi all, think it's sad that you are complaining about your daughter's hair. Not here to preach, just feel sorry for the mom said("pathetic".) when talking about her own child!
Wow...really...wow,hope instead you feel blessed that your child is healthy and not obsess about her hair! I know many people who think blond fine hair is beautiful,everyone has their own opinion of course but please for your daughter's sake try to keep yours to yourself and show her more support. Thanks:)

When I was little I had the really thin blonde hair so my mom tried the Aussie 3 minute miracle. (Not sure how often she used it on me but it worked on my hair. It's worth a try! I use it on my daughters hair every so often, her hair wasn't as bad as mine but she has the thin blonde hair also and it's helped a little! It would help more if I used it more often. I have seen it sold at dollar general. Hope this helps!!!!

As a hairdresser i recommend cutting the hair... Every hair has a life cycle and babys hair needs to be given the opportunity to grow well and healthy... It takes a little while for babys hair to grown in properly.. my daughter is 3 and she still has hair coming through. If you keep it shorter it will stop it looking as whispy.. using a detangler is a great way of getting the knots out and helping the overall condition of the hair that has grown out and help the stuff coming through.. and above all patience.

I also have a daughter with blonde (white blonde) pathetic, barely there hair. She is now 5 years old and has never had a hair cut - it is only just past her shoulders so I can tie it up etc but there are loads of scraggley bits that don't tie up or clip down as they haven't even grown past her ears yet. I haven't tried anything but just sit back hoping that one day it will thicken up and become all one length. Sorry I couldn't have been more helpful but I do sympathise.

you can try Aussie's hair insurance. It's a detangler and leave-in conditioner I use on my son's hair (all my kids use it, even my teenagers!). After her hair dries with the Aussie in it, run your fingers over and thru it and the hair softens up and smells really nice! Good luck!

my friend does hair and always says the best thing for healthy hair is to brush it lots...I used coconut oil in my baby's hair to slick it...
