10 Tips on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally
Long, thick hair is considered by many to be a sign of beauty and youth, but not everyone is lucky enough to have it. Thinning hair is quite a common problem and it can be brought on by many factors, including diet, pollution and rough handling of your hair. The good news though, is that you can take positive steps to improve the thickness of your hair and here are ten tips on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally:
1. Use natural hair products
Most commercial conditioners and shampoos, especially the cheaper brands, contain harsh chemicals and detergents, which can dry out and damage your hair. When shopping for hair products, always try and choose the ones that contain natural ingredients and are sulphate free.
2. Eat healthy food
Another tip on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally is to adjust your diet. Your diet also has an important part to play in the health of your hair. To help promote hair growth eat high protein foods and foods that contain zinc, vitamins B, C, D, and E. Increase your consumption of foods like seeds, nuts, vegetables and eat more protein rich food, such as poultry and dairy products.
3. Avoid using hot tools
The heat from blow dryers and flat irons can dry out your hair, and make it brittle, which will lead to more hair loss. So our next tip on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally is to avoid using tools that use heat or, turn the temperature setting down low.
4. Treat wet hair with care
When hair is wet it becomes fragile, so never dry your hair roughly with a towel; instead, pat it dry, or leave it dry naturally. Also be careful when brushing wet hair. Start with a wide toothed comb and don’t tug on tangles.
5. Don’t shampoo every day
Another good tip on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally is to avoid daily shampooing. Shampooing your hair every day will also make it brittle and more prone to breakage. Try washing your hair only every third or fourth day and that will allow more of your natural oils to moisturise your hair.
6. Try a flax seed rinse
Flax seeds are full of the essential fatty acids that your hair needs to grow full and thick. You can make your own flax water, by soaking flax seeds in a bowl of water for four days. Then, apply the water to your scalp and leave it on for about fifteen or twenty minutes, before rinsing out again.
7. Hot oil massage
Here is another great tip on how to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally: warm some natural oil like olive or coconut oil (but make sure it’s not too hot and comfortable to touch), and then massage it into your hair and scalp. The massaging will help to improve the blood supply to your follicles and the natural oil will moisturise and nourish your hair.
8. Fenugreek paste
Also called ‘methi’ seeds, fenugreek seeds are a good source of vitamins, iron and protein and they are a great ingredient for an all-natural, hair thickening treatment. Soak the seeds for about eight hours, and then grind into a paste. Apply the paste and leave it on your hair, for around twenty minutes before rinsing out with warm water.
Another popular treatment that can help make hair thicker and fuller naturally is avocado mask. Avocado is also a well-known, nourishing, hair treatment that can help promote the growth of thicker hair. You can make a simple avocado hair mask by mashing the flesh of one avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil. Massage the mixture into your scalp, and leave it on for about twenty minutes and then wash out and rinse with warm water.
How to make your hair thicker and fuller naturally? Use Eggs! One of the quickest ways to thicken your hair is to provide it with more protein. That means that one of the best treatments for hair is an egg. Yes, it’s not just a myth! Applying, one or two, beaten eggs to your hair and leaving it for around twenty minutes really will nourish and thicken your hair. Do this, twice a week and combine it with hot oil treatment, once a week, and you will start to see the difference.
Note: Avoid applying homemade treatments to your skin if you have sore scalp, or if you have any skin diseases or open wounds on your head. If you have serous hair thinning problems consult your doctor.
