However, with a few home remedies for thicker hair, you too can achieve salon-quality thickness with the help of common household and kitchen goods.

Thicker Hair

What Causes Hair to Thin

Maybe it’s because you’re getting older or perhaps you’re under a great deal of physical or emotional stress. Whatever the case might be, thinning hair can attack anyone. A family tree plagued by thinning hair also increased your chances of encountering less-than-thick tresses. Beyond patterns of male baldness and inherited conditions, other causes of thinning hair include[1]:

• Hormonal imbalances, especially in women
• Nutritional deficiencies
• Allergies
Stress

Thicker Hair Home Remedies

To achieve luscious, full locks in the comfort of your own home, consider the following home remedies for thicker hair that use familiar ingredients, such as olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and eggs:

a) Flax Seed:

Place flax seed in a container of water and leave for five days. Use a cotton ball to apply the solution directly to the scalp.

b) Olive Oil:

For three minutes, rub olive oil into the scalp. For the best results, it is recommended to leave the oil on overnight. In the morning, rinse away the remedy using a mild shampoo. The olive oil helps to clear away debris, remove excess sebum, and rid hair of unwanted dirt. All of the above can clog follicles, causing the thinning of hair to take place.

c) Onions:

Rub onions on your scalp to encourage the circulation of blood. With a fresh supply of blood to hair shafts, nourishment takes place – helping hair to grow thick and strong.

d) Aloe Vera:

Extract aloe vera gel from a couple of leaves. Mix the gel with an egg and glass of brandy. Apply the mixture to your scalp every two weeks.

e) Go Curly:

To make your hair appear thicker, embrace the ‘curly look.’ The shape and wave of your locks will give off a fuller form.

f) Apple Cider Vinegar:

After washing your hair, use apple cider vinegar diluted in hot water as a final rinse.

g) Combing Habits:

You can energize weakened roots by combing your hair from the back of the neck toward the front.

h) Lavender Oil:

If you have any lavender oil handy, use it to massage your scalp for thicker hair.

i) Protein:

Choose a shampoo that contains hydrolyzed animal proteins[2], which can thicken your hair and give it more body. A shampoo with protein causes hair to appear fluffier.

j) Daily Shampooing:

When hair gets oily, it tends to look stringy, flat and matted down. A daily wash creates more body and a thicker head of hair in the process.

k) Egg:

You can enjoy the same results as specialized formulas found on the market by putting the animal protein found in a simple egg to good use. Before shampooing, crack an egg over your hair and throw away the shell. For five minutes, massage in the egg and follow-up with a thorough rinse.

l) Vitamins:

Fill your plate with foods that contain minerals and vitamins associated with hair growth. An increase in biotin, vitamin B, and vitamin C will give an added boost to hair growth.

m) Neck Massages:

When the scalp receives a decent amount of blood flow, hair is encouraged to grow healthy and thick. Massaging the neck can send more blood to the scalp.
