Anything from stress, use of harsh hairstyling products to poor eating habits can make your mane thin. Your instinct might instruct you to come scrambling to the nearest drugstore to avail of a hair-thickening solution at the first sign of thinning. Before you do that and spend a lot of cash, you might want to try various all-natural solutions first.
The application of protein-packed eggs can help make your mane become stronger and thicker. Simply beat an egg or two and massage onto damp hair and scalp. Shampoo very well after 10 minutes.
2. Aloe Vera
So many hair products do not contain aloe vera for no reason at all. Consider yourself fortunate if you have easy access to the herb. Break off a leaf and massage the gel onto clean scalp. Rinse with lukewarm water after about 30 minutes.
Use a fork to mash half a slice of a medium-sized avocado and massage it on your scalp. Hit the shower after an hour to give avocado enough time to do its job. You may choose to add olive oil or mashed banana into this natural hair-thickener.
4. Orange Juice
Pouring freshly-squeezed orange juice on your head allows your scalp and hair to benefit from its loads of vitamin C and antioxidants. You may combine equal amounts of orange juice and olive oil, too, if you want a really potent thickener.
5. Olive Oil
Other than the heart, olive oil is also good for your thinning hair. An hour before you take a shower, simply massage olive oil onto your scalp and leave it there. Shampoo very well to remove the oil. If you find olive oil too fancy and expensive, use coconut oil instead.
Add three tablespoons of ground flaxseed to a bowl of water and allow it to stand for around 5 days. Use a cotton ball to apply the solution onto your scalp. Give those fatty acids in flaxseed 10 minutes to carry out their job, then rinse.
7. Fenugreek Seeds
Soak 2 to 3 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Mash them with fork the next day and apply the resulting paste on your tresses and scalp. Wash off the paste with lukewarm water after an hour.
Boiling 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of dried gooseberry makes for a good hair-thickener that you may leave on as you sleep. Apply the solution on your scalp before bedtime, put on a shower cap and shampoo the next day.
9. Henna Leaves
With a mortar and pestle, grind fresh henna leaves. Add a few drops of water to make a paste. Apply it on the hair, put on a shower cap, and rinse off with lukewarm water after a couple of hours. This will give you thicker and darker hair.
Experiment with different ones until you find one you are happy with. It won’t take long before you enjoy thicker mane once again.
