We’ve heard of so many natural remedies for thicker hair growth. Perhaps you’ve already tried several potions and treatments but haven’t really given you the results that you expected. But don’t despair! We've listed below the most helpful treatments in terms of growing hair faster and healthier. Their active components and natural ingredients have been proven by nature and Medical Science to help improve scalp and follicle health.
If you want strong strands that can stand the test of heat and time, you need to make sure that you get enough of protein in your diet. You basically need protein to make hair. Be sure to get protein from the right sources.
Stay away from junk such as fast food burgers. Take your own turkey sandwich to lunch instead. Or maybe a quick protein smoothie on the go. Do this regularly and your body can produce enough levels of keratin proteins for your hair. You can also take a good protein supplement just to make sure that you have enough for keratin production.
Keratins are flexible yet durable fibers that give strength to your hair. Without sufficient supply of protein in your body, your body will start rationing protein and stop growing hair for a period of about three months.
It is very easy to make your own protein hair mask at home. Usually protein or DIY keratin hair masks contain eggs, avocados, or yogurt. This keratin hair repair recipe is an example of a good protein treatment to try.
Scalp Moisturizing Treatment
Growing thick hair involves maintaining a scalp that is well moisturized and free from inflammation. Otherwise, your follicles and hair roots will get clogged up and won’t grow hair anymore. It is essential that your scalp stays hydrated if you want shiny and thick tresses.
To maintain natural hair and scalp moisture, avoid overwashing your hair. It’s good to skip shampoo at least twice in a week. Unless you use a natural, non-drying hair shampoo, shampooing daily can really strip your strands of moisture and shine. To combat this, it is good to implement a deep moisturizing treatment at least twice or thrice a week; depending on how damaged or thin your hair is.
A very simple way to moisturize your scalp and prevent scalp conditions is by using herbal oils such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, vitamin E oil, or argan oil. Massage your scalp for about ten minutes using at least two tablespoons of any hair growth oil before shampooing your hair. Leave it on for about twenty minutes before finally rinsing it off.
Damage protection treatment
If you can’t avoid styling with the use of heat or styling irons, it is best to protect your hair using argan oil or any other herbal oils that can offer protection from heat-styling and sunlight. Argan oil from Morocco for example is an ideal leave-in hair conditioner and treatment because it is non-greasy. It can help fight frizz and prevent split ends. Plus it can protect your hair from hair iron, curlers, and blow dryer.
This oil is also rich in tocopherol or vitamin E, which is also a natural protectant. Because argan contains high levels of antioxidants as well as essential fatty acids, it offers so many healthy benefits to both scalp and hair, helping you grow not only thick but beautiful hair.
By following these natural treatments regularly, you’ll surely see a big difference in your hair growth rate and hair texture. You won’t regret it.
