(AscendHealthy.com) – Who doesn’t want beautiful, luxurious locks of hair? If your hair could use a little help in the thickening department, you’ll want to keep reading. You may just have all the ingredients for thicker, fuller hair right in your kitchen. Here are five ways to naturally thicken your hair.
The protein found in eggs can help create thicker and stronger hair. This is one of the essential nutrients needed for healthy hair. To make an egg hair mask, simply blend 1-2 eggs together. Then, apply them to the hair and scalp. Leave this hair mask on for about 30 minutes before washing the hair with a gentle shampoo and rinsing.
2. Coconut Oil
Coconut oil also contains important natural proteins that can help nourish the hair. To take advantage of this natural hair conditioner, simply massage heated oil into the scalp and hair. Leave this in the hair for about 30 minutes with a heated towel wrapped around the hair to retain the heat and moisture. Then, remove the towel and wash with a gentle shampoo and rinse. Repeat every few days or so.
3. Healthy Diet
Diets rich in essential fats, proteins and an array of vitamins are best for maintaining healthy hair. Beneficial foods for thicker, healthier hair include salmon, eggs, greek yogurt, nuts high in fatty acids and beans. These foods are all rich in proteins. A nutritionist can help you create the perfect blend for your hair that also fits your other dietary needs.
4. Avocado and Banana
Avocados are full of healthy fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, which is why they are so good for the hair. Like avocados, bananas are chock-full of potassium and magnesium, which may help seal hair pores and reduce breakage. But bananas also contain silica, a building block of collagen, which might help control frizz.
When mashed together, avocado and banana can create a nutrient-filled mask. Spread the mixture from the roots to the tips of the hair to cover thoroughly. Massage gently into the hair for 30 minutes and then rinse with a gentle shampoo. Do this once per week for the best results.
There are many hair products on the market containing this ingredient. It’s beneficial in maintaining hair growth and thickness in part because of the vitamins and collagen content contained in the gel of the plant. Simply use aloe gel as a hair mask. Massage into the scalp and hair, wrap with a towel to retain moisture and leave on for 30 minutes. Remove the towel, wash with a gentle shampoo and rinse. You may repeat this process every few days.
Maintaining a healthy, thick mane of hair might be simpler by adding one or more of these five natural methods to your grooming schedule. Use them one at a time or create a healthy regular regimen that includes a rotation of two or more. Your hair will thank you!
