How do i get thicker healthier hair

The thinning of the hair is generally caused by inadequate hair care and the lack of a healthy balanced diet. It can also be caused by the overexposure to direct sunlight or harsh winds. However, in some cases, like with menopause or andropause, hair thinning is a natural process and will require medical treatment.

There are several natural homemade remedies for thinning hair that you can include in your daily hair care regimen. Fenugreek seeds are rich in several bioactive constituents including alkaloids that help to thicken the hair fiber. They also contain oils and mucilage which help to retain moisture. Soak a handful of fenugreek seeds in a bowl of water overnight. The next morning blend the seeds until you have a thin paste. Apply the paste to your hair and scalp and leave it on for at least 30 minutes before you wash your hair. If it is possible, soak the seeds during the day and apply the paste to your hair for the night. Wash it off the next morning with warm water. This is a very effective treatment and you can include it in your existing hair care routine. If you wash your hair on a daily basis, you can apply it every night before you sleep. Make sure that you wrap your hair securely in a shower cap and clean cloth to prevent the paste from staining your sheets.

Homemade shampoos for thinning hair are preferable as they do not contain the preservative chemicals and dyes that are included in cosmetic shampoos. Acacia concinna and soap nuts can be boiled in order to get a natural base for your shampoo. If fresh Indian gooseberry is available, blend one or two of these fruits and mix the juice with your shampoo base. If it is only available in its powdered form, steep a tablespoon of the powder in a glass of water and strain it out once it cools. Add this liquid to your shampoo base and use it instead of your normal cosmetic shampoo. Indian gooseberry is very rich in Vitamin C and helps to increase hair volume.

In addition to this, it is very important to protect your hair from the elements. Use a cap, hat or a scarf whenever you go outdoors. Your diet should include foods like egg yolk, milk, nuts, brewers yeast, soy flour, raw oysters and raw beef liver as they are high in biotin. This Vitamin B is necessary for thick and healthy hair. To make your hair appear fuller, get a layered hair cut as this will prevent your hair from looking limp and lifeless.
