Natural remedies for thicker luscious locks

Indian Gooseberry



The anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and exfoliating properties present in Indian gooseberries are an excellent way to maintain a healthy scalp and encourage better hair growth rate.

How to: Mix one tablespoon of Indian gooseberry or amla powder (this is the dried powdered gooseberry) with two tablespoons of coconut oil and heat until boiling. Strain the oil and massage it onto your scalp before going to bed. The next morning, shampoo your hair as usual. Do this on a weekly basis. Another option is to mix one-quarter cup of warm water in one-half cup of Indian gooseberry powder and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Apply the paste on your hair and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do not shampoo your hair for a few hours.

Honey and Yogurt



Honey contains a multitude of vitamins and minerals. It also acts as humectant which attracts moisture and keeps your hair hydrated to avoid breakage and dryness.

How to: Mix 2 tablespoons of honey, one of olive oil and one tablespoon of yoghurt to make your nourishing hair tonic. Massage your scalp with this for about 5 minutes. Leave for half an hour. Wash off with your regular shampoo or some herbal shampoo. Repeat once every week.

Orange Juice



The tangy fruit most famous for its Vitamin C, is also an amazing way to accelerate hair growth and also helps in treating dandruff. A mixture of orange juice and apple puree is also a good way to get thicker hair naturally.

How to: Take a sliced orange, peel and all, and put it in a food processor until you have a fine pulp. This pulp should be applied to your hair and left on for twenty minutes. Doing so once a week will lead to fuller, thicker hair in a matter of months. It should be rinsed well. No additional shampoo is necessary if it is not desired.

Olive Oil



Olive oil is full of nutrients that your hair needs to look and feel healthy and vibrant. Olive oil is an age old remedy to promote hair growth as it contains omega-3 fatty-acids that your hair needs to become thicker.

How to: Simply apply olive oil to your hair and massage it in, being sure to get all of your hair. Leave this in for thirty minutes and then rinse followed by a light shampoo. For even better results, you can leave it on overnight and then wash it in the morning.

Egg



Eggs aren't just for eating! They are a brilliant source of nutrients to promote new hair growth and make it thick. Protein is one of the most effective things you can give your hair to make it stronger, thicker, and looking its best.

How to:
Beat two large eggs in a bowl until they are whisked well together. Apply this all over your dry hair and let sit for at least twenty minutes. Proceed to rinse this well, applying a light shampoo to get the smell of the egg out of your hair. This method should be used at least four times a week to gain the best results. You can also use a mixture of egg yolk, olive oil, and water to gather results of thicker hair. The three should be mixed well and applied all over dry hair. Leave this on for fifteen minutes and then rinse well followed by a light shampoo. Repeating this procedure a few times a week will offer results in a few weeks.

Coconut Cream



Coconut cream is a highly effective hair thickening treatment as it contains proteins that are responsible for adding strength to the hair and treating thin hair.

How to: Massage a bit of warmed coconut cream into the scalp and hair and cover with a hot towel. Get the towel hot by running it under hot water and ringing out all excess water. This will ensure that the cream stays heated while penetrating the hair shaft. Leave this on for thirty minutes and then rinse and wash with a mild shampoo. This can be repeated every few days to get hair that is both thicker and healthier.

Avocado Paste



This green, creamy fruit is great for promoting naturally thicker hair and will leave your locks shiny and luxurious.

How to: Mash the avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil and applied to the hair as a mask. This should be applied to freshly washed, damp hair and left on for at least twenty minutes. Rinse off and follow with a conditioner and you will soon notice a big improvement of the thickness of your hair.
