Thinning hair is a common problem and it happens to both men and women. While it doesn’t have to lead to baldness, it is a troublesome condition that can affect one’s confidence. The good news is it doesn’t happen overnight, which means you have time to do something about it and here are some natural at-home treatments to help you with thinning hair.
Castor Oil – Easy And Effective
Castor oil is one of the oldest hair remedies known for its effectiveness. Thanks to its antibacterial properties castor oil boosts the health of your follicles, moisturizes the scalp and supports hair growth. It’s really easy to use and doesn’t call for any preparation. You just rub the oil across your scalp, massaging it with your fingertips and then put some more of it to the rest of your hair. Put a towel or a shower cap over your hair and leave it for half an hour. Wash your hair as you usually do. Do this twice a week.
Eggs And Olive Oil – Thinning Hair Treatment Right From Your Kitchen
Eggs are a great source of protein, omega-3s and biotin, which are all important for healthy hair growth. Olive oil helps the hair stay hydrated and is filled with antioxidants. Mix 1 whole egg with 1 tablespoon olive oil (extra virgin). Stir until the mixture becomes smooth. Rub it to your scalp and distribute to the rest of your hair. Put a towel or a shower cap over your hair and leave it for half an hour. Wash your hair as you usually do, but make sure you don’t use hot water. Use this treatment two times a week.
Greek Yogurt And Honey For Thick Hair
Greek Yogurt (full fat) is rich in protein and the lactic acid promotes healthy hair follicles, which is essential for hair growth. Honey strengthens the hair and is a great moisturizer. Mix two tablespoons of Greek yogurt and one tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture from the scalp to the ends, massaging your head. Cover your hair with a shower cap and leave the mask for half an hour. Wash your hair as you normally do. Use this mask once a week.
