Thinning of hair is common is a common problem faced by most people at some point. This could be due to a lot of reasons like ageing, allergies, exposure to harsh chemicals, overuse of chemical-based hair products, poor nutrition and illness etc. Most times it is reversible, unless it is due to an underlying condition, and you can grow your hair thicker and stronger.
In this article, we list some natural measures and remedies which might help you grow thicker and stronger hair.
There are a few simple things you can try to help your hair grow thicker:
- Eat a healthy diet
Your hair is made up of protein, so be sure to include plenty of protein-rich foods. Eggs, fish, and beans, are rich in protein and must be an integral part of your diet. Also, make sure you get enough micronutrients like iron, zinc, and vitamins A and C, as these are vital for healthy hair growth.
2.Avoid using heat for styling
Blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons and other heating-based styling tools can damage your hair and make it more prone to breakage. If you do use heat styling tools, always use a heat protectant spray.
Remember that most heat-protectant sprays include chemicals which protect your hair, form a layer of protection and get absorbed by the roots. So it is not advisable to use them every day as they weaken your hair in the long run.
3.Avoid tight hairstyles
Tight ponytails, braids, and buns can put stress on your hair. Too much stress and strain on hair can break them.
You can use a soft hair tie instead to style your hair.
- Avoid using harsh hair products
Harsh chemicals, like sulphates, parabens and silicon are excellent preservatives and are often used in making shampoos and dyes. These can cause severe damage to your hair and make it more prone to breakage.
Choose products that are free from sulphates, parabens, and other harsh ingredients. All of Audora's hair oils are 100% Natural. The hair-fall control shampoo is mild and free from harsh chemicals.
5.Get rid of split ends
Split ends can make your hair look thin and lifeless. You can get rid of split ends by regular trimming. It prevents the split ends from travelling up the hair shaft and causing further damage.
6.Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp helps to stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles. This helps to promote healthy hair growth as the hair roots are well nourished.
To take it a bit further you can use a scalp exfoliator. Scalp exfoliators can help to remove build-up oils, dirt etc and promote healthy hair growth.
These are some natural ways that can help you grow thicker and stronger hair.
But if you feel your hair thinning is sudden, it is best to consult with a dermatologist or trichologist (a specialist in hair and scalp disorders). They can help you determine the cause of your thinning hair and recommend the treatment that suits you.
