Whether you’re a woman or a man, it’s normal for your hair to thin as you get older. But in some cases, hair loss could be a symptom of an underlying condition or health issue. Our lifestyle, diet, stress levels, and product choices all affect hair growth – not to mention genetics which we have zero control over. If you are suffering from thinning hair and looking for a holistic way to fix the problem? Here are number of ways that are known to help you grow those luscious locks with our hair growth treatment ideas.
Practice proper nutrition
After you manage your stress levels, practicing a hair-loving diet is next. The thickness and health of your hair are greatly impacted by what you consume. Some holistic, natural foods for thicker hair include:
Seaweed – One study showed that seaweed quickens hair regrowth, maybe thanks to its rich source of Omega-3 fatty acids. So, sushi tonight?
Iron – Research suggests a link between hair loss and iron intake, so make sure your diet includes iron-boosters like red meats and dark, leafy greens.
Salmon – High in protein and fatty acids, salmon is a hair staple. Any form like raw, smoked, or grilled reaps the benefits so stock up.
Nuts – Another protein and healthy fat source, nuts are a quick snack for on-the-go hair health.
Taking biotin or nutritional supplements
If you struggle to grow hair, biotin is a natural supplement to aid in the process. Biotin, or a B-complex vitamin, helps fight hair loss, brittle nails, and even dry skin.
Foods rich in biotin include egg yolks, sweet potatoes, and legumes. Otherwise, make it easy with a daily hair growth supplement that boasts biotin and other hair-loving adaptogens.
Apply Aloe Vera Juice
One of the best things you can take is aloe vera juice. The benefits of aloe vera include its healing effects on skin and wounds. Within the aloe vera juice are polysaccharides that aid your body in healing cuts fast, including both internally or externally. In fact, in 2009, a systematic review summarized 40 studies involved using aloe vera for dermatological purposes.
But aloe vera juice is also great for thickening your hair, so you’ll see a lot of natural hair shampoos and conditioners today that have aloe vera in the ingredients. Aloe vera has tons of vitamins and minerals that are present keep your hair strong and healthy. Because of aloe vera’s antibacterial and antifungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.
Taking aloe vera juice internally for starters is one of the things I recommend, so drink about a half a cup, twice a day. Now you can buy aloe vera juice in small proportions, but I found, bang for your buck, getting a whole gallon of aloe vera juice is the better way to go. Beyond thickening your hair, it’ll also give you healthier skin and nails.
Now, in terms of one of the most immediate results when trying to figure out how to thicken hair, I suggest you start using rosemary oil. The uses of rosemary oil extend to helping stimulate hair growth, as when applied over the scalp. Many people also claim that it can prevent baldness, slows graying, and can be used to treat dandruff and dry scalp. While rosemary oil does need further study when considering hair growth, I’ve found it very promising.
Take several drops of rosemary oil and mix it with some benefit-rich olive oil. Massage that mixture into your scalp for just a couple minutes and leave it in there for anywhere from three to four hours.
Low Light Laser Hair Growth Treatment
LLLT (Low Light Laser Therapy) is a painless, non-invasive procedure that uses infra-red laser diodes to stimulate the hair follicles in areas of the body (usually the scalp) where more hair growth is desired. When you use laser treatment for hair loss, no drugs are necessary, and there are no side effects. It’s widely accepted that LLLT is safer and more tolerable than surgical hair replacement procedures.
Effectivity of the above mentions are case to case basis. Beautiful and shiny hair always leaves good impression, which is why proper hair care is important. Also, good care of your hair plays an important part in having healthy hair and helps avoid extensive damage that can lead to hair loss. Regular washing with celebrity advertised shampoos and conditioners is not enough.
