How to Thicken Hair Naturally

Do you how to naturally thicken your hair? And also get healthier-looking skin and thicker, strong nails? This is something I actually get questions about pretty frequently, so I’m going to go over the best foods, the best personal care products, and the best supplements to take when it comes to having healthy skin, hair and nails — and specifically, we’re talking about how to thicken hair naturally and also hair loss remedies.

Natural Methods to Thicken Hair

1. 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 to 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.

2. Flaxseeds

If you want to know how to thicken hair, then you also need to consider what you’re eating. Along those lines, I also recommend that you introduce flaxseeds into your diet. Flaxseeds benefits including thickening your hair because of its lignans — a group of chemical compounds found in plants — and omega-3 fatty acids. These anti-inflammatory ingredients also aid in improving your skin.

I would try and put about three tablespoons a day of flax meal into a smoothie or with some goat’s milk yogurt and fruit for breakfast. 

3. Rosemary Oil

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 a 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.
