How to Naturally Thicken Your Hair

My head is big. I’ve dealt with that fact my entire life and struggled with finding the right hats to add style without drawing attention to the circumference. Although my head is pretty voluptuous my hair is pretty thin. Keeping my hair natural has allowed me to keep up the appearance of thick hair but I’ve always envied those with hair to spare.

I did everything to get that full mane including adding an egg to my shampoo and over-saturating my hair with conditioners all to end up in vain. Now, since my hair is locked, I’ve been able to focus on how to pair my normal hair care routine with natural treatments to keep my locks healthy, breakage-free and nurtured.


Here are a few quick ways to keep your hair strong and naturally thicken your hair:

Hair Vitamins – I’ve been on my Viviscal kick for the past few  months which has helped to add incredible moisture to my hair. My edges have been regrowing slowly as well but I’m also wearing my hair down more these days to prevent further breakage.


Natural Oils- Get your aromatherapy on by massaging your scalp regularly with natural oils you can easily apply to your scalp and hair. Oils like lavender, rosemary,  jojoba, and grapeseed are natural solutions to help thicken your hair as you circulate your blood flow and encourage hair growth.


Eggs – Adding an egg to my shampoo wasn’t enough. Try mixing up a quick hair mask by applying the egg onto your hair, massage in and leave it on for no longer than five minutes. Do this egg mask treatment weekly to add protein to your hair and strengthen your strands.


Stay away – Shampoos that contain sulfates like sodium laureth sulfate can strip your hair of it’s natural oils. Sulfates are detergents, terrible for color, and give your shampoo that lather at the expense of your precious locks. Carol’s Daughter Monoi collection is what I’ve been using the past few months that contain coconut oil and help to reduce breakage and strengthen hair. Paraben and Sulfate free my locks have never felt softer and more healthy.

    The way I usually help thicken my hair is to make hair masks. The one I found the best had half a banana, an egg, a teaspoon of honey, and two teaspoons of olive oil all mixed together. Also I eat a capsule of omega 3 fish oil every day with a meal, which helps alot to make hair thick and shiny. Also I never do anything to my hair after washing, because I found that hair products damage and thin my hair. I only use products if they are completely natural. I dry my hair naturally without a blow dryer, and when my hair is damp and almost dry I massage almond or coconut oil into my hair to add volume without the blow dryer. Also, when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed I massage my scalp with my fingertips with round movements, to boost circulation, helping to promote hair growth. I hope this helps!
