Thicker hair is on everyone's must-have list, but it's not always easy to obtain. Our lifestyle, diet, stress levels, and product choices all affect hair growth - not to mention genetics which we have zero control over. So how can you get thicker hair, the holistic way?
There is no way to change the texture of hair follicles, but there are quite a few natural ingredients that help to make hair look thicker. These holistic remedies can also reduce breakage and improve overall hair health. It's a win-win!
We're diving into effective, natural ways to help thicken your hair and improve your hair's condition. Meanwhile, we'll introduce one of our best-selling products, Root 66 Abundance Serum, because we formulated it just for natural volume and hair loss.
Longer, more voluminous hair starts at the root so let's get to the bottom of it.
Reduce stress with adaptogens or CBD
Stress is a common denominator of many health ailments, but you can point your fingers at it for thinning hair too. Increased cortisol, our body's internal trigger to stress, leads to increased hair shedding.
In short, for a thicker head of hair, you need to reduce and manage stress. How? If yoga or meditation just isn't cutting it, certain adaptogens like ashwagandha have many health benefits like calming effects. Or, CBD works miracles to promote biological harmony.
Sleep is another way to reduce stress since a quality night of rest sets us up for a better day. We all know sleep is good for us, but how important is sleep to beauty? Vital. Sleep is when our bodies perform most of their cellular and DNA repair - including helping hair follicles.
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 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.
Get fuller hair with a holistic serum
Now that we covered what's going on below the surface, it's time to address what's on top. For natural volume and thicker strands, a hair serum can help.
