For those of us who suffer from thin hair or fine strands, we are constantly on the look-out for products to thicken our hair permanently and quickly. We become suckers for voluminous shampoos, conditioners and hair sprays: spending countless products which don’t work.
Now, I’ve got our solution. Three in fact. They’re natural products that will stimulate thicker, faster hair growth.
Lawsomia Inermis, aka: Henna
Henna is a magical hair product for a lot of reasons. Henna:
Makes hair heavier and fuller.
Creates movement and bounce.
Defines curl patterns
Because of this, henna is a natural hair thickener that creates an overall health and shine you rarely find among name brand”hair thickeners”.
There is only one”real” henna, which is called lawsomia inermis, which can be called Red Henna. Anything else is bogus and a waste of money, excluding Cassia (neutral henna) and indigofera tinctoria (black/indigo henna). Cassia and Indigo aren’t considered accurate henna (by everyone’s standards), but have the capability to thicken, shine and condition hair. Red Henna, however, is the strongest.
Note: The more you use henna, the better it functions. Just keep in mind that it will dry out your hair, so always follow up with a deep conditioning treatment.
The Shea Butter Wash per
Comal County Wildlife Removal
I recently wrote a post named Thicker Hair with Organic Shea Butter Wash which is similar to an oil rinse, but with butter. You can apply raw shea butter with olive oil, or a mixture of shea butter and thickening oils. I use mine from Angies Heavenly Treats since the ingredients, combined with the shea butter, creates healthy and more voluminous hair.
The shea butter scrub entails just what the name says: a wash with shea butter rather than shampoo. After that, do not follow up with a conditioner.
My Results: After two weeks, my new growth was thicker and my hair was bouncier and fuller. With time, the hair will gradually improve.
Most people will see changes around two weeks, and quite noticeable changes within one-two months. I do the Shea butter wash once each week.
Castor Oil Rinse
Even though there’s no scientific evidence that castor oil thickens hair, many users swear by it. One user massaged castor oil to her balding edges every night for a month and watched as her edges grew in. The user then went on a hair care forum and known as castor oil the”miracle oil”.
Her testimonial and that of other users might not be scientific, but it’s evidence that castor oil thickens hair. From her experience, castor oil does have thickening products.
“Due to the castor oil in my products, it is helpful to coat and moisturize hair, giving it a shine,” Hood said.
So again, while there’s no scientific evidence, there is proof in the pudding. By coating your hair with warm castor oil a couple of times a week, and then let it saturate into your strands with a shower cap, then you will realize that your roots and the duration of your hair will thicken over time.
