I was reading Curly Nikki today and she talked about using Oat flour in her conditioner as a thickening agent for her fine strands. I must admit that was my first time ever hearing of Oat Flour being used in this manner so I decided to look it up. While researching I found a ton of thickening agents some of which can be found right in the kitchen!
Oat flour contains lipids that thicken brittle hair after one use. Oat flour can be found at any grocery or health food store and has a long shelf life.
Simply add 2 tbsp. of oat flour to your regular conditioner and use as often as you condition hair. You can also create oat flour water to saturate your hair before you use conditioner. Dissolve 1 tbsp. of oat flour in 1 cup of water.
Henna is good for the hair. One can make paste of henna and apply it on the hair. Let it remain for an hour or so and then rinse the hair. One can mix the henna with an egg and also put some drops of lime as it will give it a shine. This is one of the best home remedy for hair thickening.
Aloe vera shampoo is good for getting a thick hair.
Add gelatin to the shampoo. Shake the shampoo well so that the gelatin gets dissolved. For intensive treatment, the gelatin must be dissolved in a cupful of warm water. Let the shampoo dry and then wash it off.
Avocado as well banana pack is good for the hair. Bananas are full of potassium as well as Vitamin A. These nutrients regulate the moisture on the scalp. In case the scalp is not in proper shape, then it could cause hair to fall. Avocados also contain Vitamin A and plenty of protein, Vitamin E, as well as Vitamin B. One has to mash about 1/4th of banana as well as 1/4th of avocado till it happens to be smooth and creamy spread. Then apply this paste on the scalp as well as the entire length of oneâ€™s hair. Let it be for 20 minutes, then rinse it off. Next, shampoo the hair as you usually do. The hair will look lustrous and prevent hair falling.
Beer also has a lot of protein as well as sugar and it gives a quick lift to the hair. One can pour even stale beer on the hair. Then rinse it off by shampooing. One need not worry about the smell of beer as it will go away after application.
Rinsing hair with a mixture of apple cider vinegar as well as sage tea helps to prevent thinning of hair.
One can take Ginkgo Biloba for better blood circulation as it will help prevent hair fall
One can take the herb Saw Palmetto as it helps in unblocking hair follicles.
One can use nettles to promote hair growth and prevent balding of the scalp.
Margosa as part of Ayurvedic treatment helps in hair growth.
One can make use of a Chinese herb known as Fo-ti as it stops falling of hair and restores hair color.
I would research each item before using any of the suggested products, allergies are no joke!
Which would you try?
