How To Grow Thick, Strong Hair & Prevent Hair Loss


It is completely normal to lose hair on a daily basis because your hair is continually growing BUT when you start noticing your hair is falling a lot more than it normally does, it can be extremely distressing. There are many contributing factors to hair loss: stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, climate, incorrect use of hair products or hereditary factors. 

Instead of spending money on overpriced treatments that don't seem to do the job, here are a few tips and home remedies you can try yourself to stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss. 

COCONUT OIL
I'm pretty sure you've heard of how beneficial coconut oil is for stimulating hair growth. It's important to use unrefined coconut oil virgin coconut oil to ensure the protein in the oil gets absorbed by your hair. 
Directions:
1) Heat up the oil and with your fingers (once cooled, of course), gently massage the oil into your scalp in  circular motion. Massaging improves the blood circulation and allows for the hair follicles to absorb the oil easily, thus stimulating growth.
2) Put your hair up with a hair clip/ hair tie and wrap your hair with a cling wrap or towel 
3) Leave it in for half an hour and then wash your hair. If possible, leaving the oil in overnight would be even better!
*1-3 times a week*

OLIVE OIL 
Just like coconut oil, regular use of olive oil will also aid in stimulating hair growth and prevent hair loss as it contains Omega-3 fatty acids. 
Directions:
Same directions as above!
*1-3 times a week*

EGGS
Eggs are highly beneficial for your hair as they're packed with protein (promotes hair growth and keeps your hair strong and thick)
Directions:
1) Crack 2 medium sized eggs into a bowl and beat well. 
2) Apply the egg mixture onto hair 
3) Leave mixture for 15 mins before washing off  *3-4 times a week*



HEALTHY EATING
Often times, people suffer from hair loss/ thinning because of a poor diet (guilty!) It's important to ensure you eat foods packed with protein, zinc and iron, as well as vitamins such as Vit A,B,C & E. 
Vit E, in particular, stimulates the growth of capillaries, which enhances blood circulation in the scalp - resulting in thicker hair. 
*Foods containing Vit E include: kale, spinach, almonds, kiwi and papaya. 

REDUCE DIRECT HEAT ONTO THE HAIR
Again, guilty! Using heating tools such as curling irons, straighteners and even blow dryers can damage the hair, which will result in it breaking off. So, even if you may not be losing hair from the roots, hair breakage will result in the appearance of thinner hair.  
If you are anything like me and love your heating tools, I won't be hypocritical and tell you to stop. What I suggest is to minimise the use of these tools, especially when your hair is wet as it's more prone to damage. Instead of blow-drying your hair straight out of the shower and then directly straightening/ curling it, try to let it your hair air- dry first. 
Apply a good heat protectant (I love TreSEMMÉ) before using your styling tools (including the blow dryer). Obviously, if you can cut down on heating tools entirely, that'll be much better.


STRESS LESS, BE HAPPY 
I know it's easier said that done, but leading a happy and stress-free lifestyle can help tremendously with hair loss. If you feel unhappiness or stress are the reason behind your hair loss, then know it is not permanent. Hair grows and once you discover the source of your stresses and address the problem, your hair should be back to normal. The hair cycle takes a few months so don't be disheartened if you don't see immediate changes :)


Goodluck my beauties!

  1. I had heard of eggs and coconut oil and use both (not as regularly as I should but I still do). However, I have grown to love Lush's 'Roots' hair treatment. I usually apply it on a Saturday night and wash it off on Sunday morning. It leaves my hair smelling and feeling great. It smells all minty and even whilst drying, my hair still smells of mint. I don't usually like minty smells but this smells beautiful! Definitely give it a go. You could also leave it in for just half an hour but I think if I'm spending so much on a hair mask, I might as well use it fully, ygm? I'm on my second pot now. The previous one I got about 10 uses out of which is really good, I think.

  2. Oooh, I've been meaning to try Lush products, so I'll definitely consider it. Although, I'm not the biggest fan of mint, so I'll see the other options they have. Thanks for the suggestion beautiful

  3. Even though there is little clinical research on the effects of herbs on hair loss, many people see from experience that toppik do work. The need for on-going research for adequate hair loss treatments continues.
