Comprised mainly of smaller medium-chain fatty acids, the oil is also able to penetrate more deeply and faster than most other conditioners, and because it’s 100% natural you can use it as much as you like without any damage.

But I am afraid these tips are not going to work, or be a waste of time(of which i don’t have a lot of). My hair also sucks to get oil out of so what treatment do you recommend?

Thx in advance 4 ur prompt response 2 my questions! Laurie
Hello, I have been struggling with my hair for about 4 months now. Back in May I had decided to go back to my natural hair color from being platinum blonde. My natural is an ashy dark dirty blonde. Unfortunately doing it at home was my first mistake, and I ended up with red hair. I went to my old high school which has a salon with students working in it, which was my second mistake. They got my hair to a more manageable color but cut off around 3-4 inches when I only wanted 1 inch off. I was devastated.. and my hair was very very dry and thin and lifeless everywhere except about 5 inches on the top of my head. Since then I have added a lot more blonde highlights to get closer to my natural color as it wasn’t going a weird orange red color from the previous red dye. It has gotten a lot more moisturized and feels much less dry since then, but regardless is still very stringy and lifeless looking and very hard to style and maintain volume. The natural state of my hair has never been very volumous , but when I had bleached it the texture changed and it felt a lot thicker. I desperately want that hair back but cannot bleach my hair in this state.. so the only thing I can really do is grow it all out again till I have my natural 100% hair back to bleach it again , with caution to have minimal damage. I have been taking hairbrush vitamins, a b-complex vitamin, as well as trying to drink more water and eat more of the right foods. I’ve also recently started doing a castor oil and coconut oil leave in treatment, which has made it feel stronger. Do you have any advice for me? I am just so desperate to feel some weight to my hair.. it feels like air when I move my head back and forth and doesn’t even feel like it’s there. I also have parts on the top of my head on the right side that got burned off from bleaching back in January this year, they have grown about 6 inches out now but look very odd and stick out unless I straighten them with light heat. I don’t straighten any other parts of my hair anymore as I used to every day and that definitely contributed to the damage I face now. I used to have such beautiful long healthy hair and my confidence has mostly diminished because of all this. I am just desperate to feel like myself again. Thank you for taking the time to read 🙂
Orange juice is also a really great way to promote thicker hair and smells super refreshing. It promotes hair growth, thickens hair, and is great for treating dandruff. To use an orange to help you with your need for thicker hair, take a sliced orange, peel and all, and put it in a food processor until you have a fine pulp. This pulp should be applied to your hair and left on for twenty minutes. Doing so once a week will lead to fuller, thicker hair in a matter of months.
Ultimately, balding is a part of life, because it’s a part of death. Hair-loss treatments and replacements speak to a grim side of us that seeks immortality, of wanting to be young forever. Growing old is just as important in life as being young. In fact, it may be more important, and being comfortable with your body as it ages is a massive part of that.
Hi Cindy I’m not too sure really it depends on your normal hair growth rate and whether these tips personally work for you.Why don’t you give them a go and make sure you keep a record of your length of hair every few weeks?
Demodex folliculorum is a mite that lives on the face. For most people, their presence is harmless. However, in larger numbers, they can cause skin problems. This is more likely in people with certain skin conditions or weakened immune systems. We look at the causes, symptoms, and treatments of Demodex folliculorum.
There are limits to how thick any given person’s hair can get, but you can certainly increase the thickness of your hair. Using high-quality shampoo and conditioner, using coconut and/or castor oil (ideally left in overnight and then washed out – it could make your hair look greasy, so you might not want to have it in during the day), and getting good nutrition can all help. How to Get Healthy, Strong Hair has some more dietary and other tips.
“This simple method is very robust and promising,” Fukuda said. “We hope this technique will improve human hair regenerative therapy to treat hair loss such as androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). In fact, we have preliminary data that suggests human HFG formation using human keratinocytes and dermal papilla cells.”
While zinc can help with hair growth for those who are deficient, too much zinc in a non-deficient person can have the opposite effect. I’m currently experiencing hair loss due to supplementing zinc. Please present the complete picture when making recommendations.
Bobs don’t always have to be layered. If you want to celebrate your thick hair and make it even bigger, get it stacked. The hairdresser term for it is “graduated”. This haircut will give you a lot of volume. To add even more volume, curl it!
This is a style that needs some attention every day to get the perfect finish, so having a good hairdryer and a hair straightener would be needed to perfect the look, along with using the correct hair products.

Iam a woman at age 69 and my hair is thining. I hate it when the gray hair sticks out like a sore thumb. I want to purchase a vitamin suppliment that will help my hair to grow. Iam using a shampoo for thinning hair, however, I know I need to take something to help on the inside. I have limited income and can not afford much. Can you offer me any suggestions?
I have rapid hair fall since 2months I tried eggs but use of egg led to more hair loss what should I do?? M not getting any option m making two plates even but my hair is falling down rapidly and I m 15 years old what should i do pls suggest
Hi Mel. The average rate of hair growth is roughly 0.5inches/month so achieving 15 inches in a year and a half is very unlikely. To increase hair growth, be sure to try out tips! I thoroughly recommend coconut oil and the inversion method 🙂
Hi Johanna, thanks for your question. Do you mean your middle parting is growing slowly? Have you found the parting is getting bigger? It sounds like you may have some slow hair growth, give the tips in the article a go. I wouldn’t suggest cutting your hair again unless you prefer it to be shorter.
Hi Suzanne! Thanks for your comments, I’ve had a short hair cut and while it was a nice change I did find it incredibly hard to manage! I am a big fan of oils, in general, to be honest, I agree cold pressed castor oil is fantastic for eyelashes and hair but in my personal experience I didn’t find that it worked better or less than coconut or olive oil. But, having said that I do know people who swear by it. I would say it’s not an exact science so whichever you prefer and works for you. I like to get mini bottles wherever possible and figure out what works for me.
Yes egg is giving amazing result..but not possible to use every one (middle class fmlys) bcoz its littlebit expensive..so can I suggest them use it once in a week?? Or give me another option because there is lots of hairfall prblm.
Massaging your scalp regularly with cold-pressed castor oil is one of the easiest ways to get thicker hair naturally. Due to its high viscosity, it coats the hair thoroughly and protects against hair fall. Plus, being high in vitamin E and fatty acids, it promote hair growth.
Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each phase has specific characteristics that determine the length of the hair. All three phases occur simultaneously; one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another is in the telogen phase.
I am on a tight budget, so I use regular veg oil, and beeten eggs for protein. When I get back on my feet again, I’ll use the coconut oil, I know it works. Until then what I am using is working, my hair is thicker, shinny, and longer, I have gotten comments on my hair, I’m 50 years old, my hair was thinning and brittle. It takes a while longer, but I’m happy. Now my ex-husband can eat his heart out at my daughter’s wedding in June, cause he loves long hair and mine is growing below my boobs. Lol
Great! I can’t wait to use these new tips! Will get back to you with result! Just gave birth 7 months ago and 2 months ago after stopping breastfeeding my hair stop faking like crazy witch is normal they say, it’s hormonal! But now I just want to prevent it from falling or at least to start grow some new hair faster! These tips are promising non excited!
Hello Dr thanks for the info .Now I got lot of hopes. But the doubt is the rosemary oil and cedar wood of it is enough to get rid From Hari loss ? I am 21 years old but continues hair losses from the age of 18.is there is any powerful remedies…..thank u
What is clear is that the same thing happens in aging men and women. Hair follicles get smaller. The anagen stage of hair growth gets shorter, and the resting (telogen) stage gets longer. The result: Thin, very short hairs — and many follicles empty of hair shafts.

To reverse hair loss and increase hair strength, take one B-complex vitamin tablet daily or take biotin and vitamin B5 separately. Eating biotin and vitamin B5 foods, such as eggs, beef, chicken, avocado, legumes, nuts and potatoes, also helps you to avoid a deficiency and aid hair growth.

Some of the products are hair growth-stimulating shampoos, and others have a more complicated application process that requires you to sit with the product on your head and allow it to work. Do some research to figure out which is right for your needs.
This hairstyle is layered short and tight on the sides and in the back. It is longer and layered on the top, then connected to the hair on the sides and in the back. It is shorter in the back and gradually gets longer to the front, making the pieces instantly function as a trendy fringe.
Thankyou for sharing these helpful tips. I agree with the biotin thing, it works wonders for my hair. I also use curry powder and curd along with the onion juice to make my hair thick, long and bouncy. 🙂 Do check out my hair story as well.

The lob is really age appropriate for all women, making it a timeless and classic style that has continued to evolve over the last few decades. Versatile, easy hair is a way for women to feel put together and sexy all the time. My ultimate goal is to have everyone leave the salon feeling sexy with hair that they can style and maintain at home!
I would live to get advice on thicker hair, lighter eyes, longer eyelashes, facial tips and removing dark circles under eyes. Any and all health and healthy beauty tips. I enjoyed reading your tips would live to have it emailed to me. Thanks in advance.
I was always looking for how to grow hair faster and over the years I’ve experimented with lots of different hair products and home remedies. After a lot of reading and heaps of testing, I’ve finally found a formula that really does work. I’m mostly concerned with cultivating new hairs, but it was a very happy surprise to find my hair grew rapidly at the same time.
To help boost the method and give your hair an intensive moisturising treatment, every other day or for a few days during the seven, use a natural oil like Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Argan Oil whilst massaging. If you can, leave it in overnight in a shower cap. More on these oils later.

i also have done hair smoothing because my hair was very curly and very short (about 9inch only ) but doing a proper haircare and these remedies help me to grow my hair faster(now my hair is35inch long)
Oils rich in different fatty acid species have been used extensively in both animal and human studies to evaluate the effects on skin and hair health. Omega-3 fats nourish the hair, support hair thickening and reduce inflammation that can lead to hair loss, which is why fish oil benefits hair and is one of the top six vitamins for hair growth.
Try the Tangle Teezer once and you’ll never use a comb again. Short, flexible bristles have give to them so they won’t pull out fragile hairs, says hairstylist Mia Santiago of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger. You can even detangle wet hair: “If I used a paddle brush on my wet hair, I could make a voodoo doll of the hair that comes out,” she says.
Hey, I’m not very old but my hair has really been suffering….I had been skipping conditioner,using a lot of shampoo, showering in steaming hot water, and not getting my hair cut for maybe even over a year! I have been following these tips for about a month. My favorite meathod is using the coconut oil. My parents buy it for the dogs food, (to keeps their coat healthy, your welcome mom?), so I use it as well. Thank you soooo much for the tips. My hair has grown ALOT!
There’s been a revolution in biology. Armed with powerful new tools, scientists are learning how to read the complex chemical languages of the body, including how to coin new treatments for hair loss.
