Voluminous, shiny hair is always in style and we don’t believe that going au naturale means that you have to give it up! But obtaining the lush look without the help of chemical-based products can be easier said than done. We’ve tried high and low-end hair products aplenty that make our hair fuller and shinier, but coat the hair with layers of not-so-natural chemicals and petroleum-based waxes.
Since we don’t believe in sacrificing style, we’re always on the hunt for the best new natural solutions. In pursuit of a naturally gleaming mane, we reached out to the folks at Just Natural Organic Care to ask them for some tips to acheive perfectly flippable hair. Just Natural products are as pure as we’ve found and packed full of naturally effective botanical ingredients. When it comes to getting hair shiny and thick without chemical overload, products like their silk and kelp-based Protein + Vitamin Hair Treatment make us suspect that these guys know what their talking about.
Just Natural's Best 6 Tips For Thicker Hair
- 1. Nut & Fruit Oils
Use olive, avocado or coconut oil; rub it for a few minutes into the scalp, you can even leave it on overnight. In the morning, rinse it out using a mild shampoo. These specific oils help clear away debris, remove excess sebum, and rid hair of unwanted dirt. Clogged follicles can cause the thinning of hair.
- 2. Aloe Vera
Extract some aloe vera gel from a couple of their leaves and mix it with an egg. Apply the mixture to the scalp every two weeks.
- 3. Massage
Massaging and brushing your hair often stimulates the follicles and increases the blood flow, encouraging hair to grow healthy and thick. Almond oil, aloe vera gel and apple cider vinegar diluted in hot water are popular mixtures for massages.
- 4. Avoid Heat Processing
Do what you can to avoid perms and minimize heat appliances or any chemical based treatment that could hurt the hair.
- 5. Protein
Wash your hair daily or as preferred; go for shampoos that contain hydrolyzed proteins. They can make hair look thicker and fluffier.
- 6. Natural waves
Avoid tight or twisty hair styles; instead make your hair appear thicker by embracing naturally loose or curly looks. The shape and wave of your locks will give off a fuller form.
