How to grow thicker and longer hair naturally

Long, thick, beautiful hair.  We all dream about it.  Right back to our childhood fantasies about Walt Disney princesses.  From Rapunzel, to Jasmin, to Ariel.  If there’s one thing these ladies have in common, it’s their luscious locks that seem to defy the laws of nature - we’re pretty sure Ariel wouldn’t be too pleased about all the sea water in her hair in real life.  The good news is that there are a few simple things you can do to help thicken and grow your tresses naturally And we’re sharing them with you.   

Feed your hair the right things

Protein.  A powerhouse nutrient for strong and gorgeous locks. Hair is made of protein, so it only makes sense to include it in your diet.  Eggs are our number one choice.  We love them because they’re packed with essential amino acids – the building blocks for thicker hair.  But that’s not the only reason why we recommend them.  Their yolks nourish us with biotin, a B vitamin that’s been shown to thicken our tresses.  

Snack on nuts.  They’re an incredible source of protein too.  Almonds are our favourite because of their stress-busting effects.  Almonds are high in magnesium, nature’s answer to prozac And with stress being one of the leading causes of hair loss, it only makes sense to stock up on calming foods.

Omega 3.  Is there anything this fabulous fat can’t do?  Besides helping to manage stress too, Omega 3 is essential for long and glossy locks.  It keeps your scalp moisturised and your hair shafts sealed.  So no more split ends.  But not just any Omega 3 will do We suggest upping your intake of small oily fish like sardines and mackerel.  They’re packed with the right kinds of Omega 3, EPA and DHA.  Don’t worry if oily fish is not your kind of thing.  You can always take our mighty Lion Heart capsules.  They’re so high in EPA and DHA, we’re convinced they’re Rapunzel’s secret.

Stimulate your scalp 

If only we all had hair like Nicole Scherzinger.  But maybe we can.  Nicole claims her healthy hair is all down to massaging her scalp.  It might seem far-fetched, but there is some science to it.  Stimulating your scalp increases blood flow (and with it all the oxygen and nutrients we absorb) to your hair follicles.  It’s like a fertilizer for hair growth.  At the very least, it’ll help you relax.  For a little treat, try massaging your scalp with almond oil and three to four drops of rosemary essential oil (or get someone else to do it for ultimate relaxation)  

Avoid the nasties 

Nasty chemicals.  The major culprits for hair thinning and hair lossSulphates have incredible cleansing properties, which is why they’re in shampoos And we mean incredible.  They’re used to clean car engines in the automobile industry.  Never mind our hair.  Sulphates are so strong that they strip hair of its natural oils making it brittle and prone to breakage.  We suggest choosing a sulphate-free, natural shampoo.  You may even notice your hair will soften so much, you won’t need a conditioner.
