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.

Stimulate your scalp

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).
Nasty chemicals. The major culprits for hair thinning and hair loss.
