If you’re like many of us, you’re searching for the secret to growing thicker, fuller-looking hair. Thick hair is like liquid gold. It’s a bountiful accessory that gives us a wealth of versatile styling options. Not everyone is blessed with a full, voluminous head of hair. If you’re not one of the fortunate few blessed with a full head of voluminous hair, here are ten hacks for growing thicker, fuller hair.
Indulge in Good Scalp Care
Do not underestimate the role of scalp care in growing thick hair. Your hair care arsenal of goodies should include products like EMERA CBD Haircare, that not only cater to the health and thickness of your hair but the wellness and stability of your scalp. Your scalp is the foundation for your follicles and depends on several factors coming together to produce healthy hair. For advanced Scalp Care, try the EMERA CBD Scalp Therapy Treatment. Dozens of already satisfied customers have posted success stories on our facebook page, with astounding results!
A clean scalp is a must-have environment for your hair follicles. Your goal should be to cleanse and exfoliate your scalp at least once per week, ridding it of dirt, debris and product build-up.
Scalp massages are vital because they can help improve circulation and infuse critical nutrients that support follicle stimulation and hair growth. Ask your stylist about EMERASSAGE™, a special massage technique that is great for promoting scalp and hair health.
Essential Oils for Moisture and Follicle Stimulation
Your scalp is thirsty for essential oils like peppermint, chamomile, and hemp CBD oils, which can combat scalp irritation and dryness that may hinder hair growth.
Maintain a Healthy Scalp pH Balance
Scalp care products, like EMERA Nourishing CBD Scalp Therapy which contains hemp CBD oil, can promote a healthy pH balance and stable environment for boosting hair growth. A pH of 5 is considered ideal.
Use a Deep Conditioner or Masque Treatment
Good hair doesn’t just happen. Supplement your daily conditioner, with a deep conditioner or masque at least once a week. Be sure to leave it on for 3-5 minutes for best results. It will help to bring moisture back into your hair and repair damage, especially after frequent shampooing and other daily stresses.
Stay away from shampoos that contain sulfates. While they are great for creating lather, they can also be overly harsh, and potentially strip hair of natural oils necessary for hair elasticity and hair hydration.
Hair hydration is the ticket to having healthy hair but did you know that dehydration can halt or minimize the hair growth cycle, and result in brittle hair or dry scalp problems? To prevent that, make sure you are consuming enough water. Water comprises 25 percent of a single strand of hair. It’s no wonder that consistent water consumption boosts hair elasticity and thickness.
We suggest drinking a minimum of two liters of water per day to help ensure your hair is well hydrated.
Protect Your Hair and Scalp from Environmental Stressors
Beyond lack of hydration, another factor in scalp and hair health, and thus healthy hair growth, is environmental stressors. These include sun damage, air pollution, dust, debris, dry air, and temperature swings – all contributors to weakened, thinning hair.
To prevent environmental damage, make sure to use hair care products that are rich in antioxidants so you can protect your scalp and hair from these environmental problems, and can restore and maintain balance needed for hair growth. We know it’s not always practical, but when you can, wear a hat outdoors, or stay in the shade to avoid those troublesome UV rays.
Follow a Proper Diet
Your diet not only impacts your health but also affects the thickness of your hair. For thicker hair, eat foods that are rich in vitamin C including strawberries, citrus fruits, red and green peppers, tomatoes and broccoli. Next, ensure that your diet contains adequate levels of protein. Vegans may have to work a little harder at this particular tip, but there are plenty of options including beans, chickpeas, tempeh, edamame, lentils, and tofu that do not involve meat, also include Vitamin B in your diet – a major vitamin sometimes missed with a strict Vegan diet.
Another effective vitamin for growing thick hair is vitamin E. Vitamin E helps to reduce oxidative stress to our scalp and hair. Vitamin E also regulates oil produced by sebaceous glands in the scalp, thereby locking in moisture, and improving hair strength and elasticity. Therefore Vitamin E can be taken alone, or through eating vitamin E rich-foods such as nuts, seeds, wheat germ, canola, peanuts, and extra virgin olive oil. These are just a few tips for growing thicker, fuller hair. Remember to take care of those tresses and don’t skip your scalp care!
