Eggs

Eggs are high in protein, which is essential for the body to build strong, thick hair. When used regularly, an egg treatment may help thicken and strengthen a person’s hair.

To use an egg treatment:

  • Beat 1 or 2 eggs together

  • Apply the eggs to the scalp and damp hair

  • Leave the eggs on the scalp for about 30 minutes

  • Wash hair thoroughly with warm water and mild shampoo

Olive Oil

Olive oil is rich in Omega3 acids and other nutrients that are essential for overall health, including hair health. When applied directly to the scalp and hair, olive oil helps promote thicker hair. Olive oil also has the added benefit of softening the hair and relieving dry scalp.

To use olive oil:

  • Heat the oil to body temperature

  • Massage the warm oil into the scalp and hair

  • Leave in hair for about 30 to 45 minutes

  • Rinse out the olive oil with mild shampoo

  • Some people add honey to the olive oil and others suggest leaving the olive oil on overnight using a shower cap to cover the hair.

Orange Puree

The vitamin C, pectin, and acid in oranges can help a person’s hair in a few different ways. The vitamins and nutrients may improve hair’s natural luster, which makes the hair appear thicker. The acid in oranges helps break apart residue left from hair products. These residues may interfere with hair growth. Unlike some of the other treatments, orange puree has a pleasant scent that makes the treatment more enjoyable. A person can use orange puree as a hair treatment by blending fresh oranges then massaging the puree into the hair and scalp. Leave the puree on the hair for about 1 hour before rinsing it out. Some people like to use a light conditioner to dehydrate their hair following an orange puree treatment.

  • Blend fresh oranges

  • Massage the puree into the hair and scalp

  • Leave the puree on the hair for about 1 hour before rinsing it out

Avocado

Avocado is rich in vitamin E, and many people believe it to be a good moisturizer. Make a simple avocado rub and apply it twice a week.

To make an avocado rub:

  • Combine the fruit of 1 avocado with 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Apply the mixture to hair and scalp

  • Let it sit for about 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly with mild shampoo
