Your hair-health is dependent on a few variables; genetics, diet, daily styling routine, and what products you use.

Unfortunately, some of us are follically challenged, and are forever on the look out for tips and tricks to improve our hair. If yours is thin and lifeless and you’re looking for ways to make your locks grow faster and thicker, you’re in the right place!

Here at Organica, we’ve got a list of seven weird and wonderful ways to encourage thicker, healthier hair growth, and some of them are so easy to try!


According to some, wearing a shower cap (or saran wrap) on your head while sleep will trap heat on your scalp and make your hair to grow faster. The results may take time to notice, but it should work if you do it every night! It’s a cheap and easy thing to test out at home. 


Seaweed, also known as Sea Kelp, is high in iodine, meaning it will aid normal thyroid function (one of the main reasons for hair loss). Not only this, but Seaweed is incredibly nourishing and will leave your hair feeling stronger, healthier and without a split end in sight!

We've used Seaweed in our new Shampoo, developed to fight hair loss and dandruff, improving scalp and hair health for stronger growth. It's quickly become one of our best-sellers and the results have been amazing. Try it for yourself! 


Handstands may sound a little extreme, but “the inversion method” is a real thing and has been proven to boost hair growth and follicle stimulation! If you’re not a trained gymnast, then simply hanging your head off the end of the bed for a few minutes will work just as well! The extra blood flow to the scalp will increase the follicle activity and help with hair health and thickness. For even better results, massage some coconut oil into your scalp before you hang!


Inexpensive, natural, and proven to work, castor oil could be your next hair-growth go-to! It contains omega-6 and omega-9 which help restore your hair’s healthy shine and encourage the follicles to grow hair quicker! It’s been said that it will help your hair grow from 3-5 times its normal rate. 

The most important thing about choosing your Castor Oil is to understand that not oils are made equal! Many oils on the market contain additives and emulsifiers which ultimately reduce their effectiveness, leading to some unwanted side effects. For Castor Oil to effectively encourage hair growth, it needs to be 100% organic, paraben-free and sulfate-free. This was it ensures maximum purity of the oil and optimal benefits to your overall health. This is exactly how we made our very own Organica Castor Oil. It’s cold-pressed, addictive-free and vegan!


If you’ve had the same side-part and straight cut your whole adult life, it’s time for a change! Switching up your parting can actually give your hair volume and help the roots sit higher. Try using thickening powders, too, that help add texture to lacklustre hair. If you’re prone to tying your hair up in elastic bands every day, opt for a looser style or try telephone-wire hair bands which cause less breakage instead.


When it comes to our shampoo, sulfates are NOT your friend! They leave your scalp super dry and inhibit hair growth – not ideal! If you’re trying to improve the health and thickness of your hair, look for products that are sulfate free, like our Sleepy Head Shampoo Bar. Our products were formulated with this in mind, and we wanted to ensure none of our hair care range has any sulfates in them.

We’ve developed a Shampoo Bar, which not only improves scalp hydration and includes relaxing essential oils, but is equivalent to 3 bottles of regular shampoo, saving your scalp and the planet! Sulfates are used in regular shampoos to help lather up the formula, but as a solid shampoo bar there’s no sulfate whatsoever in our shampoo bar. Only natural nourishing ingredients and calming oils.  


Now, this one definitely sounds a little cuckoo, but there is some science behind the madness. In most topical creams used for yeast infections, there are active anti-fungal ingredients, in particular one called Monistat. This has been shown to prevent hair loss, and help thicker, longer hair to grow. If you’re willing to try it, it could be worth a go…


If you struggle with thinning hair, or just want to add some volume to your locks, there are some inexpensive and easy tricks you can try today. For a more permanent solution that’s backed by science, try our Castor Oil for longer, thicker and stronger hair. And to make sure you’re not using sulfates in your shampoo, switch over to our solid Sleepy Head Shampoo Bar to nourish your scalp and strengthen your hair, naturally.
