Thinning Hair? Here’s 4 Natural Remedies That Actually Work
At Organica, we know that natural products can be very effective at treating all kinds of health & beauty, and it's no different when it comes to thinning hair, frizz or dandruff! For each hair problem you may have, we've listed a few natural ingredients that can help you out, so you can look for them next time you're shampoo shopping!
Egg White Proteins, Creatine, Vitamin B5, Castor & Rosemary Oil
Thinning hair can be caused by a range of variants, from genetics, to over-dying your hair or even from aging. But whatever the cause, there are some natural remedies that can be highly effective.
The proteins that come from egg whites coat the hair, causing the strands of the hair to appear thicker and fuller. When your hair is thin, it’s important to also strengthen the strands you do have to prevent breakage. Creatine or vitamin B5 can helps nourish and strengthen the strands you do have. The key natural ingredient for strengthening and nourishing your hair, however, is Castor Oil, as it works to improve the health of your hair follicles, creating the perfect scalp condition for healthy growth. The vitamins and minerals will also nourish the hair, helping feel healthier and strong from the first use.
Barley and Rice Proteins & Hops Extract
Barley proteins work to moisturize and condition the hair, and the rice proteins adhere to the strands, helping add body to the hair. There is a reason why people sometimes suggest you should wash your hair with beer if your hair is a little on the flat side. If you don’t fancy washing your favorite lager down the drain, don’t worry, there are some shampoos that have beer extracts (and don’t usually smell like a brewery, thankfully!).
Locust and Guar Gums, Cocoa & Shea Butters
Both locust gum (from carob trees) and guar gum (from guar beans) will help calm your frizz down and tame your curls. Both act as natural biofilm formers, which means that they form a protective layer around your strands to help fight humidity. Even if your hair isn’t curly but just untamable, these are the ingredients to look out for, including shea or cocoa butter for a frizz-fighting hair mask.
Too Much Oil?
Peppermint Extract & Corn-starch
Peppermint will not only give you that tingly fresh feeling, but it helps remove sebum from your scalp, without being too harsh. So, any shampoos with peppermint in will leave your hair feeling squeaky clean prevent any oil build up over time. One of the key ingredients in dry shampoos is corn-starch, so you’re probably using it without realizing! It helps soak up the oil on the scalp as it’s very absorbent.
Licorice Extract, Apple Cider Vinegar, Lemon Juice, Tea Tree Oil & Honey
Licorice, although you may not be a fan of the flavor, can help with dandruff due to its anti-inflammatory properties. If you don’t fancy the smell of it, you can also try apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to gently exfoliate the flakes, and tea tree oil has an anti-fungal effect that can keep dandruff at bay!
We've included Lemon Juice in our 'Sleepy Head' Shampoo Bar to really make sure that you're scalp is to make your scalp as healthy as it can be because a healthy scalp = healthy hair!
We’re believers that natural products can be just as, if not more, effective than chemical products made in a laboratory. So instead of turning to harsher ingredients, you now know the best natural products to look out for to suit your hair needs!
