The Secrets to Thicker Hair

10 Top Tips for Thicker Hair.


Hormones, and health play a role in achieving thicker hair.


Your hair makes such a difference to how you feel. It isn’t a shirt you can change or a skin spot you can conceal. It’s not an impulse buy that you can return either.
We have what we were born with and our job is to help you make the most of it.

Thinning hair is a problem as we age and when stress or hormones get out of whack. We’ve got some tips on this for you today.

Hair loss and thinning get us all in the end. Thank your darling parents because genetics play a role. 


However, there are other factors, including hormonal imbalances, thyroid issues, poor diet and insufficient scalp circulation that increases the likelihood of not having thicker hair and losing it before you need to.


We really care that you have beautiful glossy healthy hair so here’s our list of ‘must dos’ and ‘try to dos’ to help you achieve thicker hair which you love and deserve.

Tips in more detail. 


1 Get Enough Essential Fatty Acids

These specific fats are critical to the proper body function and thicker hair. You cannot produce EFA’s on your own so eat ’em up.
EFA’s from walnuts, flaxseeds, fish and avocado are great for healthy hair.


2 Ramp Up Collagen Production With Vitamin C

As we age collagen breaks down, causing hair to be more vulnerable to breaking and thinning. Boost collagen by getting more vitamin C for thicker hair. 

Enjoy citrus fruits, strawberries and red peppers. Supplementing with Vit C can help boost collagen production and it’s great for your skin.


3 Boost Bioton 

Biotin, a water soluble vitamin B encourages hair and scalp health. Dietary sources of biotin include nuts, brown rice and oats.

A B-complex supplement that includes biotin and vitamin B6 can reduce hair thinning by increasing scalp circulation and rejuvenating hair follicles.


4 Boost Keratin Production with MSM

Methylsulfonylmethane aids in the production of keratin, the hair protein, while doing double-duty to strengthen hair follicles. Green vegetables, like Swiss chard, cabbage, alfalfa and watercress, contain a small amount of MSM.

Raw veggies are best but try cooked asparagus or beets. Also cow’s milk, meat, seafood, fruits and even coffee, tea, and best of all chocolate! (the dark kind of course)

MSM supplements are sold in health food stores and some pharmacies so check it out. 


5 Get Your Iron 

Iron is essential for hair growth so red meat, green leafy vege, leeks, cashews, dried fruit and berries are your friend. You need vitamin C to fully absorb iron from your food so follow that steak with a juicy tangelo or Lemon Drizzle Cake 


6 Give Your Hair A Mineral Boost

Minerals, silica and zinc are critical for hair growth. You can supplement but cucumber, mango, greens, beans, celery and asparagus are good sources. 

Natural Organic silica is also found in horsetail herb. Foods high in zinc are pumpkin seeds, oysters, brazil nuts, eggs, pecans.


7 Add The Herb, Saw Palmetto, Into Your Diet 

Historically, saw palmetto has been used by herbalists for hair loss in both men and women. It works as a hormone balancer. Recent research has shown this herb to help with hair loss. Worth investigating.


8 Address A Possible Under active Thyroid Gland 

Hypothyroidism can cause thinning hair. Add sea vegetables like kelp, nori, dulse, kombu and wakame, all of which are rich in iodine and may help to balance this condition.

9 Prevent Breakage With Vitamin E

Vitamin E nourishes damaged hair and prevents breakage. It helps the body to manufacture keratin. Foods high in vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds, pine nuts, dried apricots, spinach and olives.

10 Boost Scalp Circulation With Rosemary Essential Oil

Rosemary essential oil has been traditionally used to increase circulation to the scalp.

Add few drops of rosemary to coconut oil and massage your scalp then shampoo with our Energising Shampoo for a stimulated scalp tingling sensational experience.


Hair Treatments can help with scalp stimulation, to prevent breakage and plump up your hair.

Without these little helpers, your hair can still feel lack lustre and flat. Make the most of what you’ve got.

Olaplex it, Re-plump it and Energise it.
