 Homemade Remedies to Make Hair Thick

Aloe vera is used to remedy thin hair.
Homemade hair-thickening remedies work either by temporarily adding volume to each shaft of hair or by creating a healthy scalp environment where more hair can grow. In some cases, results are immediately visible, but they are generally short-lived. For the best results, use a homemade hair-thickening remedy on a regular basis.

After shampooing, massage an egg into your hair and let it sit for about 5 minutes. The non-hydrolyzed protein in an egg mimics the hydrolyzed proteins in hair-thickening shampoos, according to Dr. Harry Roth, a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California.

Massage a mixture of 1 Tbsp. white or apple cider vinegar and 1 pint of water into your hair. The solution temporarily changes the chemical balance of your hair and make it appear thicker and shinier.

Oil Massage
Scalp massages with olive oil, lavender oil and jojoba oil are thought to help rid the scalp of debris and excess sebum and dirt, resulting on cleaner, thicker hair and healthy follicles. Massaging the scalp also increases blood flow to the scalp, which may encourage healthier, thicker hair growth. Rub a few drops of oil into the scalp before bedtime and leave it on overnight. Wash with a mild shampoo in the morning and style as usual.

Aloe Vera
Using a tablespoon or so of fresh aloe vera gel squeezed directly from the leaves, either alone or with a mixture of brandy and raw egg, may make your hair appear thicker. Apply the gel or mixture once every two weeks and shampoo as usual.

Flax Seed
A leave-on conditioner made from flaxseeds and water may temporarily thicken hair. Soak a handful of flax seeds in water for five days and apply the water directly to your scalp with a cotton ball before styling.
