I’ve tried the following hair treatments from nature with very good results for my own thinning hair. These are ancient hair treatments that have been proven to improve the condition of the hair shaft; thus encouraging the growth of healthier hair. I am not alone. Countless other men and women have experienced similar results.
Thin Hair Treatment: Castor Seed Oil
Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil is a natural emollient that penetrates the surface layers of the skin, making it softer and supple. Perfect for dry feet and heels or other excessively dry skin areas. Flower power benefits to the hair and scalp: prevents dry scalp; moisturizes hair and eliminates dry hair; deep conditions hair and scalp; thickens thin hair; prevents and reduces hair breakage and damage; increases hair growth; adds fullness and shine to hair; prevents and stops split ends (when applied on hair ends); stops frizziness; improves hair health.
Application: Cold Pressed and Cold Processed Castor oil is very thick and its scent might not be as pleasing to the senses as other oils, but its benefits of its flower power for your scalp and skin will definitely please you. Some prefer to mix it with other oils, to thin out the consistency. You can also choose to do the following.
Oil your scalp with cold processed castor oil to total 2-4 tbsp., depending on scalp area. It's okay to touch the roots but, try to avoid getting castor oil into to the rest of hair (since it can be hard to wash out if entire head is saturated). Gently massage oil into scalp. Do this prior to using Lustrous Henna® Dry Shampoo Powder.
Thin Hair Treatment: Phaseolus Aureus (Mung Bean)
The mung bean contains anti-oxidants and vitamin E. As a beauty treatment, it’s been used to smooth skin, stop acne and blackheads, body slimming and -to fertilize hair. Traditionally throughout Asia, pregnant mothers have comsumed mung bean because it is believed to ensure that the baby will have thick hair. This is due to the fact that body and hair cells depend on good nutrients, like the rich protein and vitamin B1 found in mung bean, as well as calcium and phosphorus for strong bones.
Application: You can find mung beans at Asia groceries. You can also find it ready to use, in combination with other flowering plants, known to improve hair condition and radiance. No need to hunt and search very far for this ancient hair thickener mix. Simply pick up a package of Lustrous Henna® Shampoo Powder. It not only contains the powerful benefits of this amazing botanical, but Lustrous Henna® Shampoo Powder also includes other totally natural hair-enriching conditioners, as well.
Thin Hair Treatment: Methi (Fenugreek)
Methi (fenugreek) seeds are and excellent natural hair treatment for follicular issues. It is a great source of protein that penetrates the hair shaft and then fills the hair shaft with moisture and enhances hair growth. This also aids in reducing baldness and prevents hair loss, (hair fall) or thinning of the hair. Methi seeds also contain high levels of lecithin. Lecithin is a natural emollient that gives strength and moisture to hair. The oils in methi seeds nourish the scalp and aids in preventing and stopping dandruff. Combined with other natural raw ingredients, it is excellent for deep conditioning of the hair.
Application: Coconut Methi Hair Mask
½ cup of methi seeds (not too much due to strong smell –will dissipate later)
2 ½ cups (or more) water
2 tablespoons pure virgin coconut oil
3 or 4 drops natural infused oil (rose, lavender, chamomile)
Make a paste by soaking methi (fenugreek) seeds overnight in water; in the morning, strain fenugreek seeds; in a mixer/grinder jar, grind with enough water to make into a paste. Add 2- 3 tablespoons of Pure Amla Powder, coconut oil and other oil drops and mix thoroughly. Apply mixture to scalp, then rest of hair. Cover with plastic cap and leave on for 30 minutes or longer. Rinse out gently with cool water.
