Read on if your hair is becoming thin and limp, and you are looking for how to make it healthy, thick, and full body.

Tips To Stop Hair Thinning

Balanced Diet and Life Style

A diet low in nutritional value can be responsible for unhealthy skin and hair. Hair is fed by the nutrients present in your bloodstream. In general, a balanced diet helps improve hair condition and promote hair growth. A healthy, balanced diet includes protein, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and a moderate amount of fat.

Try to include the following foods in your diet to boost the chances of having healthy hair:

Fish: Oily fish has omega-3 fatty acids that help prevent a dry scalp.

Dark green vegetables: Vegetables like spinach contain high amounts of vitamins A and C. These vitamins improve hair’s condition.

Protein-rich foods: Eating protein-rich foods helps prevent weak and brittle hair. Legumes, beans, dairy foods, nuts, and lean meats provide protein.

Biotin-rich foods: Biotin is a vitamin that contributes to hair growth. Its deficiency can result in brittle hair, hair thinning, and loss. Sources of biotin include whole grains, liver, egg yolk, soy flour, and yeast. In addition, many over-the-counter (OTC) hair vitamins include biotin. However, biotin can distort the results of thyroid blood tests. So one should stop using or consuming biotin products for a few days before having a blood test.

Calcium-rich foods: Calcium is essential for hair growth. Rich sources of calcium include dairy products, such as milk, yogurt, and cheese.

A sedentary lifestyle, lack of sleep, stress, and poor health can all lead to unhealthy hair. The nutrients in the bloodstream feed hair. That explains why good blood circulation and nutrition are essential for healthy hair.

Note: Natural ingredients can nourish your scalp and hair and add strength and body to the hair. Most of these are available at home, such as eggs, yogurt, lemon juice, and many more. The texture and nature of your hair govern which one you should use. For example, lemon juice and egg white will benefit greasy hair. Both will help cut down the oiliness and cleanse, contributing body to the hair.


Protein makes your hair look thicker. It coats the hair and adds volume. You can apply curd and egg paste for half an hour before shampooing your hair. This will add volume to your hair. A whole egg is one of the most multipurpose ingredients. It offers silicon, sulfur, and fatty acids –these nourish the hair. In addition, the white of the egg works as a powerful agent on the hair. When you apply a whole egg to your hair, besides adding volume and thickness, it also adds shine to the hair. Beat a whole egg with a bit of milk to make a thickish consistency hair pack and apply it on the hair. After about half an hour, rinse the hair thoroughly with water. To eliminate the egg’s unpleasant odor, mix a few drops of eau-de-cologne in a mug of water and use it as a last rinse.

Hair Styling Products Care Tips

If you have fine, limp hair, you should avoid using hair styling products because such products weigh the hair down. You should use less shampoo while washing your hair, followed by a hair rinse. Or, you may apply a few drops of hair serum. For those who apply conditioner, the experts suggest using less quantity and applying at the ends and in the middle. If they have oily hair, they should avoid applying conditioner on the roots and scalp. After shampooing, don’t rub dry your hair with a towel. Just wrap the hair in a cotton towel and allow it to soak up the moisture.

If you have normal to dry hair, apply volumizing mousse or gel before drying your hair. This will help add shine and body to your hair.
