1 – Change Your Diet

Did you know that the hair shaft mostly made up of water? Drinking water is like watering a plant, drink at least 64 ounces every day. Nutrition also plays a big factor in healthy hair growth. Be sure to eat protein-rich foods such as eggs, milk and fish.

2 – Exercise

Exercising relieves stress and increases the blood flow throughout your body. Sweating will also unclog your scalp, which will aid with hair growth.

3 – Avoid Over Manipulation & Styling

Over manipulation may be the reason why you’re experiencing thinning hair. You may have to give your protective styles such as braids and twists a break. Let your hair breathe by wearing looser styles or even wearing it out.

4 – Scalp Massages

Stimulate and invigorate your scalp by massaging it with essential oils for increased hair growth. A great essential oil for scalp massages is rosemary oil, because it reduces graying and thinning.
