Thick hair is beautiful and is sought by many. It’s a sign of good health and can be achieved by practicing healthy hair habits. Women with relaxed hair however may face more challenges when it comes to achieving or maintaining thicker hair, so healthy hair care techniques must be applied to achieve hair growth and thickness. Follow the simple steps below to achieve healthier and thicker relaxed hair.
This means to space out the amount of time between relaxers. Instead of waiting 8wks for a touch-up, wait 12-20wks. This will prevent overlapping relaxers which causes breakage and thin hair. Keeping the hair moisturized makes stretching easier.
Massage Your Scalp Regularly
Massaging will stimulate blood flow to your scalp. This action nourishes the hair follicles, stimulates hair growth, and may prevent unnecessary hair loss. Massage with a mixture of jojoba and peppermint oil to further increase intensity and stimulation of your scalp massage.
Apply Castor Oil Twice A Week
Castor oil is known to reduce and prevent damaged hair. It contains omega-9 fatty acids which help to moisturize the hair and the scalp. Apply castor oil to your scalp and roots 2x’s per week to achieve thicker hair. Make sure that the castor oil is unrefined and natural like Jamaican black castor oil or castor oil purchased from your health food store.
Take A Hair Vitamin
Hair vitamins provide an excellent source of nourishment for hair. They contain ingredients like biotin, MSM, silica, amino acids, and vitamin B complex which all provide the dietary support we need to obtain healthy thicker hair.
