While crowning glory is often referred as women’s asset, having thick hair is also an advantage for the men. Aside from growing a beard, gentlemen these days are trimming and grooming their hair more carefully.
Why not, studies show that the “Samson effect” is real: men appear more successful with hair. Researchers saw that when looking at photos of men before and after their hair transplants, participants found the men after their hair transplants more attractive, approachable, and successful compared to the photos of the same men before the transplant.
However, this and other similar procedures aren’t always easy to come by, money-wise. Still, this doesn’t mean that men should just settle for thinning hair. They shouldn’t also just compromise on making their hair merely look thicker, but rather, focus on methods that can make the hair actually thicker. So, here are some easy home remedies for men to get that desirable and natural looking thick hair.
Eggs can help build up proteins in your hair to make it thick and also promote new hair growth. While your hair is still wet, take an egg and beat it well. Apply to your hair afterwards and leave it on for 10 minutes. Finally, rinse with lukewarm water.
Orange juice promotes thicker hair and is also a great way to treat dandruff. Take a sliced peeled orange and put into a food processor until there is fine pulp. Apply on hair and leave it for 20 minutes. Doing so once a week can lead to fuller, thicker hair in a few months.
Rub aloe vera gel on scalp and let it rest for 30 minutes. Rinse off afterwards.
Fenugreek or methi seeds are great in taking care of any dandruff issues. Soak seeds in water and leave them overnight. In the morning, make the seeds into a paste and apply to your hair. Leave for 30 minutes before rinsing off.
Mash avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil. Apply on freshly washed and damp hair as a mask. Leave on for 20 minutes before rinsing and following-up with conditioner.
Coconut oil or olive oil
Rub coconut or olive oil onto the scalp and massage gently. Wash hair with tepid water afterwards. Olive oil in particular has omega-3 fatty-acids that contribute to hair becoming thicker.
Thickening hair products
Aside from the ingredients you can find in your kitchen, over-the-counter and effective products like Regroe can help you achieve thick hair. Its main ingredient, Minoxidil is scientifically proven to promote hair growth as it stimulates hair matrix cells to divide and multiply in order to produce longer and thicker hair.
These are just some of the various ways men can do to get thick hair. So while women carefully protect and maintain their hair, you as a man should too. Doing so will pay-off in the long run and will make you look more handsome and suave than just simply rocking that manly scruff. Because why choose either a glorious beard or voluminous locks when you can have both?
