10 Ways to Naturally Thicken your Hair!


The best way to naturally thicken hair is doing things as part of a regime – this must be understood. The aim is of this article is to illustrate to you, that targeting your overall body health is the key factor here – and that a regime specifically designed for hair growth, combined with some products, oils, and scalp massage, will do wonders for getting thicker hair and stopping hair falling out naturally.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (Feb 2018) – From old studies on the causes of hair loss in men and women, we have found that inflammation to be a key factor which actually makes hair fall off; so if you are a man with hair loss, chances are you have high DHT which then causes inflammation to your scalp which then causes hair loss – the inflammation is the keyword, not DHT – so if you are a women, with hair thinning, then your hormone or stress levels are causing your inflammation – use the holistic health regime from below – but also do 2 extra things:

Massage Scalp everyday before bed for at least 10 minutes a day (yes really!) – You can use a scalp massager machine, or finger tips, but consistency is what gets results (results can mean, stopped hair loss to new hair regrowth depending on various factors).

Use the Taoist Soap to help stop Hair loss (found here: www.Taoistsoap.com and allow your body to regenerate hair by itself (if you make the right conditions, you will regrow hair – the myth about hair being lost once gone is nonsensical, because the body is constantly replicating itself and renewing itself, the right conditions allows it to renew whatever that needs to be renewed!) – this soap helps stop inflammation, and is a great tool to assist in this – that said, do the regime below, to get powerful renewal of the body (including hair).

1. Aerobics to Increase Hair growth rate by 40%

cardio for thickening hair growth


An intense jogging routine where you jog 3-4 times a week – will increase detox, increase circulation and break down fat within organs – this in turn will produce better hormones, balanced hormones that help hair growth.

Increased circulation is the main objective here. If the body is not being taken care of, over time, circulation decreases, and hair is the first to go; capillaries are the thinnest blood vessels, and can easily stop/reduce circulation if aerobic activity is not maintained – the human body is actually not designed to stay sitting for more than 30 minutes, anywhere!

Even Eastern Medical books, talk about how lack of circulation is the cause of almost all disease and illness – it shows a lot when you think of it on the grand scale of things.

2. Yummy Herbs and Vitamins to Increase hair growth thickness by 30%

There are a few natural remedies that you can use to thicken your hair naturally – they are as follows:

NIACINThis is a powerful vitamin that is already present in the body. The best thing about this is that it increases blood circulation to the “edges” of your body (especially areas which have blocked circulation) – including scalp. It is important to understand that Niacin produces a flush effect on the body – this is when the blood is forced to enter capillaries in the skin and scalp and you start to feel warm. Some people buy the “non-flush” version, but this version does NOT WORK – avoiding the flush is avoiding circulation going into your capillaries – flushing IS the medicinal effect you need.

Depending on your condition, you can take it for up to 18 months and should see positive results. It helps detox your scalp from plaque built up in the capillaries, thus allowing free blood circulation to your hair and skin.

Bonus: Try to start with 50mg Niacin dosage, and after two weeks, take double the amount, daily – please be aware that this may give you a flush, and this is a good sign that it is working. If you don’t get a flush, keep increasing dosage after every week by 100 mg; whatever you do, do not buy non-flushing type, as this is not effective and is dangerous for the liver and kidney.

B-Complex – Most illnesses and misalignments in the human body today, occur from one thing – STRESS! You heard it before, and I am repeating myself because this is important. Stress levels in the whole world have increased – Whilst good levels of stress is healthy, and needed for any life form to grow, extreme amounts of it will cause disease – see study here on stress and disease.

Due to the mind body connection, when stressed, your body produces stress hormones, which if released over long periods of time, damages the body; first thing to go are secondary processes in the body, like hair (as it’s not vital for the body to survive).

Not only that, but stress tightens the scalp region (have you ever seen a stressed out mom’s facial muscles?) – this reduces blood circulation, and overtime, will affect the skin and hair as well as organs in that area. Taking B-Complex vitamins enables the body to not only better cope with stress, but also upgrades the body’s nervous system, that normal stressful situations, don’t seem bad anymore; allowing you to make better decisions and staying mentally and physically healthy at the same time (that’s way more than 2 birds than one stone!).

Stinging Nettle Extract: This is a powerful yet cheap way to detox your body from excess hormones like DHT and other hormone residue that builds up in the liver – this is what will help prevent a further imbalance – and indirectly reduce inflammation, the root cause of hair loss. It is essential to take this, liquid or capsule form – but make sure you aren’t allergic to this.


2a. Coolest Oils for Thickening New Hair Growth

scalp massage for hair growth

There are very few oils that help with hair growth – all the popular oils like castor oil, olive oil are not good for long term use, and will bring short term results as long term use causes another imbalance – such as coconut oil is great, but it will dry your hair and then cause the hair problem to worsen, so you can use coconut oil but not everyday, just once in a while.

The only oil that we have found that is very effective, and that holds the right amount of potency to help with the hair growth process and stopping inflammation is called the Immortal’s Oil – they deliver worldwide – the oil can last a very long time so ordering just 2-3 bottles will be enough if you are really serious about hair growth. 

Using the Immortal’s Oil for daily scalp massage is one of the best and fastest ways to getting improved quality hair, thicker and faster growth as well – it’s also used by people who are trying to grow longer hair and their hair isn’t growing past a certain length.

If you don’t want to buy – just at least make sure you are doing scalp massages – the scalp health is key to hair health.


2b. Protect hair follicles with antioxidants

The direct reason of hair actually falling out of the hair follicle is solely due to inflammation of the hair follicle (caused by DHT) – Many people attempt to resolve this problem by attempting to reduce DHT, and this does not always solve it, nor is the right method of resolving such a problem. The problem should be resolved by stopping inflammation to even occur and this can be done by three ways:

Eating foods high in antioxidants; highest on your list should be Spinach and Kale (in their raw form). They contain zeaxanthin, a very powerful antioxidant that will stop inflammation from occurring. Eat a handful with every meal.

Reducing or completely stopping high sugar intake; by stopping sugar and high carb intake, you are literally taking away the food that inflammation feeds from; this includes white sugar, brown sugar, all forms of breads and rice. This is only for a certain period of time, 3-6 months or 1 year depending on how servere the problem used to be.

– Supplementation on powerful super-antioxidants; Astaxanthin is a red pigmented super-antioxidant that is found in marine life. It actually has the ability to completely restore a cell’s health if taken in enough quantities (4mg 1-6 times a day).

The other super-antioxidant is Zeaxanthin, which was mentioned above (found in Spinach and Kale). It is best to take this with Spinach for highest absorption rate (and best value for your money).

See this article on the aging process of hair, and how they grey prematurely and the main cause of this is oxidation (which antioxidants resolve if you eat and supplement from them).


3. Chemical Shampoos need a kick in the butt

Throw away your current shampoo and conditioner bottles; they are most likely filled with hair killing chemicals. Go for all natural shampoo with only a few natural ingredients. Its best to buy a few different bottles to see which one best suits your hair. Beware of companies advertising as all natural, but hiding the ingredients in some legal form or another.

I suggest if you can afford the best of the best around, to use the Taoist soap as your new antiinflammatory tool- it will help detox your skin, and allow your hair follicles on your scalp, to rejuvenation and help regrow hair – don’t worry, it will not grow hair on places there shouldn’t be hair.  The way it works is simply by allowing increased blood circulation (and stopping inflammation) as well as advanced yet gentle detox – combine this with a daily hair massage regime, you have a master hair re-growth plan!

It is hard to find companies that are actually selling products that are genuine – so I cannot say enough on how powerful the Taoist soap really is – you have to try it for yourself. Best part is, you don’t have to use it everyday, and you still can incorporate it with other shampoos if you really wanted to – I personally use it once or twice a week, and this makes the soap very long lasting (at least 6 months!).

4. Stop Caffiene Intake to Increase Circulation and push Kidney function

Caffiene used to be hyped as something that increases circulation – their were even caffiene shampoos that were created by many german companies – but the truth is, caffiene is a vessel constrictor, which means it reduces circulation over time – especially if you are a regular drinker, it is a good idea to cut it out for some time – 1-2 months is a great start.

Caffiene also is a stimulant which stimulates the adrenal glands – when adrenal glands go through such a thing long term, this drains the kidney function – in Eastern medicine, the kidney function also controls the hair growth on the head – this is why a healthy kidney means youthful appearance, including hair growth.

It is important to note, even green tea has caffiene – so find an alternative drink, which does not have it – you will reap the benefits – do not ignore this point, as it is one of the most powerful points and most ignored.

5. Stop using hair dryers, gels and wax

If you are really serious about preventing any further hair loss and regrowing hair, I hope you will really consider doing this. It is vital that you stop putting in any chemicals in your hair that may be causing more damage than anything else. If you do have to use styling products, use water based natural wax; and only use very small amounts.

Paraben and fragrance free shampoos will help prevent damage, although they will not help stop inflammation – hence the reason why we reccomended the soap earlier in this post.

6. Stop Artery Clogging foods to thicken hair

Your arteries get clogged from years of abuse of over eating fat and deep fried foods (vegetable based oils); stop it. Don’t take any deep fried foods and avoid fats for at least 1 month. After that, you may occasionally have the foods on parties or dinners, but be very careful; ignoring this point can sabotage your hair re-growth – and overall health.

Replace your cooking oil with sesame based oil (non-toasted) or Grape seed oil. Cooking vegetable oil (including olive oil) are found to be more damaging when heated up – so keep them only for salad use, rather than use for cooking – cooking changes their structure of these oils as they have a low boiling point.

The blood vessels in the scalp are so thin, that they get blocked very easily – fatty and rich foods tend to create more fat deposits, and can easily block a lot of vessels in the scalp as they are very thin – this is why scalp massage works wonders, even 10 minutes a day.

7. Weight loss for preventing Hair loss – yes its true.

This one might have seemed obvious, but getting into shape and losing the excess fat will help unclogging your capillaries leading to increased circulation, which will greatly help in hair re-growth; especially if done with the rest of the activities listed here.

If you already do this, this means you have to do something which you don’t do – for example someone who is always jogging, would need to do some weights and yoga – someone who is always doing yoga will need to do jogging and similar cardio – because if you have hair loss at your current state, and you already do jogging for example – that means your cardio health is good, but your muscular and hormonal health has not been taken care of, this applies to men and women.

We have to understand that hair thinning is a complex problem – it doesn’t get resolved by just doing one activity – you have to carry out a regime.

8.Take a Chill pill my Friend, its not the end of the world

I have notived that a lot of people who suffer from hair thinning also have a personality similarity – in the sense that they will handle stress in a certain way – by not handling it and getting stressed out – also some of them have highier rates of anxiety – worrying about a situation faster and more intensely than other people would.

It is vital to understand this – because in Eastern medicine – your hormones are your emotions – they both control eachother – we already know this from steriod use affecting emotions – the same is true with having certain emotions which induce certain hormones – its the body mind effect – obviously if you have an emotion, your body has released those chemicals for you to feel that way – this is why you can control your body and its emotions – relax, things will work out.

Take a B complex vitamin a day (Solgar is a good brand for this) to help you – but results show in long term – you still should actively involve yourself in managing your thought patterns as they directly affect your emotions, and this will directly affect your hormones – and hormones will directly affect the scalp and body condition.

9. Control your Urges to Mate to thicken hair naturally

Sexual activity releases a lot of essential body fluid of the body – in Eastern medicine, this drains Kidney energy when done too much – but when you are already losing hair, it is a good idea to manage this, and control sexual activity for a time.

This even applies to when you are sick, or feeling unwell – controling sexual activity will help you recover faster – if you want scientific studies, then start now, and test on yourself – boxers knew this, and this is why weeks before a tournament they did not have sexual activity of any kind to build up their strenght.



10. Massage your head to remove plaque from capillaries (Vital for regrowth)

Massage your scalp up many times a day everyday to increase scalp circulation – This forces new capillaries to form, as well as unblock previously closed capillaries – allowing the hair follicles to rejuvenate and start producing hair – and eventually, thicker hair.

Of course, if many times a day is too much, then just do it before you sleep for at least 15-30 minutes – and then, in the morning, use the Taoist soap, and rub it deep into the scalp and leave it in for at least 3 minutes. You do not need to massage it with oil every time – in fact, doing it without the oils is just as good, especially when done regularly over a long period of time.

When you take care of the scalp health, you naturally take care of the hair follicle – and you grow thicker hair.

12. Heal your Digestive System for encouraging hair regrowth naturally

It has been known for years that your digestive system is the first line of defense, and a major part of your body’s immune system, if this is damaged, your body will focus on keeping that part of it alive, and leave out less important functions, such as hair and skin regeneration.

The chances are, that if you are on a western diet, which mixes your meat and carbs together during meals, the stomach loses its ability to absorb nutrients; so even if you are eating all the right foods, you may not be absorbing them.

The way to reset this is by adding Bone soup into your diet – as this is the most powerful soup you can make for regenerating your stomach.

There is a Chinese proverb used in acupuncture “if the stomach is at ease, so is the mind” – this is also an important aspect in Eastern medicine, and will be the best way to grow thicker hair naturally.

  1. Thanks a lot for all the tips. I have never tried any of them but I will make sure to.


  2. Great list of hair growth methods, I have been practicing at least half of them now and i think this is the very reason for my hair being healthy and thick.

    I just think hair regrowth is such a tabboo in western medical, as they say that its not possible unless you use their drugs permanently.

    anyway thank you for posting this, will be sharing with all my friends and family, especially the ones that could do with natural hair regrowth lol.

  3. Thank you for your comment. It helps to know some people already are well aware of these points above.

    To hair health! =)

  4. I been following your advice for 5 days and already stopped the inflammation on my scalp and my hair has stopped falling. I’m sure this will work at least maintaining my hair, if not regrowing it.

  5. I have used massaging on the head regularly to get results. but after about a 2 weeks of every massage of more than 15 minutes, i noticed i got sore on the scalp, but my scalp got sensitive, but felt good, like a layer of dead skin was removed or something.

  6. Yes, regular scalp massage starts to remove the plague built up in your scalp, so after about 14 days or so, or sometimes longer, you start to feel such side affects. They are normal and nothing to worry about, in fact you should be happy that your getting results and improving blood flow.

  7. Thank you VERY MUCH for this info. Lack of vitamins, addiction to sugar, and frequent sexual activity is HORRIBLE for you’re body and especially you’re hair. Thank you thank you thank you.

  8. the biggest secret always was, being sensible – and this is what I try to communicate. May you master your health! Thank you for your comment.

  9. You make some good points. Don’t necessary agree with you about animal fat, which is much more stable than vegetable oils, which is the number one reason deep fried foods are so bad for you. Most vegetable oils become toxic just being exposed to air, and when cooked at high heat produce trans-fatty acids, looked now to be a major cause of clogged arteries. Olive oil is great for you, until you heat it at temperatures high enough to cook food. Grape seed oil would be a much better choice, since it has a smoke point of about 400 degrees. I have been using butter for years, and at the age of 51, I look much younger, I don’t go to doctors (M.D.s), take no medication, and I am slim and fit, and mistaken for a man 10 to 20 years younger. I would also like to clear something up you mentioned about sex. It’s not sex that ages a man, it’s ejaculation. The human male expends a tremendous amount of energy to produce semen (not sex). If a man learns to have sex without ejaculating (it is possible to learn) he can retain the energy normally lost, while in fact absorbing more from the act, thereby increasing his life span, not shortening it. I’ve been doing this for years, along with eating a healthy diet of organic meats, fruits, and vegetables. And yes, despite graying from age, my hair looks pretty good too.

  10. Thank you for your comment David – yes you are correct. I looked into the oils which are ideal for you, and you seem to be right on the spot about vegetable oils being heated; I was told this by a scientist I met in California and should have paid more attention.

    I will add this and explain it in further details.

    Yes ejaculation is the main cause of the energy release – but even when you practice non-ejaculation, it uses up energy (not as much, but still uses up energy) and for people in severe conditions, I usually ask them to stop it for 30-90 days for their body to recover – but in a healthy state, you can balance it like you mentioned you do.

    Yes, our grandparents always consumed butter and infact, those days it was in our culture that butter is good for you.

    Thank you for taking your time out and explaining your health regime, it will surely help others to improve their over-all health, let alone just hair growth on the scalp.

  11. Hi Mac,

    The website mentioned (handmadesoapuk.org) is the only supplier but they do ship worldwide, including the US.

    Hope that helps,

  12. Hello Ali,

    I read your article… it is too useful…im 24 years old lady from India…i had a long thick hair…but now….my hair has started falling….im feeling so sad…i massage my scalp daily before go to bed…and do oil massage twice a week…but still im having hair fall problem…im using head and shoulder shampoo and conditioner for hair wash… could you please help me from this problem….im fed up…plz ali…

  13. I really liked the article but just one thing. Well you can actually loose hair because of strict weight loss regime. I started to loose so much hair because of it. It can trigger Telogen Effluvium which may further lead to more harder to reverse type of hair loss. I started to itch a lot when it started. I will try other methods mentioned here though.

  14. I have had a hair transplant. The transplanted hair has come grown but is growing back, thin. What regime should I use to help promote thicker hair? Thanks for your help. Kind regards Altaf.

  15. Thank you for your comment – yes you can still do the above regime – especially scalp massage for 30 minutes everyday before bed or first thing after waking up – and do intense cardio for 5-10 minutes a day to push blood to the extremities of the body. But generally following the above regime as much as possible will give you great results – its vital that scalp massage is done, especially if you have done a hair transplant.

    hope this helps,

  16. Great article – thank you! What about ponytails – would it help to wear my hair straight or get it cut? I’ve also heard this, but I don’t know how true that is.

  17. Thank you for the advice. I will purchase these items tomorrow. My hair has thinned due to my hyper thyroid. I am taking natural medication that helps regulate my hormones but have not regained the hair I once had. My hair is very long but I have lost the thickness. I hope this helps.

  18. It shouldn’t make a difference – only thing is not to wear something so tight that constricts blood flow.

  19. you need to stop using the SLS based shampoo. Head and shoulders is not advised at all. And stressing only will make it worse, please read the article above as I have literally listed everything known to work.

  20. I am post menapausal and have an under active thyroid treated with thyroxine.I massage my scalp at least three times a day but it seems that even more hair is falling out. Is this to be expected? Will this settle down?

  21. Hi Anne – yes, some increase in shedding is normal as the hair resets its growing and shedding phase. I suggest also avoid any sugars as much as possible during this time to prevent giving any leeway to inflammation. When you finish a shower, pour cold water only on the scalp (top head not back of head because its sensitive) – this too will help inflammation low. But yes, in the beginning you will get extra hair shedding, and may also get small bumps on the head which are signs of detox and the scalp getting used to the massage.

  22. I am trying to regrow my thinning hair. Ordered the Niacin and didn’t mind the flush but after two days got horrendous itchy rash and stopped taking the pill. Also purchased the saw palmetto but the bottle says for men only so I am very confused. Will the itchy rash go away and can women take saw palmetto for hair loss?

  23. Hi Sylvia – thank you for commenting. What dosage of Niacin are you taking? Perhaps start at a lower dose and build up. Some people need to start with 50mg or 100mg and build up, increase the dosage a little after a week. Are you sure it is a rash? because Niacin flush often makes areas that don’t get enough blood circulation seem like rash, as it dilates the vessels to improve the circulation, and over time, unblocks the areas.

    Remember – to have a balanced diet and exercise plan as well. Yes women can take saw palmetto – you can do a cycle of taking it for 1 month, and skipping 1 month.

    Hope this helps – oh and scalp massage is vital as well.

  24. Hi Ami
    Without being consistent at any of your tips in the past but will be trying very hard to now, because like you said it does affect your self esteem and your confidence.
    There are many other sites that claim that you’re beliefs don’t work which is why I am skeptical as well. But your page has given me hope so thank you.
    Some questions.
    How hard should I be massaging the scalp? and where on the scalp. Areas where hair is thinning only or all over? And how fast or slow? Because I have a feeling that it has actually caused hair loss or breakage in the past for me.
    And the fact that you have said that inflammation it’s the very cause of hair thinning why is it by massaging, “which causes inflammation” if done repeatedly like Mark says in the comments is meant to some how make hair grow again. May be my lack of knowledge to this contradiction as to why massaging is good for your hair, but you may be able to explain why this method works so well.

  25. Hi Shane, thank you for your comment – yes its true some say it does not work; but if you search online for anything, there is always two sides arguing, one saying a method works, some saying nothing works in almost any topic. The way around this is be sensible, but be open enough to understand why something might work – most people who claim something not to work (from above), is simply because they never did it for long enough consistently (if at all).

    The scalp massage should be firm enough to gently move the skin a little bit – and should be all over the scalp and even forehead. Yes it can seem to be causing inflammation when done every day for 30 minutes, but this is a sign circulation has increased, and the toxins trapped in those areas are causing the inflammation, but they are being cleaned out because of the massage. And over time, the scalp massage will push out a lot of the toxicity in the scalp, and open up blocked circulation, and allow regrowth of hair as the follicles have new fresh blood supply.

    Some people say scalp massage does not work because blood circulation is already present, otherwise by cutting the skin slightly on the scalp, will still bleed blood – this is a very silly approach and shows lack of understanding of the human body – yes there is still blood in the area – but it is not being circulated, it is stagnant blood, possibly full of hormone toxicity and others; perfect cocktail for inflammation and hair thinning. This is not widely understood, because for people that it works, they move on with their lives and never spend time to explain this online; or sometimes they don’t even know how it works so they don’t even mention it but they know it works.

    But the diet is also important – doing as many things from the list above, regularly (everyday) will surely help you see real results.

  26. Thank you for your comment – yes it works great when combined with the above methods and at least following a sugar free diet with plenty of exercise.

  27. Hey, thank you for this I’ve been suffering for thin hair about 1 year now,then worried to be bald at 20 so i tried to find ways to thicken my hair without using drugs etc etc.. So, starting with my diet is is the first thing i made, then improving my lifestyle and this is the winner tho i tried to jog everyday then drink green tea and the results are fu*ckng amazing! Thank you for this Ali,may God bless you brother. 🙂

  28. Thank you for your comment Jake – I am grateful that you have dedicated yourself to a better lifestyle from this post. It is the hardest to show that people have the power within themselves to create these changes. Thank you and keep it up!

  29. You don’t need to lower DHT as inflammation and lack of blood circulation is the cause of hair thinning – so if you go jogging, it will improve your body circulation system and keep hormones balanced (so yes it will balance DHT hormone too).

  30. Looking at my scalp, it is so shiny it could pass for a mirror. Is this the plaque that you mentioned that has hardened and resembles an ice rink, can this sebum / plaque barrier be brokened down so my scalp can breath and some hair growth could actually occur.


  31. You are the best! You hit the exact points. This is really one of the best article anyone who wants to regrow and stop hair loss should read. From DHT down to inflammatory down to sex, treat the entire body is key to great hair. I have been researching ’bout hair loss and regrowth and found most if not all the points you made from different articles and it seems to you gathered and summarised it.
    Once again you are great. Thanks for all the info you gave for free most people would charge for things that are not even half as good as what you delivered. God bless

  32. Hello!

    Thanks so much for the tips. Wondering if you could provide exact names or links for some of the products that you mentioned? Some are hard to find online. Mainly these below:

    The scalp massager
    Taoist Soap
    The exact B-Vitamin you mentioned (the high end one)
    Immortal’s Oil

    I would love if you could help with this! I am currently one month into minoxidil and would like to switch back to a natural method. I’m happy I found this page.

  33. If you google the names, you will find them – the B vitamin is a B-complex vitamin from Solgar. They produce the best. Megasorb version is better but try both and see what feels right to you. The scalp massager can be found on amazon, i haven’t used any personally so can’t recommend a specific one. Hope this helps.

  34. I think ur doing great work on this… an really value what your doing
    I’d like ur opinion on ginger an garlic tonic for scalp massage an better circulation ….

    Also vitamins such as
    Vitamin c
    Zinc, magnesium b6 mix
    Phytoberry multi
    Omega 3

    All those things should help new growth of hair tissue in hoping
