Indian Home Remedies for Thick Hair

This is a Guest post written by Chetana from StyleCraze! It's an amazing Beauty Network in India!

Indians attribute a lot of importance to hair and are in general known to possess thick, strong and beautiful hair.

Indians prefer to use natural home remedies to acquire thick and strong hair. The power of ancient Indian Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is tapped to enhance and maintain the natural beauty of Indian hair.
Oiling forms a significant part of the Indian hair care routine. It is believed that the secret to the long, black, shiny tresses that Indian women possess is through regular application of oil to the hair. To acquire and retain thick luscious healthy hair, Indians, especially women oil their hair regularly.

  1. Coconut oil is the most commonly used hair oil in India, which is a storehouse of goodness for the hair. It replenishes dry and damaged hair, nourishes the scalp and hair with essential nutrients, stimulates blood circulation in the scalp area and thus aids hair growth. Hence it’s a preferred choice and a household name in India for getting thick and long hair.

  1. Amla oil, sourced from the fruit of the Indian gooseberry (Emblica officinalis, a tree native to India) is used by many Indian women to acquire strong and healthy hair. The Amla is known to be a miracle fruit, holding a number of skin and hair benefits.
An excellent source of Vitamin C, Amla solves several hair woes and is useful in maintaining the natural Indian hair color. It encourages thick hair growth, prevents hair loss and premature graying of the hair.
Amla powder is often mixed with other herbal powders such as henna (Lawsonia inermis) and shikakai (Acacia concinna) and this paste is applied to the hair to improve its growth and to provide essential nourishment.

  1. Shikakai is used by many Indians as a natural hair cleanser for washing the hair. It is a wonderful way to steer clear of sulfate-containing shampoos while gently cleansing the scalp of excess oil and accumulated dirt; it detangles the hair, naturally conditions it, promotes hair growth, and makes hair bouncy, strong and silky.

  1. Reetha (Soap Nut) is another commonly used ingredient in India for shampooing as it is a natural surfactant; it gently cleanses excess oils from the hair, possesses antimicrobial properties and brings a healthy shine and bounce to the hair.

  1. Fenugreek, better known as Methi in India is a commonly used herb that is an excellent remedy used by Indians for thick and strong hair. Containing proteins and nicotinic acid, a hair tonic prepared from soaking fenugreek seeds in hot water provides essential nourishment to the hair; acts as a natural conditioner and prevents hair loss.

  1. Indians also use Ayurvedic hair oils like Bhringraj Oil derived from the plant ‘Eclipta Alba’. Amla Bhringraj oil is used by many Indians to naturally blacken the hair and get thick, strong hair.
