Thinning of hair can be a symptom of hormonal imbalance, malnutrition or stress. Excessive use of hair styling products and application of heat for straightening or curling the hair can damage the hair follicles, leading to thinning of hair. Fortunately, hair thinning can be easily cured and normal hair growth can be restored naturally with the help of home remedies. Massaging the scalp with suitable oil such as coconut, olive or almond oil helps in nourishing the hair follicles and improving blood circulation. Applying a hair mask made with natural ingredients that promote hair growth can also help in treating hair thinning. To boost hair growth eat sufficient amount of protein, vitamin A and iron rich foods.
