A hot oil massage, especially with olive oil, lavender oil or coconut oil is a must to grow thicker hair. Well, this means massaging the scalp with hot oil and applying it thoroughly on the length of hair, wrapping hair in a hot towel for half an hour and then washing them.

Apart from this, regularly oiling your hair with effective oils like aloe Vera oil, rosemary oil, almond oil or one of the above mentioned oils is very useful to improve the density of your hair. Hair mask consisting of egg white and olive oil is also a great idea. You can also apply a mask of mayonnaise once a week to make hair thicker. Home remedy, such as using a mixture of honey and olive oil is the best. This will also help add luster to your locks.
