If you want hair gain now, there are plenty of ways to stimulate your hair follicles and to boost hair volume.
Regrow your Hair Naturally
What causes hair loss?
Hair fall and breakage can happen for all sorts of reasons, with hormonal changes (post-pregnancy and menopause in particular), long-term stress, nutritional deficiencies, and over-processing being some of the more common causes. Hair fall tends to be more common during the winter months. The cold, dry air outdoors, coupled with central heating and lack of humidity can cause the skin, scalp, and hair to become dehydrated and brittle which can trigger breakage and hair fall. With proper care and a balanced diet, we can control hair thinning, breakage, and seasonal hair loss.
Can you eat your way to healthier hair?
Invest in Hair Gain Now – a hair-enhancing supplement
There are a multitude of nutritional supplements designed to support healthy hair growth. If you think your diet may be lacking in the key vitamins and minerals, it may be worth investing in specially formulated hair supplements, especially if you have been under the weather or suffer from long-term stress. For an intensive hair boost, Hair Gain is a vegan-friendly, gluten-free supplement that has been scientifically formulated to promote visibly thicker, fuller, and stronger hair. This unique edible ‘haircare’ range contains organic pea shoot extract, clinically proven to reduce hair loss and support stronger hair.
Deep condition with a hair mask
Regular conditioning is vital to replenish hydrate the scalp and to prevent seasonal hair fall. To keep hair and scalp in tip-top condition and to ensure both are well-nourished, apply a weekly intensive hair mask. Masks are a welcome hair boost during the winter months, helping to combat the effects of heating products and cold winter winds. Look for masks that contain natural botanical oils including avocado, sunflower and Rahua oils, and shea butter, all of which are intensively moisturising.
One of my favourite hair treats is Rahua’s Omega 9 Hair Mask. It boosts elasticity and deeply hydrates the hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and tangle-free. A blend of nourishing Rahua oil and pure, plant-based ingredients, it is paraben and sulfate-free, sustainably-sourced, vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. And I can confirm that it really works!

8 Top Tips to reduce hair fall and to strengthen fine, fragile hair
1. Make time for self-care
Making time for yourself can help you to live a balanced lifestyle and reduce your stress levels. Have a long, hot bath with all the trimmings – scented candle, aromatherapy oil, and relaxing music – or just take some time out to watch an upbeat or uplifting film snuggled up on the sofa. The less stressed you are, the better your hair will regrow naturally.
2. Improve your diet
Try introducing more fruit and veg plus probiotics to improve gut health is a good idea. These are key to optimising your nutrient intake and absorption. Find more plant-based meal ideas here.
3. Up your levels of hair-boosting minerals
Minerals such as Zinc, Iron, Selenium and Silica are all vital for healthy hair.
4. Get as much quality sleep as possible
A good night’s sleep reduces levels of the stress hormone, cortisol, which can impact our general health and wellbeing. Find my top 10 tips for a natural night’s sleep here.
5. Move your body!
Regular exercise is good for the heart, good for the head – and good for the hair! But don’t overdo it. Over-exercising can be counterproductive, especially if you struggle with exhaustion or have been unwell. Yoga Download is a great option so is walking, or if you prefer fitness classes I love Beachbody workouts.
6. Minimise toxic exposure
Reduce your intake of over-processed and pre-packaged foods and swap to natural, non-toxic products around your home to minimise exposure to harmful chemicals. Find my favourite non-toxic cleaning products here.
7. Carve out at least 15 minutes a day of quiet time.
Introduce some daily meditation (all forms are beneficial), deep belly breathing, yoga, or mindfulness practice. As well as reducing your stress levels it will increase levels of feel-good endorphins, hormones that make us feel blissed out. Read a Beginners Guide to meditation here.8.
