Getting gorgeous, fuller-looking and bouncy hair can be tough! Whether you primp it, tousle it, or scrunch it – but it just keeps falling flat. Do not worry anymore! Check out these volume-boosting home remedies. These insider secrets will not only blow up a limp mane but will leave you with awesome, long-lasting volume.
1 . Add coconut oil to your hair care regimen
Start with dry or damp hair. Part your hair from any one side, apply some oil, part again about 1/2 inch from that part, and apply more oil, and so on until you’ve coated your whole scalp. Gently massage with your fingertips for 5 to 10 minutes. For extra boost take 1 tablespoon each of coconut oil, olive oil and castor oil and give your hair a nice massage. You can leave the oil on for as little as 30 minutes to overnight. Then wash using a natural shampoo and let your hair air dry. Repeat this every alternate day to get hair that is both thicker and healthier.
2 . Try aloe vera gel
Apply aloe vera gel directly to the scalp and let it stay for one hour. Then shampoo your hair to rinse it out. Regular use of this will definitely reduce hair fall. It provides essential moisture and nutrients to your scalp; thus boosting hair growth.

3 . Prepare green tea hair mask
Mix 2 tablespoons of fresh green tea (strong), 1 tablespoon mustard powder, and 1 egg yolk together until you reach a creamy consistency. If it becomes too thick, add more green tea. Now part hair down the centre and apply the mixture. Cover hair with a shower cap or cling wrap. Leave in for approximately 15 to 25 minutes. Your head will feel slightly warm, as the mustard helps to increase the blood circulation to the scalp. Rinse thoroughly, then shampoo and condition as normal. Use this treatment three to four times per week to create long, thick and luxurious hair.
4 . Use homemade hair spray
Mix 3/4 cup water, 3 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 tablespoons honey, and 2 drops geranium essential oil into a glass spray bottle and shake well. Now spray it on damp hair and let it work it through from the roots to ends. Don’t rinse it out; just style your hair as usual and you will get bouncy and shiny hair.
5 . Apply amla
Mix 1 teaspoon of amla powder with 1 cup water and allow it to rest, at least for a few hours, but preferably overnight. Strain the liquid and apply to wet hair in the shower after shampooing, leave in for approximately 5 minutes before rinsing with cool or tepid water. Regular use of amla provides antioxidants, amino acids and other nutrients which help to slow hair loss and greying as well as increase thickness and texture of your hair.
In addition to these haircare techniques, make sure you nourish your hair by having a diet rich in protein (meat, egg, dairy, lentils (dal), pulses, and beans), good fat (nuts like almonds and walnuts), and fruits and green vegetables that are packed with antioxidants.
