natural ingredients for men's thinning hair

How To Fix Thinning Hair

1 in 5 men experience hair loss by age 20 and the bad news is, it gets worse.

30% of men experience hair loss by their 30s, and by 50, 85% of us will be going thin up top.

Some guys embrace this.

After all, there's nothing wrong with the "Bruce Willis" look. But what if you don't want to? 

You could go for a comb over... but that's never looked good. 

There is good news. There are natural ingredients men have been using for 1000s of years to stimulate hair growth.

In this blog, I'll cover 6 of the most effective natural ingredients for men with thinning hair. 


Quandong is a native peach fruit found in the central desert of Australia. High in protein and Vitamin C - it has been used for thousands of years. It has now been scientifically discovered that the Quandong seeds are extremely high in oil containing essential fatty acids.

How Does Quandong Help Thinning Hair? 

The healthier your hair and scalp are the more likely new hair will grow. The quality protein found in Quandong helps to nourish your hair and scalp.

Saw Palmetto

Saw palmetto — a botanical derived from the berries of a Serenoa repens (or saw palmetto) palm tree — is grown in the southern part of the U.S. and has been used by Native Americans medicinally for years. Recently, saw palmetto has been used as a hair growth boost. 

It was found that taken orally, Saw Palmetto can reduce enlarged prostates, and as a positive side effect stimulates hair growth.

How Does Saw Palmetto Help Thinning Hair? 

Saw palmetto helps to block 5-alpha-reductase, an enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. DHT is the molecule responsible for hair loss and also is involved in the enlargement of the prostate.

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice

Aloe vera juice is a thick liquid made from the aloe vera plant leaf. It's commonly known to treat sunburns. Others use this as an elixir to help hydration, liver problems and constipation.  

How Does Aloe Very Leaf Juice Help Thinning Hair? 

Aloe Vera Leaf Juice contains proteolytic enzymes that repair dead skin cells on your scalp and create the ideal environment for hair growth. It's also rich in nutrients and Vitamins A and 

Sage Extract

Sage contains natural oils like camphor, linalool, bornyl acetate and borneol which stimulate hair growth and strengthen hair roots. Sage also contains Vitamin K which increases blood circulation improves oxygen delivery to your hair follicles.

How Does Sage Extract Help Thinning Hair? 

Sage extract helps to increase the blood circulation in your scalp which helps to heal and promote hair growth.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is high in Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Zinc, Iron and essential fatty acids which improve scalp health by unclogging hair follicles, helping your hair grow thicker and faster.

Kakadu Plum

This "superfruit" is found in Australia and contains 3000mg of Vitamin C per 100g of fruit, giving it the highest amount of Vitamin C found in any food. Vitamin C is used by your body to produce collagen - an important part of hair structure and it helps your body absorb iron (the lack of which can cause hair loss and stop hair growing past a certain length).

Vitamin C deficiency can cause dry, brittle hair and hair loss because it can lead to Anemia - a condition in which you lack enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to your body's tissues.

Your body can't produce Vitamin C on its own, nor can it store it. This means you need to absorb Vitamin C daily - so you can see why Kakadu Plum is regarded so highly.

This best way to eat Kakadu plums is fresh, fully ripe and fallen from the tree 
– except they taste terribly bitter.


So there you have it. Now your only challenge here is finding these ingredients in the first place (especially Australian Kakadu Plum).

My advice is to check your local health food shops because supermarkets will only stock the most commonly bought items, and let's face it, there's not a lot of call for Kakadu Plum. 

There is a downside to all this. Buying these items individually can be expensive.

And if you're looking to thicken your hair naturally, you also need to ensure you're taking the right amount of each ingredient for the best results.
