Do you feel like your hair used to be thick, full, and voluminous but now it’s on the thinner side and you can’t seem to bounce it back to what it used to be? If you feel that way, know you are not alone! Many men and women struggle with the aftermath of thinning hair. Some find hairstyles that try to mask the thinning while others try various remedies, hoping for a miracle. We’ve compiled some tips and tricks below that will help you get your hair looking and full as it once was.
Be picky with your hair products.
When choosing a shampoo and conditioner, make sure to choose one that is volumizing. We offer a Volume Shampoo and Volume Conditioner, as well as an Amplifying Foam that boosts the volume of your hair right before your eyes. The right products can make all the difference.
Style your hair for max fullness.
When you dry your hair, are you flipped over so that the air is blowing the roots upward or are you blowing them down, slicking them to your scalp? Drying your hair will help lift the roots, creating more volume. Once hair is dried, tease your hair to add even more volume, especially at the crown. Pay special attention to what styling tools you use as well. Ceramic tools provide a lot of volume while leaving you with smooth, frizz-free results.
Keep it short.
One would think that the longer the hair is, the fuller it appears but actually the opposite is true. If your hair is on the thin side, keep your haircut short or medium in length. The longer thin hair is, the stringier it tends to look. The weight pulls the hair down and amplifies the thinning of the hair since it’s so long.
Highlights will be your savior.
Highlights are a must-have for those of us with thin hair. Highlights allow the eye to bounce around, taking in the various colors and dimensions of your hair. When the eye perceives these various “layers,” it’s tricked into thinking your hair is nice and full, versus flat and thin. Sometimes highlights can take your salon bill to new heights, but believe us when we say they are worth it!
Dry shampoo is your friend.
Instead of simply spritzing your day-old locks, try massaging your scalp after you’ve applied the dry shampoo. This little scalp massage with create volume that lasts all day long!
