You should always aim to treat thinning hair and hair loss whenever possible. But while your hair is recovering and regrowing, there are different styles you can try to hide thinning hair. In this article, we’ll highlight some hacks you can use to make your hair look more voluminous and which products and tools that’ll help you achieve this look.
The first place that you’ll want to start is in the shower or bath. When you wash your hair, you should use a thickening shampoo and conditioner. It can help add body and bounce, so you are already starting out with fuller-looking hair. If you are looking for more volume, we highly recommend our Scalp Stimulating Shampoo followed by our Volumizing Keratin Conditioner. The shampoo will not only help clean your hair thoroughly, but also stimulate the hair follicles which can help them to grow faster. It will help get rid of buildup that can make your hair look dull and flat. The conditioner works to make your hair silky smooth while increasing volume in your hair. It will not weigh down your hair either! Remember, only condition the ends of your hair for the best results.
Next, you’ll need a few products and tools to help you achieve the perfect look after you wash your hair. First, you should determine what type of hair style you’re looking for. Do you want straighter hair with body and volume? Do you want curls or waves? Keep in mind, you’ll also want to decide if you are letting your hair air dry or using a blow dryer. It all depends on how much time you have to style your hair. Letting it air dry is healthier for your hair, but sometimes we just don’t have the time to let it dry on its own!
One of the products we recommend using after a shower is a mousse. It is a great way to add volume to your hair. Use an egg-size amount on damp hair, working it through your hair evenly. Mousse works well for any style and works well if you decide to air dry it or blow dry it. Blow drying your hair can help increase volume as well, especially if you blow dry it while your head is upside down. This creates more fullness. Keranique offers a Thickening & Texturizing Mousse instantly adds body while keeping your hair soft and smooth to the touch. It can also help detangle your hair, making it easier to brush through, and protects your hair against heat from the blow dryer, curling iron, or straightener.
If you are hoping to achieve a fuller hair style in the morning when you don’t have much time, you can sleep in an updo! First, twist your hair into small sections and pin it up before you go to sleep. Typically, your hair will flatten out during the night, so this helps to maintain volume. This works really well after you’ve styled your hair and want it to last several days too. You can also use dry shampoo to give your hair a boost of volume in the morning when you’re running late.
There are several hair styles you can try that can fake a fuller look as well – like this ponytail trick! First, put your hair into a high ponytail. Split it in half from the top to the bottom and clip a tiny clip in the middle of the bottom part to add volume. Then you can just tease your hair a bit to hide the clip. If you don’t want to wear a ponytail, simply teasing your roots can help add more volume to any hair style. You may need a fine-toothed comb or teasing brush. Hold a small section of your hair up and push the hair underneath towards your head. Hairspray will help the teased hair stay in place and volumizing hair spray can add even more volume and fullness. If you try a half up, half down hair style, teased hair looks really good in this hair style. You can add in some sparkly clips for a festive touch as well.
Hair extensions or clip-in hair pieces are also a great way to add volume. This is cool television trick that is used for a more voluminous look. You can purchase clip-in pieces from a beauty supply store that matches your hair color, or you can ask your hair stylist for more natural-looking extensions. They can also help you achieve your hair goals, whether you want fuller hair or longer locks. You can even get clip-on bangs to test out a new look before you decide to really go for it!
Velcro rollers may seem like a thing of the past, but they still work really well! They can add an extra lift to your hair easily. After you blow dry your hair, section off pieces and add in Velcro curlers. Once you add in all of the curlers, blow dry your hair again with the curlers in on a cool setting. This helps to set the style. You can finish with our Lift & Repair Treatment Spray, which protects your hair and help repair it as it gives an extra lift of volume. It also adds some beautiful shine to your hair.
If you need a boost of volume on the go, you can use dry shampoo in a pinch. Not only will it help cleanse your hair when you can’t wash it, but it can also give it a volumizing boost. Look for dry shampoos that boast volume or lift.
When you are at the hair salon, ask your hair stylist for color and a cut that can help increase the volume in your hair. More than likely, they can add highlights, layers, or give you a specific cut that will help your hair look more voluminous. They can also recommend products or hair styles that will help your specific hair type to look fuller. They may also recommend a volumizing treatment at the salon that can give you long-lasting results. Just remember, you’re not in this alone. If you have questions, chances are others have asked the same questions as well. Hopefully, your stylist will have a solution.
