Do you dream of beautiful hairstyle, but your hair is too thin and fragile? Do not rush to solve this problem with a perm. First of all, it is harmful, and second of all, it does not suit everyone. There are more simple and effective ways to get voluminous hair.
According to the statistics, about 90% of women all over the world complain that their hair lacks volume. Stylists and hairdressers are sure there is a way out. Slightly more attention to your look, modern and helpful care remedies, carefully selected combs and hair dryers and you will get plenty of compliments from people around you.
So, what are these 7 effective ways for getting thicker hair?
1. REGULAR SHAMPOOS
Thin and fragile hair needs more frequent and thorough washing. Therefore, use cosmetics that are meant for this type of hair.
You can add visual volume to your hair using shampoos and other hair care products with a “volume” mark on it. All cosmetic products within this mark contain special ingredients that thicken the hair. Regular shampoos are applied shampoos containing silicone. This ingredient encloses each individual hair along the entire length, i.e. covering it with a film. Such types of shampoos make hair shiny, silky and voluminous. But…not for a long time. The first day you wash your hair, it looks like your hair is finally thicker and more beautiful. Especially, women with fine hair notice it visually more often. But, within only a day, dust starts to accumulate on the silicone film, the hair becomes dirty, and the next day you already want to wash it again. And, so it repeats every day.
2. PROFESSIONAL SHAMPOOS
This group of shampoos contain hair remedies such as keratin and protein, i.e. means our hair is made of. As a rule, those are more expensive and named as professional ones. They do not contain cheap active ingredients and synthetic polymers. They are silicone-free. Even though they will not add an instant shine, shape, and volume to your hair, but they nourish it from roots to ends. The result will be visually seen if you mix professional shampoos with a conditioner that adds volume. After applying these remedies, your hair will be easily combed and styled.
3. MOUSSES AND GELS
For whatever reasons, if you are used to the shampoos that are not subject to thicken your hair, but you still want to have a voluminous hairstyle, then go ahead and apply the main remedy for adding the volume – styling mousse.
After taking the shower, apply a bit of mousse to the roots of the washed hair. Rub your palms and distribute the mousse evenly along the entire length of the hair – from the roots to the ends. Then, when using a hairdryer, remember to tousle hair as it makes your hair look more voluminous. For styling short hair, use mousses that do not contain alcohol.
The other option is an extra-strong fixation gel. It’s very easy to use: warm it up in your hands, apply to the dry, washed hair, and style it.
4. RIGHT HAIRCUTS
- THIN HAIR
The foundation of thick hair is a good hairstyle. It’s best to create a haircut of a medium length with torn lines and a bang. You should cut it on average once in every 4-6 weeks. Bob haircut also makes your hair look thicker visually. Moreover, these kind of hairstyles are very trendy now.
- LONG HAIR
The longer the hair is, the thinner it looks. If you prefer short haircuts, remember that the optimal length for them is between your chin and earlobe. But don’t cut it extremely short, otherwise, the hairstyle will not look voluminous.
- SHORT HAIR
It’s best to cut it in layers since multi-layers visually add thickness to your hair.
6. HAIR EXTENSIONS
To significantly add instant length and volume use hair extensions, but be cautious with the selection. If you want them to look natural on your head, then you should definitely invest in Remy human hair extensions. Remy is the highest grade of human hair, meaning that cuticles are intact, tangle-free with minimum shedding. They are selected by the length, thickness, color, and structure. There are also different types of hair extensions such as tape-in, clip-in, halo and etc. You should do a bit of research to decide which one fits your needs. On our side, we recommend going for a clip-in method as these ones have the safest application and most flexible when it comes to wearing. The fact is, if you choose high-quality clip-in hair extensions, they will last you at least 6 months, depending on how you take care of them. If you provide a good care, they will even last you over a year. Moreover, they can be dyed, curled and straightened, meaning you treat them exactly the same way as you own hair.
7. HIGHLIGHTS & LOWLIGHTS
The modern method of highlights and lowlights give a natural look as well as visually creates a volume. Choose 2, 3 or even 4 shades of hair color. The more colors, the more interesting and effective result is.
This kind of hair dying procedure should not be done at home. This technique is complicated and requires the help of a professional, your stylist. Therefore, don’t even try doing it yourself as the disappointment will cost you even more expensive.
8. IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR HAIRSTYLE
- FROM ROOTS TO THE ENDS
In order for a hairstyle to look thicker, when using a hairdryer, use the warm, not hot air. Keep it 6 inches (15 cm) away from your hair, otherwise, you will just overdry the hair and it will look flat and loose the natural shine. As for the hair roots, they can be dried with the hot air.
- BRUSH ATTACHED TO THE HAIRDRYER
Most of the time it comes in the package when buying a hairdryer, and it is used to create waves that add extra volume to your hair.
