Follow a few of these tips and you will have a full, exciting head of hair that's easier to work with and full of life!
Change Your Parting
Changing your hair's parting is a simple, quick and effective way to give it some more volume for a day or two.
Get the Right Haircut
The right haircut makes all the difference when it comes to volume. Heavily layered styles and razor cuts are both good for getting volume out of thin hair. Done right your hair will look much thicker.
High volume hairstyles include those with curls and waves. Even bob cuts can add extra volume - your hair will be lighter and freer to move around without the extra weight.
Teasing and Backcombing
Not great for everyday as teasing can damage your hair, but for special occasions backcombing can lift your hair and will give it a lot of life. Tease some of the hair around the crown of your head for extra lift.
Washing your hair
Washing it every day is OK for your hair as long as you are using the right shampoo for your hair type. Some shampoos can be to heavy for fine hair and sometimes cause a build up of residue on the hair making it heavy and weighing it down (making it lank and lifeless). The use of dry shampoos on days when your dont want to wash it will help give your hair more volume too, as well as good volumizing lotions before you dry your hair and a little hairspray when dry.
Sleep With Damp Hair
A bit of a strange one, but sleeping with damp hair can create plenty of volume in the morning. You'll need to work a little harder to get it under control when you wake up, but once you have you'll look better than ever before.
Get more volume from your hair with the right style, the right products and a little bit of effort. It's not hard to improve the look of dull, flat hair and you'll know it's worth it when you're turning heads everywhere you go!
