10 Ways To Add Volume & Body To Fine Hair

Want the appearance of fuller and thicker hair? Most of us want luscious locks but unfortunately, hair can thin over time due to numerous reasons. Here are a few tips to help you achieve thicker and more luscious looking hair.

1. Use A Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is a product used to keep hair smelling fresh and minimize oiliness between shampoos. It can also be used to create the illusion of thicker hair because the product coats the hair shaft creating more volume. Concentrate the product at your roots and massage it into your hair for a fuller look.

2. Create Volume With Waves

One way to create the illusion of more volume is by creating loose waves. Use a 2″ barrel curling iron and wrap large sections of hair around the iron and away from your face. Once the curls have set, run your fingers through your hair to loosen them up. Flip your hair over and apply texturizing spray throughout for instant volume.

3. Load Up On Iron

A deficiency in iron can be a cause of thinning hair in many women. Studies show that women are most at risk for anemia, also known as iron deficiency. A lack of iron means that you won’t have enough hemoglobin to carry oxygen to your cells resulting in more fragile and thinner hair. A blood test at the doctor’s office can determine your iron levels. The solution is as easy as taking an iron supplement daily or altering your diet by adding iron rich foods to your meals such a steak, kale, and spinach.

4. Get More Protein

Protein is a building block of hair and essential for hair growth. The protein that builds hair is called keratin. Consume foods that are high in protein such as chicken, steak, beans and eggs. For an extra boost, try drinking a protein shake.

5. Massage Your Scalp

Massaging your scalp is a relaxing way to increase blood circulation which is essential for hair growth. Rub a few drops of argan oil onto your fingertips and gently massage your scalp. The best time to give yourself a scalp oil massage is right before you shampoo because you can rinse it out when you’re finished.

6. Get Long Layers

A blunt cut gives the appearance of hair that is sleeker and flatter. Ask for a cut with long layers. Your stylist may also be able to create more texture by using specialized cutting techniques. Layers should be placed throughout your hair for best results.

7. Pick A Ceramic Blow Dryer

Ionic blow dryers are great for creating shine but they can actually make fine hair look even flatter by smoothing the hair’s cuticle. If you have to have an ionic dryer, pick one that gives you the option of turning the ionic setting off. Ceramic dryers don’t excessively smooth the hair and are more suitable for fine hair.

8. Dry The Roots First

Aim the blow dryer directly at your roots before moving on to the rest of your hair. Drying the roots first will create more texture and give the illusion of thicker hair. You can also flip your hair upside down while blow drying in order to create more volume. It’s important to keep blow drying until your hair is completely dry in order to achieve the most volume.

9. Get Balayage Highlights

Highlights can be used to create a multi-dimensional look and give the appearance of more volume. With the balayage technique, your stylist will apply color freehand without using foils for a more natural appearance.

10. Use Volumizing Hair Products

Volumizing hair products include mousse, lotions, and gels which work by coating your hair for a thicker look. You’ll want to concentrate these products on your roots for best results. Applying an excessive amount of product along the entire shaft of your hair won’t bring the best results because it will weigh your hair down.
