What’s your biggest hair concern? For many people, it’s a lack of volume. If you have fine hair it can be difficult to achieve those voluminous looks you covet from the catwalk, but not impossible. There are some great secrets to boosting volume in fine hair that can give it a thicker and more weighted appearance. Check out the tips below and enjoy creating beautiful hair looks.
Use volumizing shampoo and conditioner
Using the right shampoo and conditioner can help to give your hair the best chance of volume. Fine hair can be weighed down by many formulas, but a volumizing shampoo is designed to thicken strands without the weight. If you suffer from fine hair plus another concern such as dry ends, switch up your products between washes or choose one shampoo that tackles one problem followed by a conditioner to treat your fine hair. Be careful not to wash your hair too often if you want to make your hair color last, you can always touch up with dry shampoo if you need to.
Apply a blow-drying lotion
Blow dry lotions are very underrated and are a professional secret for achieving that salon-style blow dry look. The best blow dry lotions will give your fine hair volume and that bouncy salon look, and hold the style that you create. Blow dry lotions will also help to protect your hair from heat damage – something that is essential when it comes to fine hair.
Up your blow dry game
The way you blow dry your hair could make all the difference to how it appears. You can create volume by blow drying your hair upside down and using the diffuser to create a bit of texture. When you flip your hair back up, part it to the side to create additional volume. Learning to blow dry fine hair takes practice, but once you master it – you’ll feel much more confident in creating styles that are full of volume.
Heated or Velcro rollers are ideal for creating volume in fine hair, helping to create lift or curls that will hold for hours. Rollers are easy to put in and you can leave them to work their magic while you carry on with other things such as your makeup or nails. When you take them out, you’ll have incredibly bouncy hair that will look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
Add some hair extensions
Want to know the A-list secret to thicker hair? Hair extensions. Applying hair extensions can instantly transform your look, and if you choose tape-in extensions there won’t be any risk of seeing them – ideal for fine hair that often give away wefts! If you choose natural hair you can style it however you want – it’s a great way to mix up your style and create different looks.
Having fine hair doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy creating beautiful hairstyles. Use the tips above to give your hair a boost for perfect styles every time you walk out the door.
