Thin hair, thick hair, curly hair, straight hair. It seems as if every type of hair comes with its share of challenges and pitfalls. Thin hair can be especially problematic. Beyond having hair that looks lifeless, people with thin hair also have to deal with flyaways, excess oil build up and more.
Having thin hair can be challenging, but there are things you can do to your hair to make it look fuller. Here are a few suggestions.
Get a Style that Works for You
The way you cut and style your hair can work wonders in helping you achieve a thick hair look. Experts recommend a shoulder length cut as this creates a look of fullness. If you have curly hair, add layers to encourage the curls to become more voluminous. If you have straight hair, skip the layers as this can make hair look stringy.
Highlights not only give your hair a contrast that make it look fuller, it also roughs up the cuticle giving it the ability to hold a voluminous style for longer. If you’re concerned about damage, opt for a plant based product.
Backcomb Hair at the Scalp
Backcombing your hair will help you get more height. Start by lifting hair into small sections and backcombing each section two or three times with a fine tooth plastic comb. Lightly mist hair with Marrakesh Finite Hairspray. Then gently comb down hair to smooth it out.
Extensions are not only great for adding length, they can add volume too. To ensure your extensions look as natural as possible, take them to your hairstylist so he or she can help you trim them and match them to the color of your hair.
Use the Right Hair Care Products
There are many hair care products that are recommended for making thin, fine hair look fuller. Those with fine hair should take care to find products specifically designed to give hair volume as other types of products can weigh hair down making it look even thinner.
