7 tips and tricks for adding volume to your hair

by Marie-Sarah Published on December 1, 2015

Who doesn’t envy women lucky enough to have thick, full hair? If you do and want to add volume to the fine strands you were born with, consider these 7 tips and tricks!

Use the right shampoo

Shampoos sold in pharmacies often contain ingredients like collagen that weigh hair down. With regular use, small particles accumulate on each strand, flattening your hair. Ask hairdresser which shampoo works best on fine hair.

Curl your hair

If you wash your hair before bed, roll it in sections with good old-fashioned curlers. When you take them out in the morning, you will have thicker, fuller locks!

Use the right blow drying technique

This is an oldie but a goodie: blow dry your hair with your head down and dry the roots first. This gravity-defying position will set them this way, resulting in thicker, fuller hair.

Use dry shampoo

If your hair is fine, you probably suffer from “flat head” within a few days of washing your hair. Not a good look! Fortunately, dry shampoo can help: section by section, vaporize the product from the roots to the middle while holding the tips. Then blow dry your hair on the cool setting with your head down to set your hair. When you flip your head back up, your hair will instantly feel and look thicker.

Use volumizing mousse

Specifically designed to add volume and body to fine hair, volumizing mousse can provide good results, so why not give it a try? This one by Living Proof is available through Sephora and has great reviews. Users say just a little works wonders.

Tease your hair

Your mother probably used this technique, and for good reason. There’s nothing like a little teasing to plump flat hair. Using a fine comb, tease small sections from the middle to the roots, set them with hairspray, and voila! You instantly have fuller hair!

Get the right haircut

We all know that shorter hair naturally has more body than very long hair, which tends to look flatter because of the drag caused by gravity. So if you really want thicker locks, go see your hairdresser, who will no doubt be happy to give you a volumizing cut!
