Looking to add body to your hair? You’re not alone! Keep these 10 tips in mind:
1. Get a Haircut
If you have fine hair, it’ll lay flat. Cutting your hair will add volume and flair. Go for a long bob or a shoulder-length cut as thin hair tends to look weighted down when it’s longer. Here’s some short hair inspo for you.
2. Your Chance to Color
Hair dyes tub out your hair shaft and give them a voluminous look for several weeks. Now’s your turn to get the hair color of your dreams! Adding highlights to your hair will also add body, so experiment with your hair and you won’t be disappointed with the end result.
3. Add Layers or Extensions
If you have thin hair but lots of it, then adding layers will boost them up. Don’t add a lot of layers as they’ll appear chunky. Ask your hairstylist to layer some hair on the sides of your face for an edgier look to frame out your face.
So many people are now opting for permanent extensions or clip-ons to add volume. Make sure you go to an experienced hair stylist for extensions and be wary that they can potentially damage your hair.
4. Invest in Good Shampoos
Don’t buy creamy, thick shampoos as they’re formulated for coarse, burly manes. Go for the best shampoos for fine hair and choose wisely.
5. Shampoo and Condition the Right Way
Apply shampoo to your scalp, thoroughly massage, and rinse. Don’t apply conditioner to your scalp as it can be the reason for a greasy scalp. Apply to the roots or remaining two-thirds of your hair. Applying conditioner to a scalp with fine hair will only weigh it down more.
6. Blot and Air Dry
Don’t rub your hair with the towel, instead let it air dry for more volume.
7. Rinse with Apple Cider Vinegar
If you style your hair a lot or use many hair products then it is likely that your hair is suffering from product build-up. Wash your hair with apple cider vinegar every once in a while, to protect them from damage.
8. Use a Sea Salt Hairspray
To bring out voluminous beachy waves, spritz your hair with Davines sea salt spray and scrunch your hair from the bottom. Trust and believe, you will stun everyone in your wake with this effortless look.
9. Get rolling
Roll your hair with old fashioned rollers or use curlers to form super cute ringlets. Curls never go out of style. Take a look at these easy curly hairstyles.
10. Hair Mousse
Modern formulas of hair mousse will puff up your hair without stiffening it, so don’t shy away from using them while styling your hair. Use a golf-ball sized amount on your palm, work it from the ends till the middle of your hair. Your hair will be plump and soft.
