There are styling tricks that will help you pull off an astonishing hairdo without spending a lot. In fact, some of these ways are natural and easy to do. Here are some ways on how you can put life back into your locks and make it look thicker.
Using Shampoo and Conditioner the Right Way
People use shampoo and conditioner every day yet not really using it as directed. Well, you should only use shampoo and the root and use a conditioner on the middle and ends of your hair.
Do not put shampoo and conditioner from roots to tips. Frequently conditioning the scalp could lead to greasy roots that would look limp and less voluminous.
It’s not an old school style to backcomb. While this is the styling fad in the ’80s, you can still sport this look this year.
For those who want to add more volume to their hair, this is a must-try trick. This is the no-brainer way to pump up more volume to your hair.
You need a good brush to make that perfect backcomb. It should have a pintail handle and boar bristle. Divide your hair into smaller sections right from the crown.
Next, comb your hair at the sections before you backcomb so that you avoid matting your hair.
Once combed, push your hair back in a fluid motion. Put on hairspray to hold that style. To make it sleek, flip and carefully smoothen your hair with your hand to avoid the damp look.
Blow-drying Your Hair
This will give you an instant volume in just a few minutes. Blow-dry your hair to at least 85% and then tied your hair up to a bun at the topmost part of your head.
Leave it at that for about 15 minutes then you can take it down to achieve a fuller and more voluminous hair. You can even leave it that way for a longer time to achieve crazy volume.
If you have problems with thinning hair, then the best way to add volume is layer it up. Adding light layers can add more shape and volume rather than having your cut in one length, which could weigh it down.
Dyeing Your Hair
The right shade for your hair can actually add more volume and make your hair look thicker. This works by making hair loss less obvious. You can try highlights which require minimal upkeep yet very effective for adding volume and more spunk to your locks.
Adding Hair Extensions
You can also add hair extensions, wigs, or weaves to create a fuller appearance of your hair. These add-ons are more natural-looking now because it’s made of real human hair or a mix of synthetic fibre and human hair.
There are so many hacks and tricks to adding volume to your hair. However, the basics of taking care of your hair using natural or organic hair products and adding style like backcombing or layering can really emphasize volume and make hair thinning less visible.
