Written by Urvi DalalOct 07, 2019
With age, your hair loses some of its thickness and volume, but you don't need to succumb to the tyranny of this cold, hard fact of follicular life. There are many hacks, haircuts, products, tips, and tricks that can help you boost the fullness and thickness of your hair.
Your hair will look naturally voluminous and lively if you follow any of these expert suggestions that best fit your hair type, style, or situation.
Get yourself a bob
We usually tend to equate fullness of the hair with its length, but shorter cuts such as bobs and lobs make your hair look a lot thicker and more voluminous. These lengths provide a lot of volume and body as they sit perfectly around the collarbone and shoulder area. Plus, the added bonus is that as the hair grows, it naturally pushes the hair up for more fullness and volume.
Add some layers
If going short with your hair is not really your thing, then here’s something you are going to love. An easy way to add volume without losing the length is cutting your hair in layers. Ask your stylist to cut only a few layers as this will add more movement and make your locks appear thicker.
Style them in soft waves
Fine haired girls, here’s a tip you want to pay close attention to. Adding simple, soft waves to your tresses can add lots of body creating an illusion of more volume. Loose waves are easily created with a curling iron or by sleeping with your hair fastened in loose braids, which you can shake out in the morning and further texturise with a sea salt spray.
Blow dry upside down
For some easy additional volume, simply bend over and blow dry your hair upside down. Don’t use a brush when using this technique, just your fingers! Instantly voluminous, thicker looking locks at your fingertips!
Make dry shampoo your BFF
In recent years, dry shampoo has become one of the most popular styling products on the market. If you have fine, silky hair that never seems to have enough volume, tip your head upside down and spritz some dry shampoo at the roots. Flip your head back and there you have it! You'll notice a whole lot of volume!
