5 ways to add long-lasting volume to thin hair
Hair that lacks natural volume tends to lay flat on your head without any bounce or vitality. No matter what the texture, sporting limp locks is no fun. You can’t be emptying your can of hairspray to deal with the flatness either. Thankfully, there are a few tips that can add long-lasting volume to flat hair. Check ‘em out!

01. Blow-dry your hair upside down

05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

One of the main reasons why your hair tends to lay flat is because the hair follicles have settled comfortably in one position. Shake them up by blow-drying your hair upside down. This process lifts your hair (instantly faking volume) and also delivers fresh blood to your scalp.


02. Tease some finger curls in

05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

More than just a flirting technique, teasing natural curls in your hair with fingers helps add volume. Section your mane into parts and use your fingers to create soft waves and curls in them. Finish it off by adding some hairspray at the end.

Another way of getting natural-looking waves is by braiding your damp and letting them air-dry. You can even sleep in a protective braid hairstyle to get effortless waves in the morning.


03. Stop washing your hair every day

05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

You might be under the impression that flat hair is caused by a greasy scalp and can be made voluminous by washing it daily. But, regardless of what your shampoo tells you, washing your hair every day can strip it of its natural oils and make it more prone to limpness. Skip shampooing daily and freshen greasy hair with the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo instead.


04. Invest in a volumising cream

05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

A sure-shot way to breathe some life into limp hair is to add a volumising cream in your hair care routine. Go for a thick formula like the TIGI Bed Head Small Talk that energises your flat hair, giving it a full body and a stronghold. It also keeps frizz to a minimum by nourishing and moisturising your hair at the same time.


05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

05. Pay attention to your hairbrush

Believe it or not, the wrong hairbrush can do a lot of damage to your hair follicles. The most hair-friendly brushes come with natural boar or flexible nylon bristles. They minimise tugging and breakage. Brushes with cushion bases have also been known to stimulate your scalp and add volume to the roots.
