Who doesn’t wish to have naturally thick and luscious locks? However, factors such as age, stress and using harsh hair products come in the way of voluminous and bouncy mane.
Thinning hair has become a major concern amongst women of late. Some experience thinning tresses with age while others experience it in their twenties. Hair thinning in your 20s could be a condition called as Alopecia which is triggered by genetics and bad nutrition choices. Whatever be the reason; you’ll be happy to know that simple cuts, hair colouring techniques and styling tricks can disguise sparse strands.

Go chop chop
Did you know? Snipping a few inches off gives the illusion of thick, full hair. It is, therefore, a good idea to go chop chop and add layers to your hair cut. Shorter hair tends to create more volume as it is not weighed down and layers throughout the hair creates lift and movement.
Grey hair not a bane
You’ll be surprised to know that grey hair actually expands the hair's cuticle, adding additional volume. So, if your hair is greying, embrace it! And if you can’t stand those greys, then go for root touch-ups only once a month and add highlights every two or three weeks. This way, your hair will remain thick and at the same time healthy.
A good blowout works wonders
A good blowout post hair-wash is the best way to add volume to thinning tresses. All you need to do is take a boar bristle brush to blow-dry damp hair. Always blow-dry in the opposite direction that the hair naturally falls and finish off with an additional blast of cool air to set the style in place.
As much as you’d love to flaunt a center-parting, take a break from it if you want to hide thinning hair. Typical, center-parted hair will only emphasize scalp visibility. To keep that wide part from becoming too obvious, change your part; either try a zig-zag or a side-parting.
Products to hide thinning hair
A volumizing shampoo can be your best bet for hiding thinning hair. It not only combats limpness but also puffs up the hair. Choose a shampoo that is alcohol and sulfate-free. These chemicals can be very harsh on the hair and can lead to further hair fall and damage. Try the TRESemmé Beauty Full Volume Shampoo that infuses bounciness and locks in beautiful volume.
