Fine hair can be a beautiful and versatile asset, but it can also be prone to looking flat and lifeless. If you're struggling to add volume and body to your fine hair, try out these hairstyles and tips for a boost of volume and style.
Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner: The right hair care products can make a big difference in the appearance of your hair. Look for products specifically formulated for fine hair, and avoid those containing heavy oils or silicone, as they can weigh hair down. Some great options for fine hair include the L'Oreal Paris EverStrong Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner and the Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Hair Care Set.
Dry your hair with a round brush: When blow-drying your hair, use a round brush to lift your roots and add volume to your strands. Start by rough-drying your hair with your head upside down, then use the round brush to lift and style your hair as you blow-dry.
Use a volumizing mousse: Mousse is an excellent product for adding volume and body to fine hair. Some great options for fine hair include the Garnier Fructis Style Sky-Hi Volume Mousse and the Dove Style + Care Volume Amplifier Mousse. Apply a small amount to your roots and mid-lengths, and then styles as desired.
Try a hairstyle with layers: Layers can add volume and body to fine hair, creating a more textured and dimensional look. Ask your stylist for long, face-framing layers that start around your cheekbones, and avoid heavy, blunt cuts that can weigh your hair down.
Use a dry shampoo: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Nettle. This dry shampoo is made with natural, plant-based ingredients and is free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. The main active ingredient in this dry shampoo is nettle, a plant known for its oil-absorbing properties. It also contains corn starch, which helps to absorb excess oil and add volume to your hair.
With these hairstyles and tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to achieving fuller, more voluminous hair full of life and body. Just remember to be gentle with your fine hair and avoid using heat styling tools too often, as they can cause damage and breakage. Happy styling!
