Here are some helpful hints to get you thicker and fuller looking hair…
1. Add Layers for Lift
A cut with lots of layers will appear fuller, and if you don’t want to have layers all over, just get them in the front so the pieces around your face have movement.
2. Find the Right Styling Formulas and Products
To get major volume, use root lifting products or mousse for texture and to plump up strands. Products with keratin amino acids and wheat proteins are always good. Avoid shine sprays, frizz serums, and waxes. Anything silicone-based is a no-no, since it weighs down your hair.
3. Condition With Caution
Deep conditioning and hair masks are important – but only if you have damage from chemical processing or color treatment. Use conditioner sparingly,as it can weigh hair down. If your hair is relatively healthy, you can get away with using conditioner just from the mid-shaft to the ends. Also, a weekly wash with a clarifying shampoo can help remove any build-up of styling products that may be weighing hair down.
4. Be a Tease
Teasing, also known as back-combing, is a foolproof way to create more volume, and working the technique at the crown will give any style more lift. To tease, take a one to two inch section of hair and comb it towards the roots with a fine tooth comb or boar bristle brush. A teased crown adds fullness to half-up dos, twists, and ponytails. A high ponytail as an easy shortcut for those craving more volume.
5. Create Some Curl
For lift that lasts from morning to night, try setting hair in large curls. After blow-drying, loosely loop a two to three inch section of hair into a large curl and pin or set it in large rollers to let it cool while you’re doing your makeup.
Or, wrap your roots around a wide barrel curling iron for a few seconds. For the most lift at the roots, get the iron as close to the scalp as you can without burning yourself.
