5 Tips to Make Your Hair Look Thicker

Thicker Looking Hair

How to Get the Hair You Never Dreamed You Could Have!

Do you have hair envy for women who seem to have effortless volume or gorgeously thick hair? While some women are naturally blessed with thick locks, some may be deceiving you with some tricks of the trade. Follow these 5 easy tips to make your hair deceptively thicker and fuller for hair that’s worth envying.

Make the Cut

A haircut can work like magic for women with flat or fine hair. If you have longer hair, opt for square, blunt ends instead of a “V” or oval shape. Avoid hairstyles that are too long; length should be no longer than 2 to 3 inches below the shoulder. For shorter cuts, consider a hairstyle that has graduation (also known as a stack). Layers are an awesome way to add fullness and volume for all lengths, but too many layers can be a disaster for fine hair. For best results, discuss your hair type and goals with a hairstylist, who can guide you to the right haircut for your face shape and hair texture.

Be a Pro with Products

Think of your friends who have the most stylish hair. Unless they’ve been abundantly blessed with naturally fabulous hair, I guarantee that they’re using at least two styling products to achieve their look. Some shampoos and conditioners weigh hair down, leaving you a step behind when it comes to styling. Instead, set yourself up for success in the shower with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner Rejuvenating Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner $30). Towel dry hair and apply a volumizing spray or mousse to your roots (Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Spray Mousse ).  Use hands to massage and ensure even distribution. Once hair is dry, a firm holding hairspray is a must for locking in your look (Kenra Volume Spray 25). For an extra boost, dare to dry a volumizing hair powder or dry shampoo (Big Sexy Hair Powder Play ). These products tend to make hair feel gritty, but deliver amazing results!

Take on The Tease

Hair stylists’ best kept secret? They love to tease! So many women are hesitant to tease their hair for fear that it can cause damage or look unnatural. When done correctly, teasing can be very effective, and cause little to no damage to hair. In the crown area, take a “V” section allowing the point of the “V”to be 3 to 4 below the flat of the head. Back comb the “V”section and then use comb to smooth the top section of hair. Repeat on the sides of the head for added volume. Be sure to finish the look with hairspray. To remove teasing, use a wide tooth comb in the shower after applying conditioner.

Embrace the Curl

A great way to create the illusion of fullness is with a loose wave or curl. While straight hair falls flat on the head, waves are a great way to create volume and movement. Nothing is better than a round brush and blow dryer for creating volume, but if that’s a challenge at home, consider a large barrel curling iron or velcro rollers. Not to mention, those beauty queens and cheerleaders know what they’re doing with hot rollers! For added fullness, focus heat on the root area to create lasting volume.

Do your Do

Take a clue from Carrie Underwood or Kim Kardashian and consider trying a half up/half down hairstyle. By pinning hair, you can guarantee perfect volume that will last all night. First add a tease to hair, then comb back and secure with bobby pins.  After pinning hair, use the pointy end of a rat tail comb to shape your bump and smooth the top.

The higher the hair the closer to Heaven? Texans may have the right idea . . . to a certain extent. Women do feel sexier with fuller thicker hair. There’s no shame in giving your hair a little boost to get the volume you crave. Try these tips, and embrace your southern side.

5 How To Strategies For Thicker Hair

Here are the Insider Secrets on How to Get Thick Hair

Everyone wants a thick head of hair; the hard part lies in getting it. Genetics is often to blame for thin and wispy hair, but with so many tips and tricks out there it is easy to get fuller hair. Even if you have to fake it.

You can get thicker hair naturally . . . medical science has shown that consuming daily key vitamins, like the vitamin B family, can help your hair grow thicker. Because hair is essential made of proteins, eating healthy will allow those nutrients to be absorbed and be reflected in hair growth. If you cannot get those nutrients in, try taking a daily multivitamin to supplement. Prenatal pills can also help stimulate thicker hair growth. Of course, you’ll want to talk to your doctor first to see what the right dosage is for you.

Another way to get thicker hair is through care. Washing your hair daily is not necessary. In fact, many hair stylists recommend you skip a day to avoid stripping hair of key nutrients. However, you’ll find that skipping can leave your hair oily and lifeless. So on those days you skip wash, use a dry shampoo. Not only does it clean your hair and keep it fresh, it also adds volume and texture. All you need to do from there is run your fingers through it for a nice and tousled look.

When brushing your hair, opt for a round brush. Start at the roots and work your way out to the end. The shape of the brush creates even volume for your hair throughout. If you need to blow-dry your hair, try doing so with your head slightly upside down. The direction of the air forces your hair the other way so that when you stand back up, it still hold some of it up, creating a look of a thick hair style.

If all else fails, you can create an illusion of thicker hair. The best way to go about this is by creating volume. To do that, you should choose haircuts for thick hair, such as a haircut with long and multiple layers. Layers are perfect hairstyles for thick hair. This will allow you to curl or wave your hair so that it is not just one length and adds more dimensions to your overall style. If you have very thin hair, try to avoid straightening it.

Not everyone is blessed with naturally thick hair, but there are many ways to get it, even if you have to fake it. Just remember to eat balanced meals, take care of your hair, and choose styles for thick hair that create the most volume. Keep trying out new styles to find ones that work best on you.
