Voluminous hair has always been the big thing. Unfortunately, many of us aren’t blessed with naturally billowing hair. But that doesn’t mean we should weigh our hair down with expensive extensions! Learning how to maintain naturally luscious locks is better – and cheaper – in the long run.
Adding a few simple steps to your beauty routine will give you a salon-perfect hairstyle. Read below for our top 5 Ways to Get Thicker Hair.
1. Change Shampoo and Conditioner
Most hair care lines sell thickening shampoo and conditioner. Use these when you wash your hair for full, flowing locks. Look for a shampoo and conditioner that doesn’t weigh your hair down while at the same time makes your hair look & feel thicker and smells great, without being overly perfumey. Hair products can be expensive! We recommend purchasing samples when available. We like Matrix Amplify Volume Shampoo & Conditioner Duo (5 Packettes) for only $6.85.
2. Blow-drying Tricks
When blow-drying your hair, flip your head upside down. When you flip your hair back up, it’ll look enormous! To make the volume last all day, spray the roots of your hair with hairspray before flipping it back over. Lightly brush the outer surface of your hair before heading to work or play.
3. Root Lifter
You need a root lifter in your life! Root lifters are meant to pump volume into the roots of your hair and make it appear thicker. When shopping for a root lifter, look for one that is weightess, can be used on wet or dry hair, and lasts up to 24 hours. We like Matrix Total Results Amplify Volume Wonder Boost Root Lifter.
When conditioning your hair make sure to only condition the middle to ends of your strands. This will prevent the conditioner from weighing your hair down. We found a conditioner that is weightless and makes your hair feel thicker and look fabulous. Beautiful, thicker hair can be yours with Thicker Fuller Hair Weightless Conditioner by Cell-U-Plex. We like Cell-U-Plex because it does what it promises.
Use a teasing brush around the crown of your head and spray with hairspray. This will give you tons of long-lasting volume. We recommend a brush for providing the most volume. Combs can easily cause breakage which no one wants. Spornette Little Wonder Boar-Nylon Bristle Teasing Brush does an excellent job and is designed to give loads of volume. At only $5.99 you can afford to go big!
