Having naturally thin or fine hair can be a bummer, at times. Sometimes, you love having a pin-straight, low-maintenance style. But sometimes, you wish you could fatten up those strands, or at least create the illusion, and stop suffering from oily, limp hair problems. Don’t fret, thin-haired damsels! There are some secret thickening hacks out there to make your locks look way more voluminous, and we’re here to share.
1. Avoid shampoos and conditioner with sulfates. Some cheaper drugstore products contain detergents, alcohol, and other yucky ingredients which gives shampoo that nice lather feel, but is actually ruining your hair. Stay damage free with a sulfate and paraben-free option.
2. Use colored hair powder to hide parts of your scalp that you’re worried will peek through! Colored dry shampoo works just as well, and may even add more texture and volume to thin hair. It’s temporary, damage-free, and creates the perfect illusion for fuller hair. You can also dust the appropriate shade of eye shadow.
3. Use dry shampoo! Even if hair is clean, dry shampoo will add a natural boost and sexy volume to thin hair. You can even get colored dry shampoo to double whammy that thin hair and those visible roots.
4. Stay away from long haircuts. Even if you’re super attached to your mane, since it’s thin, it’s less luscious and more prone to that oily look that isn’t so cute on longer hair. Shorter, layered cuts will help your ‘do look thicker and create the volume illusion that you need.
