7 Ways to Make Thin Hair Appear Fuller

Turn thin hair into a great haircut.

1.      Part your hair on the opposite side. If you normally part your hair on the left, blow dry it as usual, but part it on the right to add extra volume at the roots. For an exaggerated effect, also use a root lifting spray.

 

2.     Backcomb your hair. Gently tease your roots using a comb, and use a high hold spray to keep the pumped-up look in place.

 

3.     Get short layers. A blunt cut can weigh your hair down. Adding light layers to any haircut for thin hair will give you greater shape and movement.

 

4.     Blow-dry your hair upside down. Flip your head upside down when it's still wet and blow dry. When you get to your roots, use your fingers to softly lift and tousle the hairs.

 

5.     Skip the serum. Serum makes your hair sleek and frizz-free, but it also makes it lay flat. Instead, sprinkle your roots with Schwarzkopf göt2b Powder’ful volumizing styling powder. This is a great texturizer, adding grip and tons of volume to your hair.

 

6.     Get highlights and lowlights. When your hair is all the same color, it can appear thinner. Adding multiple hues to your hair creates the appearance of depth and can make limp locks appear fuller.

 

7.     Use the right shampoo. A hair thickening shampoo can give your locks an added boost. Follow by blow-drying with a round brush for even more lift.
