Everyone dreams of having thick and beautiful hair. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with it. But this does not mean you should live with limp and flat hair your whole life but you can easily fake having thicker hair. Today, we will be showing you how you can make hair appear thicker and fuller without the need to wear wig or hear extensions. It is all about finding the right products and knowing how to use them.
Control the Oil
The use of volumising shampoo and conditioner is a good start if you want to fake fuller hair. But it is also important to note that you need to refrain from conditioner that is designed for smoothing purposes as they are typically infused with oils and moisturisers. While it might be good for certain types of hair, it can compromise your efforts at achieving thicker hair as this will cause hair to fall flatter and weigh down. It is also recommended that you refrain from touching your hair too often as oils coming from your hands or fingers can also weigh down the hair.
Skip the Leave-in Treatments
Again, the use of leave-in treatments might benefit certain hair types or condition, but it will do you no good if you are trying to get more thickness into your hair. After washing your hair, DO NOT use leave-in creams or oils. Replace that with a root lifting mousse instead. When you apply it to hair before blow drying, this will help to effectively lift each strands away from the scalp to give it the appearance of more volume. An adequate dose of volumising powder can also get the job done. This product is helpful in not only adding more lift but also making each strands seem thicker in texture.
Adding some curls and wave patterns to your hair will also instantly make it look thicker. Curl your hair using a curling iron or hot rollers to ensure that the curls set for several hours. But even if the curls do not set until the end of the day, the added texture on the strands will contribute to making hair look fuller and thicker than they really are.
Do the Flick!
In case you do not have enough time to style your hair in the morning, this is one trick that you can use to instantly add thickness to your hair. All you need is two minutes and you can get a well volumised hair. For this one, you need to take out your hair straightener. Use it to create a slight curve on the ends of the hair. Even if you only work the ends of the hair, it will create the illusion of thicker hair whereas poker straight ends will look flat due to lack of shape and movement.
