How to make thin, fine hair look thick and voluminous
BY LUSETA BEAUTY
What’s worse than dealing with a thin, stringy mane when every ad, actor, and model seems to live to shame you with a full, lustrous head of hair? Nothing, except maybe feeling self-conscious about it. The truth is, if you’re dealing with thinning hair, there’s no need to feel self-conscious. It happens to so many people for so many different reasons, including genetics, environment, and aging. However, don’t assume that there’s nothing you can do about it. Your body may not be able to produce more hair easily, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a style that draws attention to the gorgeous locks you’ve already got. If you need some help with thinning hair, here are some things to try.
Wear It Shorter
Nothing says confidence like a short, sassy bob or an elegant pixie cut. If you’re self-conscious about thinning hair, there’s no better way to take back the power than to get a stylish, of-the-moment cut reminiscent of a young Jean Seberg (hey, it’s never out of style!) Even if you’ve never had short hair before and you’re worried about trying it, don’t panic. No matter what you look like, there’s a short hairstyle out there to perfectly compliment your face shape, skin tone, and natural look. All you have to do is find it with the help of a trusted hairstylist.
Strengthen and Build
We may not be able to trick nature into giving us what we want when it comes to looks, but we can certainly persuade it to be a little more friendly in certain areas. If you deal with thinning hair, you’re not totally without resources when it comes to hair products. Certain organic elements, like keratin, which can help with volumizing, and biotin, which acts as a natural thickening agent, can help give your hair the lift and body it needs.
Embrace the Blowout
There’s no denying that blowouts are having a moment. Make that one in a series of moments that have led to the creation of places like Drybar that exist just to help bring hair to its highest, bounciest level. Nothing says ‘volume’ like a standard blowout, and if it’s drama you’re looking for, you’ll find instantly once you start styling and shaping your newly rich and lustrous-looking mane. A blowout isn’t just a great way to add natural volume to your look, it’s a crucial component of self-care. If you’re in the mood to treat yourself and help cover up thinning hair, it’s the perfect antidote.
