Volumizing for Thin Hair
Is there any woman who is absolutely content with the state of their hair? Particularly when it comes down to volume–when women are discussing their hair, the conversation typically centers around the ones who feel their hair is too thin, and those who hate how thick their hair is. All in all, there seem to be a number of women who would give their all to have thicker hair, and especially in specific instances.
More Volume Where it’s Truly Needed
All-over thicker hair, and more volume in general, is not exactly what any woman wants. It is more about being able to easily produce volume in the desired spots that best complement any specific hairstyle. It’s about hair control, and being able to form your hair into the precise shapes that any style requires. No such thing would be possible without strategic formulations, procedures and tools to pull it off. Fortunately, women today have a wealth of products to help and assist them in producing strategic volume where it will look best, while simultaneously allowing them to leave other sections of any hairstyle less voluminous for desired effects.
Where it All Begins
Make sure you start with a clean slate. Hair that is weighted down by a number of products can be a major deterrent to volume. Make sure to add a powerfully cleansing shampoo to your collection, that comes dedicated to clearing your scalp and invigorating the boost of your hair’s roots. Look for ingredients like coconut, almond, soybean and sunflower oils that are proven volume-producers.
Fill up on Filloxane
Studies have shown how almost half of all women contend with worries over how their hair is thinning. There is good news for these women and many others who might have such concerns. The keyword is “Filloxane.” This proven hair thickening agent remarkably inserts itself right into the shaft of the hair, which results in a thickness from inside the hair shaft. Look for this key ingredient in the hair products you select. You’ll find it in shampoos, in-shower treatments and specially formulated conditioners.
Before going to bed, arrange your hair up, on top of your head, thereby pulling it from the roots upward. Take strands from there and twist into curls that are secured with bobby pins for tomorrow’s hairstyle. And when you blow dry your hair, do it upside down, which gives the roots an added boost for ensured volume.
Add-Ins You Can Use
There are many dry shampoos on the market that can double as hair volumizers. In addition to products specifically formulated for adding dry volume, these hair volumizers are wonderful for not only adding volume, but at the same time, adding an awesome control to everything you want to do, including teasing and updos. And what is amazing is that even when you don’t have any specific volume-adding products and you need volumizing on the fly, look no further than your pantry, spice cabinet or bathroom. Try using the best-colored product to match your hair color. Cocoa powder works great to volumize darker shades, and talcum powder can be exactly what’s needed to lift those lighter colored locks.
