Is your hair limp and flat? Do you find it difficult to make any hairstyle due to thick hair and crave for voluminous hair?
There can be various reasons behind thin hair like diet, hormones, weather or passage of time. Patience, creativity and some tricks can help you get the desired look even with the delicate locks. Though getting volume like Kangana Ranaut is not possible, you can still make your flat and thin hair look heavy and thick by trying some easy tricks given here.
- Avoid too Much Brushing
Too much of brushing can damage your hair by causing split ends and hair breakage. So brush your hair only when you really need to do it. Too much brushing can make your hair flat by distributing the scalp’s oil. If possible, use your fingers to detangle the knots and comb hair gently.
- Use Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner
Some cosmetic and beauty brands offer volumizing shampoos and conditioners. You can use these to add volume to your hair. These hair care products cleanse gently without leaving unwanted build-ups and make your hair look fuller.
- Towel tips
Stop rubbing your hair with towel to dry them. Instead, gently blot your hair with towel or a cotton t-shirt when you step out of the shower. You can also use water-absorbing microfiber towel to make blowouts easier and to make drying quicker.
- Use pancaking technique to add volume to braid
You can easily make your braid look thicker by simply pulling out each loop on one side. Just pull a pinch with your fingertips and make a thread like braid look thicker and beautiful.
- Get a layered hair cut
The next time when you go for a haircut, ask your stylist to give you a layered cut. Layers create an illusion of thick hair by adding bounce. Hairstylist can suggest you right hair cut based on your face and personality. It will not just add volume to thin hair but will also compliment your face.
- Use an egg-size amount of mousse
While using mousse make sure your hair are damp. This is the key element to add volume to limp hair. You can either use hair spray or can opt for creamy mousse. If you are using creamy texture, take an egg-size dollop on your hand and apply it evenly through damp hair before blow drying. Make sure you apply mousse roots to the ends.
- Flip your part
If you follow the same part for a longer period, your hair gets stuck in the routine of falling in the same position. You can immediately give some lift to your flat hair by changing up the part. If you do middle part every day, try side part to add oomph to your normal look. You can also try hairstyle that doesn’t need a part at all.
- Use blow dryer wisely
If you master the art of blow drying, you can easily add bounce to your limp hair. Make sure you use a heat protectant before using styling tools on your hair. Also, make sure you use diffuser to quicken drying process and then use brush to lift up the roots away from the scalp.
- Curly hairstyle
Give instant boost to your thin hair with a curly or wavy hairstyle. If you don’t want to roast your hair with heating wave strategy, apply a mousse to clean hair and make large braids by dividing hair in four parts. Let the damp braids dry thoroughly, unfurl the plaits and detangle hair with your fingers to get sexy beach waves.
- Dry shampoo
Instead of washing your hair every day, try using a dry shampoo between two hair washes. Excessive use of shampoo strips away natural oils from hair and force scalp to produce more oil. It makes your hair look greasy and thin. By using dry shampoo, you can get rid of greasy feel and add volume to locks.
