Thick, luxurious hair is a beauty asset every woman craves, but some have a harder time achieving that look than others. If your hair is fine or limp, you may find yourself struggling each morning with a flat head of hair that just won’t behave. Even if you weren’t blessed with naturally thick tresses, you can still attain that sexy, bouncy look you see in fashion magazines. Here are some tips to help achieve thicker, fuller hair.
Highlights bless you with a sunny, natural look. They also give limp strands a body boost from the inside out. Lightening agents can actually expand the hair shaft up to three times its normal volume, making hair appear fuller and more lustrous.
Layer Your Look
Ask one of our stylists for a layered cut that flatters your face and lifts you at the crown. Even stick-straight hair, when layered just right, can go from flat to fantastic. If your hair is naturally thin or limp, opt for a style no longer than chin length. The shorter your strands, the more control you have over your shape and height.
Blow Dry With Purpose
The technique you use to blow your hair dry can make a big difference in how thick or thin your mane appears. Allow your hair to air dry as much as possible; this minimizes stress and heat damage, which can cause breakage and thin out your look. Part semi-damp hair on the opposite side of your natural part and dry it in this position to create lift at the roots.
Choose lightweight products
Thinner hair can get dragged down by heavy gels and creams. Use a light styling product with natural ingredients for maximum body without harsh chemicals. Avoid products with PVP or plastice polymers, use products that do not build up on the scalp clogging follicles, leaving a healthy foundation for hair to grow in and will not clogs follicles.
Nourish Your Body, Nourish Your Hair
Your hair is a reflection of your physical health. Bodies deficient in vitamin B6 and iron are more likely to produce dull, flat hair that breaks easily. If your hair is deficient, it’s much harder to achieve a full and healthy look. Nourish yourself with vitamin-packed fruits and vegetables and take a daily supplement with plenty of water. When you’ve got a healthy head of hair to work with, it’s much easier to tease your tresses into a fantastic style that flatters.
Some studies have shown that not taking care of your scalp can leave your hair flat, dry, and limp. This is because your scalp is an extension of your skin and should get the same care and attention as the skin on the rest of your body receives. The hair products we use on a daily basis build up on our scalp creating a unhealthy foundation for your hair to grow in. By exfoliating your scalp you can energize the skin where your hair takes root to create a healthier environment that will grow healthier hair. It is recommended once a week to remove that buildup of products and dead skin cells so that their scalp will be healthier for healthier hair.
