Stylists assure that only a comprehensive approach can achieve a sustainable hair volume effect. Everything is important here: cutting, hair care, choice of styling products, and even hair color.
The volume of hair starts with her! If nature hasn’t endowed you with a lush and thick hair, a proper haircut from a good craftsman can create a miracle. Keep in mind that very short or long hair always looks less voluminous, especially if you have thin and straight hair. For fine hair, a medium length is best, and a light filleting will make it lush. The ‘cara’ cut looks very good on thin hair. If you prefer longer hair, the optimal length is just below the shoulders. In this case, the ideal cut is staircase, with strands of different lengths: it will give volume even to thin naughty hair.
Visually, you can make your hair thicker by shimmering or coloring it. This simple but effective method has long been used by Hollywood stylists. However, avoid very contrasting coloring – to achieve the effect of lushness and volume of hair, the shades of the strands should differ from each other by no more than two tones.
The shampoo and balm should be designed specifically for thin, volume-free hair, and the label may also indicate a “volume” label. These products cleanse and nourish the hair without weighing it down, and components such as collagen or special polymers give the hair extra volume. Hair mask, balm, conditioner and other care products that require rinsing (unless they are from the “volume” range), apply to the hair, departing from its roots 1-2 centimeters. This will allow you to achieve more volume at the roots of the hair.
Giving volume to your hair is almost impossible without styling. That’s probably the most important thing. Professional stylists have their own secrets, allowing them to achieve the effect of volume even on thin and thin hair. From their arsenal is worth borrowing all kinds of varnishes, mousses and other styling products marked “for thin hair” or “for volume hair. Keep in mind: products from professional rulers have a more saturated composition and usually provide a better effect, but because of the abundance of active components is very important not to overdo it with their quantity. Otherwise, the volume will fall quickly, especially under the hat. And your hair will look dirty.
You also need to be able to properly dry your hair. If your goal is just to dry your hair and give it volume at the roots, do so by putting your head down and directing the warm air flow directly to the roots, but without bringing the hair dryer closer than 15cm. Once your hair is dry, let it cool down without raising your head. If you’re looking for volumetric styling, dry your hair with a hair dryer and a round brush (twist it up to the roots) or use the large diameter curlers.
