Thick Hair Tips
Thick hair is the object of desire for many. Unfortunately, due to various factors like genetics, pregnancy, over-processing and seasonal changes, hair that was once thick can easily become thinner. Thankfully there are ways to make your hair look thicker--all it takes is knowing some styling tips and tricks. Here, some of the best hairstyles for thin hair, that will make your mane look naturally thick without any major cut or coloring.
Thick Hair Style Idea: Fluff Your Ponytail
Ponytails are so versatile. If you want your pony to create the optical illusion of thicker hair, here's a little trick to keep in your back pocket. Spritz hair with a thickening spray at the roots. Gather hair in a low ponytail at the base of the head and secure with an elastic band. You can wrap a piece of hair around the base of the ponytail if you desire. Now take the hair in the ponytail and wrap random pieces around a curling iron barrel. Try the HSI Groover 1" Curling Wand with Digital LCD.
Thick Hair Style Trick: Tousled Hair
This style works best if you have a natural wave in your hair. First, prep hair by using a heat protectant spray, such as HSI Professional Argan Oil Heat Protectant for Hair. Next, blow-dry hair straight using a round brush and a ceramic blowdryer, such as the HSI Dryonizer 3300. Finally, using a curling wand, wrap random sections around the barrel, leaving the ends out.
Half Up Half Down Hair Style
The effortlessly cool hair style that does double duty as a volumizer is the half up, half down look. When you go halfsies, you're creating more fullness at the bottom of the hair by contrasting it with a more narrow look up top.
If you've noticed more hair loss than usual, make sure you're using heat protectant products and incorporate a healing shampoo and conditioner, such as HSI Anti-Aging Reverse Therapy Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo and Healing Conditioner.
