What Hairspray Should I Use On Thin Hair? Your Guide To Volumising Sprays And Styling Products For Fine Hair

If your hair is naturally fine, your number one goal is likely to be adding volume and making sure that it lasts throughout the day. The good news is that this is completely achievable by finding the best volumising spray that works for your hair and styling needs.

Although it may seem counterintuitive to put extra products on fine hair, session stylists actually use hairspray all the time to boost volume as it can be just as effective as some of the best hair thickening sprays around.

If you’re eager to learn how to get volume in your hair with minimum effort but maximum results, read on for our advice on how a volumising hair spray can work for you – with the help of TRESemmé’s professional-quality range.

 What To Look For In A Volumising Spray

Hairspray is not solely for holding curls in place or for reducing frizz and flyaways. In fact, if you’re looking to add volume to fine hair, a hairspray can actually work to add body and texture without leaving it feeling heavy or looking flat. It can also help maintain the effects of other styling products for fine hair you may have been using.

When purchasing a hairspray for thin hair, look for ones that don’t leave a stiff or sticky residue, as these can weigh the hair down and ruin your style. Make sure your hairspray gives a fine mist and brushes out easily, as these will allow natural movement while ensuring your style stays in place all day.

 How To Get Volume In Your Hair With A Hairspray

Below we’ve complied simple steps on how to boost hair volume using our professional-quality hairsprays. With the best volume sprays for fine hair at hand, it’s easy to achieve your desired style at home.

 Step 1: Prep Hair With A Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner

First prep your hair with a volumising shampoo and conditioner.. Massage a generous amount of the TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Shampoo into wet hair until you’ve got a good lather, working it down from roots to ends and rinse thoroughly. Next, apply the conditioner TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Conditioner focusing on the lower half of your hair, gently combing through with a wide-tooth comb or fingers. Leave on for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

This duo is one of our best combinations because the system is formulated with a special volume control complex, that is designed to help your hair from falling flat. 

 Step 2: Blow Dry Hair Upwards

Once you’ve gently squeezed out the excess water from your hair and patted it with a towel, smooth through a small amount of volumising blow dry cream like TRESemmé Volumising Blow-dry Crème from root to tip. This will help boost your hair’s volume while protecting it from heat damage.

Proceed to dry your hair with a hairdryer, lifting up sections with a rounded brush and pointing the nozzle upwards to give your roots a lift.

 Step 3: Use Hairspray As A Hair Volume Spray

Once your hair is completely dry, it’s time to seal in all that volume with a hairspray. When it comes to choosing the best hairspray for fine hair, look for one that won’t leave your hair feeling stiff, such as the TRESemmé Botanique Natural Hold Hairspray, which has a light, alcohol-free formula, blended with natural coconut and cactus water to enhance your hair’s shape, with no silicones that can weigh down your strands.

There are also stronger hairsprays that work to hold your volumised style in place, ensuring your hair doesn’t flatten as the day wears on. The TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray has a formulation that keeps your style in place all day – without feeling heavy – to create a salon quality finish at home. Plus, it can easily be brushed out at the end of the day.

One question fine-haired women often wonder is ‘how to give hair volume at the roots?’ as this will give your look a fuller appearance. The answer is simple. Flip your hair upside down and mist hairspray through your roots. Gently tease with your fingers to add texture. Turn your head upright, spray your finished hairstyle, working section by section, eight to ten inches away from the hair.

Step 4: Top Up Your Volume With A Wave Enhancer

If you don’t wash your hair everyday, there are ways you can prevent all that volume from diminishing on non-wash days. The TRESemmé Day 2 Wave Enhancer For Fine & Wavy Hair contains natural starch cleansers to absorb excess oils that might weigh the hair down, leaving it feeling fresh and clean – all without any obvious white residue, thanks to special Refractive Index Oil Masking technology that diffuses light.

Shake well and dispense the foam into the palm of your hand. Tip your head upside down and gently massage the foam into your roots (without brushing out). Style your hair as usual, adding a light mist of hairspray to lock in the volume.

Now you’ve read our guide and know how to add volume to thin hair, we hope that you go on to style your hair with confidence. With your new fuller look, you’ll be ready to take on the day no matter what comes your way.
