How To Add Volume To Hair: 5 Tips To Add Life To Fine, Flat Hair

If your hair is lacking in volume, and preventing you from achieving the style you want, there are ways to add body and texture with the help of a few key products to give hair volume. Learning how to volumize hair is easy and you can do so by just making a few tweaks to your regular haircare routine – for maximum results with minimal effort.

TRESemmé have got this covered with some of the best volumizing hair products with professional quality formulas that protect the condition of your strands, while boosting the appearance of thickness, helping you achieve your desired end result with ease. Read on to find out more.

Step-by-step guide to volumizing fine thin hair

Simply follow the 5 steps that we’ve outlined below on how to add body and volume to your hair, so you can finally achieve your desired end look.

Step 1: Choose a Thickening Shampoo To Boost Flat Hair

When it comes to boosting fine, thin hair, a volumizing shampoo [link to article 13] is your ideal first step. TRESemmé Full Fiber Volume Shampoo is formulated with collagen technology and provides instant lift and body to flat hair.

Start by coating wet hair with a generous amount of shampoo and gently massage the scalp and roots with your fingertips to work up a lather. Lightly squeeze the shampoo from roots to ends and rinse thoroughly.

Step 2: Boost Vibrancy And Thickness With A Volumizing Conditioner

While you’re working out how to give hair volume, you might end up cutting back on conditioner, in case it weighs the hair down, making it look more limp and flat. But this doesn’t mean you need to skip the conditioner altogether – fine, thin hair is still prone to breakage and split ends which can turn a good hair day into a bad one. Just choose a conditioner with a lightweight formula that won’t add extra weight and that has been formulated to nourish flat, fine hair, such as the TRESemmé Full Fiber Volume Conditioner.

Step 3: Prep Hair Before You Blow Dry

A hair dryer can be a useful tool when you’re discovering how to make thin hair look thicker, especially when used in conjunction with the best volumizing hair products. Prepping your hair with TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Mousse can make all the difference when it comes to adding body and texture.

Apply a small amount to damp hair from root to tip, then blow dry your hair, lifting up sections and focusing on the roots and pointing the nozzle upwards. Using a round brush while you blow dry can help create soft waves in your hair, giving the appearance of more fullness and natural movement.

Step 4: Hold The Volume In Your Hair

While you might want to steer clear of adding too much product – in case it weighs down your flat hair even further – using a volumizing spray that has been used to hold your style in place will ensure your hair does not fall flat. We recommend using our TRESemmé Dry Texture Finishing Mist as it provides weightless, full-body volume and texture for an effortless looking style.

Now you know how add volume to fine hair, you can easily boost its texture whenever the occasion requires it so you can achieve your desired look and feel totally in control of your style.
