If your hair is naturally fine, your number one goal is probably to add volume that lasts throughout the day. Need an extra lift? A volumizing shampoo will boost your hair from the roots. Add it to your hair care regimen to create voluminous hairstyles that defy gravity.

So, what does volumizing shampoo do? A volumizing shampoo targets your scalp, instantly lifting your strands and plumping up the hair. It also thoroughly cleanses, removing any product build-up and excess oils that might be weighing your hair down. In other words, it’s key to creating a thicker and fuller look.

How to pick a specialized volumizing shampoo

For thicker and fuller hair, you need to choose a specially formulated volume-boosting shampoo that will leave your tresses full of bounce and vitality. Look for products that contain nourishing ingredients like collagen, which strengthens weak and thin strands. We recommend TRESemmé Full Fiber Volume Shampoo as it offers lightweight hydration and instant lift and body to flat hair.

How to top up your volume

Here are a few tips and products that can help you make the most out of your volumizing shampoo.

Start in the bathroom

First prep your hair with a volumizing shampoo. Massage a good amount of TRESemmé Full Fiber Volume Shampoo into wet hair until you’ve got a good lather, working it down from roots to ends. This will enhance your follicle structure and lift your roots. Rinse thoroughly and squeeze excess water from your hair.

Always pair your shampoo with a volumizing conditioner

Next, apply  TRESemmé Full Fiber Volume Conditioner, focusing on the lower half of your hair, gently combing through with a wide-tooth comb or your fingers. Leave on for 2-3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

This duo is one of our best combinations as it's formulated with our innovative Pro Collagen & Peptide Complex, that delivers instant lift and body.

Pump up the volume

To maintain the effects of your volumizing shampoo and conditioner, use a volumizing spray. Although it may seem counterintuitive to put extra products on fine hair, a quality volumizing spray can add extra lift so you can achieve a fuller style.

Get a flawless finish

Once you’ve created your fuller style with a volumizing spray, you’ll need to hold it in place with a good hairspray that won’t leave a stiff or sticky residue, as these can weigh the hair down and ruin your look. Make sure your hairspray gives a fine mist that will allow natural movement while ensuring your style stays in place all day.

When it comes to choosing the best hairspray for volume, look for one that has been specially developed for this purpose, like TRESemmé Total Volume Hair Spray.

Dry shampoo is your friend

If you don’t wash your hair every day there are ways you can prevent all that volume from diminishing on non-wash days.  TRESemmé Volume Clean Dry Shampoo is infused with clay and citrus – it removes any excess oils and impurities, resulting in clean and volumized hair without any residue.
