Hair is a big deal for us ladies. I mean let’s be honest here, we’ve all had that one horrible haircut and it basically ruined life forcing use to wear hat’s or scarves for weeks until it all grew out. We all have an ideal of what amazing hair looks like to. While there are a vast array of cuts and colors that may be perfect for us, the one thing that is likely a constant in those hair fantasies, is that the hair has tons of volume. No matter how you style it or don’t, even in a messy bun, hair with volume just looks great. As life is generally not fair and equal though, not everyone is blessed with picture perfect hair. Some of us have to work hard at it. Great news though – there are ways, easy ways, like styling tricks or specialized products like Women’s ROGAINE® Foam that can help to give your hair more volume just like you want.
How To Add Volume To Fine or Thin Hair
Move your part from time to time. If you’ve worn your hair parted in the same place for longer than you can remember, try switching it up. After being flattened in the same direction for a length of time, moving that part will help lift your hair away from your scalp in that area and make the hair on the top of your head look like it has more volume.
Try a curly or wavy hair style. If you’re hair is naturally flat and/or thin, rocking a hairstyle that gets those hairs up off of your head, like waves or curls will give the illusion of a ton more volume. There may be a little product involved in this option because if your hair is like mine, it doesn’t hold a curl well, so I have to use a thermal setting spray or something to keep them from going limp. I have to admit, I don’t always take the time to do it, but when I do curl my hair I feel like a different person and my confidence skyrockets…because great hair!
Hotter Is Not Better. When you’re ready to rock those curls, just remember that hot is not always the answer. For the health of your hair, the less heat you use to style your hair the better. Too much heat too often can dry your hair out and that’s never good. If you can air dry instead of blow dry (lazy weekend for the win!) that can also give your hair a break. When you do reach for your blow-dryer or styling iron just remember you don’t have to use the hottest setting to achieve results especially if you have finer hair to begin with.
Not All Brushes Are Equal. Those metal round brushes? They’re great for heat styling, but they can get very hot so be careful. They’re not the best for your hair so if you use them, use them in moderation. Hard plastic brushes also tend to do more damage than good so try to stick with softer bristles on your everyday brush. There are specific brushes for backcombing as well which is a great way to add volume to any style. Overdoing it can do damage though so just be mindful of that if you find yourself backcombing or heat styling every day.
Women’s ROGAINE® Foam. If you have thinning hair because of hereditary hair loss and/or ageing, Women’s ROGAINE® can help. Thinning hair due to heredity and/or ageing is actually very common so if that describes you, don’t freak out.
If this easy to use foam is applied to the scalp once daily, every day, most women will start regrowing fuller, thicker hair in as little as 12 weeks. Sounds pretty good right? If you think so then be sure to grab a coupon for $5 off your purchase. You or someone you know can have fuller, thicker hair before summers over!
