Cheat Your Way to Thicker Hair
Posted on August 23 2018
1. Wash Your Hair The Right Way
The most common mistake people make is when washing their hair, by applying both shampoo and conditioner from root to tip. But in reality, you only need to shampoo your roots, and condition just the ends. Because your roots are the oilest part and the ends are usually your driest. Using conditioner on your roots will make your hair limp with no volume.
2. Learn To Backcomb Properly
Backcombing is undoubtedly the easiest way to add volume to your hair. But you need to know how to do it well. First make sure you have a good brush that’s tailored to backcombing, so look for those brushes with boar bristles and a pintail handle. Start by sectioning your hair into small sections, beginning at the crown. Comb through each section normally before backcombing. Once combed, slowly begin to push the hair back towards your scalp in one singular fluid movement. Then you can spray hairspray on the section to give it extra hold.
3. Give Yourself a DIY Blow-Dry
Using our CurlME bundle is the best way to give your hair major volume but if you are in a rush and don't have time, this simple trick will help. Blow dry your hair until it’s 80% dry, then put it in a high bun close to your forehead, using a soft scrunchie to avoid any hair breakage. Leave it to dry for 15 minutes then take it down. Your hair will look so much fuller.
4. Add Layers
The next time you're getting your hair cut, ask for layers. If you have a sleek blunt cut where your hair is all one length, it lacks dimension and can weigh your hair down. By adding lots of layers, your hair will have more movement and shape, resulting in more volume.
5. Hide Those Thinning Roots
Roots are an instant giveaway to thin hair, but there are easy ways to conceal them creating the illusion of thicker hair. One being spraying your roots with dry shampoo to add some texture and then filling in your hairline, using eyeshadow matching your hair colour to hide our scalp.
