Fine Hair Overthrow: 3 Pro Ways To Make Thin Hair Look Thicker
1. Go Easy With The Scissors On Thin HairThe first pro-approved trick is to always ensure your graduated cut is shaped well. While a graduated cut can add body to your fine hair when done well, a graduated cut that is too pronounced can have the opposite effect… a reason you should leave the precise art of cutting hair to the professionals. A balanced graduated cut stacks weight onto your outer shape without over cutting the hair hidden in the bottoms layers making thin hair look thicker; if too much is shaved off from underneath, hello flat hair!
You should also steer clear of sharp, dramatic angles or curves on the outside lengths of your graduated hair.
Stick with longer lengths to avoid unwanted end results! If you do want to add some curves or angles to your outer shape, be sure that it’s done subtly. This is why you should consult with your stylist before committing to any adventurous requests you bring to the salon - the pros know best, it’s just a fact.
2. Gentle Hair Styling For Thin airYou know the expression “less is more”? Well, when it comes to styling thin hair, hold this little gem close to your heart. It may seem reasonable to put more energy into heat styling your hair so as to compensate for your fine hair type - wroooong. It’s a good idea to ease off on the heat tools with thin hair.

3. Fine-Tune Your Hair Care Routine To Achieve Thicker Hair
It’s tempting to go overboard with rigorous shampooing, but you must resist the temptation to over wash! The act of over washing your locks can inflict long-term damage to your delicate hair fibres. Tisk, tisk - save the strands! So, the million dollar question, exactly how often should you wash your hair? Experts tell us it varies depending on how much sebum (grease) you produce as well as the type of shampoo you’re using. For fine hair, it’s better to use a gentle, yet protective shampoo.
Use L’Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Volumetry shampoo for a daily shampoo that gently purifies without stripping away the natural state of your hair. This, as well as opting for a dry shampoo like L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Morning After Dust a couple days a week can be a good practice to avoid overwashing. For special occasions when you want more intense results, Kérastase’s Volumifique Bain safely lifts flat hair through its Ampliflex System, which acts to stimulate your hair’s natural vitality for added bounce and thickness. Good hair days are just the right shampoo away.
