• Shorter hair gives the illusion of thickness. Have an above-the-shoulder, layered cut, or a blunt cut.
  • Use products specially formulated for fine, thin, and thinning hair.
  • Use a volumizing shampoo which is formulated to thicken each strand with the use of polymers.
  • Shampoo your hair more frequently. As fine hair gets dirty faster, people with fine-textured hair need to shampoo more frequently. A good volumizing shampoo and volume-building conditioner will be helpful.
  • Rinse your hair well! Leftover residue weighs hair down.
  • Apply a light conditioner just to the ends of your hair. The root area of the hair rarely needs conditioning.
  • Towel-dry your hair first, and then use a low heat setting on your blow-dryer. Dry the root area of the hair first and give hair a lift.
  • Use a vent brush to lift the hair up rather than brushing it. Brushing the hair in the opposite direction from which it falls will give you the appearance of fuller hair.
  • Use a mousse or volumizing gel that is formulated for fine hair. The addition of a root lifter is also helpful. Sprayed on at the root of the hair will give extra body and lift.
  • Finish your hairstyle with a light hairspray. Use it only where needed such as around the face, on the backcombing before smoothing it and lightly over the top.
  • Get a perm or curl your hair to create volume. Curlers or wavers can do wonders for helping hair appear thicker.
  • Use hair cosmetic camouflage, like Toppik, HairSoReal HSR(microfiber "hairs" made from protein to thicken your existing hair), COUVR√© (a cream or spray that masks thinning hair), and DermMatch (a cosmetic powder that thickens hair and covers the scalp).
