If you have fine hair, you probably dream of what it might be like to have thick, luscious locks. Luckily, there are supplements you can take to boost your locks, and ways to fake this look. Combine choosing the right hairstyles for fine hair with the following helpful tips and you’re sure to reap the volumising benefits.


Use the right products


Hair products for fine hair are extremely important. For example, L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Volumetry Shampoo is every fine-haired beauty’s trusted shower companion. Likewise, the lightweight, uplifting L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Volume Lift Spray-Mousse is great for using just before a blow-dry.


Try a new blow-dry technique

Speaking of blow-drying, one of the most fool-proof volumising tricks is to blow-dry your hair upside down on a medium heat setting, tousling as you go. 

Combine choosing the right hairstyles for fine hair with the following helpful tips and you’re sure to reap the volumising benefits.

Hair boosting vitamins

You are what you eat, after all! Boost your tresses with the help of supplements and vitamins. Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Omega-3 and iron are all essential for promoting optimal hair growth.


Change your parting

A middle parting is not a go-to when it comes to hairstyles and hair care for fine hair. A side or zigzag parting will lift your hair at the roots and show less scalp!


Get a massage

Regular scalp massages are said to improve and encourage hair growth. Who needs any more of an excuse?


Take a break

There are many short hairstyles for fine hair such as a layered bob or side swept angled lob. Both styles will add volume to your thinning hair. While styling your hair can help it appear fuller, too much styling can lead to further breakage and hair loss. It is important to take a breather from time to time to give your tresses a chance to recuperate.


At the end of the day, all that it takes is a bit of extra effort and the right products. Now you can look and feel FINE regardless of your hair texture or thickness.
