How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair

If you’ve ever headed out the door after styling your strands into a bouncy blowout only to catch a glimpse of hopelessly limp hair a couple of hours later in the bathroom mirror, you’re not alone. The good news is that you can make thin or fine hair look thicker with the right hair care products and styling tips. Incorporating the following simple hair tips into your hair care routine can help create the appearance of more voluminous hair. Go ahead and follow our tips below—then show off your big, beautiful mane!

1. Use a Volumizing System of Hair Care Products in the Shower


Upping how voluminous your hair looks starts in the shower. If you have thin or fine hair, look for a system of shampoo and conditioner that can help make your hair look like it has more volume than it really does, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner. Apply the shampoo to wet hair, gently massaging it in, then rinse out and follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for 1-2 minutes before rinsing out.

2. Apply the Right Styling Products to Damp Hair


After you’re out of the shower, the product you work through your strands is crucial. It’s a good idea to keep away from heavy pomades and oils, which can weigh down fine hair. Instead, use a thickener to create the appearance of thicker hair. You can now blow-dry for a final look that is filled with body.

3. Do the flip while you blow-dry.


Have you ever taken the time to blow-dry your hair only to wonder why on earth it looks so flat? Well, did you do the flip? When you blow-dry your hair with your head flipped over, you help dry your strands with lift since your hair is hanging away from your head, creating lift at the roots. If you don’t like flipping your head, then just be sure to use a large round brush to pull your hair away from you head and blow-dry that way, as this can also help add the look of volume.

4. Add a Root Lifter to Your Styling Arsenal

Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT line for lightweight hold that adds another layer of bodifying action, perfect for fine, thin hair that can’t afford to be weighed down by heavy formulas. The L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray infuses body while offering heat protection from hot tools, while the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Haistyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray targets the roots for a teased-up volume effect. Meanwhile, the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse gives lifeless hair long-lasting volume.

5. Backcomb Your Crown


Most celebrity hairstyles with effortless-looking body have not only been teased but back-combed, too. To get the look, start by prepping with a root lifter, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, for a volumized base with workable texture. Then, separate a 1-inch section at the crown and comb to smooth out tangles. With one hand, firmly hold the section straight up and use your other hand to insert the comb mid-shaft. Run it down in a quick, short stroke to the scalp. When you reach the bottom, pull the comb out and repeat the movement until you reach the desired fullness. Continue around the crown. When you’re done, instead of just lightly smoothing the sections with a comb, brush all of the hair at the crown of your head straight back to get the back-combed look. Once everything looks just right, spritz with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray for hold.
