Having hair that looks thick and luscious is basically the ultimate hair goal, isn’t it? There’s just something glamorous about a voluminous-looking mane. But if your hair is thin, then you may feel like this just isn’t achievable for you. The good news is, there are a few hair hacks you can try to help temporarily make thin hair appear like it’s thicker—and these hacks don’t require much effort, making them easy to add to your hair care routine. Below, five hair hacks to help make thin hair look thicker. Try them out for yourself!

Thin Hair Hack #1: Chop Your Locks

One of the easiest ways to help create the illusion of thicker-looking hair is to chop off a few inches. Trimming your hair can get rid of length that could be weighing your hair down (the opposite of what you want if you’re looking for a more voluminous ‘do). As far as what type of style to ask for at the salon, consider telling your stylist to add layers to your hair, as these can help create the look of more volume. Your stylist can help you decide on a cut that will be most flattering to your features.

Thin Hair Hack #2: Change Your Part

A deep side part could be all that you need to help make your thin mane look a little more voluminous. Plus, it’s super-elegant. While middle parts have their time and place, a deep side part can help add volume—and it’s totally on-trend. Just flip your hair over to one side and you’re good to go!

Thin Hair Hack #3: Use a System of Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

When you have thin hair, it all starts with the products you use in the shower. Reach for a system of volumizing shampoo and conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner. The EverPure Sulfate-Free Hair and Scalp system helps weak, thinning hair look thicker while caring for the scalp. You can also try the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Volume Filler Thickening Conditioner.

Thin Hair Hack #4: Blow-Dry Your Hair with a Volumizing Styling Product

Ready to fake the look of voluminous hair? It’s time to stock your vanity with mousse—and upgrade your blow-drying technique. To start your at-home blowout, apply the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout damp hair. This lightweight mousse can help provide a long-lasting bouncy and voluminous look. Bonus: This mousse also provides heat protection and extra strong hold. Then, pick up a round brush and your blow-dryer and get to work, drying your hair section by section. Start with the front and sides of your hair, working your way to the back of your head.

Thin Hair Hack #5: Air Dry Your Hair

You can help enhance your hair’s natural texture—without the use of heat tools. And it turns out you can use a mousse to do it, just as you would before blow-drying your hair. After hopping out of the shower, apply an egg-sized dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse evenly through damp hair to help enhance waves and curls. Scrunch your hair, then let it hair dry.

Thin Hair Hack #6: Consider Getting Hair Extensions

Want to help make your thin hair look fuller? Hair extensions could be a good option for you. Whether you opt for clip-in extensions, tape extensions, or beaded extensions, they can help add the look of volume and fullness to your mane.
