How to give thin hair volume

My thin hair sits flat, and looks boring, no matter what I try to do with it. How can I give it some oomph?
Having fine hair can be a challenge to style every day. Investing in the right products, cut and styling tools can work wonders to add volume, thickness and body to thin hair.
Ranges like NIOXIN have key ingredients like Bio AMP proteins add thickness from inside the cuticle to amplify hair texture and volume. The result is a healthier, fuller head of hair, with more body and bounce.


Are bob hairstyles a good idea when you have thin hair?
Although it very much depends on the shape of the face and person, a bob hairstyle can be great for those with fine hair to create the illusion of more body and fullness. Requesting light layers in the bob can help to frame the face and add greater texture and volume around the crown.

Is it possible to have funky braids with thin hair? I’m worried they will look limp.

It’s probably best to avoid smaller, intricate braids as these can cause added stress on fine hair and lead to breakage. However a classic French braid works well for thin hair, and I would recommend starting lower down on the back of your head to help make it appear less limp. Hair clip-ins can also be a great way of adding thickness to the bulk of your plait.

What is the difference between thin hair & fine hair?

This is a tricky one, as many people (even in the industry) regard these as the same thing. However, for those that split the two, here are the basic differences:

1. Fine hair relates to size of each individual hair cuticle, with the diameter being smaller in size than average

2. Whereas, thin hair refers to the actual amount of individual hair strands on one persons head – and being thin, means there are less strands on the scalp of that person compared to normal hair.

What hairstyle would you recommend for thin hair?

It is actually quite hard for people with thin hair to find a style that does not require a lot of work each day. As a starting point it’s important to start with the right base, for example an advanced hair thickening system that adds greater fullness and body.
When opting for a cut I would suggest layers as a great option to provide the appearance of volume and layering in balance with the length of your hair will also offer the illusion of increased fullness.
For styling tools, investing in volumising stylers such as hot rollers and curlers are great tools for adding instant volume and glamour to any look.

    I'd avoid all hair products that will weigh your hair down - those with hydrogenated castor oil - or any oil. Blow dry your hair upside down and try and avoid spilt ends that will make your hair look straw-like. Good luck. Hope that helps some.

    My hair is fine and i have finally had my hair layered at the back and sides, the difference has been amazing. I look like i have a head of much thicker hair than i actually do. I suggest having a chat with a good hairdresser.

    A great cut adds volume. Maybe if very thin - wear a wig or hat.
