How to increase the volume of your hair

Professional Advice for Adding Volume to Your Hair

Are you struggling to add volume to your thin hair? You’re not alone! Many people with fine hair often feel like they’re fighting a losing battle against flat, lifeless locks. But the good news is that some simple styling tricks can help add volume to fine hair. With the right care and a few styling tricks, you can easily take some weight off your hair and revive those limp and lifeless locks.  

If you want to learn how to add volume to fine hair, keep reading! Chilli Couture will help you with some of our best tips and tricks to add volume to fine hair.  

How to tell if your hair is oily or dry?  

Not sure if your hair is dry or oily? Here’s how to tell:  

Wash your hair before bed and let it air dry overnight. In the morning, press a tissue against your scalp. If the tissue has a large oily stain, you have oily hair. If there are only a few small stains, you have normal hair. If there is an oily stain, but your ends are dry, you have combination hair. And finally, if there is no oil stain, your hair is dry.  

Hair care products for finer textures  

Make your hair look its best by choosing hair care products that will enhance your hair’s texture. Avoid using volume-destroying ingredients like silicones in your hair care products. Your hair is far too fine to handle large-diameter hair shaft clingers like these. At Chilli Couture, you can find organic hair care products that are free of any type of silicone. By adding Chilli Couture hair products to your daily hair care routine, you can add volume to thin hair without adding excessive stress to your thin hair.  

Chilli Couture also has a quick and easy dry shampoo option to boost your hair’s volume. If you’re dealing with flat hair on vacation, a quick spray of dry shampoo can add fluff and help you get chic, beachy waves in no time!  

Using shampoo and conditioner correctly  

Many women with fine hair know the struggle of greasy roots. While shampooing can help to reduce the oils, it’s more likely that your ends only need conditioning. The key is finding a balance that works best for your hair type; everyone will need to experiment to see what gets the job done.   

Since fine hair is more susceptible to knots and tangles, you should use a volumising, light conditioner in the shower. Make sure you only apply conditioner to the bottom two-thirds of your hair – if you condition your scalp, your flat hair will look flatter.  

Texture and volume-boosting styling tips 

If you’re looking for ways to add texture and volume to your fine hair, check out these expert styling tips:  

  • Gently teasing your roots can add lift to your crown.  
  • Volumising shampoos often work by roughing up the outer scales of your hair shafts. However, this can be damaging to your hair over time. Instead, try using a gentler shampoo made specifically for fine hair. This will help add body without damaging your delicate hair cuticle.  
  • Get a volumising haircut by adding a few layers.  
  • Apply shampoo lightly to the scalp but focus more on the ends. One quick shampoo should do the trick. Apply conditioner to the ends only so the hair doesn’t fall flat from the weight at the roots.  
  • Do a gentle tease at the root area with a wide-tooth comb or a finer teasing comb to give the appearance of full hair where you want it.
