It is important to choose the right products for your hair. If you want to increase your volume, there are specific volumizing shampoos. Remember to also moisturize your hair with a mask or conditioner.
To add some volume to your hairstyles like updos or ponytails, backcombing is a good option. To do this, use a comb about 5 cm from the roots and then brush against the direction of the growth towards the root. You can repeat the operation 3 to 5 times maximum. No need to do it more times, it could damage the hair.
It is better not to use heat so as not to damage the hair. However, if you want to blow-dry to give volume to your hair, favor lukewarm air and use a round brush. Remember to work the root well to create a rounded effect. Finally, if the hair is too thin, do not use nourishing serums or creams, but prefer a styling mousse that will give substance to your hair.
A shorter haircut accentuates the volume of the hair. Moreover, it is advisable to cut them regularly, about every two months. This indeed makes it possible to boost the root volume.
Food has a noticeable impact on the skin but also on the hair. Thus, certain foods make it possible to nourish and strengthen the hair follicles thanks to the blood flow to the scalp, which thus promotes the growth of thick and resistant hair. For this, you can favor green vegetables and those containing beta carotene, two vitamins that accentuate growth and thick hair.
Other sources essential for the health of the hair: proteins, iron, or even essential fatty acids that can be found in eggs or lean meats which promote the production of keratin.
To absorb sebum from the hair and add volume to your cut, dry shampoo is a good solution. Quick and effective, just apply it to the roots and leave it on for a few minutes before removing it. Another advantage: dry shampoo or texturizing powder also helps to coat the hair and provide it with some support.
