If you have curly hair, you want straight hair. Anyone with straight hair would like more waves. Anyone with thin hair dreams of volume and a beautiful, full mane. We can't tell you a miracle cure that you can use to stimulate and maximize your hair growth overnight, but we do have important tips for you that will at least visually thicken your hair.
As hair expert and trainer at ColorProof, Erica Conan, told fellow WhoWhatWear, choosing the right hair color can make your hair appear fuller than it actually is. Here is the hair color do's and don'ts for thin hair:
Although mono-coloring is one of the biggest hair trends for spring, anyone with thin hair should steer clear - especially if you're the type of person who's a little lax about touch-ups. Different color dimensions are better. Different tones are colored using various highlighting techniques, which make your hair appear fuller and more voluminous. Also, it's not a problem if your hair grows back. On the contrary: due to the different color dimensions, your approach is hardly noticeable and blends naturally into the hair color.
Extra tip: If you also work some dry shampoo into the hair roots, you can use the styling product to create extra volume.
If the roots are too present and the transition too strong, the hair will appear thinner. Slightly blurred transitions, which your hairdresser conjures up in your hair using a special dyeing technique, are better. These shades at the roots add volume and create a 3D effect that gives the hair visual volume.
Extra tip: You should never brush your hair too roughly, as this will cause it to lose its elasticity and quickly appear thinner.
Precisely placed highlights can trick the eye and color the hair to make it appear fuller. Face framing, blonde babylights, or hair coloring techniques like balayage can trick you into adding volume.
Extra tip: When drying your hair, be careful not to blow dry it too hot. Then they lose moisture too quickly and tend to collapse.
Erica Conan advises anyone who wants their thinning hair to look fuller while only going for one shade, to go for a hair color that is as natural as possible. "Shades that totally change your type need more care. If you keep your hair color as natural as possible, you avoid very light or very dark roots." And when in doubt, they make the hair look thinner. So it's best to go for an all-natural look.
Extra tip: A color shampoo keeps your hair fresh for a long time and lets it shine permanently.
