The hair is freshly washed. They smell wonderfully like our favorite shampoo, are handy, and feel really good. But when you look in the mirror, do you still get the feeling that your mane is only half as full as it feels? The reason why this feeling creeps up on you is a very simple one, but one that we won't get to right away: It may be due to the color of your hair. Yeah, not kidding. Some hair colors make our hair look thinner than it actually is. We'll tell you in which colors this phenomenon occurs and at the same time have optimal alternatives for you.
The same color allover can look absolutely gorgeous on naturally voluminous hair, but the look is too monotonous for thin hair. Much better: set highlights AND lowlights! Several fine nuances in the hair make it look much more dynamic - and therefore fuller.
Blonde hair has the optical effect of being thinner than it actually is. This makes highlight techniques such as face-framing or well-set balayage strands, which visually conjure up more volume in blonde hair, all the more important. Your hairdresser can use different tones and dyeing techniques to give the basic hair color even more drive and to make your mane appear fuller on the side. The optical stimuli give the hair more structure and round off your look.
Returning to our natural hair color because the desire to dye is waning is something we can only understand too well. However, very dark, high-contrast approaches are also responsible for the fact that the hair looks much thinner. To prevent this, you should use so-called shadow roots - whether blond, brown, or red. This means less striking, more delicate transitions from colored hair to natural hair color.
Thin hair usually looks even thinner at the tips. Therefore, you should make sure to have your tips trimmed regularly.
Dry shampoo works like an invisible hair boost. If you have the feeling that your hair looks much too thin, apply some dry shampoo to the roots, wash everything well, and, hey presto, your hair will look more voluminous again.
We usually wear our hair on the same side or only in the middle. If the hair is particularly flat, part it differently. The other side still has a lot of volumes ready - your hair looks like it has just been styled.
