We always want what we can’t have...we are women after all. And people with naturally fine hair have always yearned for thicker lush locks. I myself am one of those yearning ladies. Over the years I’ve tried and tested many so called miracle products and styling techniques to give myself that va-va-voom look I always craved.
While you can’t change the natural texture of your hair you can cheat your way to thicker hair and here are my best tips on how to achieve Victoria Secret mega hair.
Cut: It’s amazing the difference a great cut can make. Especially those with wispy ends from over processing. A simple trim with a strong baseline can give the illusion of thicker hair.
Cleansing: I’m not a huge fan of volumising shampoo and conditioner as I feel they always leave a hard dry effect to hair. Instead I’d opt for a gentle clarifying product such as Alfaparf Purifying Shampoo that will lift out any deposits that are weighing hair down.
Styling Product: It astounds me the amount of people that message me saying how stressed they are that their hair is too flat yet they don’t apply any styling products. One of my absolute favourite thickening products is Wow Raise the Root blowdry spray. Applying this to damp hair before
blowdrying will create density and thickness. I also find when I use this I also get an extra day out of my blowdry. Perfect for the lazy gal like me!
Dry Shampoo: Many people don’t know that dry shampoo can also be used as a styling product. I’d apply on the day I blowdry my hair to give root lift. My absolute favourite is Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo which also comes in light and dark tones.
Tools: Although they may seem old fashioned, Velcro rollers are fantastic for lifting roots and setting waves in hair. After tonging a section of your hair wrap it around a Velcro and leave for at least 20 minutes until hair is fully cooled.
Finishing Sprays: Hairspray can look pretty tacky and give a sticky effect to very fine hair. Using Moroccan Oil Dry Texture Spray will give hair the right amount of grit to help give a softer thick look.
