Tips and Tricks for Making Your Hair Look Thicker

1 - Get a blunt cut. Blunt cut gives a fake illusion that your hairs are fuller than they are. Blunt cut refers to a hairstyle where all the hairs are of the same length. 

2 - Keeping your hair short can help in adding more volume to your hair. Trim your hair regularly to avoid split ends. Split ends can make your hair look plain and flat. Shoulder-length hair is considered perfect for the fine-haired ones.

3 - Part your hair on a different side than you usually do. If you generally part your hair on the left side, try parting it on the right side. It gives a natural fluffiness to your hair and makes it look voluptuous. 

4 - Curling can add some extra texture to your hair in the form of firm and soft beachy waves. Just don’t forget to use a heat protectant. Alternate between curling towards and away from your face. Run fingers through your curls to open them up. This way, you would end up adding volume to your hair in the form of these beautiful curls.

5 - Is your hair dry, smooth, and straight, or if you don’t love the polished blow-dry look, then try adding some volumizing product to your hair. Blow-dry on the lowest setting; by doing so, you're activating the volumizing product, which will make your hair appear fuller. 

Even though that’s going to need ages to detangle, but by doing so, you’re adding an extra lift to your hair that would make any professional or amateur hairstyle look amazing. Finish with sprinkling the ends with a texturizing spray for an extra boost.

6 - Are thinning hair, reducing hairlines, and bald spots some of the concerns you face daily? Just take an eye shadow that’s a similar color to your hair color and apply it under the concerned areas for a fuller appearance. If you have darker hair, you can even use some artificial product fibers to conceal and camouflage thinning.

7 - Highlights and other trending hair coloring techniques add more depth and dimension to thin hair. Hair color makes the cuticle and shaft of the hair slightly rough and plump, enabling the hair naturally flat to hold a style longer than it actually would. 

8 - Dry shampooing might seem obvious, but most people don’t use dry shampoo on a day-to-day basis. They only dry shampoo when their hair is dirty. But the truth is you can use this almost every single day. You might feel like it can dry your hair out a little bit, but without it, your hair would just be so flat and ordinary. You can spray it all over your hair every day.
