7 Hair Hacks to Make Thin Hair Look Thicker

Blow drying blonde hair
A big head of voluminous, thick hair is the beauty dream. But depending on your hair's natural texture, adding volume can be a struggle. If you have thin hair, the key to pumping up the volume and boosting fullness is to create the illusion of thicker hair. With the right tips, hacks, and hairstyles every hair type can look more voluminous than it is. If you have thin or thinning hair and want big volume pay attention. We’re breaking down the best advice for making hair look thicker ahead.

1. Use the right shampoo

Big hair starts in the shower with a volumizing shampoo. Wash your hair every other day with Davines VOLU Shampoo for lasting body and volume.

2. Swap in a clarifying shampoo

If you have thinner hair, a build of product residue can weigh your strands down even more. Clarifying shampoos are deep cleansers that aim to remove residue and buildup. If you use styling products, a monthly detox treatment with a clarifying shampoo will help restore your hair’s volume and shine.

3. Avoid the wrong conditioner and apply only to the ends

Avoid conditioners with deep conditioning benefits — these will make your thin hair feel flatter. Use a lightweight conditioner and only apply it to the ends of your hair; steer clear of your roots or it’ll weigh down the entire strand. Davines DEDE Conditioner is designed to soften strands without weighing them down.

4. Style your hair with mousse

When it comes to styling products, you can’t beat mousse for making thin hair look thicker. For extra volume start with damp hair. Spray a golf-ball-size amount of volume-boosting mousse into your palm. Take a comb and run it over the mousse to get the product on the bristles. Comb through from the mid-lengths to the ends and style.

5. Incorporate dry shampoo

Not only does dry shampoo refresh your thin hair, but it also adds volume. After shaking well, spray dry shampoo directly into your roots in small amounts. Let it sit for about a minute, then massage it in with your fingers. To increase volume, use a cold shot of air from a blow dryer.

6. Blow-dry upwards

When you blow-dry your hair, ensure you direct the airflow underneath the root and upwards, rather than blowing down on top of the head.

7. Only use a round brush at the end of styling

Round brushes are the best for creating volume with a blowout. After using a paddle brush to blow dry your wet hair to about 80 percent, flip your head over, and switch to a round brush. Use a diffuser on the end of your dryer to separate and lift strands as you style.
