Pumped and Plumped Up: Pro Tips on Adding Volume to Thinning Hair for Women

As women, hair fall may seem pretty normal - seeing as your fallen strands can be everywhere from your floor to your bed. But noticing visible signs can be a cause of panic. Noticed a receding hairline when looking in the mirror? Or maybe your scalp seems more visible? Hold up, take a deep breath. We’re here to help you through it. While some cases of hair loss may be unavoidable, there are some pro tips on how to add more volume to those fine, limp locks.   

TIP #1 - Get thicker hair with your basic routine

The first step to targeting hair loss is to swap your current routine to a tailored-fit anti hair loss routine. While using your general shampoo and conditioner won’t hurt your hair, it won’t be able to help you target your hair fall concern. 
You may try the Davines VOLU Shampoo, P1,090, a volume enhancing shampoo perfect for your fine or limp hair. Take your volume enhancing routine to the next level with Davines VOLU Hair Mist, P1,550 to further boost your hair’s body.

TIP #2 - Consider switching your hair’s parting line

If you’re looking for a quick and hassle-free styling tip, this one’s for you. One easy trick to keep your hair seemingly full of volume is to switch your part. Parting your hair at a particular side for quite some time can flatten your hair in their respective directions. Try parting your hair to the center or the other side and you’ll get an instant volume boost as you lift your roots up from the scalp.
Here’s a neat trick to help part your hair while adding some lift. Use a volumizer on damp hair specifically around the roots. A dry shampoo like  Bed Head by TIGI Oh Bee Hive!: Matte Dry Shampoo, P1,050,  offers sky high volume and should do the trick. 

TIP #3 - Thicken and curl those strands

Another secret to plumped up hair is really to focus on adding more thickness to those strands before a cold styling. We recommend cold styling for thinning hair sufferers because, when done correctly, it offers less breakage than using heat tools. For this grab AVEDA Thickening Tonic, P2,000, and gently run it through your towel-dried tresses with your fingers, while scrunching the bottom of your strands. It instantly thickens hair and expands strands from roots to ends.

TIP #4  - Layer ‘em up

As the weather gets colder, it’s not just you that needs layers. Apart from products and styles, a particular cut could influence the way your hair looks. That’s why when it comes to getting a volumizing cut, think: layer, layer, and more layers! Layers give your hair body and dimension as compared to a straight cut, making your hair look thicker and fuller.

TIP #5 - Add volume or texture

Another secret to styling for thicker looking hair is to apply a volumizer, a texturizer, or both. Admittedly you may need to experiment a bit to find the right one for you hair type, but generally speaking volumizers offer a smoother finish, while texturizers offer more grip for a more tousled effect. 
 For texture, try ​​L'Oreal Tecni.Art Beach Waves, P1,299, a sea salt spray that texturizing salt spray gives that gives textured body to hair without being rough to the touch.

TIP #6 - Lift those roots

This last hair tip is a famous trick among hair stylists, and we totally get why. While a “high cranial top” hairstyle may not ring a bell when you hear it, you’ve surely seen it on different celebrities, such as Jennie of Blackpink and Kendall Jenner.
So what is a high cranial top? This style is when the hair from the top of your scalp to your hairline is proportional to your forehead height. In simpler terms, a high cranial top gives you volume at the top of your head, making your hair look thicker and fuller, it also helps elongate the face making it appear slimmer.

One cranial top hairstyle is a half up high pony. First, section and part your hair to your preference. Proceed to lift the roots of your hair in the middle section and tease it or comb it backwards to give it volume. Tie that section up into a high ponytail, while making sure to leave some hair down. To amp up the volume, gently hold your ponytail while pinching or pulling the hair at the top middle section. And viola!
