How To Make Your Hair Look Thicker: 6 Steps
Make your fullness fantasies a reality, regardless of how many follicles you were born with.
1. Start in the Shower
Cleanse and condition with body-boosting formulas like Nexxus Diametress Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner, made with elastin protein and green tea extract, and is an especially great shampoo and conditioner for fine hair. This powerful system increases the thickness of each strand by 17 percent.
2. Apply Dry Shampoo
Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist absorbs oil and brushes out easily, leaving the illusion of just-washed fullness and bounce.
3. Embrace Mousse
“Apply Nexxus Mousse Plus before a blowout to retain volume, plus, you’ll have more control than you would with a serum," says Nexxus Global Creative Director Kevin Mancuso.
4. Add a Few Rollers
They're an easy way to add body to hair. For longer-lasting fullness and shape, leave them in for 15 to 20 minutes.
5. Be Hands-on with Your Roots
"To keep as much lift at the base as possible, start with a brushless blowout and use your fingers to hold the roots up while you're blow drying," says Mancuso.
6. Fill in the Gaps
If thin patches around your hairline are an issue, try Lona Vigi’s (celebrity stylist for Nexxus New York Salon Care) trick: "I like to use a matte shadow palette like Anastasia Brow Kit to color in sections where you can see the scalp. It really makes the hair look thicker," she explains.
