How To Get Your Thin Hair To Look Thicker
was not long ago that thin hair was basically a style death
sentence. Those days, however, are over. All it takes is
a little self-education and creativity to make your thin
hair look thick, stylish, and healthy. It just takes the
right cut, style, and care to get the hair you want even
if it is thin.
is fine hair, though? Not everyone knows exactly
what is meant by thin hair, so make sure you know what
you have before you try to style it. There is also a definite
difference between fine hair and thin hair, which will
make a difference in your style. Fine is a reference to
the diameter of each single strange. You can have a lot
of hair on your head and it can still be fine. Thin or
thick hair is in reference to how much hair you have. If
you do have fine hair, though, you will be susceptible
to thin hair as well. Age, stress, medications, and diet
can also have an impact on the thickness or fineness of
first way to get your thin hair looking thicker (or
fatter) is by getting just the right haircut. There are
five haircuts that serve the thin and fine hair types best.
Of course, you will have to think about which look is best
for both your hair type and the shape of your face, though.
The first cut to think about is the bob
are many variations, but no matter which one you choose,
a bob will tend to make your hair look much thicker and
healthier. A longer bob will work better with a fuller
face, so you will have to figure out which is best for
The next cut you might think about is the
chop. This is
a basic bob-length hair style only with irregular ends.
The chop will give sparse and thin hair style and shape
that will be easy for you to maintain as well. Shape and
style will always give hair more body.
Thirdly, think about a cap
cut. This will work best if
you have a very petite or oval shaped face. This all bangs
look will give your hair body without taking away all the
length. It's not for everyone, but it is a good look for
the right face.
Another popular cut for those with thin or fine hair is
the crop. A crop is any short, tapered haircut. There are
problems with the cut, however; if you are over 45 it can
do unflattering things to your chin and neckline. Also,
the crop will put focus on your eyes, so flawed skin may
draw more attention with a crop.
You may also consider a
lightly layered mid-length look.
Not everyone wants to chop off all their length, so this
is a good alternative to the short cuts. Just brushing
the shoulder, this look is on a slightly diagonal-forward
moving line at the sides. Then, a few light layers help
provide volume after drying of the hair.
In addition to or instead of a cut that will help your
hair to appear thicker, there are technological
advances that will allow you to thicken your hair. The latest focus
has been on ways to fatten up individual strands of hair.
Initially, these products used proteins that were infused
into the cortex of the hair to fatten it. The problem was
that some got really sticky if you overused it, but it
did work. In today's market, however, there are new and
improved hair thickeners. Most even come in complete lines
so that you will have a thickening shampoo, conditioner,
and styles so that you get triple treatment on fine, thin
or thinning hair. As with anything, some work better than
others, so you will want to shop around for the ones that
work best for you.
Thin, thinning, or fine hair does not mean you can't have
healthy and thick looking hair. The key is to acknowledge
what your hair type is and stick to styles, cuts, and products
that will help you look your best. Consult a stylist on
what might be the best looking cut, and shop around for
the right hair care products for you. With the right care,
treatment, and style you can have a thick full look with
