Hubert de Givenchy was once quoted as saying, â%u20AC%u0153Hairstyle is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself.â%u20AC Women with fine hair understand the struggle better than anyoneâ%u20AC%u201Dadding volume to fine hair can take a while to get right. Here are a few tips you can keep in mind.
Never forget that your hair, at least at the very tip, is a living tissue and it responds to your nutritional intake just like any other part of your body. Foods like spinach, eggs, avocados, tofu, salmon, and kale, which are rich in biotin, protein, zinc and iron, can help to support healthier hair growth. Many experts also recommend getting a good serving of berries each day thanks to their vitamins and antioxidant properties. What should you try to avoid? The usual suspects: coffee, alcohol and tobacco products.
Itâ%u20AC%u2122s Not Always Normal
Hairdressers are often the first people to point out that fine hair is actually thinning hair. If you think you might be losing more hair than normalâ%u20AC%u201Dcontributing to a lack of volumeâ%u20AC%u201Dconsider going to your doctor for a check-up.
Blow Dry Upside Down
It might sound obvious, but itâ%u20AC%u2122s worth a try. Blow drying your hair upside down encourages healthy volume, rather than lying close to the scalp. Always use a round, flexible brush rather than a flat, hard brushâ%u20AC%u201Dthis encourages slight waves in your hair, creating the illusion of thick locks. Volumizing products can also be used to help â%u20AC%u0153setâ%u20AC the hair in this position, so that it doesnâ%u20AC%u2122t fall back down over the length of the day.
Part-y Over Here
If you havenâ%u20AC%u2122t changed up your part in years, nowâ%u20AC%u2122s a good time to switch it over to the other side. Changing over your part will provide instant lift and give your hair a bit of volume.
Opt for a Volumizing Haircut
If itâ%u20AC%u2122s been a while since you consulted with your hairstylist, you may want to explore your options for a different haircut. You might be surprised to find out that experts usually discourage long, one-length cuts for women with fine hairâ%u20AC%u201Dthese cuts tend to emphasize flatness and look the opposite of thick and luscious. Instead, medium-to-short length cuts, with volumizing layers, help to bring out the best in your follicles.
