Listen To Your Salon Stylist: 8 Chemical-Free Ways To Volumize Fine Hair Naturally

Posted on: 7 June 2016

Do you have thin, fine or limp hair? If you're concerned about hair products that contain damaging chemicals, listen to your hair salon stylist who may have some excellent tips for adding body and volume to your tresses. Before you resort to wearing hair extensions or wigs, try these tried-and-true tips to volumize your hair naturally:

1. Add Baking Soda to Your Wash Routine

Baking soda cleanses your hair thoroughly. It may help rid soap residue and oils, both of which can weigh down your hair and make it look limp and lifeless. By getting rid of the trapped grease and oil naturally, your fine hair will appear more bouncy and full.

2. Change Up Your Part

Do you constantly part your hair on the same side day after day? If so, you may be flattening out your hair unwittingly. Next time you style your hair, part your hair on the opposite side,. You may be amazed at the difference it makes in making your hair appear fuller and more volumized.

3. Try a Root-Lifting Effect

Because thin, fine hair tends to look flat at the roots, lift the roots naturally. To do this, you'll want to use a round hairbrush. Simply wrap small sections of hair at the roots before you blow dry your damp hair.

4. Avoid the Temptation to Wash Your Hair Daily

Over-washing your hair may strip it of its natural oils, making it brittle and more prone to breakage. Split ends seem to look more accentuated on dry or fine hair types.

5. Try a Different Haircut

Ask your hair salon stylist to cut your hair in layers. This often makes thin hair appear fuller. A short "bob" cut is ideal for those with fine hair. Also, shorter hair is less likely be be weighed down and more likely to have more body.

6. Accessorize for Added Body

Hair accessories can be your new best friend. Ask your hair stylist for products that may add body to your fine hair. Try clips, hairbands and scrunchies, all of which may lift up your hair at the roots, in back or anywhere your hair tends to lie flat.

7. Nourish Your Hair Naturally

Nourished hair will appear fuller and healthy. Try a homemade remedy such as egg whites and extra virgin olive oil, mixed together. Apply the solution onto your scalp and let it stay for 20 minutes before rinsing completely. The protein and nutrients may help prevent hair loss in the future.

8. Massage Your Scalp

Doing so will improve circulation. This is important for thinning hair. You might wan to massage your scalp with aloe vera gel or almond oil, as these natural remedies may help combat thinning hair.


A New Summer Style

A couple of months ago, my beautiful, intelligent, and talented sister married her best friend in a simple, church ceremony. On this special day, a hair stylist curled my hair and pinned it on top of my head. Because I normally keep my hair short, I had to grow it out for a few months before the wedding in order to achieve the look I wanted. Now that the wedding is over, my long hair is starting to aggravate me. Due to the summer heat and humidity, it is beginning to break off and look frizzy! I am in desperate need of a new summer style. On this blog, you will discover the best types of haircuts for the steamy, summer months. Enjoy your new look!
