Fake it Till You Make it!

Thick hair--everyone wants it. The good thing is that no matter what your hair type is, you can give the illusion of having thick, luscious hair with a few simple steps.

  • Fake thick hair by using a volume enhancing shampoo and conditioner. I absolutely love using L’Oreal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.  Avoid shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizers at all costs because they weigh hair down.
  • Use a thickening gel or mousse. I use Paul Mitchell Extra Body Thicken Up, but there are tons of similar products out there.  They definitely make a huge difference and make your hair appear fuller.
  • Blow dry your hair from root to tip with a round brush. Turn your head over several times while blow drying to add lift.
  • Tease hair (yes, it's okay to do!) at the crown of your head for added appearance of full, thick hair. Don’t overdue this--you'll look like a bad 80s flashback-- but a little can add volume and thickness.
  • Choose hairstyles that flatter fine hair like a medium, classic bob. The shorter your hair, the more volume you have. Also, a shoulder-grazing cut angled in long layers around the face is super flattering.
