- Wrong use of hair conditioner
Too much hair conditioner will make your hair greasy and heavy, and using hair conditioner along the entire length will make it difficult to achieve volume. So, use just enough conditioner to untangle your hair. Another big mistake which makes your hair look thinner and your hairstyle flat is if you don’t rinse conditioner well enough from your hair. You should rinse your hair until the water is completely clear, and once a week it’s recommended that you use cleansing shampoo to prevent your hair from getting greasy.
- Using hair straightener on the ends
The role of a straightening iron is to straighten the hair, which makes it look thinner than it really is. The detail which makes your thin hair look thinner and lifeless, as well as separates the strands is straightening the ends of your hair. The trick that helps avoid such an effect is to curl your ends inwards, which makes your hair look more voluminous and thicker.
- Straight haircuts
Long hair cut in a straight haircut is heavy and its weight pulls the hair down while taking away its volume. The easiest way to achieve the look of thick and voluminous hair is to cut it in layers, which will frame your face and make it look luscious.
- Hair thinned with a razor
There are many different tools hairstylists use, and so there are many different hairstyling techniques. Many hairstylists use both scissors and razor for cutting hair, but that has a good effect only on thick and firm hair. Thinning the normal hair with a razor reduces its volume and creates sharp ends, which makes your hair look thin and your hairstyle lifeless.
- Avoiding styling foam
No matter how you dry your hair, with a hair straightener, brush or you let it dry naturally, without the use of styling foam it will look thinner than it really is. Using hair foam is a trick that will help you create volume and thickness, while keeping your hairstyle look natural. The basic rule is to apply foam to hair roots and ends while your hair is still wet.
- Drying your hair from root to end
Drying hair from root to end, or straight along the hair growth line, takes away the natural volume and thickness of hair. In order to make your hair thicker, dry it in a following fashion: tilt your hair down, dry the root with hot air and blow cool air into the ends. This way you will avoid creating electricity and hairs will separate and male your hairstyle more voluminous.
- Coloring your hair only one shade
Naturally, every hair contains up to several shades of its basic color, and if you color it only one shade, it will look thin and somewhat boring. The solution for you is one of the latest coloring trends, such as flamboyage and ombre techniques, where hairstylists color your hair several shades of one basic color. Besides these techniques, there is also an excellent solution to make your hair liven up – highlights a shade lighter than your natural hair.
