8 Effective Ways You Can Maximise Hair Volume

Post by Taislany Gomes • August 24, 2021 • Other

The right hairstyle is an essential part of completing your look. Without the best style for what you want to achieve, you can feel deflated and self-conscious. But a great hairstyle will boost your confidence, enhance your entire ensemble and turn heads as you go by. There are numerous techniques for treating your hair, and one of the most common problems is that of volume.

Hair Tonics and Treatments

There are many products on the market for adding volume to your hair, and for the most part, they work well. However, volume can be challenging to achieve because of thinning hair. While pattern baldness is more common in men, it can also affect women. Topical hair loss treatment with tonics like Minoxidil is an excellent way to stimulate hair growth. Treatments usually come in shampoo or liquid form and can show remarkable results after around 12 weeks. 

Volume Filling Applications

Hair stimulation treatment can be enhanced with volume filling sprays. Fillers are excellent for concealing bald patches, particularly at the front and sides of your head – common areas of thinning hair for females. Thickening sprays are also available and can boost volume instantly by applying keratin to follicles. Keratin is the protein that hair is made from and is also used in bonded hair extensions with excellent results.

Know When to Wash

Depending on your hair type, you may not need to wash it every day. However, many women actually wash their hair too often, which can cause it to dry out, especially when washed with hot water and then treated with heat. Heat such as from hot rollers, straighteners or curlers and dryers. Your hair type determines how often you should wash with shampoo:

  • Normal hair: can be washed whenever you like.
  • Dry hair: should be washed no more than twice per week.
  • Oily hair: will benefit from daily washing.

However, your lifestyle will also determine when you should wash. For example, if you visit the gym every day, your hair will likely require cleaning more often due to sweat.

Volumizing Shampoos

Once you know how often to wash your hair, you could consider volumizing shampoos instead of general shampoo types. Volumizing shampoos work by applying active ingredients to your hair, such as collagen, keratin and caffeine to your scalp and follicles. This reduces the build-up of matter and enhances the thickness, fullness and bounce of your hair. Volume shampoos are suitable for all hair types and styles, such as fine or curly hair and include Oribe and Playa.

Blowout Spray

While at home, you can maximise your volume and hold your style for longer by using blowout spray. Blowout sprays are an excellent and cheaper alternative to a stylist visit – perfect for when you don’t have much time or running low on money. They smooth out your hair when blow-drying and even dry it in half the time. You simply spray onto damp hair and dry it as usual. Your hair will stay volumized all day when used with other volumizing products.

A Stylist Blowout

Of course, if you have the time and money, there is nothing quite like a professional blowout for fabulous looking hair. For around $200 and 45 minutes to one hour, you can leave a salon looking and feeling like a Hollywood celebrity. Additionally, you get the relaxing experience of having a professional wash your hair with the right products. A good blowout costs a lot of money, but it will last for around 3 to 5 days. Perfect for a special occasion.

Hair Extensions

A popular method of achieving instant volume is by using hair extensions. There are various types, all of which yield different results. But essentially, the more expensive options achieve the best volume. Paste and clip-on extensions are the most common type and should be applied by a stylist. However, they can pull on the hair and cause losses, as can microbeads. For maximum volume with minimal damage, you should consider keratin bonding extensions.

Brushing Techniques

An overlooked cause of hair loss and maintenance is the brushing technique that you use. Starting at the root and then brushing all the way down to the tip can pull out hairs. Instead, holding your hair, you should start at the ends of your hair to untangle any knots or frays. Then work from the root all the way down, taking care of the tips. You can achieve extra volume by using a heated brush, but these can dry out your hair and cause other issues like fly-aways and frizz.
