What is fine hair? 

Fine hair describes either individual strands that have a small diameter or an overall lack of hair on the head. When hair is thin, it’s more likely to become greasy and lack natural bounce, resulting in limp, lifeless strands. 

Thin hair can be caused by: 

  • Genetics 
  • Ageing 
  • Poor diet 
  • Over-styling 
  • Hair dye 
  • Chemical based products

How to make hair thicker

While you can’t change the natural texture of your hair follicles, you can try a number of things to make hair appear thicker and reduce breakage for a healthier, fuller-looking head of hair.  

Your thin strands could be a result of a few causes, so we recommend trying a combination of different tips, tricks and hair care products for the best results. 

Choose a hair thickening shampoo and conditioner 

Wondering how to add volume to fine hair? Meet our volumising hair products. 

Using the right products on your hair is crucial in improving its condition. The best hair thickening shampoo and conditioner should gently nourish hair, remove excess oil and add volume. 

Our Volumising Shampoo naturally boosts volume and builds fullness into fine hair for an overall fuller look. Rice Protein helps to improve hair strength, while a blend of Pineapple, Mango and Papaya Extracts nourish the scalp for a soft and silky look. 

Pair with our Volumising Conditioner to energise hair with volume and bounce for an effortlessly weightless finish. Free from harsh chemicals that can cause damage, this hair thickening conditioner promotes healthy-looking hair with a vibrant, glossy finish.  

Look after your scalp 

A damaged scalp will only produce damaged hair, so taking proper care of it can make all the difference. Alongside changing your products, we recommend gently washing your hair 2-3 times a week with lukewarm water to avoid stripping the scalp of its natural oils and drying out strands.  

Drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day can also help to replenish hydration levels for a healthy scalp that isn’t too dry or flaky. 

Good nutrition 

A healthy diet can help hair to stay strong and healthy. Make sure you have a nutrient-rich diet, including protein, fatty acids and Omega-3. Some of the best foods to eat for a nutrient-rich diet include: 

  • Eggs 
  • Salmon 
  • Nuts 
  • Beans 
  • Yogurt 

Take care when styling 

Over-styling can cause unwanted breakage, which can lead to strands falling out more easily. The best tip is to avoid using heat on your hair when possible. If you can, let it air-dry instead of blow-drying, as well as putting it in plaits instead of curling.  

While using no heat would be ideal, we know it’s not always realistic. When you do need to use heat on your hair, we recommend using a heat protector to avoid unwanted damage. 

Tactical haircuts 

If you’re wondering how to make fine hair look thicker, a tactical haircut is the way to go. A blunt cut can make hair appear thicker and fuller, while excessive layering can remove volume. When you do go for a trim, just ask to have the smallest amount off the bottom to remove dead ends so strands can grow more quickly. 

Hair treatments 

Treatments can help hair grow quicker and become thicker and healthier-looking. Our Thickening Spritz uses a blend of Soy and Rice Protein to help strengthen hair from root to end to prevent breakage and instantly add thickness and volume to limp hair. Pineapple, Papaya and Mango help to provide lightweight hydration without weighing hair down for a healthier, smooth finish. 

If you are trying a product or ingredient for the first time, we always recommend a patch test first.
