This ones for you, my fine haired friends...
Hey Boutique Babes, I'm back to talk about more tips for fine hair! As a fine hair specialist, I'm constantly asked “What can I do about my fine hair?” or “How do I make my hair look fuller?” So without any further ado… here are my top 6 hacks to make your fine hair appear fuller!
Dimension is achieved when there are two or more contrasting colors in the hair. We see dimension a lot when it comes to highlights or basic balayage because we don’t lighten every piece of hair. So how does dimension make fine hair appear fuller? Well, it's almost like an optical illusion. Having multiple colors in your hair can actually trick your eyes into seeing more hair when in reality it's the same amount.
Using products + treatments with plumping agents in them is key to making your hair fuller.
Body.mass is a new favorite of mine— a leave-in plumping treatment that adds fullness and thickness while also strengthening your hair. It's made using eyelash thickening and lengthening technology. All you do is spray into damp hair, brush through to evenly distribute and dry + style as normal! My favorite KM wash/rinse combo is 100% Balancing.Wash + Plumping.Rinse! This combination is perfect because it includes a wash that will balance the PH levels of your scalp which helps regulate oil production and a rinse that helps densify and plump your hair strand to help feel thicker!
Okay If you know me, you KNOW this is my holy grail product! I don’t think I’ve ever been more passionate about a product. So if I haven’t already told you, this is a dry powder texturizing spray. It creates spaces between each individual hair strand to give you volume + texture. Just lift your hair and spray into— rather than on your hair for extra fluff!
Weight in your hair can be caused by two different things: Heavy products such as oils or mousse OR having too much weight at your ends. This is commonly seen when someone has a cut that's all one length. An easy trick to help reduce weight in your ends is to texturize the ends and cut off the “corners.” By doing so, your hair will gain volume and movement.
Having fine hair comes with the struggle of scraggly ends (If you know, you know). something as simple as making sure you get that trim every 8 weeks and keeping your hair healthy can make a huge difference in how full your hair looks.
I'm sure you’re thinking “of course extensions will make your hair appear fuller” but I really wanted to add this one in due to the common misconception that extensions need to add length. Yes, extensions are great for that-- however, you can actually get them for the sole purpose of fullness as well. You can honestly match any length of hair with hand ties extension, even short hair!
