How To Add Volume To Hair With 5 Simple Tips

Let’s talk about how to add volume to hair…

Unfortunately, I have been blessed with boring, fine hair, and now that I don’t bleach it anymore, it lays pretty flat most of the time.  However, I have been experimenting with different techniques to give it some volume, and therefore, was inspired to write this post about 5 quick tips to add volume to your hair!

The first thing you can do is…

1. Add Layers/Texture

When your hair is long, it becomes heavy.  When it is heavy, gravity pulls it down and flattens it by the roots.  Therefore your hair becomes flat.

If you have fine or thin hair, this could be tricky, because you don’t want to thin your hair out too much (which layers also do).  However, you probably do want to add a bit of layering around the crown to take some of the weight out.

You can also have it thinned out with thinning shears toward the crown.  I do want to stress that you should only have someone that knows what they are doing do your hair.  It can easily get messed up.

If your hair isn’t thin, you can typically go with more layers.  I really like the blended layer style that Mena Suvari is wearing in the picture above.

Another way to add texture is to color or bleach your hair.  Be careful though, because you don’t want to damage it too much either.

2. Backcomb your Hair

This is probably the easiest fix on this list.  Backcombing is really simple.

Lifting a section of hair, use a comb and brush downwards towards your scalp.  I recommend using a comb made for backcombing and then using the pick to lift the sections up.

The hard part is smoothing out your hair so you can’t see where you teased it, without taking out the backcombing.  If you are still confused, here is a video tutorial:

3. Use Volumizing Shampoo

I recently decided that I could probably benefit from volumizing hair products now that my hair is not bleached.  In the past, they weren’t heavy enough to condition my super damaged hair, but since my hair is now fine, the volumizing shampoo works wonders.

Volumizing products work by not weighing your hair down with added fillers or residues.  If you are working with significant damage, you can try alternating this with a heavier conditioning product or doing regular deep conditioning treatments.

4. Blow-Dry your Hair Upside-Down

This is a pretty easy trick that you can do without spending any money.  When you dry your hair with a blow-dryer, just turn your head upside down.

This helps the roots dry upward, and when you flip your head back over, you will have a lot of extra volume.  You can even try spritzing your roots with hairspray while your head is upside down.

5. Add Thickener

Thickening products typically work by either coating the hair strands with an extra “layer,” making the hair appear thicker and fuller, or actually expanding the hair by opening the cuticle.

None of these tips will permanently change your hair, but will just add some extra volume in a crunch.
