How To Make Limp Hair Voluminous: Your Ultimate Guide Part I

Many women with thin, fine, or flat hair assume that this is just their lot in life, that they are destined to have limp hair forever. This comes as no surprise, considering that we are surrounded by magazines, Instagram models, and celebrity Red Carpet events where every woman seems to have thick, bouncy hair. However, there are a few important things to remember. The first is that most celebrities you see wear hair extensions.

In fact, celebrity hairstylist Priscilla Valles, who has worked with the hair of everyone from Christina Aguilera to Kylie Jenner, told the Hollywood Reporter that she estimates that about 97 percent of female celebrities wear hair extensions. The second thing to remember is that whether it is a model in a magazine or a celebrity on the Red Carpet, they have a team of professionals styling their hair for them who are the best in the industry and using the best products.

When you compare your hair to that of Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, and Chrissy Teigen, it is easy to feel like your hair could never live up. But that’s not true! Your hair has so much potential whether you know it or not, and thankfully you don’t need thousands of dollars and a team of stylists to help you achieve your best hair ever. In this two-part blog series, we’ll be offering up some insider tips and tricks on how to love your hair, whether it is fine, thinning, or just plain limp. Keep reading to learn more!

How To Make Limp Hair Voluminous

Rule Out A Medical Condition

If your hair has suddenly started thinning, receding, or falling out in patches, it might be worth a trip to your doctor’s office to rule out the chance that there is an underlying medical condition or vitamin deficiency causing the problem. Some medical issues that might result in hair loss can include anemia, thyroid conditions, hormone imbalances, and iron deficiency.

Get A Haircut That Emphasizes Volume

Regular haircuts are important to increase hair volume for several reasons. The first is split ends. Having copious amounts of split ends will give you all the wrong volume in all the wrong places, making your hair look more like Hermione Granger and less like Emma Watson. When you have split ends, your hair will not move, flow, or lay how it should, making your hair look either frizzy, flat, or a combination of both. Ask your hair stylist for a cut that emphasizes volume with lots of layers. Most women with fine hair find that a shoulder-length bob or shorter helps their hair appear thicker than extra long hair.

Use The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

Many shampoos and conditioners are full of drying alcohol or parabens that weight down your hair, the opposite of what fine-haired women need.  Nourish Beaute offers paraben-free hair growth shampoo that is clinically proven to work without all the harsh chemicals and hormones found in other hair growth shampoos on the market. You want to choose a shampoo that nourishes your hair without coating it in residue, and gets your hair squeaky clean without drying it out. It’s a delicate balance but we seem to have found the right recipe!
