5 Ways to Increase Hair Volume

Increasing hair volume is not an overnight job; it takes time and serious effort. So, to help you in this process, here are some expert tips:

1. Change Your Shampoo

One of the best ways to make your thin hair look voluminous is to switch to the right shampoo. You need to find a shampoo with a dedicated volumizing hair treatment that will improve the growth of the hair and its consistency. Furthermore, these shampoos are made with gentle cleansing agents, which are good for your scalp health.  

2. Put Your Head Upside Down Before You Blow Dry It

This is one simple trick to improve your hair volume that works like magic. The method is very easy and comes in handy if you use a blow dryer a lot. Just dry your hair normally till 80% of it is dry. Then tip your head forward and tip the dryer facing down. After you are done, you will be able to notice a slight bounciness in your hair. 

3. Use a Dry Shampoo

A dry shampoo is probably the quickest volumizer for hair, among all other methods. It is the best option for emergencies when you do not have much time to sit for a whole hair-washing session. Just take a small portion of your dry shampoo on your palm and spread it evenly. Then apply the shampoo on the roots of your mane and wait for a few minutes. You will see an instant buoyancy in your hair volume. The dry shampoo here soaks the excess oil from your scalp and makes the hair look shinier and silkier. 

4. Trust the Hot Towel Therapy

This therapy can be considered a natural hair volumizer. This is also a very easy hack. After oiling your hair, you should start messaging your scalp gently. It is one of the most critical steps. After massaging, put your hair in a hot towel. Take a bowl of hot water and dip the towel completely. Soak it, and then make sure to dry the excess dripping water. The towel should not be too hot. Then wrap all your hair in it and keep it for some time. Repeat the whole procedure multiple times and finish by wrapping your hair every time. Continue this for around half an hour – this much time should be enough to get that classy voluminous hair look. 

5. Backcomb Your Hair

This is the most effective way to get the hair volume without spending a penny on any dryer or shampoo. The result is instant. However, one should understand the correct way to do it; otherwise, the result can be quite the opposite. Also, use a hairspray to hold the volume and then style accordingly.


To sum up, increasing your hair volume is not a complicated process and if you keep the tips mentioned above in mind, you can easily reach the desired results.
