Pump Up the Volume on Thinning Locks

Dr Benjaming Stong

Both men and women want bombshell tresses — more simply put, hair that looks full and healthy. But if you’re dealing with limp or thinning strands, this can be a tough to pull off.

Luckily, these simple tweaks to your styling routine may help give your hair a bit more body, pumping up the volume on lackluster locks.

  • Give your scalp some extra TLC as you shampoo and condition. Healthy, full hair begins at its base — the scalp. For healthy hair with volume, you need a healthy scalp free of dirt, oil, and build-up, which means you may need to spend a few extra minute scrubbing and conditioning. Take care to scrub the crown thoroughly, but not too hard. Work volumizing shampoo from roots to ends, making sure to rinse out all the shampoo completely. Condition, but leave the conditioner off the roots, as it can weigh hair down.
  • Blow dry your hair upside down. There’s no question that blow-outs at the salon give your hair a movie star quality, but it can be tough to replicate the look once you get home. An easy way to boost your hair’s volume is to blow-dry it upside down. Towel dry your hair just a bit, then flip all your hair over. Brush your hair down towards the floor as you dry, and when you’re finished, you’ll see nice added lift at the roots, and body throughout. Note: be careful not to heat-style your hair too much. Stretching and straightening hair can make cause breakage of the strands, making it look thinner over time.
  • Switch up your part. If your hair naturally falls one way versus the other, switch it up. This is a sneaky, simple way to infuse flat hair with some added lift.
  • Avoid heavy oils and creams. Fine or thinning hair doesn’t have the structural integrity to withstand heavy styling products — whether it’s coconut oil, or a more expensive volumizing cream. Opt instead for lighter products, such as dry shampoo. Shampoos and conditioners containing sulfates are also too harsh for fine, thin hair, and can lead to further dry out and breakage.

It’s also important to keep in mind that not even the most advanced styling tricks can give life to thinning hair, or hair that falls out as a result of genetics, medication or other more serious factors. That’s where Kalos Hair Transplant comes in. We offer the most effective, state-of-the-art hair restoration technologies to help restore your strands — and your confidence.
