Fine hair? Try these tips to inject some volume
It can be difficult if you have fine hair – you try and find products to make your locks bouncy and volumised, but using said products can sometimes leave your tresses limp and lifeless. Thankfully there are now a host of products on the market that boast the ability to give your barnet a boost without making it greasy.
The thought of a hair mousse might take you back to the days of Dynasty, but these are actually a really good way to inject some volume into lacklustre locks. The most important thing is to choose a product which will allow you to maintain a volumised hair look throughout the day and into the evening. Kerastase’s Resistance Volumifique Mousse is a good one for this, as it gives an initial boost of volume, which is then continued for hours. It also has an anti-static effect which prevents hair from becoming fly-away, which it can do sometimes when you try and create artificial volume.
Label.m has a new Thickening range, which features a Volume Foam. “Thicker, fuller hair has always been an issue close to my heart,” Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, label.m’s Global Creative Director, said. “To help create healthy looking locks, weightless volume and lift are key. This latest prescriptive range from label.m helps to add volume from root-to-tip and instantly visible thickness to any hair type whilst nourishing and protecting hair from damage.”
If mousses sound like too much of a sticky hassle, then why not try a spray? A quick and easy option to boost your locks, there are a huge variety of options on the market.
