Billboards and beauty magazines parade around girls with high cheekbones, thin waists, and blown-out hair. Though almost everyone agrees that these standards of beauty are so last year (curvy is in), getting voluminized hair seems to be a goal for many young women today. A thick, built up crowning glory looks gorgeous on anyone, and it adds vibrance and life to a lady’s overall appearance.
Limp, lifeless hair is, after all, a really bad turn off. Not only does it not translate well with potential lovers, it is also a sign of poor health, especially bad nutritional choices. The hair bears the marks of one’s health, and having thin hair could stem from a range of illnesses.
This is why both ladies and gentlemen should push to gain stronger, healthier hair that packs volume and weight, and for women with naturally thin hair, fret not. There are hair styles for thin hair that can help the mane look more luscious and voluminous.
Thin, fine hair often appears damp, lifeless, and limp. This is because it is characterized by a lesser number of hair follicles per square inch. Therefore, work out styles that make the hair appear bigger and thicker. For women with long hair, try getting it permed with layered curls. This adds dimension and bounciness to the hair.
However, do not go overboard with the layering. Direct the hair stylist to layer around the face only and not on the surrounding parts of the hair. This is because doing the latter will result in hair that looks very thin. It is, therefore, not a good hair style for people who started out with thin hair.
Shorter lengths also work their magic. Hair styles for thin hair focus on achieving a fuller look, and getting a bob cut accomplishes just that. Leaving the ends blunt also helps. Top off the look with side bangs that can accentuate the face as well as create the illusion of a fuller hair. A shaggy pixie cut also adds dimension and movement to otherwise lifeless hair.
Expert hair stylists also recommend parting the hair on the side instead of in the middle.
Other ways of combating thin hair is by drying the hair with a blow dryer every morning. Use a comb to push the hair outwards, towards the nozzle to add volume.
Various beauty products such as shampoos, conditioners, and hair sprays could also be used to promote volume. However, avoid using oil-infused ingredients as well as those that promote moisture. These will only weigh down the hair, which will go against the look that one wants to achieve. The volume that one hopes for cannot be achieved by oily, wet looking hair.
People with naturally thin hair should also consider eating and making healthier choices. Fruits and vegetables are natural containers of the vitamins and minerals needed to foster healthy hair growth, which may just be able to reverse the thinning of the mane.
More than being a beauty mark, a luscious and voluminous hair is a symbol of health and fertility. It is best to treasure and take care of it.
