Unless you’ve decided to leave the hassle behind you and shave your hair off completely (we don’t blame you), there’s a high chance that you spend much of your morning trying to make your hair look as if it’s not completely stuck to your face and that there is some volume there. Unfortunately, this volume is normally hidden underneath the heavy, lifeless strands of hair that are being pretty darn stubborn. If you’re not about that life and just can’t be bothered with flat hair anymore, try out these hairstyle hacks to make your hair look fuller.
Get regular haircuts
If you’re trying to grow your hair out, the last thing you want someone telling you is that you need to get it cut on the reg – but to get full hair, that’s exactly what you need to do. If you don’t get your hair cut regularly, you run the risk of split ends and limp hair that has absolutely no life to them. By getting your cut around every 6 – 8 weeks, you can add a little bounce into your hair that will make it look even fuller than before.
Okay, so crimping your hair may be something you had no problem saying goodbye to in the ‘90s, but if you can bare it, getting your crimp on can add a huge amount of volume to your hair. Instead of crimping your whole head of hair, you just need to crimp the roots. This allows the root to lift itself up and give the illusion of fuller and thicker hair without doing anything major to damage the hair itself.
Use dry shampoo
Let’s be honest; dry shampoo is the greatest thing you could ever buy. Yep, there’s a reason that bottles of the stuff line every single store in the world! Although we all know that dry shampoo is an epic alternative to washing your hair when you’re in a rush, many people don’t know that dry shampoo also has the ability to make your hair look fuller. This is because dry shampoo dries the excess oils that make their way onto your hair through heavy shampoos and conditioners. By adding this to the roots, your hair will automatically be fuller.
If you’re looking for fuller hair without all of the hassle, one of the easiest ways to do this is to just take a trip to the upside-down. No, we’re not going all Stranger Things on you. Instead, by blow-drying your hair upside down, you can add some epic volume to your hair without adding any product. If you bend your body at the hips and turn your head towards the floor, you will be able to pull the root and allow it to stand on its end – which is exactly what you want.
Have a read
You might be wondering what reading has to do with making your hair look fuller – but in fact, it has everything to do with making your hair look fuller! What you put in your hair has a huge impact on how your hair sits on your head, and reading what you’re putting on your head can help you avoid limp and lifeless hair. So, when you go to buy your next bottles of shampoo and conditioner, make sure you avoid artificial ingredients such as parabens and sulfates. These ingredients will add excess weight to your follicles, and may not be beneficial to your hair in the long run.
If you’re fed up with lifeless hair – never fear! If you follow these hairstyle hacks, you’ll be able to make your hair look fuller in no time.
