HOW TO MAKE THIN HAIR TO LOOK THICKER

Got thin hair? We know the struggle. While the right routine and products can help you to grow strong, luscious locks, achieving naturally thick hair can be a little trickier.

Boosting the appearance of your thin locks is all about faking it ‘til you make it.
There are tonnes of ways you can fake the illusion of density and fullness, none of which require any expertise.

Whether it’s the hairstyle you choose or your hair care routine, switching it up a little can transform limp lifeless locks into a bouncy, full head of hair.

Here are our top tips for making your thin hair look thicker:

1. Make the chop.

One of the easiest ways to make your hair look thicker is by getting the right haircut for maximising the volume of thin hair.

Ask for a blunt haircut to create the illusion of fuller ends and thicker hair.
Short haircuts such as a bob are also very flattering on those with thin hair, as getting rid of length makes for lighter, bouncier hair instead of heavy and limp strands.

Routine trims are crucial for thin hair gals, as they help you style maintain shape and fullness.

It also helps to keep hair breakage and split ends at bay - two problems which can contribute to the appearance of thin hair. 

2. Change your hair parting.

Middle parts may be in style right now, but if you’ve got thin hair, a side part may be just the thing you need.

A deep side part can create the illusion of thicker hair, giving you that carefree look of a side-swept hairstyle with natural fullness. If you’re unsure, try flipping your hair to one side and watch how it lifts at the roots to give your hair that much-needed volume.

3. Air dry your hair.

Air drying will give your hair some much-needed volume and texture - especially if you have curly or wavy hair! Plus, it helps to cut down on heat damage which can further exacerbate hair thinning.

If you have curly or wavy hair, try using a curl-enhancing cream to define your natural wave pattern. Or, if your hair is on the straighter side, try braiding your slightly damp hair.

Once your hair has dried, undo the braids and enjoy the easy, heatless waves that will give your hair a naturally-fuller appearance.

4. Hair extensions are a girl’s best friend.

If long, thick hair is your ultimate goal, why not try hair extensions? Whether you choose clip-ins, tape, or beaded extensions, they’re the key to adding instant length, body and volume to bring your hair to life.

We suggest JUVABUN Messy Bun™ for Quick & Thick Hairstyle!
The magic about The Juvabun Messy Bun, besides the fact that in less than 60 seconds your hair will look thick with tons of volume, is that it looks and feels so natural and effortless.

5. Use a thickening hair paste.

The right hair styling products can make all the difference when you’re trying to breathe life back into thin, lifeless locks.

Thickening hair paste can create the illusion of fuller hair, complementing shorter hairstyles and giving texture that feels natural.

Simply massage a pea-sized amount of product into your hair to add texture and volume, but avoid adding too much.

Too much product can weigh down your hair, exacerbating the appearance of your thin hair.

6. Doubled-up ponytails.


Transform a flat ponytail into one that is bouncy and full of volume without the use of hair extensions.

How, you ask? The trick is to create two ponytails instead of one, giving the illusion of a full, voluminous ponytail.


To do this, start by parting your hair into a top and bottom section that are even in size. Clip the top section of your hair out of the way while you work on the bottom section. Then take the bottom section of hair and tie it into a ponytail that sits at the middle of your head.

Once you’ve done that, unclip the top section of your hair and tie it into a second ponytail right above the bottom ponytail that you just created. There you have it: an easy ponytail that looks longer and is noticeably buoyant!
