Ever had the thick hair dream? One second you’re walking down a street, thick, luscious hair blowing in the breeze; the next you’re lying in bed, wishing you were still asleep. But it doesn’t have to have to be this way, as you can now make it all a reality by using our edit of thicker hair products!
Now, just to clarify: no product can actually make your strands physically thicker, but they can boost the volume and body of your hair, making it look and feel fuller. Intrigued? From the shower to the street, we’ve created a complete hair care routine to help you get the locks of your dreams. You can thank us later…
Products to make hair thicker and how to use them
Step 1: Wash & care
As with any hair care routine, you should start your journey in the shower. The shampoo and conditioner you use should be targeted to your specific hair needs and goals – and this means using thicker hair products such as the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Shampoo and Conditioner.
This duo has been infused with collagen and glycerine, penetrating inside the strands to help give hair a thicker appearance.
The shampoo also contains micellar technology (inspired by the micellar water trend in skincare), to draw away dirt and product build-up from the hair, without stripping it.
Step 2: Pre-styling
When it comes to boosting the volume of your hair, many people skip straight from the shower to styling, but pre-styling products are an important step. And if you’re worried that adding extra products to your routine will only weigh down your tresses, the TRESemmé Collagen+ Fullness Thickening Balm definitely won’t.
This ultra light multi-tasking balm helps to plump up your strands while blow-drying for a natural-looking, voluminous style with long-lasting body and bounce. And all this before you’ve even started styling!
Step 3: Styling
Now, we come to the part where you’ll see all your hard work start to pay off. You’ve washed, conditioned and prepped your strands, and now it’s time to boost that body! How? With the help of the TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray.
This hairspray can be used to both create and finish your chosen look and should be sprayed in sections to build up the volume as you go.
Still not enough volume? As a final touch before you step out the door, give your tresses a mist of the TONI&GUY 3D Volumiser Spray. Use in towel-dry or dry hair, this volumising spray will create fullness from root to tip, with a touch of shine for good measure.
Step 4: On-the-go boosts
You can blowdry, curl and spray your strands to perfection but sometimes the style just won’t stay last (thanks British weather!).
In times of need, turn to the VO5 Dry Backcomb Spray. Place this volume-boosting essential in your bag and whip it out when your style starts to fall flat. Direct the spray towards the roots for an instant volume refresher and spritz throughout your lengths to add tonnes of texture!
Can’t fit the spray bottle in your bag? Then take the VO5 Instant Volume Powder with you instead – it may be small but it really packs a punch where needed. Sprinkle onto the roots and rub in with your fingers to create instant volume with a matt texture.
No more excuses for not having a fabulous, full mane, okay?
Step 5: Treatment
At the end of the day when you’re ready to unwind, there’s nothing quite like indulging in a little treat. Whether you go for a cheeky takeaway, sip on some vino or (as we like to do) reap the benefits of a hair mask.
For those with fine hair that also lacks shine, we suggest taking the time to sit back, relax and let the Nexxus Youth Renewal Mask work its magic.
Enriched with Liquid Pearl and Elastin Protein, it nourishes the fibre from within and brings out a luminous sheen to the strands. Plus with a weightless texture, it helps replenish hair from deep within while retaining volume and body. The result? Stronger hair that is smooth but not weighted down.
And there you have it, all the expert tips, tricks and products to make hair thicker! Now, where will you show yours off?
