1. Use a restorative shampoo and conditioner duo for dyed hair.

Dyeing hair can be damaging to strands and cause thinning, especially if you have a vice for blonde or platinum coloring. If coloring your hair is a must (and trust us, we understand!), it’s important to use a restorative and dye-friendly shampoo and conditioner duo. Using products that will strengthen your cuticles and also increase dye longevity is key. You want to give your strands the appearance of fuller hair and if your wash routine can give you an extra week or two before hitting the hairstylist again then that’s a must. Suave Professionals Color Protection Shampoo and Conditioner work to gently cleanse your hair and also protect it.

2. Dry shampoo in between washes is vital.

When you’re taking a break from shampoo and conditioner, use a dry shampoo. Using a dry shampoo will give the appearance of fuller hair because it will remove oils that flatten strands and also create a ton of volume at the root resulting in fuller hair. We love TRESemmé Unscented Dry Shampoo to get your hair looking fresh and give it that extra oomph.

3. Go for a shorter haircut to work with your thinner strands.

Sometimes it’s best to not fight hair loss or your thinning texture and work with it to create a hairstyle that’s youthful and intentional. We recommend going for a shorter style so that your finer texture isn’t as apparent. A bold buzz cut and side shave are great for the more adventurous. A pixie cut or a bob is perfect for those easing into this length. If you feel up to it, give your hair a bold color as well to draw attention away from hair loss!

4. Updos are a great way to create volume.

If you’re in need of some more volume and fast—updos are the way to go. Putting your hair up can create more volume allowing your hair to look fuller. Try teasing your high ponytail or creating a loose messy bun. When going for a voluminous updo, make sure you’re not using a tight hair tie as that will tear at your hair cuticle. Use a scrunchie or a scarf to secure your strands. They’ll be more gentle on your hair and also add some flair to the style.
