How to add volume to fine hair

With the right care and styling, you can create a luscious look even if your hair is fine and limp. Learn how to give your hair a boost with these tips.

Wash It In

One great way to give fine hair some volume is by keeping it clean and not weighing it down. Invest in shampoos and conditioners that are designed for fine hair; they’re usually less heavy than formulas for normal hair. Vive Pro Style & Body Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner for Fine Hair That Needs Volume help add bounce weightlessly. If you have dry, frizzy, fine hair, use Vive Pro Smooth Intense Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry, Frizzy Hair That’s Fine to smooth flyaways while perking up fine hair. To help keep roots lifted, apply most of your conditioner at the ends of your hair. Remember that too much moisture will make fine hair limp and flat, so use a small amount of conditioner to make sure there’s life in your mane.

Break Away from Breakage

Fine hair is delicate, which means strands can easily break, leading to flyaways and split ends. Wash your hair gently and separate wet strands with a wide-toothed comb. Give your hair an even bigger boost against breakage by fortifying it with hair treatments. Try Vive Pro Nutri Gloss Conditioning Treatment for a dose of shine. By being conscientious about your hair’s fragility, you can keep it smooth, soft, and shiny.

Go Light

Definitely use styling products to add volume and control, but don’t overdo it—with fine hair, a little goes a long way. Create light volume with Studio Line Volum'max Mousse or perfect hair with a small amount of Studio Line Out of Bed. Although Studio Line products do wash out without causing buildup, shampoo every few days to cleanse your hair of any residue and pollution and to keep it light, bouncy, and beautiful.

Become a Styling Pro

The right styling tricks make a big difference when adding volume to fine hair. To get fullness that will last, blow-dry your hair upside down, directing air at your roots with your head flipped over. When hair is nearly dry, apply styling products; doing this will hold your style longer and make your hair look fuller. To further boost the volume and shape, experiment with rollers, which will help bend your strands into the perfect style.

A Cut Above the Rest

Trim fine hair regularly to maintain its overall health and shape. You can also add face-framing layers to your cut to add body and get a chic look.
