In the hair industry, many clients come in seeking to thicken up their thin hair. Unfortunately, not all of us have naturally thick, bouncy hair. Have no fear! Below are some tips to help you create the illusion of thicker hair without paying a fortune for hair thickening treatments.
The first step into thicker hair is to start with the shampoo and conditioner you use. Hair care begins at the scalp, so investing in a good shampoo and conditioner is important. Aveda’s Pure Abundance Volumizing shampoo and conditioner is just the product you need. It includes acacia gum, which helps thicken your hair temporarily, giving you more life and volume.
There are a ton of different products guaranteed to thicken your strands, so it might be overwhelming at first. Aveda’s Thickening Tonic is a good place to start. This spray is infused with sodium magnesium silicate that deposits a layer of product on each individual strand. Combined with heat, it will thicken your hair and have it looking and feeling fuller. It also contains different proteins that act as cationic conditioning agents, which help protect your hair from heat and chemical damage.
Keep in mind that these products won’t permanently thicken your hair, but will help create the visual of fuller, thicker hair. There are different haircuts and products that aid in giving you a full look. Your XEX Stylist is the best person to talk to about what styles and products can help your hair appear thicker.
