How I Fake Thick and Voluminous Hair

If you follow my blog you may have noticed that I'm not blessed with the thickest hair in the world - in fact it's very thin, fine and flat. Boooooo. If I'm honest my hair is the thing I make the least effort with - I'll happily leave the house and go to work without doing a thing to my hair, but recently I've been trying to make more of an effort with styling and also with trying to thicken and volumise my hair in general. I still only do this when I have time though! Here's what I've been using:

Lush Roots Hair Treatment | This is a product developed to help those with thin and fine hair (thanks Lush!) I apply this to my roots (who would have guessed it?) about fifteen minutes before  washing my hair and massage in. On the instructions it says to continue massaging for the whole time, but my effort doesn't stretch that far so I just leave it. I did a more in depth review on this in my Spring Favourites post if you're interested to know more, but I really love this product!

L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner | I love this shampoo and conditioner combo for volume - it really does lift my roots, but I don't use it every time I wash my hair because L'Oreal shampoos tend to make my hair go greasy quicker so for that reason I use them every other time I wash my hair. They are amazing though!

TRESemme Volume Styler | I love using this - it's like a hairdryer and rollers in one so really volumises your roots, plus I find it makes my hair look nicer in general than an ordinary hairdryer. I use a heat protection spray before this and then dry my hair in sections for the best volume.

Schwarzkopf Got2B Texturizing Salt Spray | This featured in my Everyday Favourites post because I use it pretty much everyday! It lasts me ages because I only use a little each time - don't use too much or you get year 8 crispy hair! I tend to spray a little onto each section once it's dried and it just gives the rest of my hair a bit more texture to match my roots!

And this is the result! It might not look like much volume, but trust me it is for me!

Let me know if you have any product recommendations in the comments! Have you tried any of these products? Do you suffer with the same problem or are you blessed with thick hair?

  1. Your hair is absolutely stunning! I love roots they always sell out in my store too, and I had that tresemme styler and couldn't even use it I am such a doofus haha xx

    1. Aw thank you that really means a lot! I'm so self conscious about my hair haha. Also took me a while to get used the styler but you should stick with it it's really good! Xx

  2. I love the john Frieda Volume range, and their blow dry spray gives me lots of lucious volume. I am not blessed unfortunately, and often weep that I am not blessed with Disney Princess hair ha! I will try anything to get that ompf in my hair, so will definitely be trying out these products! :) Love the pic of your hair at the bottom! :)
