Why you should care

If Picasso were a hairstylist, thick hair would be his canvas of choice. So how do you get such styleable hair?

Whether you’re born with naturally fine hair or experiencing hair loss, the thin hair struggle is real! Without volume, hairstyles like updos, braids, and bobs just don’t sit quite right.

Green with envy for those lovely thick tresses

Faking It

  • The dry shampoo and volumiser magic combo

Try Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumising Hairspray – to use, hang your head down and flip your hair to the front. Then, spray some volumising hair spray and comb the product through your strands. Your hair will appear fuller and ready for styling!

  • Layer it up

Get a layered cut. The ‘stacked’ effect of this hairstyle coupled with more air and movement in your ‘do will give you a fuller look.

  • Preach the bleach

The chemical formula expands the strands. Finding the right combination of colour and highlights will also create the illusion of depth and volume.

  • Tease to please
Teasing Hair for Volume



Ever wondered how some people have so much volume, especially at their crowns? A long tail comb and hairspray, my friend.

Tease the hair near the root by placing the teeth of your comb on the ends of a hair section, then comb towards your roots. You’ll be amazed how much volume you can achieve with this method!

  • Grow it out right

While you may want to grow out your hair, trimming the ends frequently is the best way to make sure you have healthy hair. Trimming rids split ends or breakage which can make your strands look thinner than they actually are!
For a longer term solution instead of a quick fix, try these easy yet highly effective hair masks!

Masking It

  1. Egg Hair Mask
  2. Eggs
    Allowing for the length of your hair, apply 1 or 2 eggs to your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water and a mild shampoo. Use this method once or twice a week for maximum results. It works because eggs are an egg-cellent (sorry) provider of protein needed for hair growth.
  3. Olive Oil
    Massage the scalp with warm oil and leave it on for 30 to 45 minutes before washing off with a mild shampoo. This mask can also be left on overnight. What’s more? The properties in the oil will help to soften and smooth your locks!
  4. Avocado
    Avocado Hair Mask
    Mash 1 avocado and 1 banana, then mix these contents with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Apply it to the hair and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash off gently with shampoo. Do this once a week and your hair will grow out gorgeously in no time!

Lastly, don’t forget to drink lots of water and have healthy, balanced meals. We know you hear that too much but the secret to luscious locks begins with the magical inner workings of your body!
