It’s amazing how many women with thinning hair skip this step: volumizing products for thin hair are a must-have, no matter if you hair is just thin or thinning. I would not be caught dead outside of the house (hmm, or inside for that matter) without my volumizing concoction. It takes me about 2 minutes to apply everything I need–2 minutes for about a 50% increase in self-confidence is totally worth it.
As you likely recall from my first post debuting my women’s hair loss (ugh), this is what I look like without my lifesaving volumizing products for thin hair:
And here I am WITH some volumizing products for thin hair. What do you think? Big difference, right?:
No, I promise I’m not naked, either. I have a tank top on, you just can’t see it.
You can definitely still see that my part isn’t as defined as someone who isn’t losing hair; you can also see my scalp through my hair (directly to the right of my part in the photo) if you are looking closely. But, there’s a huge improvement, right? I will note that the lighting is slightly different since the first photo was taking after a hair appointment, at it was dark out by the time I got home. The second photo was taken during the day, so there is some light coming through the window.
I must point out: this is WITHOUT hair concealers! That will be my next blog post, so stay tuned (subscribe via email, if it’s easier). It’s amazing what some of the best hair products for thin hair can do when combined with a concealer.
The key is finding out what volumizing products for thin hair (or thinning hair) work for you. For me, I need something that helps with structure at the roots. I use a few other products, but the one that helps to give it some structured shape is Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus; the “Plus” is great, but just the regular Root Pump is fantastic, too. It’s a non drying hair volumizing foam that you spray directly on your hair’s roots. It helps to give it a little extra “ommph”, which is important when you don’t have much on top. I also *love* Nioxin’s Diamax, too. It smells heavenly and helps to thicken each individual hair strand. It’s definitely worth a try to help visually add some heft to your hair.
What sorts of volumizing products do you use on YOUR hair?
