Giving Fine Hair Volume

When you have fine hair, you are constantly on the lookout for ways to add volume. You can’t change the thickness or texture of your hair, but you can do the best you can with what you have. These are some ways to make the most of your fine hair.

right shampoo & conditioner

One of the best ways to pump up fine hair is to start with the right shampoo and conditioner. When you are shopping for shampoo and conditioner, choose a formula that is formulated to add body or volume to your hair. These shampoos and conditioners are formulated to not weigh your hair down and be a light product. You especially want to avoid anything that says it will moisturize your hair. Products that moisturize your hair will weigh it down. Try out our Volume shampoo by Joico!


If you have fine hair, root lifter will make a lot of difference in styling your hair. Try our root lifter by Joico, or our Aquage. Apply root lifter when your hair is damp and blow dry immediately for the magic to happen.


You need to dry in the direction you want your hair to go. When you have fine hair that you are trying to add volume to, you want your hair to go farther away from your head and blow drying your hair upside down is drying it away from your scalp to add volume. Another option is to hold your hair up and away from your face while you dry it. Either way will give you the desired result.


Biotin is known for making your hair grow faster and make it thicker. While you can’t ever change the texture of your fine hair, you can take Biotin which really pumps up the volume. Of course, you should always talk to your physician before taking any new supplement.


Sometimes, the best thing you can do is embrace what you have and choose a cut and style that works best with your hair. Shorter cuts will make your hair appear fuller and thicker. 


Backcombing or teasing can be very beneficial in pumping up the volume of your hair when done correctly. What you want to do is raise a section of your hair up and tease under it and then put the smooth section down on top of it. This strategy usually works best when used at the crown of the head.

 Free day

Fine hair is more fragile than other hair types and you need to treat it gently to avoid the breakage that makes it look even finer. I have learned that one of the best ways to do this is to give your hair the day off when you can. Skip washing your hair or styling it with any styling tools the day you are giving your hair the day off. If your hair gets oily when you skip washing it, try adding some dry shampoo to get you through.
