Friday, April 18th, 2014

1. Use The Right Shampoo and Conditioner
The first step to having thick and luxurious looking hair is to use the right products in the shower. Many shampoos and conditioners focus on hydrating hair, which is a good thing, but thin hair can be weighed down and made to look limp. Replacing your current cleanser with either Hamadi – Honey Soymilk Hair Wash or Leonor Greyl – Bain Volumateur Aux Algues, both of which offer lightweight moisture and a volume boost, may make a huge difference in how full your hair appears.

7 Tips on How to Have Thicker Hair2. Don’t Let Long Hair Weight You Down
When it comes to making your hair look thicker, less can be more. The longer your hair is, the more weight it has, which can make it appear flat. Not only are shorter looks easier to manage, they also tend to look fuller. Getting a blunt cut with bangs or going for artfully arranged layers makes can make even baby fine hair appear full of volume.

3. Blow Dry Your Hair With The Right Tools
For many people with thin hair, blow drying is a must. However, you want to be sure that you are using the right tools and products when doing so. You should be using a product that will both protect your hair as well as add volume, such as Fekkai – COIFF Defense Pre-Style Thermal/UV Protectant. These types of products will help you get volume without also making hair appear brittle or lifeless due to heat damage.

4. Use Curlers and Rollers
Curls are a great way to pump up the volume in your hair, and you can easily achieve this using a curling iron or hot rollers. If you don’t want to go with ringlets, you can also add extra oomph to your hair by using large rollers that create a more wavy or tousled look.

5. Add Volume With Extensions
One way that a lot of models and actresses get extra volume is by using falls or extensions in their hair. There are both synthetic and natural hair pieces available, and most can be dyed to match your exact hair color. Additionally, you can choose your level of commitment; salons can put in extensions that last for months or you can purchase clip-ins for daily use.

6. Maintain Your Hair’s Health
If you’ve already got hair that is fine, it’s important to keep it looking healthy and shiny. Hair with numerous split ends and that looks dull will appear even flatter, and you are looking for volume, not frizz. Treatments like Leonor Greyl – Creme Regeneratrice can undo the effects of damage from heat and styling as well as adding volume to naturally thin hair.

7. Consider Your Diet
Getting fuller hair is more than about what you put on your head, it’s also about what you put in your body. Adding certain items to your diet or taking supplements can improve the building blocks your body has to work with when it comes to growing hair. Biotin, Zinc and B-Vitamins are all essential to healthy and full hair, so adding them to a diet that is lacking can speed up the growth of hair as well as improving its overall appearance.

How to make thinning hair look thicker

Starting to notice a widening part or a more visible scalp? You're not alone: More than 30 million women in the U.S. suffer from hair thinning or loss. Fortunately, this problem can be addressed with the right dietary choices and supplements, hair products and styling tricks.

The first step to thicker hair starts at the scalp. Try Jack Black's True Volume Thickening Shampoo, which is formulated with expansion technology and delivers body-building wheat protein and creatine into the hair shaft to give each strand a fuller appearance. Basil and tea tree oil help to keep the scalp flake free and stimulate the hair follicles for healthy growth, thus minimizing any potential hair loss. Meanwhile, soy protein provides structure for thinning hair, and white lupine revitalizes and strengthens new hair growth.

Next, work in En Root Give Me Volume Conditioner by theBalm, which is infused with bamboo, rice protein and vitamins A, C and E for soft, full, voluminous hair. Work a mousse like the Fekkai Advanced Full Volume Styling Whip through damp hair. The solution packs a powerful plumping complex which can help to boost the fullness of every strand from roots to ends while providing lightweight, all day hold. If you need to fake it till you make it, ESalon recommends opting for a multi-layered haircut or face-framing bangs and getting regular trims to keep hair from looking flat.

By following these steps, you can achieve a fuller, healthier and more voluminous looking mane.

It's time to adopt a Boho look in time for summer

As more celebrities begin to take advantage of summer makeup and hair products, we’re seeing an increase in Boho looks! It seems that more women are attempting to say, “I don’t care how my hair looks,” with their tresses as of late. One of these women is Ashley Benson, the star of the hit television show “Pretty Little Liars.”

Recently, the blonde bombshell was spotted at a concert with waves in her hair and something rather unusual – yarn! Glamour magazine reported on the celebrity sighting, claiming that yarn is going to be extremely popular this season. Ditch the headbands and opt for good old-fashioned string if you want to look chic in 2013!

Kate Hudson is another celebrity who’s adopting the Boho look just in time for summer. She was spotted at the Tribeca Film Festival with her hair down, full of waves that really showed the crowd that she couldn’t care less about her locks! She made it work, and you can too with a volume-infusing hair spray and a quick blow-dry with a round brush, according to Hollywood Life.

Want beachy hair this spring and summer? Salt spray can help

       
Thursday, April 5th, 2012

You don't need to ride the waves to have surfer-girl hair!If you’re a fan of beachy surfer-girl waves, you don’t have to actually stand on a surfboard and let the ocean rough up your hair to get the look. In fact, you can easily get the look at home with a DIY salt spray, using ingredients you may already have. Here’s a recipe from Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog, as well as a few products that will enhance your waves.

First, make sure your hair is prepped and ready by lathering up with BORGHESE – Shampoo Purificante Cleansing Treatment for Hair and Scalp in the shower. Also, grab a gentle-hold hairspray like Leonor Greyl – Laque Souple Gentle Hold Hair Spray to set your waves after you apply the salt spray.

Now, fill a clean spray bottle with water and sea salt. Use one teaspoon of salt for every eight ounces of water. Add in ½ teaspoon of coconut-scented conditioner or coconut oil, which will smell great and combat the salt’s tendency to dry out your hair. A tiny bit of unscented hair gel added in will also help to hold the wave.

Shake it up and spray it on before curling your hair or just leave it in to enhance your tresses’ natural waves. Easy!

Emma Watson debuts new pixie-cutEmma Watson, pictured here at last year’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince premiere, recently stunned the world by chopping off her luscious, wavy locks in favor of a new gamine ‘do. This pixie-cut is bound to inspire many women to take a pair of shears to their own strands, and with a few expert tips, styling this short shag can be simple.

“Go light with the product,” stylist Anh Co Tran told InStyle.com. “You want the hair to look soft and feminine, not heavy or severe.” But, women with a gamine haircut may want to stock up on a few different products, depending upon one’s hair type and desired style.

A shampoo that adds body, like L’Occitane Aromachologie Volumizing Shampoo, will give a healthy boost to even the shortest, finest locks.

For a natural look, the news source recommends using a volumizing mousse on wet hair, and pulling the hair up and back as you dry. Leonor Greyl Mousse Au Lotus Volumatrice will add volume and shine to your locks and it even offers UVA and UVB sun protection.

“A styling wax will give you a piecier look,” stylist Mario Russo told the news source. Ladies who want a funkier ‘do can use products aimed at men, such as Baxter of California Water Pomade, as these items are often formulated specifically to style short hair without weighing locks down.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19921849-ADNFCR
