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-cut

Friday, August 6th, 2010

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 “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
