Healthy Hair

Shiny hair with a smooth feel and clean-cut ends is healthy hair. The following tips will help you maintain your scalp and hair health – and are how to make thin hair thicker:

  • Eat a balanced diet with plenty of eggs, whole grains, nuts, and vegetables.
  • Take supplements that target hair growth and contain biotin, zinc, and niacin.
  • Wash your hair less frequently using sulphate and paraben-free shampoos and conditioners.
  • Use wide-toothed combs to avoid breakage.
  • Blow-dry hair on a low setting with a round brush to add volume.
  • Use oils beneficial to hair such as castor, olive, and jojoba.
  • Add collagen to your diet to increase hair-building proteins.
  • Keep split ends at bay by having a regular trim about every six weeks.

Choose a Style

The ideal haircut for thin hair to look thicker is the calligraphy haircut. Both straight and fine hair that lack volume and body can be transformed. Trained stylists from Frankie Cochrane Hairdressers in Holborn will use the calligraphy pen to cut hair at an angle – giving up to 300% added volume.

This technique provides fullness and bounce from the ends right through to the roots. And without any harsh lines, the hair is weightless. The gentle oblique cuts allow flexibility in every strand. And the precision of the cut results in fuller hair that’s easy to style and maintain at home.

For medium-length hair, the key is keeping the ends blunt – and the layers long. Blunt ends will hold the hair together, creating an overall thicker look. Shoulder-length hair is both stylish and functional. And simple minimal layers with just a few framing the face promote an easy style that works well with thin hair.

Adding natural-looking texture to thin hair can be achieved by cutting the hair in a wavy lob. Volumising spray will make the hair look thicker. If you want a really modern option go for an asymmetrical lob that has one side slightly longer, making your hair appear thicker.

A deep side parting can add instant volume. And seamless highlights create more depth and dimension throughout. The right colouring can make thin hair appear fuller.
