Contrary to popular belief, fine hair isn't as easy to style because it can't hold heat-styled curls properly and accessories seem to slip down throughout the day. If you're at your wit's end, don't go rushing to the salon for a blowout just yet. Ahead, we've compiled seven tricks you can do to score thicker-looking tresses:

  1. Use a volumizing shampoo.

    If you want to go down the more ~natural~ route, try using a volumizing shampoo. It's enriched with extracts that will help boost hair growth and does not include ingredients that will weigh your hair down.

  2. Give yourself some loose waves.

    Limp, straight hair can appear blah on its own, but adding a few loose waves and it will be salon-worthy! The texture and dimension will give you the illusion of fuller-looking hair.

  3. Switch up your hair part.

    If you want an instant volume boost, simply flip over your part to the opposite side of where it usually sits. It will give your locks more volume ASAP!

  4. Take hair growth vitamins.

    If you want to go the extra mile, try taking hair growth supplements. Look for ones that contain biotin, iron, and vitamin B—all of which can fast-track your way to both a thicker *and* longer mane.

  6. Cut your hair into a lob or bob.

    If you have long hair that’s limp, you’ll notice that its length can make it look a lot thinner than usual. The next time you’re due for your trim, ask your hairstylist to give you a bob or lob. Don’t be afraid to request for layers which can really give you the volume you need!

  7. Include dry shampoo in your hair care routine.

    Dry shampoo isn’t just for extending the time between washes—you can also use it to add more volume! Simply apply it on the roots while you’re back combing, then massage it to evenly distribute the product.
