When you have thin or limp hair, it’s a constant struggle to make it look voluminous. It’s easy to fall prey to grease or oil, and thin hair has a hard time holding certain styles. Luckily, there are some tricks you can use to make your hair look thicker, and over time, actually change its composition.

Use a Root Lifter
Root lifters are fabulous products that help your hair gain volume after a shower. When your hair is still wet, spray it on, tousle, and either blow dry or air dry. They help give the appearance of thickness because the roots are where flat or oily hair usually start.

Try an Egg Treatment
Eggs in your hair? What? Sounds like a disaster, right? Wrong! Egg yolks are actually one of the foods proven to help your hair gain thickness over time. Beat an egg (or two if you have longer hair,) and then apply to your wet hair like it were a mask. Then wash your hair with shampoo. Do this up to twice a week, and the protein in the eggs will have your hair thicker in a few weeks.
Make Sure You’re Taking Vitamins
For the most part, our diets don’t actually give us the correct amount of vitamins and minerals we need. Deficiencies can lead to thinner hair, because when our body is missing the essential nutrients, it can’t give anything away to hair or skin. Visit your doctor to figure out what vitamins you’re lacking, and then start a new regime.
DIY Blow Out
Yeah, we all wish we could get a professional blowout for every occasion, but that’s definitely too much of a strain on the wallet. Luckily, there are techniques for an at-home blow out that won’t blow through your cash. Make sure you have a quality blow dryer with low heat settings, and give yourself a few rounds to practice before you try it for a big event.
