How I Get Volume With Thin Hair!

Today I am going to be talking about how I get volume with my thin hair. I have a hormonal disorder known as PCOS, or polycystic ovary syndrome, and one of the symptoms is hair loss and male pattern balding. So, I have very thin hair. But, using these quick easy steps, I'm able to achieve more full and bouncy hair, and I love that!
If you want to follow along, you will need a few products: a root lifting spray, a blow out cream, a heat protectant, plus a blow dryer and a hair straightener! (I use MONAT products, but you can use whatever you like!)
First off, section your hair, and spray the root lifter on your roots. I like to spray the opposite direction my hair lays. 
Next, put in a dime to a nickel sized amount of both the heat protectant and the blow out cream. Remember, less is more! If you use too much, it can weigh your hair down, or make it look greasy... no thank you! 
Now onto blow-drying. I start by drying my hair upside down. This will make it so your hair doesn't dry flat on your head, so more volume! 
Once your hair starts to dry, flip your hair up, and dry your hair in parts, the opposite direction that your hair naturally lays. 
Here's my hair after blow-drying. 

Then onto straightening! I am going to straighten my hair using the same concept, going the opposite direction that your hair naturally lays. I also like to straighten my hair upside down! 
Once done, I try to avoid brushing directly on my scalp, I've had this flatten my hair in the past! Now I know to brush up and away from my head. Don't wanna ruin all our hard work!
You can finish with hairspray if you want, and you're all done! Gorgeous! 😘

    This is a great way to get volume! I do this same technique with my own hair but it's been a while since I've had a hair cut so I've actually just been letting my hair air dry and then throwing it up in a bun. I really liked your photos and you explained exactly what to do very well!

  • Christine Czaiczynski

    Like the review and your hair looks great, also products sound good especially for blow drying. I may have to try these out because I hate the way blow drying can damage my hair.

  • Kelly K

    Looks great!! I am currently using a chemical peal by Soap and Glory that I like. This is the first time that I have used a chemical peal. I use serum and creams everyday though.

  • Reenah

    Looks great! Thanks for the review 👍🏻

  • Sayeri

    Good review.and thank you for sharing how you do your hair.

    We all end up in the same place with long hair. Keeping your hair back and cut in a style can only help the situation. The norm with long hairs is brushing 50 strokes before and back combing too. Hair spray give you volume too.

    I have thin hair so I've learned all these tricks throughout the years as well. Blow dry upside down and flat iron in the opposite direction works really well.

  • Tonilynn Rosario

    Looks like some great products.

  • Rukhsana

    i have never used chemical peels or any sort of product so im not sure. i just prefare any exfoliating facial mask and it does my face a pretty good clean. luckys post has an amazing technique of flipping the hair over and using the hair dryer to dry and volumize from the underneath so that way when you flip the hair back, the hairs will look bigger and poofier.

    This is exactly some products I need. My hair has gotten very thin over the years and I'm always trying to find products that work to help give it volume and to help with growth in the healthiest ways. Heat Protecting Smoothing Spray is something that's appealing to me because I do use a lot of products like hair straighteners and blow dryers. Thermal Creations Heat Protectant Spray for Hair also a great sounding product for the same reasons I spoke of above. The Blow Dry Spray sounds great, I've never heard of this type of product before and I'm very interested in looking into this product because it states that it protects your hair from heat protection from damage and breakage also Dramatically decreases blow-dry time by 50% sounds awesome and amazing to give a try with. Any products that help make keep my hair healthy and make the process faster sounds amazing. Thanks for sharing these products. great review.

    Thank you Lucky for your post. I would use the tip of putting the product at my roots. I do not use a blow dryer because I do not like to add heat to my hair, but I do believe that flipping my hair over when brushing and styling helps.

    I have been using L'ange products for about 4 months now and wow my hair has completely transformed into shinny, healthy looking hair! To start I use there Dreamy purifying shampoo, Creme Brule conditioner. Then once out of the shower I use there Sorbet Smoothing Balm on my ends and on my roots I use there Selecte Thick it Cream! And I finish up with the Le Vite, it's a blow dryer, and styler in one. I have so much volume after I'm done. And the best part is I have trained my hair to were I only have to wash it about once a week!! Thanks for a great review Lucky!

  • Kayla Furnia

    I love how you set up the review and used pictures! I have very thick, coarse, wavy hair, so pretty much the opposite problem as you. lol.

  • Kelley Harner

    Such a good read and great photos to help with the review.

  • Rita Whirls

    Great review. This information will help me get the volume I need.

  • Roshanda

    Glad I read your review. Nice tip on not using too much heat protectant or products while using a blow dryer. That's important regardless of your hair type

  • Stephanie Esparza

    Great review of volumizing your hair! I will definitely try your technique's .

  • Marlena Fannin

    Great pictures and information!! I also have thin hair. Blow-drying your hair is a great way of adding volume to your hair. That's also what I do. I need to get some of those cool products you use though. I can tell it makes a difference. Thanks for sharing.

    I have very fine hair which has been made thin by prescription meds so I truly sympathize with you. I have learned to use thickening shampoo & conditioner, only in reverse. I condition first and shampoo second. This leaves my hair soft and tangle free, but not weighed down. I also use root spray and dry upside down. I only with warm air at first since it can flatten hair and then I finish with cool air, for volume. After my hair is dry, I use dry shampoo on my roots. This gives my hair volume and texture and makes it look twice as thick. The trick is not brushing it out til the next morning so it has a chance to work and absorb oil overnight so your hair isn't weighed down. This also allows me to only have to wash my hair twice a week, which has helped offset the damage heat, products and coloring has done to my hair, and helped it get healthier.
