What are tips to make my hair look fuller?

ANSWER

Some easy styling tips for fuller-looking hair:

  • Go for “volumnizing” or “thickening” shampoos, mousses, and products
  • Find a great barber or stylist who knows how to work with your hair type
  • Switch your part. If you’ve always worn your hair parted on the left, try shifting it to the right or center. Color your hair. The dye thickens your strands and the right shade can minimize the gap between your hair and scalp
  • For mild to moderate hair loss, fiber hair cosmetics can add volume quickly. The statically charged fibers that you sprinkle over your hair to make it look thicker
  • Hair weaves, extensions, pieces, wigs, and toupees will give you the look of a fuller head of hair
