Volumizing thin and flat hair

           Having thin hair, is a curse I would never wish upon anyone! You’d think it would be easy to manage and low-maintenance, right? Well, you are wrong! Thin hair is anything but low-maintenance. I have to use an army of products just to add a tiny bit of body to my hair. Not to mention the amount of heat I need to use to give my hair that body.  It is a pain in the butt!
         After years of trying different products and experimenting with dozens of sprays and treatments to add thickness and body to my hair, I have found a system that works great! Follow the steps below to add some lift to your ‘do!

1.) Volumizing shampoo and conditioner.
            -Many people don’t see the importance in what type of shampoo and conditioner they use. Truth is, the shampoo and conditioner you use in the shower is the beginning of your styling process. Using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner leaves your hair feeling weightless and easier to add volume too.
 2.) Root boosting spray.
            -Spray the roots of your hair after towel drying to add lift to the roots and give your hair a little bit of body. 
 3.) Thickening spray/mist.
            -Unforutanetely, there isn’t much you can do to obtain thicker hair. However, there are ways to give the illusion of thick and full hair! Thickening mists do just that. Spray the mist all over damp hair to give the illusion of thicker hair.
 4.) Volumizing gel.
            -Running volumizing gel through the roots of your hair will give your hair a huge boost of volume and make your hair look and feel bigger.
 5.) Blow dry.
            -After you are done “chemically inducing” your hair, get ready to torture it a little more with the handy dandy blow dryer! Make sure to lift your hair at the roots while blow drying for additional volume.
 6.) Argan Oil *OPTIONAL
            -This step is optional because it doesn’t really add volume or texture but, it does help sooth your hair after the hell you just put it through. Running a little Argan Oil through the ends of your hair will make it feel softer and look healthier. Not to mention that it smells great!

After completing steps 1-6, grab your key’s and go for a drive because girl, you look fabulous! (;
