Tips & Tricks to Increase Hair Density
In the previous article, we tackled the density and volume of our hair. Let us share with you some tips & tricks to make it seem like you have more hair than you do!
After you wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, style your hair with a volumizing spray. However, for hair that is fine and limp, your blow outs become flat in no time and you will need a midday refresher.
Using a dry shampoo can help! By mid day, your scalp's natural oils are already sabotaging your volume, travelling down the hair shaft and starting to weigh down your strands.
With a dry shampoo, you can cleanse the oil and keep your hair bouncy. You can choose the hair powder dry shampoos, but the powder clogs up your pores and you might find yourself itching a lot an hour later.
Phyto has a dry shampoo too, it’s a water based spray called Phytodetox Rehab Mist. It cleanses the hair and scalp, and it is perfect for usage the whole day!
Phytonovathrix Lotion : People with fine hair cannot risk having hair loss. With already so little hair, every strand is precious. Hence, we have to use a Scalp Lotion to keep hair strong and PREVENT hair loss.
Formulated with 99% natural ingredients, Phytonovathrix Lotion is an energising hair mass lotion which gives hair a real boost. Its exceptional active ingredients promote stronger, more resilient growth and its active texture instantly envelopes hair, restoring body and volume without leaving it feeling oily or sticky.
You know the saying – You are What You Eat: insufficient nutrients can be an underlying cause of thinning hair or fine hair. Be sure to add biotin-rich foods into your diet, like nuts, bananas, and egg yolks.
If you don’t think you’re getting enough biotin from diet alone, supplements are also an option.
Phytophanere supplement is the World’s 1st supplement created for hair and it includes all the essential ingredients for healthy hair in one pill. Vit C, Vit Bs, Biotin, Zinc… together with the new Phytophanere shampoo, it’s fabulous for strength and vitality!
Here are some other tips you can try which does not require you to cut your hair or change your haircare routine!
Changing hair partition. Flipping your partition to the opposite side creates instant volume at the crown; if you're worried about looking lopsided, then do it while your hair is still wet. To build the most height, try a deep side part on the opposite side of dry hair.
A favourite of ours is one that zigzags as it gives you a little lift at the roots, and your scalp will show through much less.
After we shampoo, there are a few techniques we can use to increase the volume.
Blow-dry upside down. To seriously defy gravity, flip your head upside down while you blow-dry.
This technique is best for people who do not know how to blow dry. This tip works very well. The reason this works is because upside down, your roots are automatically lifting off your scalp, which is how you want them to dry.
Flip your head back up when your hair is 90% dry and then use your blow-dryer and a big round brush to smooth hair while adding more body. Use medium heat — hot air flattens hair — and only wood or cork-core brushes. You may be tempted to skip the blow dryer, especially if your fine hair dries straight and smooth. But if you skip blow drying, your volumizing work will all be for naught. With almost all volumizers you need to use a blow dryer with heat to activate them.
If you only have about 10-20 minutes before you leave the house, you can set your hair in large Velcro rollers. It'll help the volume last all day.
After blow-drying, you section off pieces of hair at the crown, roll them up into Velcro curlers, and use the cool setting on your dryer to set the style. Finish with a texturizing spray.
Everybody forgets about hot rollers which are awesome! Unlike curling irons and flat irons, there's no special technique required; just throw them in while you're doing your makeup and remove 20 minutes later. This is also a great trick to use if your hair is already dry and it's too late to build volume into your blow-dry.
Crimped hair was big in the '80s, and now it's making a comeback—but in a brand new (and non-tacky) way. By just crimping at the roots, in the under-layers of the hair, it is a fantastic way to rough up the texture and make it stand out from the scalp.
You will get soft, natural-looking volume. The best part is that it only takes a few minutes, and unlike curling irons and flat irons, requires zero expertise. And the top layer of hair completely hides the crimping from detection. Please crimp on DRY Hair not on wet hair. All styling irons must only be used on dry hair.
There are two tricks we see many people using which we advise against:
Back combing, this is not advisable even though it works, it is at the expense of ruining your hair and may trigger the start of hair loss.
Hair Extensions. They are beautiful! However, it stresses your hair & scalp with all the extra weight and it can cause hair loss. Unless it’s for a 1 night event, hair extensions are not advisable! The long termresults can be irreversible.
