Listen. I don't have too many complaints about my hair. I've said it a couple of times, and I'll say it again: I'm pretty low-maintenance (and to be honest, pretty lazy) about it. I don't color my hair. I rarely style it, and when I do, I'm not the best at it. And I don't use too many hair products.
But if there's one thing that's super important to me in the hair department it's how thick my hair looks and feels. Unfortunately, I don't have the fullest strands, and most of the time, my hair can feel kind of flat and lifeless. I'm always dreaming of big, bouncy hair.
To give you an idea of what I'm dealing with, let me break it down for you. I might try to put my hair in big rollers or curl it, and for a while, it looks perfectly styled and full, but guaranteed, just a few hours later, my hair becomes flat and stick-straight again.
While I can't get the big hair that I want all the time, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to pumping up the volume when I really need it. That's where hair-thickening products come in, and luckily, there are so many to choose from, including shampoos and conditioners, powders, sprays, serums, and more.
Now, if you're in the same boat when it comes to wanting full, thick, and voluminous hair, I've compiled a list for us. Take a look at some of my favorites below plus some other highly rated ones I've found.
Shampoos and Conditioners
R+Co's Dallas shampoo is my go-to. Not only does it make my hair feel so much fuller, but it also does a good job of nourishing and strengthening it. In addition to biotin, the formula contains provitamin B5, saw palmetto berry extract, coconut oil, and loquat fruit extract.
With over 12,000 ratings and 4.5 out of five stars on Amazon, this shampoo-and-conditioner set is highly recommended. It protects against more thinning and breakage thanks to ingredients like biotin, argan oil, and an herbal blend of 17 DHT blockers.
This volumizing paste turns into a foam shampoo to gently cleanse the hair, rebalance the scalp, promote shine and color intensity, and, of course, boost body. And if you prefer to wash your hair every few days, you'll like that the paste absorbs oils and dirt so you don't have to worry about your hair not feeling fresh.
Serums and Treatments
Sometimes, your hair could be limp or flat because it's damaged, so this mask can help bring it back to life. It will smooth and hydrate the hair while also adding some volume. You just need to leave it on for five to 10 minutes, and then rinse it off.
Briogeo's ultra-fine powder adds volume and texture but doesn't leave any residue. It also contains ginseng and ginger root, which stimulate blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles, which can then stimulate hair growth.
