Ladies, do you see this? I have dark circles under my eyes and my eyebrows, they need to be waxed so badly. This is the look of a tired mom. Oh, so exhausted but, that hasn’t kept me away from you guys, okay? Not at all. Never.
So, ladies, it’s Cass from cassandrebeccai.com where I teach you how to manage your Afro-textured hair. Today, I’m coming at you with a subscriber question. You know it’s going to be a good one, right?
It is from Sabin and she says this in her email:
“My hair is fine in the middle and in the very front of my hair but, it thins out on the sides. You could practically see my scalp even if I have hair on my head. It’s so frustrating, aargh!
The hair on the side of my head stays thin even when I cut my hair. It grew but, it was still relatively thin. Please let me know if you have any insight or advice on this matter.
Ah, yes. The question that get all the time, “how to make fine hair appear thicker?“
Well, I do have a few tips for you.
#1: Separate, separate, separate
The first I would say is to separate, separate, separate. Never ever ever take out a twist out and just leave it like that. Your hair won’t look as thick as you want it to. You want to separate from the roots to the tips to create a volumizing effect.
#2: Curl your hair.
The second thing I want to encourage you to do is to curl your hair. Use the technique of Bantu knot out, curl formers, whatever you have to do to get those curls in your head.
What that does is take up scalp space so, it just creates volume. It’s always in style. I love curls and I think they are great for someone who wants to make their fine hair to look thicker.
#3: Spritz hair with water.
The third thing I want to encourage you to do is to spritz your hair with water. When you’re done doing a twist out and twist outs still looks not as full as you’d like it to look well, if you spritz a little bit of water, that will create a little bit of frizz but, it will give you that volumizing look that you’re going for, that volume look that you’re going for.
So, try that.
#4: Bunch your hair.
Number four, I say to bunch your hair. Now, I find when I want to create like a really dramatic look with my hair to make my hair look like more than it is, I’ll bring my hair into an Afro-puff or kind of bring it all in the middle or the side and what that does is well, basically their strength in numbers. So, the more hair you have to one section, the more hair it looks like you have.
I think that’s a really good trick.
#5: Use volumizing products.
The fifth thing I would say to do is to use volumizing products. Now, if you are protein sensitive it might not be so good for you but, you can try natural products, natural treatments such as henna or, you could just go to your regular store and buy conventional volumizing product which will create the illusion of thicker hair.
Now, if you have fine hair, there’s really not much you can do in terms of your diet to help it because it’s just genetic but, there are different ways that I mentioned and there’s probably more, too which I want you ladies to share down there, things that you can do, techniques that you can use to make your hair look thicker.
Ladies, I know that you have some advice, too. Please share it and check out cassandrebeccai.com.
