Skinny is great for jeans, pasta and margaritas. But for your hair? Not so much! After all, if Rapunzel had fine, thin hair, her prince charming could never have worked his way up the tower to her rescue. But the reality is, fine thin hair happens. Blame it on heredity, blame it on hormones, blame it on the passage of time, blame it on neglect. Regardless, more stylists report that clients bemoan their fine, thin hair than any other situation in the salon. So what’s a princess with fine, thin hair going to do? Check out these volumizing hair tips for the best way to thicken your hair.
Choosing the correct Shampoo & Conditioner
Many women use the wrong shampoo for their hair. As you likely know, fine hair can look oily, even after only one day, and your shampoo may not be helping matters. Neal & Wolf Amplify Volumising Shampoo & Conditioner is the perfect choice as it's designed to cleanse and enhance hair using a unique blend of panthenol, silk, milk & wheat proteins to give a gorgeous, glossy lift. Amplify conditioner is created to detangle & nourish hair. Its unique blend of shea butter & silk proteins enhances volume without build-up to create big, bouncy hair. Apply Amplify conditioner to mid-lengths and ends of your hair and avoid condition the scalp as you will only weigh down your flat hair even more.
Towel TipsSkip the vigorous rub-a-dub-dub if your hair is fine and thin. Instead, gently blot your hair with your towel when you step out of the shower. Another great idea? Use a water-absorbing microfiber towel to avoid roughing up the cuticle. Doing so will make your blow-dry easier and eliminate frizz.
Blow-Dry for Longevity
A great blow-dry at the salon can last for two to three days, even on oily hair. You can actually give yourself a salon-quality blow dry as long as you have the right products and tools.

Technique is Key
Start by towel-drying your hair until it's as dry as possible. When it comes to fine hair, a "rough dry" is key. Remove the nozzle attachment to your dryer (it concentrates heat and can flatten hair). Blast the air all over your hair while roughening up the roots with your fingers. Bend over at the waist and blow-dry your hair, this adds lift to the roots. Once your hair is about 50% to 75% dry, section it off and dry from underneath. Pull hair up towards the ceiling with your brush and shoot the hair up and along the shaft to add body. Put your nozzle back on—a diffuser also helps point the air in a specific direction—and finish drying.
Neal & Wolf Control Flexible Styling Hairspray, our first aerosol hairspray, is designed to give a flexible hold to finished hair. Spray on to finished hair to give control all day long. To achieve more hair volume, one of the best hairspray tips is to hold your head upside down and shake your hair while spraying. You can also spray in between the layers of your hair when you're sealing in your look.
