6 Smart Party Hairstyle Hacks For Thin Hair

If you have thin hair, we sympathize, especially this time of the year ! Arab hair is thick and luscious so when you show up at the hairdresser he unfortunately uses a similar technique on your not so thick hair. A very hot blow dryer and very aggressive hair brush to tame those thick. Ultimately your hair picks up all the static in the room, so now you have flat, static-filled hair… How does the hairdresser try and remedy that ? With hair spray and back combing of course, plenty of it… CIIN gives you six great tips on how to handle your hair and the season.

1 || Turn It Around

You need to see things differently… Many of us assume that the hairdresser will give us volume but the truth is, the volume needs to be created from the start. Volume shampoos really do work, and don’t forget to use a conditioner…It will only weigh your hair down if you use it too close to your scalp. Follow with volume-enhancing styling spritz.

2 || Cool It !

The single worst culprit is the hot hair dryer, you seriously don’t need it. Although it’s great to tame thick hair, it will flatten your fine hair in an instant. Compare it to a hot clothing iron… You don’t need to eliminate the body in your hair, you need to work with it. Keep the blow dryer cool and work with your natural body. Watch your hairstylist take out all your natural body with hot air, only to add volume with some seriously terrible back combing later. All with good intentions of course !

3 || Let’s Do the Wave

The single most effective way to add more volume to your hair is with some natural waves. By natural we mean non-uniform (we don’t need to look like a Jewish rabbi)… The best thing you can invest in is a curling wand (basically a curling iron without the clip) it will create natural-looking curls in an instant, from the comfort of your own home.
