This shampoo promises long-term results by gradually strengthening your hair's three weak spots: the scalp, roots, and mid-shaft to ends.
While your hair begins its thickening recovery process, use this tip from stylist Lucy Flint: "When your hair is looking limp, lightly mist it with water and then spray with a root-lifting booster spray. Use your hands and a towel to manually rough-dry your hair until it's mostly dry. Then, using a round brush, smooth out the pieces around your face by blow drying them forward, along with the top layer of the hair. Turn your head upside down and spritz hairspray all over."
While Bumble and Bumble's Full Potential range of products works gradually over time to deliver lasting results (see above), their Thickening line is for anyone who wants an instant, cosmetic improvement. After using this shampoo, your hair will appear miraculously full, then you're free to style it as you please.
Regenepure DR is a powerful shampoo for combating hair loss with nourishing ingredients that will properly cleanse and prepare the scalp to absorb the nutrients from the NT and Biotin Conditioner. Formulated with effective ingredients such as Niacin, Vitamin B6, Saw Palmetto Extract and Zinc Oxide, the DR will become a staple in your hair maintenance routine. Regenepure DR is also made with the soothing ingredient aloe vera. You get the best results when alternating the DR with Regenepure NT.
Build noticeably fuller hair with this protein-rich volumizing shampoo. And while you're at it, get a trim. According to Di Bianco, your actual cut is just as important as the products you use. If your hair is long but the ends are thin, you are fooling no one into thinking you have more hair than you do by keeping those stragglers on the bottom. Let them go and embrace a slightly shorter 'do. "A well maintained, blunted edge will help maintain the weight at the ends and make your hair look fuller and healthier," she says.
As you've probably noticed by now, most of the recommendations here are shampoos. And for good reason. "Fine hair can be challenging, but product is the key to success, and shampoo is the first step," says Decosimo. Laritelle's organic shampoo acts as a scalp stimulant, increasing blood circulation to hair follicles to promote hair growth. The shampoo not only prevents premature hair loss, it will also noticeably help boost the strands you do have.
Like with mousse, those with skimpy strands often avoid using conditioner because they believe it's too dense and heavy. And while this may be true of some ultra-moisturizing conditioners, Samy's "0" Calories Thickening Conditioner is specially formulated to be completely weightless and features a blend of natural proteins that work to penetrate hair strands and increase their diameter.
"Never skip conditioning your hair," says Decosimo. "Doing so will cause damage since without conditioner the hair cuticle is not sealed. It's like moisturizer for your skin; you wouldn't walk out the door without it, because your skin needs protection."
