5 Tips For Fuller Looking Healthy Hair*

I have two blog posts going up today, the first one being all about hair and how I try to maintain and look after it. I have such a love/hate relationship with my hair. I have days where I wake up and pretty much need to do nothing to it and I feel so confident and then other days nothing goes right with it. Does anyone else find that? I've noticed over the last year or so that my hair has got much thinner than it used to be so I've been trying to find different ways to get my hair looking full, glossy and healthy.
5 Tips For Fuller Looking Healthy Hair!

Regular Hair Cuts

I've been known to go absolutely ages without a hair cut, far longer than I'd like to admit but since starting to have regular hair cuts again I've noticed a real difference in how my hair looks and feels. Even though I do still have quite long hair, just having a good few inches off it has made my hair look far fuller than before. I think adding layers in had been part of that too so if you're planning a trip to the hairdressers soon, definitely get some added in. They just add volume and movement into your hair and they can really change up your hairstyle without being too drastic.

Dry Your Hair Upside Down

A classic tip for adding some volume into your hair! It's as simple as it sounds, tip your head upside down, let your hair hang down towards the floor and blow dry it. Whilst using the hairdryer, make sure you're gently brushing your hair too to create volume at the roots and more bounce throughout, this also helps prevent any tangles too.

Don't Apply Too Much Heat

Though I just mentioned blow-drying your hair, it's important you don't apply too much heat to it as it can cause more damage than good. I used to be an avid user of hair straighteners, I don't think there was a day I went to school without straightened hair but now years on I'm much more chilled about it and my hair is far healthier because of it. I used to have a load of split ends and my hair just generally didn't feel great so now when I can I like to just quickly towel dry my hair and then leave to do it's thing for a few hours. If I'm in a rush I like to dry it as I mentioned above and as long as I'm brushing as I go along, it dries quite straight anyway but has a decent amount of volume at the roots. Though products like straighteners and curlers aren't always the best sometimes if you're having a bad hair day like I mentioned at the start of this post, nothing else will work so if you do use them, make sure you use a heat protection spray.

Hair Masks

 Over the last year I've really found that hair masks work wonders for creating fuller looking hair. I've only used a few different ones but all of them have given my hair that boost it's desperately needed. The one I've most recently used is from Organic Shop and almost instantly I noticed a difference. Even the next day I woke up to bouncy looking hair and I really didn't need to do anything else to it. If you'd rather not use one like that though you can create your own so you know exactly what's going into it. You can find an array of ideas on Google and some ingredients you might already have in! Using items like olive oil which nourishes your hair, avocados for a deep conditioning effect and honey for growth are just a few things which can be made into masks for a fuller and healthier finish.

If you don't find any of these are working for you, then take a look at hair restoration procedures which are offered at The Harley Street Hair Clinic. Advanced Tricho Pigmentation, or ATP, replicates the appearance of natural hair follicles and tiny hair strokes. This treatment can be used to add the appearance of density for anyone that feels their hair is thinning, and it can be used on different areas of the scalp to create a head of hair that looks natural and realistic.

Do you have any tips for keeping your hair healthy?
