How Can I Get Thick, Full Hair?

Are you of the 80% of women who wish they had thicker, fuller and shinier hair?

We found a great article providing tips for thick, full hair.

From the article...
Celebrities seem to have it and all us normal women want it, what is it? Glossy, thick and flowing locks of course. A-listers would not be seen dead on the red carpet without the perfect accessory of a beautiful head of hair.

Do not fear, there are a few handy hints that if followed correctly could see your thin, lack lustre hair transform into something that even the most a-list celeb would be proud of.

Firstly, have a look at the style of your hair. Is your hair cut appropriate for the style of look that you are going for, or is their any style there at all. A good haircut can do wonders for pumping up the volume.

Next you need to reassess the colour of your hair as the right hair colour can give the illusion of thick hair if done correctly. For thick, full locks have highlights strategically added to your hair to give the appearance volume and texture. This works because the colour contrast that highlights provide will give the illusion of depth and fullness. Hair colouring can actually boost the volume of each individual strand of hair as well. The colouring agents actually push open your hair shafts to deposit the new colour so your hair is physically thickened when you colour your hair.

If you want to achieve thick, full locks then you need to prepare your hair at the shampoo and conditioning stage. Look out for volumizing shampoos and conditioners that contain protein-based ingredients as these proteins will work to thicken your individual hair strands. The proteins attach to the individual strands to build up body and fullness. You can also try spraying a volumizing or thickening product through your damp hair before blow drying it.

The blow drying process itself can make a huge difference to the volume and thickness of your hair. You can experiment with using different diffuser attachments that lift up your hair and encourage body and volume.

Over time for some women their thin and lifeless hair may cause them more problems than just prolonged styling sessions. For some women will notice as they get older or as they go through the process of giving birth that their already fine hair may become even thinner and some may even suffer from bald patches. In some cases there is medical treatment that can be provided but what if you are one of the many women who cant do anything to restore their hair to its former glory?

This is where Hairdreams step in to help. Hairdreams is a gentle and non-invasive method of supplementing and replenishing your own hair with high grade human hair to give you back the thickness and volume that you crave. Bad hair can have a massive negative impact on a persons self esteem, but with Hairdreams your hair will look fabulous everyday!

Von Anthony Salon provides Hairdreams.

Clean hair it transported from the floor/baseboards through a vacuum and collected in a canister at the back of the salon.

"We have never been prouder to be salon professionals."
