Make Your Head Look Fuller

Some of us have very thin locks that we wish we could fluff up a bit and pass on as bigger and fuller. For those who feel they need to scrape it all back into a bun or ponytail (because it doesn’t show how raggedy and sad it is then), here are some tips on how to achieve the look.Let’s start from the most extreme makeover you can do to the least invasive.

Try a Different Head

Ok, that is a little difficult unless you have magical powers. Hair replacement however, is perfectly possible. While this procedure is technically used to treat baldness, specifically male baldness, women can try it too, especially if thinning is a result of premature balding. They will move follicles from a site where your locks are growing strong to a ‘balding’ site. In many cases it is successful but remember that this is a long term thing; if you want a full head of hair by next week’s party, then you’re going to have to look elsewhere.

Fix the Problem at the Root

Transplants like above are more of a ‘cover up’ (no pun intended) than an actual cure. In some cases, thinning and balding can be slowed, reversed or stopped through certain medical procedures. There are vitamins and minerals you can take on prescription by a doctor that will strengthen your hair and prevent fall out. Then there are the herbal remedies like Ayurveda, which recommends using oil, steaming, regular massages, a healthy and balanced diet and other hair loss treatment to prevent fallout and thinning. This is especially true of women who are averse to trimming their locks; the longer it grows the more exposed it is to the elements and has less protection or nutrition from the head, so is at more risk of damage.

Quick Fix for a Night

The easiest way to deal with it is to accept it and then have some cheats to make it seem as though you have a fuller head. There are plenty of hairstyles online that you can do for yourself and make your locks look long and glossy. Stylists are always happy to oblige if you tell them in advance that you need something covered up or altered. One of the simplest things you can do is the technique of ‘teasing’ or ‘back combing’ where you hold onto the end of a strand of hair and comb from end to root. This will cause it to puff up and once you are done with the styling, you can easily hide the tangle by sweeping a few strands over the bun/ponytail/braid you have on your head.
