How to Give Fine Hair a Volume Boost This Spring

by Viviscal Hair Expert on March 28th, 2018

Spring means a fresh start. So what better time to revamp your hair care routine? Harsh winter weather and dry indoor heat may have left your hair limp and lackluster. Warmer spring temps and sunnier days are the perfect excuses to refresh and give fine hair a volume boost. Before long, your hair will look as full as the blooming spring flowers. Read on for six tips on how to give thin hair a boost this spring.

6 Ways to Volumize Fine Hair this Spring

1. Get a Fresh Cut

If you’ve let your hair grow long over the winter, it’s time to consider a new ‘do. Long hair weighs more, and this added weight tends to pull hair at the roots, leaving hair limp and flat. Visit your hairdresser and ask for a new haircut for spring. Long bobs are very stylish right now, and are a great option for giving fine hair a volume boost.

2. Get a Volumizing Serum

If you’re using a hair serum to add shine to your hair and control flyaways, you’re on the right track. However, many hair serums are too thick and heavy, weighing down fine, thin hair.

Lay the foundation for thicker-looking hair with a lightweight, body-boosting serum. Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir is a leave-in treatment that boosts hair volume with a light infusion of botanicals (like pea sprout extract and lavandula hybrida oil), plus keratin, biotin and panthenol. The nourishing elixir is specially formulated to make your fine hair look thicker and fuller.

3. Switch Your Part

If you always part your hair in the same place, moving your part is an easy way to get a little extra volume boost. Plus, playing with the location of your part is actually better for your hair than rocking the same side part every day. When we wear our hair in the same way every day, we put tension on the same areas of scalp and hair, which can cause breakage. So help keep your hair looking healthy and breakage-free by regularly changing up your look. Then you’ll have the added bonus of a little extra volume!

4. Eat a Hair-Healthy Diet

One of the best things about spring is that more fresh fruits and vegetables are available. Take advantage of nature’s bounty by adding more hair-healthy foods to your diet. Artichokes, kale, asparagus, arugula, kiwis, strawberries, and peas are all in season during the spring.

Not into eating your veggies? We have you covered. Viviscal supplements include many of the same essential vitamins and minerals found in those spring crops (think B vitamins, vitamin C, zinc and iron), plus a few others necessary to promote existing hair growth. Take two tablets a day to support healthy hair growth in any season.*

5. Try Foam Rollers

Foam rollers may seem old-fashioned but they’re actually great for creating volume without damaging hair with heat. Larger rollers create voluminous waves, while smaller rollers will result in tight ringlets. Choose the size roller you want for your look, then wrap dry hair before bed. Remove in the morning and finger-comb for more defined curls, or brush out for a more relaxed look.

6. Change Up Your Hair Care Routine

The conditioners that work on our thick-haired friends may not work on those of us with fine hair. Fine hair requires special, lighter formulas that add moisture to hair without weighing it down. Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Conditioner is formulated to nourish fine hair without adding extra weight for shiny, bouncy locks. In a consumer study**, nine out of 10 women said their hair looked thicker and fuller after one week of using Viviscal Densifying Conditioner, Shampoo and Elixir.
