How to get thicker hair

Noticed your hair feeling thinner and sparser than it once was? Thinning hair is something that’s inevitable for all of us as we age. But if you’re not sure what to do for thinning hair you’ve come to the right place.

The secret to how to make thin hair thicker is all about the products you use to care for it. Everyone’s hair make-up is different, so it’s important you tailor your routine to thinning hair if you want to get the most volume out of it, just as you would optimise your skincare routine for your main skin concerns.

Intrigued? Without further ado, read on for how to make your hair thicker-looking with your haircare regime. You’ll have more voluminous hair in no time.

Get thicker hair in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Shampoo

First things first, start by making sure you’re using the right shampoo and conditioner – this is the base of all good haircare regimes. So, you should start off with a good shampoo for thinning hair.

The Pantene Hair Biology Full & Vibrant Shampoo for enhanced body and fullness contains lotus flower, which is known for its astringent, and antioxidant properties, and helps to fight the signs of ageing to give shine and volume to fine hair. Hair is thoroughly cleansed with no leftover weight to enhance your hair’s natural volume.

Step 2: Conditioner

For your best possible hair health, you should use your conditioner every time you wash to replenish lost nutrients and keep it soft and shiny for good hair days, every day. As well as keeping hair well moisturised, this will also help to keep hair damage levels in check.

Pantene Hair Biology Full & Vibrant Conditioner also delivers moisture to your hair without that “weighed down” feeling afterwards, letting your hair’s natural volume shine through. It nourishes colour damaged hair through an ultra-thin “nano-glacing” that distributes evenly through the hair. Fine hair is moisturised without the usual weight, boosting its fullness.

For a more intense treatment when hair feels a bit dry and unhappy, apply Pantene Hair Biology Full & Vibrant Mask once or twice a week. Tackling dullness and damage, your hair will be healthier-looking and more radiant with just a few minutes’ use. If you have the time, leave on for longer for a really deep treatment.

Step 3: Styling products

As well as your shampoo and conditioner, the products you use to style your hair play a big part in how to get volume in hair.

For thicker looking hair, the Pantene Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment increases the diameter of every single strand, resulting in more visible volume. This one is a leave on root and scalp treatment, designed to be applied to the hair above the ear line and massaged in – and can give the appearance of 6,500 extra strands!

Finish off your style by spritzing Pro-V Perfect Volume Hair Spray all over to add lift and hold from root to tip, for volumised hair all day long. And between washes, blast Pantene Pro-V Volume Booster Dry Shampoo throughout your layers for a lightweight refresh and added texture. Pro tip: Blow dry your hair upside down after applying the formula throughout your hair for extra “oomph”.
