Men: How can you give your hair volume?

Say goodbye to limp lifeless locks! From treatments to haircuts and hairstyles, read on for our tips on how to give volume to your hair.

Getting soft lightweight locks starts right from the moment you wash your hair, with the use of products suited to your hair type. Every other wash, use densifying shampoos and conditioners to give body to your fine hair. If your locks are quick to go greasy, opt for a purifying range which will rid your roots of the excess sebum which can take your hair’s volume away.

Add depth to your locks

Say goodbye to extreme haircuts: ultra-short styles will get rid of any depth and XXL locks will be weighed down, giving you that limp look. The ideal solution is an unstructured cut with relatively short hair at the sides and some length on top to create volume. A cunning way to hide a lack of depth in just a few snips of the scissors. Your hairdresser can simply put in subtle layers to boost the volume without drastically reducing the amount of hair you have.

Add texture to your locks

To make it look like your hair is naturally thick and to hide a lack of depth, you may need to create movement. To do this, get your hairstyle to hold using a texturizing product which thickens the hair fibre without stiffness. Jean Louis David’s Density Paste is the right product for sculpting and styling. A small amount of product is enough to boost your hair’s volume.

Good to know: massage your scalp briefly before styling to lift the hair at the roots, and your locks will look thicker in the blink of an eye.
