Fine hair: top volume effect treatments and tips to adopt
With a diameter up to 4 times smaller than a “normal” hair, thin hair need special attention to sport a nice volume. Exit excessively rich formulas which can seal the roots and make the scalp. The right reflex? Opt for care for formulas full of volumizing active ingredients. The most effective:bamboo extract which strengthens the hair by penetrating directly inside the hair fiber, and theyarrow which tightens the pores of the scalp to straighten the hair from the root. Other assets, red algae coat the hair fiber to give it more body and volume. The extra tip: poorly rinsed hair may appear thinner when dry. In the shower, take as much time to rinse your hair as you took to apply your shampoo, hair conditioner and other care.
