Want thicker, fuller hair all the time? If so, you’re not alone. To provide your hair the volume you want, it’s time to rediscover nature’s hidden secrets.
A thicker hair’s diameter is greater than finer hair, and this provides thicker hair with more stiffness and volume. A natural lift is provided by this construction while a bend-over and lie flat appearance is prevented.
Natural volume is usually out of reach for those with finer hair, whose individual hair strands have a smaller diameter structure. It’s possible to obtain volume in shorter hairstyles, but it’s impossible to accomplish in medium- or long-length hairstyles due to the lack of density. At these lengths, finer hair types may encounter hair that collapses by its own weight, making your hair appearing lifeless and flat. There are many techniques available for men with finer hair who want to achieve greater volume.
We’ve gathered some of the finest natural volumizing hair techniques for you guys. Regardless of your hair type, these 10 tricks will help you add the desired volume to your hair quickly.

1. Scalp Massage to Add Hair Volume
One of the top ways to naturally thicken your hair is to massage pure coconut oil into your scalp on a daily basis.
Massage of the scalp stimulates blood flow and hair development. Nine participants participated in a scientific research in Japan that looked at the effects of scalp massage on hair development.
The volunteers received weekly scalp massages for 24 weeks. It was found that once the research was completed, they had thicker hair and more hair growth.
Warm-up some coconut oil and use your fingers to gently massage it into your scalp.
You may also use jojoba oil, pure almond oil, and olive oil instead of only coconut oil.
You can use a heated cloth to soothe your hair after a massage. To stimulate hair follicles and encourage healthy hair development, try doing this once each week at the very least.
You may also use oil masks on your hair. Use the mask 30-60 minutes before washing your hair to nourish and improve the health of your hair.
Blow drying your hair can give it additional volume and help you get the ideal style.
Gravity will help pull your hair up and away from your scalp. Whenever you flip your hair upright, spritz yourself lightly with hairspray and wait approximately 30 seconds for it to set.
To give your hair lift in the correct direction and give it a volumizing look, find the perfect mix of heat and airflow. If you let your hair dry naturally, the power of the airflow will “teach” it to travel in the direction you want. Diffusers, such as hairdryer attachments, allow you to better control and concentrate the airflow so that your hair flows exactly the way you want it to.
However, before hair blow-drying, make sure you apply a heat protection spray or serum.
3. Drink & Eat Right
Junk food, as you are well aware, has a rapid impact on your weight. However, did you realize it may harm your hair as well?
Hair, like your body, benefits from a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, which helps it to grow faster and thicker.
Hair is made up of keratin, which is a polypeptide found in high concentrations in the body. This means that protein is essential for healthy hair development.
Folic acid, biotin, antioxidants, vitamins C and E as well as A and D as well as minerals and other fatty acids are needed for healthy hair development in addition to these primary nutrients.
Vegetables, fresh fruits, dairy products, eggs, nuts as well as a sufficient quantity of protein, should all be part of your regular diet.
Taking these nutrients in supplement form is an option if you want more volume in your hair, but getting them through your food is the best option.
Also, make sure you’re getting enough water in your system to avoid dehydration.
4. Wash Your Hair Correctly
Your hair becomes sticky because of the oil your scalp secretes when it comes into contact with dirt, perspiration, and pollutants. The hair that sticks to your scalp will lay flat, making it difficult to add volume.
This problem may be resolved by using a decent conditioner and washing your hair on a regular basis.
On the flip side, if you’re using a rough shampoo and don’t follow up with a conditioner, your hair and scalp get too dry, which encourages the production of even more oil from the scalp.
It’s best to use a decent shampoo and conditioner every other day while washing your hair.
Avoid over-rinsing your hair to keep it clean.
Avoid washing your hair too frequently, as this will make your scalp become very dry, which will lead it to generate even more oil than it already does.
Washing your hair more often will make your hair more greasy, and this will lead to an endless cycle of greasy hair.
To summarize, you should shampoo your hair at least twice a week, but no more than three or four times per week if possible.
Hair loss has been linked to stress. Stress may cause hair loss and graying, as well as thinning and brittleness of the hair. Yoga and exercise are great methods to relieve stress on a regular basis. In addition to relieving tension, this will increase the amount of blood and oxygen flowing to your scalp.
- Participate in regular physical activity to help you cope with stress and the negative consequences it may have on your health.
- Spend time with individuals who make you feel good – spending time alone yourself may exacerbate stress.
- Practice relaxation methods by learning about them and putting them into practice (such as meditation, yoga or deep breathing) regularly.
There’s no need for hair loss and stress to be permanent. In addition, if you can reduce your stress levels, your hair may begin to regrow.
6. Scrunch your Hair
Scrunch your hair and then let it air dry for a beachy style that’s perfect for summer. Fill a spray bottle halfway with water and three tablespoons of sea salt. Don’t be surprised if you get a few compliments after using the spray. Your roots will be hidden under a tousled style giving you your desired volume.
7. Use Dry Shampoo
After washing our hair, our hair may get very greasy in a matter of hours.
Use a dry shampoo on your hair to remove the grease and give it more volume. You can keep your hair clean without washing it using dry shampoo. Like a powder, it absorbs your hair’s oil, making styling a breeze.
When your hair is greasy and you don’t have time to wash it, this is a fantastic alternative for adding volume. That being said, it’s not a substitute for real shampoo. Dry shampoo removes the grease and oil from your hair, but it doesn’t clean it well, and the dirt stays in your hair. As a result, it’s just a short-term solution, and frequent cleaning is still recommended.
8. Understand the Ideal Hair Product for You
In order to keep your hair from falling flat, you must use the correct hair product.
It is best to stay away from oil-based items like pomades and stick to those that are wax-based, mousse-based, or clay-based. It’s also possible to use products designed to give your hair extra volume.
The use of excessive amounts of product is something else that men often get wrong. Whatever the product’s ability to add volume, using too much of it can result in clumpy, lifeless hair. It is advisable to use a small coin-sized quantity and thoroughly massage your hands together before applying the product to your hair.
9. Get a Haircut
Isn’t it true that long hair is heavier and thus flatter according to the principles of physics? Remove excess weight from your scalp so it can use its own internal volume to create a more dramatic appearance. Cut and style will also have an impact on how full and volumizing the hair appears.
10. Haircare Routine
Use a comb with broad teeth instead of a narrow one. After a hair wash, don’t wrap your hair in a towel; instead, lightly pat it dry with a microfibre towel.
Wear a scarf or a skullcap over your hair when exposed to severe weather conditions like excessive heat or cold.
Even if you were not born with naturally thick hair, getting volumizing hair may be a lot easier than you would imagine.
