How to add volume to fine hair

Struggling to add volume to flat and fine hair? Don't worry, we've got you covered!

Step 1: Prepare your hair

First things first - prepare your hair by washing it with products that are designed to add volume, such as our série expert Anti-Gravity Effect Volumetry Shampoo and Conditioner. Our Volumetry range is specifically designed to target flat, fine hair and leave it looking volumised from the root to achieve hair which looks fuller.

Step 2: Select your styling products

Fine hair requires products designed to create volume that lasts! Hair sprays can be good as they’re relatively light. Dry shampoos are another excellent way of creating additional body, particularly if you don’t want to wash your hair daily. If you need to restyle daily why not try our Volumetry SOS Volume Spray to save your style on the go? It is a dual action volumising spray, that helps reduce the appearance of oily build-up at the roots and leaves hair looking fresher with more body through the lengths. Conveniently small enough to fit in your handbag, SOS Volume Spray ensures on-the-go root lift and body, for easy to maintain styles.

Step 3: Blow-dry to create volume

When styling fine hair, create as much lift as possible at the root area – Try styling your hair with your head upside down. To build body, blow-dry hair at the roots in the opposite direction to the way you like to wear it, then shape into place when it’s dry.

Step 4: Seek professional advice

Why not request a professional haircare consultation from your hairdresser? They can assess your hair needs in more detail. You can use our salon locator to find your nearest L’Oréal Professionnel salon and book yourself in for an appointment today!
