Are your locks looking a bit strawy? Are you desperate to learn how to get thicker hair? We have the solution for you! Here at Savers, we believe that sexy hair is the key to everyday confidence. This guide will take you through how you can achieve your #hairgoals without spending salon prices!
Step one: Take Supplements
Vitamins are a great way to promote hair growth, strength, and shine. Just taking once capsule a day could turn your weedy hair into a do even Rapunzel would be envious of! We recommend taking supplements that include Vitamin A, B, C and D as these keep your body is best working condition. Iron and Zinc are also great for thickening up your hair.
An A-Z vitamin would do the trick just fine, however at Savers we do a more tailored vitamin for Hair, Nails and Skin, ensuring that you get the natural volume that you crave at the prices that you love!
TOP TIP: Remember, be patient! Vitamins are part of a lifestyle change, and the results may take some time. Try adding more protein and oils in your diet to help your chances of thicker looking hair.
Step two: Don’t Over Wash
We all love the feeling of soapy suds in our hair while we put on an incredible in-shower-show for your shampoo bottles. However! Washing your hair too much can dry it out leaving looking dull and stringy. We don’t encourage skipping showers all together, just reduce the amount of time you wash your hair to twice a week. Make an evening of it – some much deserved you time plus the higher chance of getting thicker hair. It’s a win win!We understand that greasy hair is not the sexiest but here at Savers, we have some creative ways of styling your ‘Day 3’ hair with elegance.
- Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is not just something you take on a camping trip. It is the perfect way to make greasy hair look fresh. Just spray into your roots and say goodbye to the grease and hello to fabulous volume. For the best results in tips 2 & 3 we suggest using dry shampoo beforehand to give you that extra boost.
TOP TIP: If you have ran out of dry shampoo, you can use talc powder for the same thing! Make sure you rub it in well … you don’t want a scalp that looks like a baby’s bottom!
2. Plait your hair
Whether it is French, duch or cornrows, plaits can hide a multitude of sins! It makes the hair look neat and tidy while being super stylish. Try not to make the braids too tight as this can pull the hair at the front of your face back, which can begin to thin it if you do it too often. Soft, loose braids is the elegant way to style greasy locks.
3. The Messy Bun
Thank goodness for the messy bun! A timeless hairdo that has saved us for decades. It has to be done with a certain flair to avoid looking like Ms Trunchable from Maltilda, but with Savers Cable Elastics that won’t be a problem! The coiled design reduces the risk of breakages when pulling it out of your hair and it’s invisible, so will give you the secret volume that we know you will love! Make sure to back comb the hair on the crown of your head and bit on the ends before putting it into a bun to give you that extra va-va-voom!
Step three: Find the right products for your hair
If you love to embrace your curls or are obsessed with your straight strands, the most important thing is knowing how to cater to your hair. Here at Savers, we have a wide range of hair products that tailor to all different hair types, guaranteed to give you thickness and strength. Read our blog on different hair types to find products perfect for you!
Step four: Use hair oils
Restoring your hair’s natural oils is the perfect way to cultivate hair growth. Biweekly, massage a hair oil into your scalp and let it sit for up to an hour. Wash it out with your favourite shampoo and conditioner to reveal gorgeously silky locks! If your hair is particularly dry, we recommend raking a small amount of oil through the ends of your hair after every wash.
TOP TIP: Avoid putting oil on your scalp too regularly as this can cause hair to get greasy and increase the need to wash it. A good massage once every few weeks will renew your hair follicles without leaving your hair greasy. Perfection!
Step five: Reduce heat styling
Using heat on your hair is a sure fire way to drying it out. Dry hair can lead to breakage and fall out, ultimately leaving you with weedy, sad-looking hair. We definitely don’t want that! Although it is sometimes just in our destiny to have a blow dry and a heated curl to showcase our sexy barnet, at Savers we don’t encourage you to do this often. There are lots of alternative ways to curl and style your hair without heat!
Wrap your damp hair around some socks (preferably clean ones!) Cover them with a hair net to sleep. In the morning take the socks out to reveal beautifully bouncy curls!
Top Tip: Double up on the socks if you want looser curls or use smaller socks for tighter curls.
Not only can plaits be used to disguise greasy hair, but they are also a great way to style without heat! If you plait damp hair and leave overnight, when you take them out the morning you will be left with gorgeous beach waves! Spray a bit of hairspray on them and you’ll be ready to go!
For curly haired beauties who fancy a change, it can be hard to find a method of straightening without whacking out the ghd’s! All you need is a hair dryer, heat protection spray and a paddle brush. Spray your hair with heat protection before blow drying your hair on the lowest setting on your hair dryer. Follow your hairdryer with your paddle brush to create a straighter look.
Top Tip: If you have lots of hair try sectioning it before you blow dry, this will make this task a bit less daunting!
By reducing the amount of heat you use on your hair, you are allowing the natural oils back in. This will encourage growth and strength in your hair, resulting in the gorgeous locks you have always dreamed of!
Step six: Brush from end to root
A really simple change that guarantees thicker hair is brushing from end to root. Starting from the bottom of your hair and working your way up will reduce breakage, ultimately leaving you with thicker hair. Use a detangling spray before you brush to help get through the knots. At Savers we have a variety of products that will make the tedious task of brushing hair feel like a salon experience.
Step seven: Fake it ’til you make it
For those who want thick hair but don’t want to ditch the hair dryers, we have got you covered! We have a couple of tricks that will make your hair look thicker than ever before.
Root Spray: Spraying your roots will not only cover unwanted greys, it will create the illusion of salon styled thicker hair. If you are partial to a tight ponytail or have generally thinning hair, putting root spray at the front of your hair while it is up is the perfect way to dupe thick hair!
Volumizing Powder: It’s in the name! Whether it is for a show stopping hair extravaganza or just to give your messy bun a lift, using volumizing powder is a guaranteed way to give you the extra boost you need.
TOP TIP: If powder is too messy for you, we have volumizing spray. This compacts the power of powder into a can so you can take that volume with you anywhere!
Now it’s time to show off your thicker looking hair off to the world thanks to Savers! You’re Welcome!
