Although it might not come naturally, today we will be sharing tips and tricks to make your hair appear fuller. We'll go through products that specifically target fine hair and styling tips to  that will  give you the illusion of  thicker locks. So sit back, relax and find out how you can achieve those fuller looking hair!

Starting from the inside

Now to set the record straight, I am by no means a nutritionist. However as most of you have probably heard, diet can play a vital role in your hair health. Some foods such as Whey protein, blueberries, eggs and fish contain nutrients that are known to promote stronger hair and nails.

However, regardless of whether you consume these nutrients through food or vitamins, they can take time to work. Today we will be looking at instant ways to make your hair look fuller while these nutrients do their magic.

1. Hair Mousse

For fine hair, using a mousse after you shower will provide you with extra lift. The trick is to put an egg sized amount on to damp hair, starting from your roots then heading towards the ends. It is also important to comb and dry the product using your fingers. When you use a blow-dryer, the strands often get flattened against your head. So make sure to use your fingers and pull hair away from your scalp for best results.

The Lakme K. Style natural boost flexible mousse is ideal for fine hair. We love that it creates a very soft, yet full structured look. On top of it making your hair appear full of body, it also conditions and detangles your strands.

2. Switch up your hair part

Just like people, your hair can get stuck into the routine of falling into the same spot everyday. So for instant hair volume, switch up your normal hair part. Try a left side part, right side part of straight down the middle! Switching it up every so often will make your hair appear fuller for that day.

That being said, changing up your hair part can make you look completely different. So if you don't like the look of a different part, then don't worry, we got you covered! Instead of committing to a new style, just part your hair on a different side, spray it with hairspray and leave it like that for a couple minutes. Then you can flip it back to its normal style.

To attain the ultimate lift, try the TIGI Catwalk Root Boost Spray. This spray gives your hair so much volume at the roots and is very long-lasting. It's best for a dramatic look and adds strength, elasticity and smoothness without weighing down the hair strands.

3. Use hair fibers

Some of us just aren't blessed with a full head of hair. For those who have fine hair and are concerned about their hairline or "balding" patches, hair fibers are for you!

To see if you really need this product, let me ask you a few questions. Do you ever notice sections of your head where there is less hair? Do you see your scalp in certain areas when you tie your hair up? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should definitely consider Hair treats hair building fibers.

When you don't have a lot of hair, getting that full ponytail can be a challenge. Although you use extensions to recreate this look, not everyone wants to invest their money into purchasing hair extensions. A very quick and inexpensive alternative is to use a hair clip.

Start by putting your hair into a normal medium to high ponytail. Then split the ponytail into 2, a top and bottom section. Next you want to clip the middle section in between the 2 pieces. Then let the top section fall over the clip to give a thicker and more volumized appearance.

5. Pancake out your braids

In order to recreate a full looking braid like Rapunzel, a good technique is to "pancake" it. What this means is that you need lightly pull on the sides of the braids to make them appear wider and thicker. This technique will work with any type of braid and instantly makes it look like you have a lot of hair! I do this to all my braided styles and love the effect.
