We reveal the secrets to give volume to hair, take care of your hair and give it back the radiant and healthy appearance it deserves. Objective volume gain !

First of all, what is fine hair?

Zoom on the structure of a hair:

A hair is made up of 95% keratin , a protein also found in nails. Keratin protects hair by forming a waterproof “greasy” film . 18 amino acids make up the hair such as cystine, methionine and arginine (amino acids included in the composition of keratin).

The structure is divided into three parts:

  • Bone marrow (or medula): center of the hair shaft
  • Cuticle : outer protective layer composed of scale cells. It is rich in keratin.
  • Cortex : Main component of hair with long chains of keratin which give elasticity to the hair. It also contains melanin (pigment) responsible for the color of our hair.

Genetics plays a large part in the thickness of our hair. Indeed, our genetic heritage defines the thickness of our hair from our birth. You may therefore have hair that is finer than average (around 70 µm). You will therefore have to take even more care of it!

Fine hair is characterized by a certain fragility and becomes brittle. Damaged hair tends to be dry. The ends become split more quickly.

Aggressive hair care , Sun exposure , stress , atmospheric pollution or hormonal changes : hair can be impacted and become thinner over time.

When blood microcirculation is impaired, the hair bulb no longer receives sufficient quantities of the nutrients essential for structuring the hair. The hair fibers become less dense, possibly porous, and the hair becomes thinner.

The goal is to thicken your hair … But then how to add volume to your hair ?

You are probably wondering if there are products to thicken hair (fine hair volumizer, food supplement for fine hair , fine hair for men or fine hair for women, hair and nail strengthener, hair capsule, etc.). Miracle cures do not exist, however you can adopt a complete care routine and suitable for thin hair And brittle .

A healthy and balanced lifestyle is a good place to start!

How to repair “broken” hair? Treatments to adopt:

A hair that is already split, by definition is considered very damaged and cannot be repaired. To start off on a good basis, only the hair cut is suitable.

Some advice for those who wish to find sheathed hair And glowing with health ...

  • Pamper your hair by choosing adapted care and products : silicone-free, fragrance-free and sulfate-free shampoo. Opt for the naturalness !
  • Make masks based on vegetable oils on the ends and lengths (castor oil, coconut oil, avocado, almond, shea, jojoba… the choice is wide!)

NB: Do not hesitate to mix oils to get the maximum benefits. For a maximized effect, let your mask sit overnight!

  • Space out your shampoos to avoid weakening your hair and to stimulate natural sebum production.

NB: Cold water your friend. In fact, it closes the scales of the hair shaft and activates blood microcirculation. Result: shiny hair and stimulated growth!

  • Visit to the regular hairdresser = healthy hair! Eliminate split ends and bring strength and resistance to your hair!
  • Straightening, blow-drying, coloring… avoid them! They weaken your hair. Favor drying in the open air and the use of natural dyes such as henna (natural sheathing of the hair).
  • Take care of yourself: a little scalp massage stimulates blood circulation and hair growth! Thus, the delivery of nutrients essential to good hair health is improved.

In summary…

Among the gestures and reflexes to avoid : wash your hair daily, use a hairdryer, brush wet hair (this weakens it), use aggressive care products, etc.

Among the gestures and reflexes to adopt : space out shampoos for the natural secretion of sebum, choose gentle and natural shampoos, make moisturizing and nourishing masks, let your hair dry in the open air, brush by hand or wide-toothed comb.
