I have thin hair and have found that past a certain length, there isn't much you can do to keep it from looking, well, thin. More length = more weight; weight x gravity x time = flat hair. Unfortunately.

There's all the stuff you read and hear about - blow dry hair upside down, use a volumizing mousse/wax/pomade and scrunch at the roots, sleep with your hair in pigtails, use hot rollers, etc. - and I can't say that it won't work for you, but I never got any significant volume until I cut my hair short. And even then it was still thin.

Even with short hair, none of the volumizing products worked for more than a few hours, with one (currently discontinued, blah!) exception. But mine is stick straight, thin, fine, and I have a both a weirdly shaped cranium and a slightly odd growth pattern, both of which accentuate my hair's thinness.

Oh, one more thing - I do the whole "no 'poo" thing, and my hair has more body and grip than before. So you may want to look into that, although the trade-off is that it doesn't give you that really silky, slippery hair that many people like.

^ you are so right. you can give your hair temporary volume but usually its VERY temporary and you can still tell beyond the first glance that the person's hair is not NATURALLY full.

i find the morning after washing my hair is always the best, 2nd day is okay, and by 3rd day it's about as unvoluminous as can be...

Has anyone tried Rene Furterer? I hear his hair care products works wonders on thin or thinning hair. I just ordered two of his products...the regenerating complexe 5 oil which helps promote healthy scalp with essential oils. With that your hair grows healthier, thicker, and longer. Plus I've read reviews on sephora, makeup alley, and amazon that the oil actually helps poeple with oily hair. His line is also for men not just for women. And then I bought his stimulating shampoo.

They are really expensive but I've just read so many great reviews I had to splurge!

I will update once I get the products!

Has anyone tried Kerastase Volumactive? I might just go for it. My hair literally collapses after a couple of hours after I've washed it, and then it's just...flat.

Not to follow a question with a question, but has anyone tried the Shen Min stuff? I've seen it advertised, but I'm a bit wary. I tried Nioxin, and while it does work with new hair growth, the trade off for me is that it irritates the eczema on my scalp.

My hair thinned due to poor diet and it's starting to come back now after more than a year of eating healthy and taking supplements, but it's still not back to the (still thin) thicker version of prior years. I've been searching for something other than Rogaine to slap on my head, but so far, no luck.

oil your hair atleast twice a week.. massage it gently into ur scapl and wash it off after 2 hours.
castor oil gives best results for a lot of people.. try mustard oil too (smells horrid but its worked for many!)

I just ordered Kerastase Volumactive Expansion Spray. Hope it works. I don't want my hair to be thicker, I want it to have more volume. I have lots of hair actually, but it's really fine, and it looks sooo flat when it's long. I haven't found a hair cut that allows me to have long hair and some volume too, it's one or the other
