How to Achieve Fullness & Volume with Thin Hair

Over the past six months I’ve been using Viviscal Canada’s products to thicken and densify my naturally thin hair. Here’s how they worked for me!

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed that for the past six months I’ve been taking the Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements and using the Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo, Conditioner and Elixir. The reason behind this is because I’ve been trying to add fullness and volume to my naturally fine hair. I’m finally done with my supplements and I’ve already run out of the shampoo and conditioner duo, and I can happily say that I’ve seen a big improvement in my hair!

Today I want to share my full experience with these products and hopefully if you’ve been looking for something to help volumize and densify your hair this will be the answer! Please note that this post is sponsored, however I have been using the products for six months and the results shown and stated are truly my own opinions and thoughts.

The products I was using…

Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements

The Viviscal Extra Strength Supplements promote thicker and fuller looking hair, and honestly at first I was skeptical, but after using them for six months I can see how they’ve worked from the inside out to thicken my hair. My natural hair is very difficult to give a voluminous appearance and I used to use a lot of hairspray and hair teasing to achieve a “fuller look”. Now I wake up in the morning and the volume is already there, no joke. My hair also feels thicker rather than fine and weak. This is one of my favourite results from the product as I’ve always wanted thicker hair!

Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo & Conditioner

Over my time as a blogger I have tried multiple shampoo and conditioner duos, and many of them have left my hair looking plain bland. The Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo and Conditioner do the exact opposite and it has become my go-to shampoo and conditioner. When trying out a new shampoo and conditioner I look for a few things; volume, oil control and proper hydration. The Viviscal Gorgeous Growth duo checked all of these boxes for me. I mean duh, I didn’t finish two full bottles for no reason 😛 They have a lovely botanical scent, they properly clean my scalp so it doesn’t feel like there’s residue after showering and upon air drying or blow drying my hair, I can see instant volume and thickness.

Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir

One of the most important parts of my hair routine is hydrating it after I shower. I often use hair oils after towel drying my hair, so adding in the Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir was no problem for me. The Elixir was a pleasant surprise after one application because it didn’t feel like a hair oil, but it provided nourishment and volume. My favourite part about this is that it’s lightweight and it really works well before blow drying and styling!

Before and after…

Although I cut my hair about half way through my Viviscal journey, the improvement in volume and thickness is very obvious. Here’s my before and after…IMG_7310-2.jpg

The before image was taken at the start of my Viviscal journey. My hair was a little longer at that time but it’s evident that it had no form of volume or thickness. In this image I had styled it as regular with my other hair products. That’s about as voluminous as my hair could get LOL.

The after image was taken a couple weeks ago and yes it’s shorter, but WOW the volume and thickness have improved a ton. The last thing I wanted when I chopped my hair off was to have a limp bob, and the Viviscal products I was using helped the most to prevent that from happening. In this photo I’ve styled it using only Viviscal products; shampoo, conditioner and elixir. I blow dried my hair and then straightened it to achieve the final look!

The Best Hair Tie for Thin Hair

Hair can be tricky, kinky, frizzy, and just straight up rude; especially if it’s not taken care of or styled with the correct tools. As a gal with insanely thin hair I’ve had a lot of trouble in the past with hair ties. They would fall out 5 minutes into my workout, create massive indents, and cause a lot of stress when I was in a rush and trying to figure out how to style my hair. No matter what hair type you have there is a hair tie solution, and today I’d like to cover the <<thin >> category for all of my babes out there with a mane that’s fragile AF.

FOR STABILITY & HOLD

Thin hair tends to be quite smooth, causing anything placed in it to fall out, so if you’re a gal that’s looking for a sturdy hold then these textured hair ties will do the trick.

TO PREVENT CREASING

A good ol’ crease just knows how to ruin your day, and believe me I’ve had many of these days. Since thin hair is so fragile it requires a hair tie that prevents breakage of the strands, and through all of my tests and trials the invisiBobble has worked the best. They may look silly at first glance, but they come in a wide range of colours and truly do prevent creasing and keep your hair in place. Check out some of my favourite colours below!

FOR EVERYDAY STYLING & WEAR

You may not always want to rock a textured hair tie or an invisiBobble, so these satin and polyester options are fantastic for thin hair on a day to day basis. Not only are they gentle but they also come in a HUGE selection of styles! I always find gorgeous satin hair ties at Anthropologie so you can check out a few of my faves below.

Having thin hair is a blessing in many ways but definitely requires extra TLC so hopefully this post helps in the way you style it up!
