When to Use Hair Extensions for Volume
Maybe you like the length of your hair already but just want to give it a little extra life – using hair extensions to add volume is the answer.
Do you have a particular hairstyle in mind that you wanted to try? A lot of the time, hairstyles are much more achievable when you have more hair to play around with. Thick hair does not only allow you to try out more styles but it can also help to give your hairstyles impact.
A thick ponytail is a chic and modern way to add a little glamour. You could also try out braided hairstyles, messy buns and classy updos.
If you have thinner hair, you might want to use hair extensions more frequently to give your hair a naturally thicker look. When wearing hair extensions frequently you need to ensure you choose the right attachment method so that your natural hair does not become damaged.
It is also important to ensure that your hair extensions have been accurately colour matched and blended into your natural hair for a seamless look.
Whilst you might be happy with your hair overall, for a special occasion you want to feel your very best. Adding a little extra volume for a wedding, party or event could help to give you that little confidence boost and give you the hair of your dreams!
Naturally, your hair grows at different rates, resulting in a tapered look towards the bottom of the hair due to the shorter and longer strands.
Full Head vs Half Head
Choosing between a full head and half head of hair extensions will depend on how much volume you want. In most cases, when people just want to add volume rather than length, a half head of hair extensions is enough. A full head can give a more dramatic overall look or may be more appropriate if you have particularly thin hair.

Tease Your Roots
Use a comb to tease your hair slightly at the roots. It helps to give your hair just a little extra height. Be careful not to over tease; you don’t want to damage your hair or bring back the 80s look.
Use Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner
Volumising shampoo can be used to both cleanse and enhance the volume of your hair. It uses a unique blend of panthenol, silk, milk and wheat proteins to add volume to the hair without causing build up.
Use Volumising Styling Products
When styling your hair you could use a volumising mousse or lotion. These products build body and give long-lasting hold, even in humid weather conditions. It can be applied to add texture and volume, whilst also enhancing shine and manageability.
Give Yourself a Salon Blow Dry
