What are Some Ways to Get Fuller, Healthier Hair?


Keeping your hair in tip-top shape doesn’t have to be a chore. Just get into a good hair routine and you should start seeing dividends in no time.

Shampoo AND condition it
Probably the easiest change to make is choosing the right shampoo and conditioner. Get a personalized recommendation from your SmartStyle stylist for a system that will keep your hair healthy and full.

One of the recent favorites is the DESIGNLINE Expandability shampoo and conditioner. It has a great fresh scent and works with ingredients that bulk up the hair, resulting in a thicker appearance.

Style it
There are a lot of options when it comes to styling and finishing products that will help your hair look fuller. Blow drying after putting in a bodifying product, like Paul Mitchell Extra Body Daily Boost is one way. Another is to use a matte finisher. It’ll add some bulk to fine or thin hair. Check out Sexy Hair Powder Play Texturizing Powder. It’s just one great option. And lastly, maybe give mousse a shot. Its hair-coating polymer action adds some body to your hair’s strands. We recommend Paul Mitchell Extra Body Sculpting Foam.

Massage it
Not only do they feel great, but scalp massages also make for healthier hair. Try rubbing your scalp for a couple of minutes as part of your washing and conditioning routine. This will stimulate blood flow, which can help promote hair growth.

Cut it
Use a little magic trick on your hair: Make sure your haircut features a look that’s a little longer on the top in relation to the sides. This will give the illusion that the top is fuller than maybe it really is.

Getting your hair cut more often will also help it look and stay healthier. As the hair strands age, they tend to break, frizz, and split. Get those broken ends taken off and your hair will hold its shape better, take product better, and generally look better.
