5 Ways Redheads Can Fake Thicker Hair

Everyone wants to have thick, luxurious red locks. Thick hair looks and feels healthy, and has a certain flair to it that thin hair does not have. However, every redhead’s hair is different and not everyone can have the thick hair they may desire. Luckily, there are a few tricks you can pull to make your red hair look thicker & more voluptuous:

1. Hair extensions:

Hair extensions are a great way to fake thick hair. Whether you want to splurge or keep the spending on them to a minimum, any type of extensions you chose will make your hair appear more full, longer, and more beautiful than going natural.

Redhead Friendly Tips: Opt for clip-in extensions. They won’t pull out the hair and you can place them in areas throughout the head to provide volume. And, when you’re sick of them, you simply take them out.

Having trouble finding good quality redhead hair extensions? Opt for auburn or light brown shade that is closest to your hair color, and apply at the bottom of your hair. You won’t be able to tell the difference.

2. Curling:

Curly hair naturally appears a bit thicker than straight hair, so why not try curling your hair for a more thick appearance? Achieve tight or loose curls with a wand, rather than a regular curling iron.

3. Teasing your hair:

Hair teasing is another way to perfectly fake your hair thickness. Volume is key to having thick hair, and that’s exactly what teasing hair creates.

How To Tease The Hair: Section off hair and use a fine-tooth hair comb to tease near the root. Use a flexible hold hairspray because it will keep your teased hair in place without it looking too stiff.

4. Volume:

If you really want thick hair, use volumizing products like Davines This Is A Volume Boosting Mousse or Kenra Professional Dry Volume Burst 3. For added hair volume, try bending your head down when blow-drying your hair.

5. Vitamins*:

Another great option to achieve thicker hair is taking vitamins daily – like SugarBearHair Vitamins. Not only will they help your hair, but they’ll help your whole body to stay healthy and at its best. Folic acid is a great option to make hair longer and thicker, and vitamin D is known to help hair, too.

Rock it like a Redhead!
