7 Ways to Make Your Fine Natural Hair Look Fuller ...


Naturally curly hair is often thought of as also being naturally thick.

Well, that may be true for some curlies but not all.

Some of us dream of having thick hair and wonder how to make our own appear fuller.

Several factors like health, genetics, and medicine impact natural hair density but a few simple tips and tricks will make our hair look bigger when we want it to.

If you are wondering how to increase the volume of your kinks and curls at any time, then give some of these suggestions a try.

1. 70/30 Dry

70/30 Dry

This one is an oldie but a goodie, and for good reason: it works.

If you want fuller looking natural hair let nature do the work.

Cleanse according to your regular method, lightly apply product, squeeze out excess water and allow hair to air dry.

This simple - albeit time consuming - technique helps your hair achieve a richer, fuller look.

As your hair dries lift and separate into small sections to allow maximum airflow and increased volume.

2. Twist It up

Twist It up

We know that twists and braids add definition and sculpture to our natural hair.2

Those same techniques also add volume, especially on dry hair.

Here I suggest two variations on what I like to call the 70% rule: 1) twist or braid wet hair and allow to dry about 70% before unbraiding OR allow hair to dry 70%, twist or braid then air dry to 100%.

This technique gives our hair nice definition and extra volume.3

3. Pick Those Roots

Pick Those Roots

Many of us kinky/curly/coily-q's suffer from flat-top syndrome.

We go through the motions of cleansing our hair, applying product, and scrunching our strands only to have the top dry flat.

Well, nearly anyway.

Remedy flat-toppedness (yep, made that up) by lifting your roots.2

Use a pick or wide-toothed combs to really get in there and lift those roots - do not tease.

This method helps separate sections at the roots giving the appearance of an all-around fuller mane.
