After years of hair being very ‘done’ on celebrities, we are finally starting to see a return to the ‘un-done slightly lived-in’ look. Beach hair, bed head, textured hair, what ever you want to call it – if your hair is not naturally thick it can loose it’s impact and look limp and lifeless. Boost volume and texture in fine, limp-like hair with one of these trial & tested thickening products!










Bb Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner is the industry’s go-to when prepping fine hair. With Soy and Whey protein to help thicken, strength and hydrate – along with Silk Powder to reinforce the cuticle making hair look and feel thicker before you even start to style.












If ‘bigger is better’ sounds like something you’d like to try, then this product is for you. Take your blow dry or beach waves to a new level of thickness with Oribe Maximista Thicken Spray. A triple threat – spray to build volume, thickness and texture from roots to ends. Tip; Spray on damp hair from roots to ends before blow drying or defusing, to maximise your results. 















Prep and Soothe

Women are often sacred to use creams when thickening their hair – thinking it will weigh hair down. Not in the case of Redken Thicken Lotion. The bodying, protein-based cream penetrates the hair follicles causing the hair to swell and seriously plump each individual strand, equaling in not only THICKER hair, but also stronger hair due to the protein injection! Tip; Comb through damp hair and dry with a hairdryer for best results. 














A brilliant alternative to dry shampoo, absorbing moisture or oil from the root area (minus the usual powdery residue), along with adding weightless texture, grit and hold from the roots to the tips of your hair. Spray Oribe Dry Texture Spray through hair before and after tonging to maximise volume, thickness & create a sexy lived-in texture OR to refresh and extend yesterday’s blow-dry. Boom!















A daily use treatment, Nioxin Diamax Advance Treatment protects the existing hair roots and helps prevent the ends against damage or worse still breakage. Massage into the roots daily while hair is damp before combing through to dry. Hair is longer, stronger and thicker.
