Volumizing your hair is mostly dependent on the types of product you are using. Too much product or too little product can have a negative impact on your thin hair.

Considering balayage or shades also creates an illusion of thicker hair.

Also, whatever products you use to keep your hairstyle in place either it be a hair gel or a hair spray, apply it at the roots of your hair first as this would provide your hair a great voluminous and an enthralling look.
