    Steer clear of hair that is all-one colour or very dark in tone as both can contribute to hair looking thin and flat. By adding lighter and darker tones to the base colour, it adds texture and depth to the hair so it appears thicker.

    Thicker-looking hair starts in the shower. Wash and condition with Invati™ Exfoliating Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner, which gently exfoliates the scalp and thickens the appearance of hair. Follow with the Scalp Revitalizer treatment for maximum results.

    Invest in volumising stylers to give your hair greater oomph – try Aveda Phomollient™ Styling Foam, or spritz in Aveda Volumizing Tonic™ at the roots. Both are designed to add weightless volume to fine hair.

    Blow dry with a round brush – it’s the perfect tool to create volume and lift. Section hair, lift hair up vertically at the roots creating tension with the brush, then direct the dryer’s air-flow to the roots to lock in volume.

    Never skip your trim appointment. We get it – you don’t want to cut off any of your precious hair, but we promise clean, fresh edges will give the illusion of a thicker style over any number of straggly, split ends.

    Plump up the volume on your finished style with a sprinkling of Aveda Pure Abundance™ Hair Potion around your parting and crown. Work in this powder-turns-lotion styler to boost volume and texture – it’s a backstage favourite with session stylists.

    Whether you fear the frizz or dream of smooth, straight locks, find out how YOU can get your dream hair with Aveda and Marie Claire.
