Find out how to add some bounce to your lifeless fine hair
It’s a huge achievement when you cut down on body fat. The same excitement fizzles out when you watch strands of hair getting detached from your scalp. Limp, flat and lack of volume soon become synonyms of your tresses. Wearing hair extensions, wigs or going for transplant can take a back seat. All you have to do is play a little with your curls.
Bob cut? No way! It is the usual response from women. No woman would want her long locks being chopped off. What’s worse? Stepping out of the salon with masculine look! As hair experts with international standards are mushrooming all over the country, you can keep your worries aside. Depending on your face cut and preference, Bob cut can be given in numerous variations. What’s more? This cut will be an addition to your crowning glory. While long length weighs down your hair, short gives volume. “When you start losing hair, forehead becomes more visible. You can get Bob cut with fringes,” says Dhruv Abichandani of Drama Salon. Messy Bob, as suggested by Aashish Christian, Creative Director of La Femme Salon will also serve the purpose, “the regular Bobs have straight edges. Messy on the other hand, has soft ones. Scrunch and wear it.” A-line Bob which is short at back and touches your chin area is another option.
As kids most of us must have spent lot of time on combing thinking it would make our curly hair straight. But as those strands reduce in number, we thank God for blessing us with wavy or curly hair. With straight you can go short, wavy haired women can do that or add layers to their hair. “Layering adds body. For a night out, you can use hot rollers for styling,” says Shankar, Celebrity hair stylist, Naturals Salon and Spa. Shimsha Shetty, Salon Director, b:blunt Khar Mumbai also suggests rollers, “blast drying your hair with a light weight leave in conditioner, and slipping in big rollers and letting them set while you get ready , allows the hair to give that healthy bounce .” The other friendly hair volumizing product is mousse. “Apply mousse on damp hair, lift it up at 90 degrees and blow dry,” says Christian. Hair spray can also be used once a while. But check the label, warns Sugandh Dariya, National Educator, Paul Mitchell, India. “You get to know by scent. If not, you should only pick up the spray which has mild mentioned on it,” says Dariya.
Hair colouring dries up healthy locks and leads to hair fall, are some of the stories we’ve heard from women. The others who’ve not had a chance of colouring hair, even if they think of doing it these words start echoing and end up dumping the thought. The answer to strong tresses lies in the products. For coloured or fine hair, use professional ranges instead of those available on counters as professional ones focus on treatment and not just maintenance. If you get the right products and colour, your hair can be transformed from fine to bouncy one! “After getting layered hair cut if you colour your hair, it will increase the visibility of texture,” says Christian. Shetty seconds that suggestion, “It gives an illusion of volume too especially on the crown area. Underneath light panels can also get the hair to look lifted on the top.”
