Try a Pop of Color

When it comes to giving your thinning hair a boost, a little color can go a long way. Not only can color and highlights help to plump up strands, they can also help create the illusion of depth. Check our list of color tips to help guide your conversation with your stylist.

Just say yes to color. Whether it’s an overall change or just the addition of highlights, color techniques can help make your hair look fuller, thicker, and more voluminous.

DO experiment with color and highlights. Color will expand the shaft and make it thicker. 

DO opt for highlights or lowlights around the face to give the hair some dimension and warm up your overall look.

DO add gold tones if you’re a brunette or a redhead; it will instantly warm the face.

DO stay away from ombré tones. The dark hair on top and light tips on the bottom will accentuate any thinning around the crown.

DO feel free to use Women’s ROGAINE® Foam if you have color treated hair, just DON'T apply within 24 hours of getting your hair colored.  

DON’T go too dark if you’re trying out hair color. Going too dark can emphasize the contrast between the scalp and the hair if your skin is lighter than your hair. Instead, a lighter shade could actually make hair appear thicker, so it’s best to go a few shades lighter.

DON’T go crazy with the bleach, however. A white blonde (if it isn’t your natural color) can easily be too harsh and cause hair to become dry and brittle.
