Thinning hair really annoys girls, and many girls will consider how to make their hair look more fluffy so that they look younger and more energetic. How can we make our hair more fluffy? What is the principle of fluffy hair products? Why is my hair fluffy?
There are four factors:
1.Hair volume. The more your hair is, fluffier your hair is.
2.Thickness of each hair. The larger the diameter of a single strand of hair is, fluffier your hair is.
3.Softness of hair.Harder hair can "stand up" on the scalp, adding bulk. Softer hair cannot "stand up".
4.Friction between hair.4.Hair can rub against each other, fixing each other in one position, thus increasing the volume. This is also why shaving upside down can make the hair more fluffy: shaving up makes the scales open, forming a rough surface, so increasing the friction between the hair makes the hair more fluffy.
What are the scientific principles of fluffy hair products?
First of all, we must understand that hair care products cannot increase hair volume unless you use a topical medicine such as Minoxidil.
Some products claim to thicken the layer of hair fiber (in fur), but this is just a sales gimmick. The only ingredient that can slightly increase hair diameter is high concentration of Provitamin B5. Of course, products such as chemical dyes can also be used to increase the amount of fiber in the hair, but the damage to the hair is great. This is why hair usually becomes fluffy after dyeing it.
Hair care products can make your hair stronger. The high-molecular polymer in mousse products can be temporarily attached to the hair to make it harder, so as to achieve a fluffy effect. Powders in dry-cleansing shampoos, such as starch and talc, can increase the friction between hairs and therefore make them more fluffy. Some styling products can also achieve this effect through the same principle.
Is it effective to use plumping shampoo to make hair fluffier?
Two functions of using plumping shampoo:
1.Remove styling products from hair.
2.The high-molecular polymer in the shampoo will remain attached to the hair even after washing, increasing the toughness of the hair. As long as you don't overuse the conditioner, this type of shampoo is effective.
How to make thin hair fluffy. There are several ways for you to consider:
1.Use conditioner first, then shampoo. The effect varies from person to person.
2.Use a silicone-free shampoo, and using conditioner is not recommended(this method will cause damage to hair).
3.Use some styling products, such as hair gel, hair wax, hair mud.
4.You can also go to the barber shop to make a perm on the roots of the hair and let the hair stand up. But as you know, perm hurts.
5.Use fluffy powder, fluffy powder can absorb excess oil on the hair and increase the friction between the hairs. It will not make the hair heavier and collapse.
Finally, balance eating, work and rest reasonably, reduce hair loss, and take good care of your hair.

More and more women like to wear wigs. It is embarrassing that wearing a wig looks unnatural. Many people will ask how to make wigs look natural and real. You've come to the right place. Follow these tips to wear your wig naturally.
1.Invest in A Good Quality Wig
The type of wig can make differences in how a wig look natural in your head. It is recommended to choose a high-quality wig to make it look natural.
Human hair wigs always look more natural than synthetic wigs.
The lace front wig creates the illusion of natural hairline, smoothing the border between hair and skin and making your wig hair look like it grows from the top of your head.
Monofilament tops do the same thing, but for the wig’s part. Each hair of the monofilament top wig is sewn into the wig separately, instead of being machine applied. This allows the hair of the wig to move freely and allows you to separate the wig wherever you need it.
2.Ensure Your Wig Fits Properly
There is nothing worse than a wig that doesn't fit your head. Finding the right wig for your head will make your wig more comfortable and make your wig look more natural.
To determine the size of your wig, please measure your head circumference. Start from the front of the hairline, wrap the measuring tape behind your ears to your neck, and then around to the other ear, then align the measuring tape with the other end at the front of the hairline.
3.Choose the Right Wig Color
Usually, your hair cannot have only one color. Most people have different shades of color and gradients throughout their hair. A wig with a single color looks really fake. To avoid this, it is recommended to choose a wig with a rooted color. The rooted color wig subtly blends various tones with the dark color depth at the roots, which make the wig look natural and real. However, if you can't find a rooted color wig you like, make sure to pick a color that has a blend of two or more colors throughout and gives off a highlighted or ombre look.
4.Make Sure Your Hair Is As Flat As Possible Underneath
An important way to tell if someone is wearing a wig is if there is a lump sitting on top of head. To help your wig look natural and real, you need to make sure your hair is flat underneath.
In order to flatten the hair underneath, the most important tool you need is a wig cap to secure the hair and protect the wig. You will also need hair gel, bobby pins or hairpins,, a small amount of hair spray and a tail comb to make it flat.
5.Treat Your Hairline
Working with a perfect hairline will make your wig look natural. You can align the wig with the hairline. Or you can put your wig an inch or two behind on your head, and blend the natural hairline with the wig hairline. You can use some powder to maker the hairline has the same color. If you're trying this trick, it's important to match your wig color with your natural hair color. All in all, the key to a perfect installation is to keep trim edges. If you have long baby hair, your wig should probably have them, too.
6.Replace the Wig Regularly
No matter how hard you want to be, no wig styling product or hat adjustment can save an outdated wig. Try to replace your synthetic wigs every 3 to 6 months and human hair wigs every 6 to 12 months.
Now that you know some of the best tricks to make your wigs look real and natural, try some or all of them.
For decades, women have tried to achieve different and stunning hairstyles. And for centuries, women have applied various products to create new hairstyles. Of course, this is also the year of the hairstyle.
No matter what your hairstyle is, from short bobs to different colored hair, there were quite a lot of new and surprising looks. So there is a summarize of the most popular hairstyle and the worst hairstyle this year, and also we’d like to see what’s coming along in the next year.
Popular hairstyles this year
In this year, many women have tried the short bob hairstyle. No matter what kind the short bob is, from a-line bobs to short cropped bobs, it can be seen that the bob hairstyle is becoming one of the most popular hairstyles these years.
Another kind of the most popular hairstyle this year is braided hair. What a common hairstyle in this year! You can see celebrities wearing braided hair attending events, while your friends wore braided hair wandering on the streets. It can be predicted in the coming year braided hair will keep its popular trend.
Though braided hair and short bob were everywhere. The popularity of the long-hair is also impressive. We can see the long-hair is turning to a much relaxed kind.
We also have some hairstyles which looks crazy this year. It is likely that these crazy hairstyles may not be back in the upcoming year, and let’s see what they are.
Worst hairstyles this year
There were many crazy colored hairstyles which looks really bad this year. Full of controversies and queries, I think we’ve already known how bad these crazy colored hair are.
Well we have to say those celebrities wearing blonde hair look so strange in this year. If you find you wore the same kind of unnatural blonde hair, we strongly recommend you to change your hairstyle. It is quite obvious that blonde hair was totally defeated in this year, and predictably this trend will further decline in the coming year.
Short bob was so popular this year that makes me believe that this kind of hairstyle will keep its popularity in the coming year. Perhaps the new bob of shoulder length can be the trend too. The relaxed hairstyle will keep going in the coming year. Though there is time when you have to wear formal hairstyle, and there are also places where you must not be relaxed. However, I don’t believe this will largely affect the trend of the relaxed hairstyle.
When we see alcohols, no matter it’s in skin-care lotions or hair- cleaning shampoos, we always tend to think that they are bad and choose to stay away and not using them. But are they always bad? The answer is “no”! There are two types alcohols, short-chain alcohols are the ones you would want to steer clear of, while the fatty alcohols are a better choice derived from natural sources like coconuts.
FATTY ALCOHOLS (GOOD)
- Stearyl Alcohol
- Myristyl Alcohol
- Lauryl Alcohol
- Behenyl Alcohol
- Cetearyl Alcohol
- Cetyl Alcohol
Fatty alcohols provide lubrication, hydrating and film forming properties which absorb and lock in moisture keeping the hair from drying out. For these reasons, fatty alcohols like Cetyl, Stearyl and Cetearyl alcohols derived from plants are used extensively in hair care products designed to keep hair hydrated and healthy.
SHORT CHAIN ALCOHOLS (BAD)
- Propyl Alcohol
- SD Alcohol 40
- Isopropyl Alcohol
- Isoproponal Alcohol
- Alcohol Denat
- Ethanol Alcohol
- Ethyl Alcohol
Short-chain alcohols evaporate quickly and so they are used in hair and skin care products as an additive to help decrease the time it takes for a product to dry once applied. But the flip side to their use is that these alcohols also wick moisture from hair and skin. With hair this causes the cuticle to roughen, leaving the hair dry, brittle and frizzy.
So now you know the difference between these two alcohols, and you are always suggested to choose fatty alcohols over short-chain alcohols.
