11 Of The Best Volumising Hair Treatments

It’s never been easier to fake fuller, healthier-looking hair. From volumising serums to thickening treatments, these are the products guaranteed to counteract limp, lacklustre strands …

Amika Vandal Volume Powder Spray, £20

If you’re after quick volume with minimal faff, choose this powder spray. Loved by stylists, it’s cloud-like consistency gives hair that ‘cool-girl’ texture in seconds. Completely weightless, it never feels heavy, instead lending a lightweight oomph for easy fullness. Hair gets extra nourishment too, thanks to an antioxidant-rich formula which is designed to keep strands hydrated and smooth.

Aveda Thickening Tonic, £21

This cult tonic is beloved by industry insiders and continues to be an Aveda bestseller. Spray it onto damp hair, then roughly dry it upside down for best results. Organic amla fruit softens parched strands, while botanicals add shine and lock in moisture. You’ll notice hair has a fuller, denser appearance after just one use.

Kérastase Densifique Masque Densite, £29.05

Kérastase is always ahead of the game, with innovative formulas that deliver on the promise. This clever masque uses a molecule called Stemoxydine, which promises to plump up the fibres of the hair for a fuller and thicker appearance. Apply it whenever you’re in need of added bounce, but make sure it’s always on clean hair for smooth and light results.

Kevin Murphy Full Again Thickening Lotion, £23

This leave-in lotion's sulphate-free formula has earned it seriously good reviews. Harnessing the benefits of rayon particles to create a thicker surface, it can make even the finest hair look thicker. Seeing is believing but it really does work – the key is to use only a small amount. Use too much, and hair will become sticky, so limit it to a 5p-sized blob, applying from the ends to mid-lengths for best results.

L’Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo, £4.99

This remains one of the best shampoos when it comes to volumising and thickening. Its main plumping ingredient (Filloxane) swells the hair from the inside out, boosting the width of each strand so it feels and looks much fuller post-wash. We come back to this time and again, and at just £1.99, it’s a true high-street hero.

Nanogen Women 7-in-1 Thickening Hair Treatment, £9.95

Nanogen is one of the best brands on the market serving those suffering with hair loss. The 7-in-1 formula works as a shampoo, conditioner and volumiser in one, harnessing calming ingredients like green tea and salicylic acid, which gently exfoliate and unclog blocked pores. Elsewhere, keratin works to strengthen the hair and in turn, boost weight and fullness over time. It’s a treatment that needs to be used continuously for lasting results, but it’s effective nonetheless.

Ouai Volume Spray, £10

Ouai founder, celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin, has launched a new pre-blow-dry volume spray. A weightless mist, it works to build body and long-lasting lift, thanks to polymers that stretch and boost the follicle. The addition of panthenol seals in hydration, while hibiscus extract improves elasticity to prevent premature breakage. A great addition to any haircare regime.

Redken High Rise Volume Duo Volumiser, £15.50

A two-in-one gel-cream treatment, this uses Filloxane for extra body and hold. Warm it up in your hands before running it through damp hair from root to tip for extra height and volume. Blast it with a blow-dryer for an extra boost, too, and to disperse the product evenly.

The Inkey List Peptide Volumising Hair Treatment, £9.99

We’ve been putting this new volumising treatment through its paces, lately. Formulated with 2% keranutri (which increases both thickness and volume) it works fast to maximise body, while the water-like texture never weighs hair down. Apply a couple of drops onto wet or dry strands, and continue the rest of your regime as usual. You’ll start to notice more body and fullness after about a week and, because it’s a serum, it’s great for taming flyaways and static, too.

Virtue Volumising Primer, £34

A volumising treatment for fine hair, this primer is actually so much more, protecting against both heat and environmental damage throughout the day. It also uses Alpha Keratin 60ku protein which mends and prevents hair from further damage by healing broken strands. The best bit? It builds impressive density and texture with just a few spritzes. A quick-fix, spray it onto damp or dry hair, aiming it directly at the roots for best results.

Viviscal Healthy Hair Supplements, £65

Viviscal is one of the only supplement brands proven to promote hair growth and density. Scientifically backed, it uses zinc, AminoMar C and biotin, which plays an essential role in the growth of healthy strands. It takes nearly six weeks to see results, but stick with it. You’ll also need to commit to taking these long-term, because as soon as you finish, your hair may well revert to its normal state.
