How to get healthy, voluminous hair

· May 29, 2018

If you want healthy, voluminous hair, nourish it from both the inside and the outside to strengthen it and take care of factors that may be weakening it.

It’s normal with all of the handling, products, and styling tools, for your hair to get weak and lifeless over time. What isn’t normal is doing absolutely nothing to take care of it, and that’s exactly what we’ll address in this post.

How can you get healthy, voluminous hair?

1. Fortify your hair

Healthy, voluminous hair.

First of all, it’s very important to not waste any more time when it comes to weak, lifeless hair. There’s still something you can do about it. But something that does not have a solution is if you let it die completely and don’t do anything about it.

The first thing that we recommend is that when you first notice that your hair is getting weak and brittle, you change the hair products you’re using.  At this point, it’s best to look for products that are ideal for rebuilding your hair follicles, since that means your hair will grow strong from the roots.

  • Some of the most recommended “rebuilding” products are those made with arginine, a compound that’s ideal for strengthening the strands of your hair.

2. Feed your hair

The weakening of your hair is not only caused by external factors. There are also internal factors such as genetics or hormones that, over time, can make your hair lose vitality.

One way to address these internal factors is by eating a good diet, one where your body will get the nutrients it needs to give your hair vitality and grow correctly.

These are nutrients that you should have in your diet if you want beautiful, voluminous hair.


  • Iron and copper. Be sure to include foods in your diet such as spinach, nuts, seafood, wheat pasta, oats, eggs, basil, avocado, strawberries, figs and sugar-free chocolate. They will keep your hair looking great.
  • Vitamin B. Foods such as tuna, natural yogurt, potatoes, kale, brewer’s yeast, and turkey breast will help keep your hair from falling out and turning gray.
  • Zinc. Found in pumpkin seeds, wheat germ, watermelon and dark chocolate.

Other nutrients that you should keep in mind when you want to nourish your hair are: vitamin E, dairy products rich in vitamin B5 and omega 3 fatty acids, which are found in especially high amounts in cold water fish.

Homemade remedies are never a bad idea if you’re well-informed. The advantage is that the ingredients in these remedies are easy to find and are generally fairly budget-friendly. Here are some of the best homemade treatments to turn your lifeless, weak hair into brilliant, voluminous hair.

Thanks to its high collagen content, gelatin is one of the best ingredients for strengthening your hair. At the same time, it gives hair volume and thickness.

  • Add all of the ingredients to the hot water, except the gelatin. Once they have dissolved, add the gelatin and wait until the mixture has the right consistency.
  • To apply it, wet your hair with warm water, apply the mixture, and then cover your hair with a shower cap.
  • After 30 minutes, rinse your hair with plenty of water.
  • You can apply this remedy twice a week to increase the volume of your hair.
