Body in your hair means your style looks maximized. Without it, even a good haircut or style can look uninspired.

Undoubtedly you’ve heard the term “body” in relation to hair. But what exactly is “body in hair,” and how can you achieve it? Let’s break it down, shall we?

What is Body in the Hair

In scientific terms, “body in hair” refers to the fullness and thickness of individual strands, resulting in a voluminous and bouncy appearance. Achieving this coveted look involves understanding the structural properties of hair and employing techniques and products that enhance volume.

How can you naturally enhance body in your hair?

Each hair strand consists of three layers: the cuticle, cortex and medulla. The cortex, located in the middle layer, determines the strength, elasticity, and thickness of the hair shaft. By maintaining the health and integrity of the cortex through proper hydration and nourishment, you can enhance the body and volume of your hair.

One natural method for promoting body in hair is through proper hair care practices. Regular shampooing and conditioning help keep the scalp and hair follicles clean and healthy, while gentle massage stimulates blood flow to the scalp, promoting hair growth and thickness.

Don’t forget to incorporate nutrient-rich foods into your diet, such as fruits, vegetables, and proteins, can provide essential vitamins and minerals that support hair health from the inside out.

Are you looking for a little extra oomph?

The world of hair care is brimming with products designed to enhance volume and body. Look for volumizing shampoos and volumizing conditioners (our collection of volumizing shampoos and volumizing conditioners) formulated with ingredients like hydrolyzed proteins, panthenol and polymers, which help coat the hair shaft and create a thicker appearance.

For added lift and hold, consider using styling products such as mousses, foams and root-lifting sprays, which work to amplify volume and provide long-lasting hold without weighing hair down.
