Fine or thin strands can be a lifelong challenge to fatten.

If  you've tried a wide range of commercial volumizing products with minimal results, you may successfully fatten fine hair with yogurt and cocoa hair masks.

Sometimes you may achieve great results with a Do-It-Yourself (DIY)  formula. 

Why Yogurt is Good for Your Hair

Yogurt is a popular ingredient in volumizing hair products.  Why?  The milk proteins in yogurt instantly nourish hair cuticles while adding natural plumpness.

The enzymes will naturally combat dandruff while helping to soothe an itchy scalp.

Yogurt is rich in protein which will help strengthen strands.  It will also help soften dry and brittle strands while imparting a beautiful shimmering shine.

Add Cocoa Powder For Hair Plumping

Some people swear by cocoa powder as a wonderful thickening dry shampoo which will also add temporary natural brunette accents.

If you add cocoa powder to your yogurt hair plumping mask, you'll instantly create a powerful fattening formula with built-in chocolate coloring.

Note:  If your hair is white, silver, platinum or blonde you may want to skip the cocoa powder since it may temporarily stain your hair with chocolate accents.

Cocoa is a powerful antioxidant which nourishes, invigorates, replenishes and plumps hair.  Cocoa powder adds a nice thick layer to hair without weighing it down.   In essence you'll have a quick and easy DIY hair fattening fix.

Style Hair On Top Of Your Head For Maximum Fatness

A great way to get the fattest hair tresses with great root lift is to let your hair dry on top of your head.  Roots dry upward so the lift will last.  This DIY hair fattening trick requires you allow plenty of time to let hair air dry.

After cleansing hair, completing a cool/cold water rinse and towel blotting, use a super wide-toothed comb to remove tangles.  PlatinumBlondeGlam-11_250h

Apply a root amplifier like Phytovolume Actif to your roots. Add a volumizing mousse to the rest of the hair.

Comb hair straight up securing hair on top of the head. Smoothly curl the ends, clipping them into place. Make a top ponytail and twist all your hair until it buckles back. This provides volume and texture.

Allow hair to air dry or if  you want to speed up the process, blow-dry hair when it's still damp occasionally re-wrapping hair to expose different sections to the air.
