thick hair, but no volume?

Hello all!! I have thick, pin-straight, medium-length, regular brown hair. My issue is that I feel like my roots are always matted down. My hair is very healthy as it is and the current products I use are:

- Shampoo: OUAI thick hair

- Conditioner OUAI thick hair


Additional products I occasionally use are:

- Shampoo: OUAI detox shampoo

- Conditioner: MoroccanOil Extra Volume


ISO products that will give my roots more volume!

Re: thick hair, but no volume?

Hi @thorsokb 

This is going to depend a lot on the cut you have. If your hair has minimal layers in the crown, achieving volume will be more difficult simply due to the weight of your hair. Think of the “butterfly cut”, a cut like that is helps give more volume. 
Product wise, a root lifter COLOR WOW Raise the Root Thicken and Lift Spray 5 oz/ 150 mL blow dried in and paired with a few rollers should help.

@thorsokb have you tried a root boosting product?  Moroccanoil Root Boost 8.5 oz/ 250 mL is one to try

Re: thick hair, but no volume?


  • Start with damp hair and apply a volumizing mousse or root-lifting spray directly to the roots. Distribute evenly.

  • Use a blow dryer with a concentrator nozzle to lift sections of hair at the roots, directing airflow upward. For added lift, flip hair upside down while drying.

  • Finish by gently teasing the roots with a fine-tooth comb to create extra volume. Avoid over-teasing to prevent damage.
