A hair volumizer - whether in the form of a hairspray, shampoo or some type of lotion - can really help give your locks a lift!
These particular volumizers are all popular because they make hair look thicker WITHOUT making it look frizzy. Many even add extra shine and are a great way to bring thinning hair to life, without using damaging techniques like back-combing and heat treatments.
Specially made for fine hair, Pantene's Root Lifter Spray amps up the hair's volume from the roots. It doesn't offer the 'hold' of a traditional hairspray, but it does create volume... best of all, it doesn't get sticky!
If you live in a humid area, you'll be pleased to hear that it provides protection against the humidity too, helping you keep your style for longer!
Oribe Dry Texturing Hair Spray
This beautifully scented, high end product does not come cheap - however, it DOES produce excellent results! Unlike many other sprays, this one is dry and absorbs the oil at the roots of your hair, lifting the hair and giving it texture and volume.
It works like a dry shampoo, meaning that your hair looks and feels as if you've just washed it for several days - a real plus if your hair is thinning and you want to keep shampooing, drying etc to a minimum.
Aussie Aussome Volume Hairspray
It seems almost too good to be true when a volume spray works AND costs under $10! Yet this spray does what it advertises, by making your hair look fuller and more lifted, but without weighing it down.
Another nice bonus is that it smells lovely - a real 'perfume' scent as opposed to the chemical odor of most hairsprays.
Bumble & Bumble Thickening Hairspray
Our top pick
One of my favorite hair volumizers, Bumble and Bumble's Thickening Hairspray works in several ways...
*It adds volume
*It's a styling spray for blow-drying
*It sets the hair in place
*It protects the hair from heat damage as you dry it (always a big consideration for those of us with thinning hair).
Another advantage I've discovered is that it really seems to stop frizz, but without making the hair feel weighed down. Great product!
Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder
This AWESOME lotion is designed to boost limp hair and give it texture, yet still leave it smooth and easy to manage.

If you want your conditioner to work in tandem with your other volumizing products, then Pureology offers you an awesome solution with its Pure Volume Conditioner.

Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse
If your budget is limited then this great little mousse is well worth a try!
It really does provide significant lift from the roots, with or without the recommended use of a hairdryer. It's also lightweight and keeps down the frizz.
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Serum
This is a hair volumizer that's applied as a nightly treatment, rather than a styling product. You apply it every night from root to tip to damp or dry hair, and the serum flattens the individual strands, making the hair look fuller over-all.
Different people tend to get different results with this one (which isn't surprising, given the fact that hair types can influence results) but some women swear by it as an easy route to volumized hair.
Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Mousse
This mousse works JUST as desired - just be careful not to overdo it though, as less is most definitely more! You'll be quite amazed at just how much volume this product can produce, with results almost as good as back-combing (but without the damage!).
And if you're in a warm climate, you'll be pleased to hear that it helps battle the deflating effect of humidity, too.
TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Root Boost Spray
This is a hair volumizer that leaves you feeling PAMPERED because it has such a gorgeous fragrance! With "floral, fruity note and a hint of musk", TIGI spray helps you keep the 'lift' even in humid conditions, but leaves no yucky residue in your hair.Click here to buy
