No one wants thin, limp locks, but if you were born with your mother’s thread-thin hair or you’re seeing thinning due to age as a result of decreased hormone production, fate may have other plans for your tresses. But fret not: You’re not resigned to a life of skinny strands! The best hair thickening sprays for women over 50 will transform sparse, thinning hair into a full, voluminous mane.

That’s good news for the 30 million women that the Cleveland Clinic reports suffer from hair loss each year. With the right products on hand, your days of embarrassment over thinning hair and bald patches will be numbered numbered.

How to Use Thickening Spray

While each thickening spray will have its own unique instructions — some work best when applied at mid-shaft, while others are formulated for your roots, for instance — many can be sprayed on slightly damp hair. From there, all that’s left to do is air or blow-dry your hair like normal for a va-va-voom worthy lift.

What is the best hair thickening spray?

Finding a hair thickening spray that works with your tresses can give you the confidence to walk into a room and not immediately wonder, “Are people staring at my hair?”, so it’s important to track down the right one.

As with most hair products, your perfect match will largely depend on your mane. If you have curly hair, for instance, you’ll want to be sure you’re using a lightweight thickening spray that won’t weigh your ringlets down ($30, Sephora). Others may prefer a heavier hold, so a product like Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Body Builder ($29, Sephora), may make for a better fit, since you can control the spray rate with the adjustable nozzle.

No matter which kind you choose, however, you’re sure to enjoy a generous, bulked-up appearance. Keep scrolling for Woman’s World’s favorite hair-thickening sprays for women over 50 and give yourself the hair you’ve always wished you were born with.always wished you were born with.
