Even though we aren’t all lucky enough to be born with naturally thick hair with lots of volume, we all can achieve more hair volume with a haircut designed for that purpose AND by using these styling tips to get the most from what we’ve got!!
It can be extremely difficult for any girl to achieve big, voluminous hair that doesn’t fall flat or frizz up. Most women would love sultry, voluminous hair, but many simply don’t know how to achieve that “Victoria Secret” runway look.
Here are 5 tips that we guarantee will get you your biggest hair volume possible!
Start with creating a solid base. To get the most volume out of your hair, temporarily ditch the moisturizing shampoo for one that contains wheat protein or niacin. Moisturizing shampoos can weigh down your hair a bit, so even though we love them, when you want to create more volume, put aside that shampoo. Also, aim for a conditioner that is specifically formulated to add volume to your hair. Conditioners that have a heavy texture or leave a waxy residue are a no-no for voluminous locks. I love Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Shampoo to cleanse the roots and add extreme hair volume.
Use volumizing products at your roots every time you style your hair. Height is added to your hair at the root, so it is extremely important to use products that will support the volume directly on your roots. Oily residue at the roots will flatten hair, so it is also crucial to eliminate excess oil. Try Rock Your Hair, Bombshell Big Hair Powder not only adds extreme volume in hair, but it also eliminates grease like a dry shampoo.
Flip your hair upside down and spray a volumizing, holding spray at the roots. We like Keranique’s Lifting Spray. It’s lightweight and effective. This will help hold roots in an upward position which gives your hair even more height. While your hair is upside down you can aggressively rub your roots with your fingertips and then quickly flip your hair back. This added friction will give you major volume.
Rock the right style! If you have long hair that is all one length you are seriously setting yourself back when it comes to getting the most volume. You can still have lengthy strands, but in order to have volume you need shorter layers so that your hair isn’t weighed down. To get volume in hair, you will need to have sections up top that are shorter than the lower sections. A few layers can make a huge difference.
Blow dry your hair with a round brush. This is probably the best tip, when it comes to adding volume in hair. Take small sections and pull them straight up, while blow-drying your hair from the roots to the ends. By manipulating your hair while it is still wet and restructuring the root, you will achieve more hair volume. For even more volume, spray each section after they dry and set them in pin curls.
Now that you know how to get hair with volume, get out there and rock your new sexy style!
