Many people suffer with a lack of volume to their hair. And in many ways, your hair is one of the few places where you can say that bigger is better. Having full, luscious locks is the dream of many, right? But a lot of people can only achieve that look with hair extensions or hours and hours making their hair look a certain way. But let’s face it, who has time for that? Here are a few tips and tricks to help you create more volume in your hair. They are quick and easy; no one will be able to tell what you’ve done, though you’ll be the envy of many. Interested? Read on.
Move Your Part
We all have a favorite place where we part our hair. We’ll have been doing the same for a while. But your hair gets used to it being done one way. So if you want to create some volume, especially at the root, then change the way that you part your hair. You could change sides, change the style of part, or even just change the direction of the part (have it diagonally, for example). It will give your roots a much-needed boost.
Use Dry Shampoo to add Volume
When your hair is looking a little limp, but it isn’t quite time for a blow dry, then using dry shampoo can be a really good way of adding volume to your hair. Dry shampoo helps to absorb the oils left in your hair. It acts as a texturizer too as it can create volume when used correctly. So it might be worth checking out a dry shampoo guide before you get any if you’re not too sure about how to use it. It can be a quick fix on a morning, though. Who needs a blow dry?
Back Brush Your Hair
I’m not talking about eighties style back brushing here, as that can cause some real damage. But you can create volume with a soft paddle brush or a comb, rather than a harsh bristle brush. Divide your hair into sections and back brush the sections that will be hidden by the hair on top. It is a good look for parties or a night out. Instant volume.
Use a Volumizing Shampoo
If your hair is naturally pretty lank and limp, then it can be good to incorporate a volumizing shampoo into your routine. When used nearly daily, it can help to build strength in your hair, especially at the root. So it will make a big difference to your hair and the volume of it.
Use a Crimper
Yes, you read that right! A crimper is a good way to get some volume. They really were onto something in the eighties… Crimp your hair at the roots, and it will make a big difference to the volume. Do it under the layers of hair that will cover it, and it will act like back brushing your hair. It gives a really natural looking but voluminous look.
