I have fine, flat hair and as much as I love how I can style my hair however i want, I am always striving for volumised locks that look bouncy and healthy!
Over the years I have tried mousses, sprays, shampoos, backcombing, everything! I have now found products and techniques that work! yay!
Products I use-
Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo-
This use to be called Real Volume but have been re branded and I 'think' changed slightly as it works better than it used to! I shampoo my hair twice. On the second shampoo I really lather at the roots and leave it in for a couple of minutes. Sometimes I will use the matching conditioner, 3 minute miracle or no conditioner at all.
Tresemme root boosting spray-
This is the key to the volume lasting. This holds without stiffness or you even knowing you have product on your hair. It smells nice too!
I normally air dry my hair whenever I can but for an extra boost I rough dry my hair upside down. I tease the roots with my fingers. The follicles dry upwards and are more likely to stay that way!
Before straightening and styling, I let my hair cool. I clip the top half of my hair up lifting the roots.
When straightening, I only apply heat from about half way downwards on the length as I don't want to flatten the roots!
I have some pictures which just look like 'normal' hair to most people but believe me there is volume there compared to normal! (excuse the sweats and no make up... its a lazy day!)
How do you add volume to your locks?
