We all want more volume in our hair, it's a time when bigger really is better. We know the struggle, sometimes your hair just lacks in the volume department.
Don't let thin strands hold you back! There are many options available to create volume in our hair so that we never have to deal with that pain again.
Here are our top tips and tricks to perfect the big hair routine.
1. Flip over your parting
While you might think this goes against everything you've been told - it can be a quick volume fix. You see, where your hair falls naturally, is also where it is flattest.
A quick flip of the parting adds instant volume, with a little help from some hairspray, you'll be set for the rest of the day.
This is also just a super easy way to switch up your look.
2. Blow dry and style upside down
When we're in a rush, we don't have any time for rollers or curling wands. Sometimes we have a 5-minute gap between our shower and getting out the door. We know, we have to sort our time management out!
Simply, flip your head upside down, and blow dry. It gives you a heap of volume and dries your hair. Win-win situation.
We also like to brush our hair this way, and set with some hair spray. It works miracles.
3. Rollers are your best friend
We feel like rollers are becoming a forgotten instrument, but dust them off right now.
We love to put in some rollers, just in our roots, while we're making breakfast and doing our makeup. It adds a really subtle (though you can change how dramatic you want it) volume to your hair.
As always, finish this off with a bit of hairspray, and you have a great look for the rest of the day.
4. Use voluminous products
Styling products are another option in your quest to achieve volume. You can buy volumizing shampoos, conditioners, and mousses. They do work, too!
You might actually be pleasantly surprised by the difference that a good product could do to your hair.
With the Shampoo and conditioner, make sure you allow them to build. In other words, don't expect overnight volume.
5. Keep your hair healthy
Above all, if your hair is healthy and strong, it will ultimately look thicker and less flat. Make sure that you're protecting, getting regular haircuts, and addressing any issues that will inevitably create a beautiful head of hair.
We hope these very simple, but very effective tips and tricks help you on your hair journey. Don't worry, we've all had the flat hair problem before, but it's easily solved.
