There’s nothing more annoying than spending a large chunk of your time styling your hair, only to have it fall flat almost immediately. Volume is one of the best ways to take your hair styling up a notch, but achieving it is not as easy as you’d like it to be.
Try these 7 ways to get the volume you crave:
1. Begin at the Roots
The trick to getting great and lasting volume is in the roots of your hair, believe or not. That means you need to treat them well on a daily basis so that they don’t make your hair lie flat. While you’re washing your hair, get it clean and spend some time rubbing your scalp to loosen up your roots.
2. Try Extensions
If you really don’t have time to spend trying to get volume, but you need to get to an event with excellent, high-standing hair, turn to hair extensions. Though they may not be your first or ideal choice, they can definitely be helpful in a pinch.
3. Use Hot Rollers
Giving your hair some curl will help with your volume goals. To get curls and volume that will last, use hot rollers, overnight if possible, and spray your hair with strong holding products while it’s in the hot rollers.
4. Keep it Lifted
If you’ve just spent a lot of time styling your hair for volume, but really don’t need that look until later in your day, throw your hair up into a high, but loose ponytail. That way the volume will be maintained, but the looseness of your scrunchie won’t leave an unattractive dent.
5. Know What Products to Use
Volume cannot occur without a little help from some friends, and by friends, we mean styling products, and more specifically, hairsprays designed to create a lot of volume. You should use them throughout styling, while you’re drying hair, and then again once it’s dry to get extra hold.
6. Try Dry Shampooing
When you don’t have time to shower and start your styling from the very beginning, a good option to perk your hair up a bit is to use dry shampoo. Even if your hair is looking flat and dull, a bit of dry shampoo will give you the flexibility to restyle and make it look like new.
7. Move Your Part
If you always part your hair on a specific side, simply changing sides will make a big difference in the volume of your hair. This is because your hair grow accustomed to growing and laying the direction that you usually part it. So when you switch it up, you will get instant volume.
Keep these simple tips in mind the next time you really need hair with volume.
