Nobody wants flat, dull or lifeless hair but so many of us struggle to get the volume that we seek. Here at Hair World Mag we’ve got some helpful tips that will give you voluminous hair quick and easy.
Get A New Hair Cut
The number one reason that people have flat hair is because they have the wrong haircut. You could spray your hair with products, tease the roots, but in a few hours, it will still be dull without the right haircut. The right layers for your hair type and texture are essential to creating lots of volume.
Short layers around the crown of your hair will make the rest of your hair look flat and stringy. Ask your hair stylist for long layers that create movement throughout your tresses.
Remember, The longer that your hair gets, the more that it gets weighted down. If you have noticed that your hair has suddenly lost volume, you might want get a few inches off to create more volume.
Apply Hair Product Correctly
Once you have the perfect haircut, you can use products to achieve more volume. The key is to add mousse and other products when your hair is about 75% dry to prevent that wet-hair look. Using a blow-dryer to dry the last 25% of your hair after hair product can maximize fullness.
When you apply conditioner, make sure that you only apply it to the mid-to-ends of your hair. Leaving in conditioner at your roots can make it look lifeless and remove your hairs natural volume.
Tip: You might want to skip the conditioner all together and just use a light leave-in spray.
Use a Blow Dryer
The correct blowout is a simple and effective way to get lots of volume. Figure out which way your hair lays flat, then when you are blow-drying your hair, brush it and dry in the opposite direction. This will create a lift, as your hair still try’s to go the other way.
For example: Blow-dry your hair so that it’s going to the right, once it is dry, style it to the left. Instant lift with minimal effort!
The best way to create volume is to simply call up your hair stylist. A new haircut that is tailored to your hair type will allow you to achieve volume without having to worry about daily styling or spending money on products.
