How To Get Voluminous Hair In Seconds

by Stephanie Montes

The way we see it, big hair is great hair. That said, many of us find it hard to get any kid of height in our roots. It’s not you, it’s gravity. Luckily there are plenty of tips and tricks to prevent your style from falling flat. Ahead, the products you need to give your hair an instant lift, because bigger is always better.

Sky-High Volume

Try A Deep-Cleaning Scalp Treatment

Product buildup, dead skin cells and oils can accumulate on the scalp and weigh hair down at the roots. A deep-cleaning scalp treatment stimulates the hair follicle, removes all traces of buildup and gives your roots an instant lift.

Give Your Blowout A Boost

This volumizing spray gives you a lift at the roots, even when you're not all that great at giving yourself a blowout. Spritz it on damp hair from roots to tips to add density, pump up the volume and create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair.

Use A Diffuser

A diffuser is an attachment that you connect to your blowdryer, and contrary to popular belief, it's not just for girls with curly hair. Massage the diffuser at your damp roots to add tons of volume before drying the rest of your hair.

Opt For An Ionic Brush

When blowdrying your hair, use a round brush in an upward motion to create a lift. An ionic brush has a metal base, which warms up with the heat of your blowdryer and works as a huge curling iron. Translation: It gives you major volume that lasts all day long.

Use Velcro Rollers

Putting your hair up in rollers once you've blowdried your hair will allow your style to set with that extra lift at your roots. Blowdry and roll the top parts of your hair and let it sit for at least twenty minutes. Once you remove the rollers, you hair will have tons of volume and lift at the crown.

Try A Weird Hot Tool

This strange-looking hot tool is the answer to limp, lifeless hair. It creates a long-lasting texture at the roots (similar to a crimp) and makes hair look so much fuller.

Have A Backup

In case your hair falls flat throughout the day, keep a volume powder spray for mid-day touchups. Massage it into roots to get hair up and at it again.
