How can we add some volume to your straight hair?
Solid products are your first step when it comes to volumizing your hair. It will open up a whole new horizon of possibilities for your hair, and it will leave you stupefied at how easy the whole process really is. Instead of volumizing shampoo, you can also use volumizing hairsprays or mousse.
The most important thing here, besides choosing a good quality product is to pick one that’s as lightweight as possible. Some of the volumizing products might claim they’ll add a ton of hair volume, but they’re still too heavy once put on, adding additional weight to your hair, thus making it even flatter by pulling it downwards.
If you have some additional time to burn, you can braid your hair just before you start blow drying it. This is a procedure that will add a bunch of volume, and create nice looking waves along the way. If you’re into looser types of waves, you’ll make bigger braids. If you want tighter curls, however go ahead and make smaller braids.
Use your towel to dry your hair as much as possible before you reach for your blow drier. You will reduce the amount of heat you’ll dish out towards your hair, and that’ll make her much more bouncy than usual.
You might also want to tease your hair a bit. This is a great way to add a lot of volume to it. You’ll just need a teasing comb and you’re ready to start. Once you have it, just use it to brush your hair’s underside downwards. Once this is completely done, simply comb all of the sections into their place carefully.
Those would be my quick suggestions on how to add some volume to straight hair. Have fun
