When it comes to great hair, bigger is better. Every woman dreams of full, bouncy locks that seem to defy gravity. But let’s face it: The vast majority of us deal with flat, lifeless tresses on a daily basis — even after spending tons of time trying to style it. Is it possible to infuse your hair with more volume without spending a fortune at the salon?
Absolutely. Whether you have fine, silky wisps, wild and wavy curls, or something in between, there are a few simple tricks every woman can use to give their mane a mega boost. Here are five ways to turn up the volume of your hair.
Nourish from within.
No amount of styling or products will make hair look amazing if it’s unhealthy to begin with. Beautiful hair starts with nourishment from within. Consider trying a supplement that supports healthy hair, like New Nordic Hair Volume. It contains apple extract to stimulate the follicles and promote volume, along with millet extract and silicon to plump up brittle, thinning hair. The overall formula works to promote lively, luscious locks from the inside out.
Switch up your part.
Most of us are creatures of habit when we part our hair, using a comb or our fingers to gently separate the hair in the middle or off to the side. But here’s a secret: Parting hair in the same place for years on end makes it flat. Try something new, like a deep side part, to add body to the top of your hair.
Use less product.
Overdoing it with styling products puts you on the fast track to limp hair. Lightly scrunching your damp hair with a little bit of anti-frizz mousse might be all you need to get the volume you’re looking for. But if you could still use more lift by the time your hair is 80 percent dry, spritz your roots with a volume-boosting spray and finish your blow-out. The key is to use just the right amount of product to get some texture without weighing it down, so experiment until you find the right formula for your hair.
Blow-dry the right way.
Your blow-drying technique plays an essential role in the shape and volume of your hair. Flipping your head upside down while you dry it will keep your roots vertical and lifted. When you turn your head upright, use a round brush to pick up the roots and add more volume to your finished look.
Wash with care.
Taking good care of your scalp is essential for the health and body of your hair. Shampoo at least twice a week, and use conditioner as frequently as your hair calls for it. Once a week, treat yourself to a sugar scalp scrub. Just add one teaspoon of sugar to a dollop of shampoo and gently massage it into your scalp for a few minutes. Then rinse well and condition like you normally would. The treatment eliminates buildup and promotes tons of volume in your hair.
