Transcript:How to Add Volume to Hair by StylingHey I’m Charlotte here for About.com. Want voluminous hair but not quite sure how to get it or keep it lasting throughout the day? No worries, today I’m going to show you some examples on how to work with your hair to achieve long lasting volume.
Use Shampoo with Ingredients that Add VolumeFirst, you want to start by using a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. When purchasing volumzing products you want to look for these ingredients:
- Wheat protein- this will bind to your hair shaft and really pump up your hair
- Peppermint- Peppermint has a stimulating effect on the scalp, which adds tons of volume!
- Citric acid -Which removes build-up leaving your hair light and more manageable
Add Volumizing Product and Blow Dry Hair Upside DownNext right out of the shower apply a volumizing mouse to the roots of your hair and comb through like so, don’t be afraid to use a hand size amount. Now you are ready to blow dry. Flip your head over and start blow-drying the roots; you want to dry the roots as much as possible here to really achieve the height you want.
Finish Blow Drying Hair, Lifting with a Round BrushOnce the roots are dry flip your head back up, now finish drying with a round brush. Start by pinning the top layers of the hair up and gradually dry layer by layer. Running your hair over the round brush, and in an upward direction to enhance volume. Now, feel free to add a shine spray for texture, and a touch of hairspray all over to hold the lift.
