How I Get Voluminous Hair
I have a ton of hair. However, it is very fine. I have spent an awful amount of time figuring out what works and what doesn't in terms of building volume. The secret is in the products and technique.
First, I was my hair with a clarifying shampoo and light weight conditioner. I like these from Paul Mitchell. I find that they remove built up product and add shine without weighting hair down.
While hair is damp, I spray hair evenly with this texturing spray.
3. Hair Clips
I will section my hair off in at least four sections so that I can make sure I am covering all areas. These stay exactly where I put them. They don't slide.
I will then focus on each section at a time, drying and styling with the round brush. I will then go back to the crown of the head and focus specifically on the root.
At this point I have achieved a great blow out but if I want a little curl I will use a large barrel iron.
If you have trouble with your hair keeping a curl like I sometimes do, I would suggest setting the curl. The way I do that is by immediately curling the hair around my finger after having curled it with the iron and pining it up out of the way. I will leave it clipped until the hair has cooled.
Nothing holds like this hair spray does. I will often give a quick spray over the entire head to keep it intact.
