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.

1. Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Lemon Sage Thickening Shampoo + Conditioner

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.

2. Paul Mitchel -Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray

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.

4. Hot Tools Hair Dryer + Round Brush

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.

5. 2" Barrel Hot Tools Curling Iron

At this point I have achieved a great blow out but if I want a little curl I will use a large barrel iron.

6. Clips

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. 

7. Loreal Hair Spray

Nothing holds like this hair spray does. I will often give a quick spray over the entire head to keep it intact.
