Wash with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner
Use volumizing shampoo and conditioner when you wash your hair – they won't weigh down your hair, and they'll make hair much easier to style.
Use a root lifter before blow drying
While your hair's still wet, apply a root lifter. Massage it gently into the scalp.
Lift hair up while you blow dry
Use your fingers or a rounded brush to lift hair up and away from the scalp as you blow dry.
Use a curling iron or curlers to add more fullness
While your hair is still slightly damp, create waves and curls with a curling iron.
Back brush your hair
Use a flat-backed brush to brush the opposite way your hair grows. This creates volume from root to tip, and is healthier for your hair than teasing with a comb.
Mist your hair with a flexible hold hairspray
Lightly mist with a flexible hold hairspray to secure your strands in place. Avoid using gels, mousse, or heavy hairsprays, which will only weigh down your locks.
