If I had a nickel for every time someone used that quote in reference to me, I would be a very wealthy woman! Besides how I do my eyeshadow, the question I get more than anything is how I get so much volume in my hair.
The mass quantities of curly hair I have piled on top of my head helps, but when using heat styling products, anyone can achieve a significant amount of volume, even with the thinnest hair! My hair breaks easily, so I avoid teasing it at all costs, but I have quite a few tips and tricks to achieving a voluminous mane!
My first secret to volume is my Tresemmé Thermal Creations Volumizing Mousse. This product is designed for heat styling, and will not damage your hair at all! Be careful not to get to eager when applying because it can leave a strange texture to your hair, but when used appropriately it helps create amazing volume. I follow the instructions as written on the back, and it works like a charm!
My next little secret is the way that I blow-dry my hair:
First, for the majority of the time, I dry my hair with my head upside down brushing it towards the ground as I go, make sure you flip your head up every couple minutes so all the blood doesn’t rush to your head :)!
Second, as I blow my hair dry, I brush against my part to increase volume around the crown of my head. These tricks will all provide immediate volume
Once my hair is completely blown dry, I use large velcro rollers around my crown. I take three sections, one on each side of my part and one section on the back of my head and put in the rollers. I then use a diffuser to apply heat to the sections with the rollers, and leave them in until they curl. I usually use this time to put on my make up, and get a break from being under all the heat.
The last step to voluminous hair depends on what styling tool you are using. When I use a flat iron, I avoid going near my roots at the top of my head to keep that volume there. If I’m using a curling iron I start by my roots and allow it to get a bit of heat, and then go on curling how I normally do!
Hope these tips and tricks helped, go out and rock your massive mane!
Until next time,
