Beautiful, healthy and, above all, gorgeous hair with lots of volume... tell the truth: we all want that, don't we? Good news: you don't have to be a professional hairstylist to give your hair volume. In this blog, we share a few simple and effective tips to give your hair a nice amount of volume.
Start with the right shampoo and conditioner
The foundation of beautiful and voluminous hair starts with the right hair care. Opt for a shampoo and conditioner specifically designed to add volume to your hair, such as the Salon B Haircare Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. These products are specially made with lightweight ingredients that won't weigh your hair down. They lift your hair and give it a fuller look. Also, make sure not to wash your hair too often as this can remove natural oils that help maintain volume.
Take care with conditioner
Conditioner is an essential part of your hair care routine, to leave hair wonderfully cared for and soft. But beware: conditioner can weigh your hair down. If you use a normal conditioner on the roots of your hair, your hair may become straight and flat. If you want to create volume, use this conditioner only in the ends. But if you use a conditioner specifically for creating volume, it should not be a problem to use it at the roots as well. After all, that is where you want to optimally condition your hair to keep it healthy.
Blow-dry your hair the right way
The second step to a full 'hairdo' is the right way of blow-drying. Start by applying a BlowDry Cream or spray to towel-dried hair. Next, use a round brush and blow-dry your hair upside down. This lifts the hair roots and gives your hair more volume. Make sure you use the hairdryer at a low to medium temperature to avoid damage. And very importantly, seal with a stream of cold air at each strand of hair. This will close the hair cuticles which will make the volume last longer ánd the hair will get a nice shine.
Experiment with different styling techniques
There are different styling techniques you can use to add volume to your hair. The simplest method is to use curling irons to create soft waves or curls. Especially if you use this at the roots of your hair by curling your hair right from the roots, you will have a lot of volume in no time. So this technique instantly gives your hair more body. Our ultimate product tip for big hair? The Salon B Haircare Texturising Volume Spray! This spray gives your hair extra volume without feeling stiff. And you normally use it in dry hair, but try it in towel-dried hair too. It's not obvious, but can add a lot of extra body to your hair.
The magic of a good haircut
Did you know that the way your hair is cut can have a big impact on how much volume you can achieve? Discuss your volume desire with your hairstylist and let your hairstylist choose the right technique. Note; there is a lot of difference in the way you cut to get volume. Find a hairstylist who feels that way. Layers create texture and movement, making your hair look fuller. Having your hair cut into an angled bob or lob can also add volume, as the ends of your hair have more volume. A good hairstylist can properly perform the right cutting technique to create volume in combination with your hair type.
With the right cut and these handy styling tips, it's easier to give your hair a nice volume boost. Remember, it's not about how much hair you have, but how it's cut, how you style and care for it. Also, experiment with different products and techniques until you find the perfect formula for your hair type.
