Creating bouncy hair with body and texture takes both technique and product – both in the shower and as you dry and style your hair. Targeted products and the right tools will ensure your tresses stay on top all day – read on to find more tips on how to add volume to your style, plus the products you need by your side to create hold and bounce.

5 Tips To Add Volume To Your Hair

Use Dedicated Volumising Haircare Products

Start your volume journey in the shower by using products specifically formulated to add body and lift to your hair. Look for shampoos and conditioners labelled ‘volumising’ or ‘thickening’ to give your hair a boost from the roots.

Blow Dry Your Hair Upside Down

Flip your hair upside down while blow drying to encourage lift at the roots. Use a round brush to further amplify volume as you dry your hair, focusing on lifting the roots away from the scalp for added bounce.

Incorporate Root-Lifting Styling Products

Apply a root-lifting spray or mousse to dampen hair before blow drying to add extra volume and lift at the roots. These products help to create a strong foundation for voluminous styles and keep your hair lifted throughout the day.

Tease For Texture

For instant volume, gently backcomb sections of your hair near the roots using a fine-tooth comb or teasing brush. Be careful not to overdo it, as excessive teasing can damage the hair. Instead, focus on teasing small sections and smoothing the top layer for a polished finish.

Choose The Right Hairstyles

Opt for hairstyles that maximise volume, such as loose waves, textured ponytails, or half-up styles with teased roots. Experiment with different techniques, like pinning back sections of hair or adding strategic layers at your next haircut, to create the illusion of fuller, thicker hair.
