Blow drying technique: To add volume to your hair, start by applying a volumizing mousse or spray to damp hair. Then, flip your head upside down and blow dry your hair using a round brush. Lift the roots as you dry and direct the airflow towards the roots to create lift and volume.
Teasing/backcombing: Teasing or backcombing is a classic technique to add instant volume to your hair. Take small sections of hair near the crown, hold them straight up, and comb downwards towards the roots with a fine-tooth comb. Repeat this process for multiple sections, focusing on the roots.
Using volumizing products: Incorporate volumizing products into your hair care routine, such as volumizing shampoos, conditioners, mousses, or sprays. These products are designed to add thickness, lift, and bounce to your hair. Apply them to the roots or throughout the hair, depending on the product instructions, and style as desired.
Velcro rollers: Velcro rollers are an effective tool to add volume to your hair. Start by applying a volumizing mousse or spray to damp hair. Then, divide your hair into sections and roll each section onto a Velcro roller, starting from the ends and rolling towards the roots. Leave the rollers in for a specified time, typically around 20-30 minutes, or until your hair is dry.
Hairstyling techniques: Certain hairstyles can create the illusion of more volume. For example, opting for loose waves or curls can add body and fullness to your hair. You can achieve this by using a curling iron or hot rollers. Additionally, trying out different updos, such as a messy bun or a high ponytail, can give the appearance of voluminous hair.
