Condition the Ends of Your Hair Only
When applying conditioner, only work a quarter-size amount into the ends of your strands. This will help you avoid weighing hair down and greasy roots.
Let Your Hair Air Dry Before Brushing It
When you brush your hair when it’s wet, it can flatten out your strands. For the most volume, Miranda recommends letting your hair fully air dry before using a brush.
Blow Dry Your Roots for the Most Lift
When blow drying your hair, McGuinness says it’s important to dry at the root for the most lift. “If your hair isn’t prone to frizz, you can flip your head over and freely blow dry your roots while upside down,” she says. “To avoid frizz, use your hands or a brush to hold your hair steady while focusing the dryer on your roots.”
Use Velcro Rollers
To get the most out of your blowout, McGuinness recommends using a few big velcro rollers throughout the crown of your head. Apply them after blow-drying and leave them in for ten to 15 minutes. This will add lift to the roots for a more voluminous finish.
Use a Volumizing Spray
“Volumizing sprays are best when styling fine hair,” says Miranda. If you’re looking for a spray that works wonders with minimal effort, we love the Carol’s Daughter Cactus Rose Water Volume Spray
. Simply spray it on damp strands for lift and lasting hydration. You can either let it air dry or use it before a blowout (it protects hair against heat damage too).
