If your hair has a habit of falling flat, it’s time to step up your style routine and pump up the volume. To give your mane extra spring and fuller body, take note of the tips below.
1. Use a designated dryer
Not all blow-dryers are created equal. A professional dryer with a diffuser attachment is ideal for wavy and curly hair because it helps create bouncy, defined strands. Also, make sure your dryer has multiple heat and speed settings. Turning off the ion generator will help create more volume.
2. Choose the right products
Select products that will help you achieve hair with the spring you seek. Our pick is the new Suave Professionals Luxe Style collection. Here’s what to do:
Step I: If you have wavy or curly hair, polish your look with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Curl Defining Gel Serum. It helps define your waves and curls as your hair dries — but the real beauty of this product is that it won’t make your strands stiff in the process.
Step II: Saturate your damp hair with the serum, twist it into sections, then use your blow-dryer (with the settings mentioned above) to style your bouncy, voluminous tresses.
Step III: You’re also going to want Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Souffle Mousse. It’s similar to the serum in that it helps create soft definition, but it’s different in that it’s not necessarily intended to give your hair defined body. The result is volume that’s a bit more undone. Work the mousse into towel-dried hair, and then blow-dry.
Step IV: Create a loose, high bun as you finish getting ready.
Step V: Let it out for a bouncy, sultry look.
3. Style a side part
This is an easy, do-anywhere trick for extra volume. If your hair is looking deflated, swap your part, rubbing your fingertips along your roots to create texture.
4. Recharge your roots
Speaking of roots, dry shampoo is a good way to pump up the volume at your scalp, where hair usually falls flat first. Carry around a small bottle in your purse to add definition on the go.
5. Sleep with a bun
Create volume overnight by going to sleep in a loose bun. Tie it high, on top of your head, and make sure to use a hair tie that won’t cause a crease. Let it down the next day and watch your strands spring to life.
6. Swap your pillowcase
A silk or satin pillowcase will do wonders for your hair. These luxurious fabrics won’t tangle your tresses as you sleep. The result is healthier and stronger hair that is softer and springier.
