For fine hair, it’s actually very simple: Less is more. Stick to volumising mists at the roots and a little hairspray for hold. Don’t have the time, patience or know-how to try a salon-style blow-dry at home? Prior to styling, spray in a volumising mist and using your hands, blow-dry your hair upside down for maximum volume, or use a diffuser to bring out a natural wave pattern.
The thing is too much brushwork can make fine hair limp. Dry your hair at least 90% with your hands before going at it with your round brush if needed. Lift your roots prior to styling with a brush. Using a comb or vent brush, lift the roots of your hair whilst drying to give a good voluminous foundation. Use thickening products just in the root area so it doesn’t weigh down the rest of the hair.
«Once you have achieved the volume you want, it’s important to seal it in. Finish every blow-dry with a cold blast of air. Use product to maintain the volume. If you’re tonging the hair, it is essential to let each section cool before running your hands or a brush through it so that the style can set; otherwise you’ll undo all your good work, and your hair will look flat.
Silicones in products tend to weigh the hair down; try a great silicon-free volumising range like Pureology Clean Volume. It will swell the cuticle and make hair look thicker and voluminous.
