Even having curly, frizzy hair, I sometimes need a little bit of a lift at the roots, especially if I’m straightening my hair. So here are a few of the products I turn to to make a difference in the volume department.I’m not a massive fan of volume sing products that you put into wet hair and blow dry. I often find its hard to gage the right amount, I end up overloading my hair into a sticky mess. But one product I’ve got along with is the Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip. I would recommend it if you need lift from the word go. Just massage a small amount, about a 50p size, into the roots of wet hair and blow dry as usual. Pull the hair high when blow drying to get maximum effect and you’ll have lift for days that lasts and works perfectly if your doing updos. It doesn’t weigh my hair down, no mess or clumkiness, a really excellent product.
If you’re someone like me, who prefers the add a product to dry hair to give volume then the Charles Worthington Salon at Home Volume & Bounce Root Lift Backcomb Powder
will work brilliantly. This little pot of powder will give you endless big hair. Just shake a small amount into the roots and rub into the hair to really amp up the drama. I also love that you can add this to any area of the head, even the lengths of the hair to get a super big do. Because of the nature of this product, it’s super sticky, if you feel like your hairs gone a little flat throughout the day, just a quick rub and shake where the product is means you can refresh the volume again and again. The stickiness sometimes has its downsides, if you over use it you’ll need to use something like the shampoo I spoke about in this post to rid you of the stickiness.
If the idea of a straight up powder isn’t really your thing then the COLAB Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo
might be for you.if you’ve been a regular reader of Made From Beauty you’ll know about my love for the COLAB line, see this post, and this post, oh look…even this post! And after being a huge fan of the original dry shampoo formula for a while, I recently tried out the Extreme Volume version, and I gotta tell ya…I’m in love! I have mine in the London fragrance, which I knew I was already in to, but I wasn’t expecting to love the formula so much. Just like the Charles Worthington Salon at Home Volume & Bounce Root Lift Backcomb Powder, this product gives that tacky root lift but in a spray version with oil control. When I’ve just straightened my hair I love to spritz in a little of this to give me a boost where I need it and control any oils so my style lasts forever. Unlike the original version, this does have a little of a white cast, so rubbing in or brushing it through a little is essential.
What do you use to give your hair volume? I’d love to try out one of those root boost spray thingys, but I’ve never known which one to pick up, can you recommend any?
