o you ever wake up in the morning feeling like your hair is lifeless and lacking volume? After countless efforts to spruce up your hair, are your attempts falling flat? While your first instinct might be to hide your hair under a low brim baseball hat, there’s another fix. I’ve got the perfect solutions to bring your hair back to life and boost your confidence! Here are a few techniques and hair products, for a range of different hair textures, that will help you achieve that voluminous style that you’ve been looking for!

If you have curly hair like me, you probably know that sometimes your curls just won’t behave like you want them to. On some days I find myself having difficulty defining my curls and enhancing their volume, and I eventually give up trying. However, after experimenting with a range of different products, I finally found two amazing leave-in conditioners.  Carols Daughter Hair Milk Original Leave-In Moisturizer and Kinky Curly Spiral Spritz are both fantastic leave in conditioners that will enhance the body of your hair by defining your curl pattern.  These products will also leave your curls looking silky, shiny and smooth!

Curly Hair

For tighter curls, I would recommend using SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie.  This leave in conditioner will lock your curls in place and boost your hair’s volume without leaving any residue!  So for girls with tight curls, go ahead and give this one a try for that bold and defined look!

For both loose and tight curls, use the following technique to enhance your volume: add a squirt of argan oil to your fingers (preferably SheaMoisture 100% Argan Oil), and gently begin to separate strands of your curls.  This technique is effective because adding argan oil will seal in moisture to avoid frizziness, while separating your curls will add volume by making it appear as though you have more strands of curls!

Wavy Hair

If you have wavy hair, channel your inner diva by using Frizz-Free Volumizing Foam by DevaCurl!  This lightweight foam is great for plumping volume, improving curl retention and embellishing shine! To style your waves for even more body, try using The DevaCurl DevaFuser.  This hair tool is a diffuser that will lift your curls while infusing them with softness! For best results, set the diffuser on the cold air setting and begin to diffuse your curls while your hair is still damp after washing!

Straight Hair

Finally, for straight hair, one of the most important factors in maintaining a voluminous look is using an effective product that won’t weigh your hair down.  The Biolage Volumebloom Full-Lift Volumizer Spray will completely make a difference in the way you style your hair, and you will achieve fabulous results! This product contains properties that will increase inter-fiber space between your hair strands to maximize the fullness of your hair.   One of the greatest benefits about this product is that it doesn’t require using a blow drier, so it’s heatless and non-damaging!

In terms of techniques for developing body in straight hair, try the following trick: after washing your hair, gently twist your hair into a high bun (while it’s still damp) using a soft scrunchie and leave this style in overnight. The next morning, remove the scrunchie and shake your hair out to intensify your voluminous look!
