As we all know, your hair starts at your roots and so does your volume. If you have a lot of hair or very long hair this can weigh it down because it is heavier making your roots look flat. There are three ways to combat this issue.Method 1: Get a haircut.
Now I'm not suggesting you hack off all of your hair like a crazy person, but getting some layers can help give your hair more volume and better shape.Method 2: Hair clips.
I love watching YouTube videos where people go to the hairdressers that are specifically for curly hair and get a DevaCut or a colour or anything at the hairdresser's, I find it so informative. One thing that the hairdressers always do is after washing the hair and before blowdrying it they will get some metal hair clips and clip all of the hair right at the root so the roots can't dry flat to the scalp. This helps to give your hair more volume and can make your hair look thick and bouncy.Method 3: Shake it out
After washing my hair or refreshing it with a cleansing foam
, I will shake my hair upside down and give it a good shake from the roots. Similar to the clips, this stops my hair from laying flat against my scalp at the roots and is a great way to add volume. I will probably shake it out two or 3 times for 30 seconds flipping my head back up in between so that all the blood doesn’t rush to my head. After this, whatever parting I have had my hair in while it is wet, after it has dried, I will create a parting on the other side to give it some added volume in the front.
