Ladies, let’s talk hair - that one beauty woe that unites us all. We’ve all been there, staring in the mirror, wondering how to inject some life and volume into our limp locks.
The quest for that glorious, bouncy hair might seem daunting, especially if you’re venturing into it without a game plan. But with the right products and approach, voluminous hair is achievable for all.
With these 11 tips to get gorgeous volume in your hair, you’ll be looking in the mirror rather than scrolling for inspiration.
11 Tips on How to Add Volume to Your Hair
Consistency is key, which is why having a winning hair routine is important. Combining consistency with your products and the right technique will have your hair feeling healthy, lustrous, and voluminous. Let’s dive into 11 game-changing tips.
1. The Magic of Texturizing Wave Spray
First things first, let’s talk about the MVP - Gisou’s Propolis Infused Texturizing Wave Spray. This little gem doesn’t just add volume; it’s like a beach vacation for your hair! This classic and easy way to add volume to hair creates a natural, effortless, wavy beach look. But how do we use it?
Apply it to damp or dry hair before using hot tools to achieve instant lift and volume. Simply section the hair evenly and spray at an arm’s length away. This will allow the product to mist onto your hair evenly, adding volume everywhere.
You can allow your hair to dry naturally or use a blow dryer. This texturizing spray is rich in vitamins and minerals that help strengthen the hair and prevent damage hot tools may cause.
2. Choosing the Right Hair Care for Volume
Not all hair is created equal, and the same goes for the products we use. Fine hair or thin hair has different needs than thick or curly hair. Choosing the right products is crucial because fine hair will get weighed down easily by products that are too heavy. The right product will provide moisture from the inside out, without weighing the hair down.
Healthy hair will always have more volume than dry or damaged hair, and different products can serve different needs. Here are some options to consider:
- Hair Oil: Opt for a lightweight solution like Gisou’s Honey-Infused Hair Oil. It provides instant moisture, fights frizz, and seals split ends.
- Hair Repair Serum: For something with a little more oomph, hair serum is a great option. If your hair is suffering from damage, try a serum like Gisou’s Honey-Infused Hair Repair Serum, which is rich in antioxidants and plant-derived Keratin for repair and renewal.
- Deep Conditioning Masks: Our Honey-Infused Hair Mask is the ultimate go-to for intense moisture and hydration. It’s perfect for a quick 5-minute fix in the shower or an intensely nourishing overnight treatment.
3. The Importance of Moisture for Boosting Thickness
Moisture isn’t just about softness; it’s a key player in preventing breakage and promoting thickness. Strony, hydrated hair is plumper and more voluminous. It’s also less prone to split ends and breakage.
Incorporate our Honey-Infused Leave-In Conditioner into your routine anytime your hair needs an instant dose of hydration. It can be used right out of the shower on damp hair, or on dry hair in between wash days when your hair needs a refresh.
4. Revitalizing Your Scalp for Added Volume
Healthy, voluminous hair starts at the scalp. Two issues can occur when our scalp isn’t healthy.
- The dryness from our scalp can cause hair fall because the hair follicle doesn’t have much to grab onto. Flaky skin sheds, and so our hair goes with it.
- Build-up can also block the hair follicle from growing as quickly as it should. Removing debris and dirt creates an environment for good hair growth and circulation.
Consider using a shampoo that is both free of chemicals and full of nutrients. Our Honey-Infused Hair Wash cleanses effectively but doesn’t dry out your hair and scalp. Pairing this with our Honey-Infused Scalp Treatment promotes a healthy scalp microbiome and relieves dryness and irritation.
5. Boost Volume Between Washes with Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a classic, and for good reason. It absorbs excess oil, providing a quick lift between washes. Spray it directly on the roots, flip your hair, and shake for an instant refresh.
6. Choose the Right Cut for Lift
We all have different types of hair, which is why choosing the right haircut can do wonders. Often, the go-to advice is to add layers to the hair because it can make it appear fuller, but this may not work for those with fine or thin hair because layers can thin out the hair.
Sometimes, having overly long hair can also make it appear thin if it gets weighed down. Your stylist can recommend the right angles and style to frame your face and enhance volume.
7. Techniques for Blowout Volume
Blowouts will always be a great solution for adding volume. Blow-drying your hair upside down is a great way to add volume to the roots. Once your roots are dry, flip your head up and use a round brush to add even more volume. Brushing the hair upwards and away from your face will lift the roots and prevent it from sitting flat on your head.
Then, work to curl your mid-lengths and ends in the direction you want them to lay. This will create effortless volume and give you a professional-looking blowout.
Keep in mind that blow drying can be damaging to your hair. Adding heat protectant before blow-drying your hair is key. Your heat protectant should also include deep hydrating properties such as honey and protect up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
8. Add Volume and Buoyancy with Keratin
Keratin is a protein that is the core makeup of our hair follicles. When we add a keratin treatment or product into our hair care, it can physically thicken our hair strands. Keratin binds to the hair follicle and adds to the existing strand. It also helps with hair thinning and loss as it starts at the scalp and seeps in to provide healthy root growth.
Our hair repair serum is filled with natural plant-derived keratin to penetrate deeply into the hair, repair damage, and prevent future breakage. It leaves the hair with a radiant, weightless shine to support your volumizing efforts.
9. Don't Condition Your Roots
Over-conditioning your roots can disrupt the scalp’s microbiome and weigh your hair down. When applying conditioner, focus on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, where moisture is needed the most.
10. Change Your Hair Parting
A simple yet effective trick for adding instant volume to your hair is to change up your parting regularly. This prevents your hair from getting too comfortable and falling flat.
Move your hair from a middle part to a side part and then to the other side often. This will give you a nice change up and is great for volumizing your hair.
11. Achieving Bounce with Velcro Rollers
Velcro rollers can be a beautiful way to add bounce and curls to your hair without any heat damage. Leaving them in overnight may not always be the most comfortable solution, but it will provide the best results. Be sure to part your hair evenly for a balanced look.
FAQs: How to Get More Volume in Your Hair
Getting that extra oomph in your hair is no small achievement, but armed with the right products and techniques, it’s absolutely attainable for everyone. Let’s delve into some answers to your most commonly asked questions about adding volume to your hair naturally.
Why Does Hair Go Flat?
Our hair can go flat for many reasons, including being too greasy, lacking nutrients, or environmental factors. The cold, for instance, sucks out any moisture in the hair, which is why deep conditioning and hydrating the hair is so important in winter.
However, excessive greasiness can also drag down the roots, which is why choosing the right shampoo and conditioner is so important.
Which Styling Product Adds Volume without Leaving the Hair Stiff or Sticky?
If there’s one styling product you should have on your radar for volume without stiffness or stickiness, it’s Gisou’s Hair Primer. This lightweight wonder preps your hair for styling with natural hold and heat protection.
Unlike thicker primers that can make your hair oily or sticky, our hair primer is enriched with Mirsalehi honey to provide weightless hydration. Propolis, another key ingredient, strengthens your strands and promotes volume. A touch of argan oil leaves you with beautiful shine and softness! What more could a girl ask for?
How Can I Get More Volume at the Roots?
There are a few options when it comes to getting volume to your roots, such as blow-drying your hair upside down. For days when you are going for a full wash, add your primer and take the time to do a proper blowout. But for anyone who has heat damage and is struggling to get their hair back on track, aim for a keratin-infused hair repair serum, followed by velcro rollers for a natural bounce.
The Secret is In Your Products
The secret to volumized hair lies in choosing the right products and following a healthy hair routine. Creating a healthy microbiome and nourishing the hair with moisture should be the center of your focus.
When the hair is dry and unhealthy, it’s very difficult to create natural volume. Opt for products that strike the perfect balance of moisture and nourishment, with vitamins and essential nutrients to promote overall hair health.
