XI HAIR BLOG - 6 ways to get hair volume that lasts
Blow Dry Upside Down
Flip the switch and blow dry your hair upside down! The heat, tension and pure gravity will pull the strands away from your hair so that when you flip over, you’ve got hair that even an 80s hair band would be envious of.
Layers make your hair lighter and give it some bounce, they also create the illusion that you have more hair as there are many levels of it! The next time you go in for a cut, let your stylist know that you want layers to add volume. They’ll know just what you mean!
If your hair is too thin, layering might not be an option for you. In that case, XI Hair Remy human hair extensions add lots of volume AND length for the perfect, dreamy ‘do.
Try Hair Rollers
Even this might seem like an outdated method, hair curlers are really quite effective! They give your hair a soft, natural, Hollywood-glam look and do it all without heat. Hair curlers are great, too, because they are a very affordable option.
Dye Your Hair
Processing your hair roughs up the follicles and makes your hair look thicker than it really is! A trip to the salon and a quick colour change will have you voluminous for a few days with little to no work from you at all.
You can also ask your stylist to add highlights and lowlights to create the illusion of dimension on your head. You’d be surprised at how much magic your stylist can create!
Especially if you’re going to start skipping a shampoo every now and again, you’ll want to invest in a great dry shampoo. Dry shampoos absorb excess oil while simultaneously lifting your hair at the root!
You can splurge on a salt spray or easily make your own! All you have to do is mix some sea salt into warm water, put it in a spray bottle, and spritz away when your hair is damp. If you want beachy waves, spray your damp hair with salt spray and then twist a couple loose braids, when your hair is dry, give it a good shake and you’ll look like you just got back from Malibu!
