How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair How to Get Voluminous-Looking Hair

If you’ve ever headed out the door after styling your strands into a bouncy blowout only to catch sight of yourself a few hours later and notice your hair is looking hopelessly limp, you’re not alone. The good news is that you can make thin or fine hair look thick and full of volume with the right hair care products and styling tips. Ready to get voluminous-looking hair? Go ahead and follow our six voluminous hair tips below—then show off your big, beautiful mane!

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #1: USE A VOLUME SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

Upping how much volume your hair has starts in the shower. If you have thin or fine hair, look for a system of shampoo and conditioner that can help make your hair look like it has more volume than it really does, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner. Apply the shampoo on wet hair, gently massaging it through your strands, then rinse out and follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for one to two minutes before rinsing out.

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #2: APPLY VOLUMIZING MOUSSE TO DAMP HAIR

Once you’re out of the shower, the product you work through your strands is crucial. It’s a good idea to stay away from heavy pomades and oils, which can weigh down fine hair. Instead, use a body-boosting product, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse, to create the appearance of thicker hair. Shake well, dispense mousse into your hand, and distribute evenly throughout damp hair. Then, blow-dry for a final look that’s filled with body. Bonus: This volumizing mousse doubles up as a heat protectant!

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #3: DO THE FLIP WHILE YOU BLOW-DRY

Have you ever taken the time to blow-dry your hair only to wonder why on earth it looks so flat? Well, did you do the flip? When you blow-dry your hair with your head flipped over, you automatically get more lift at the roots since your hair is hanging away from your head. If you don’t like flipping your head, then just be sure to use a large round brush to pull your hair away from you head and blow-dry that way, as this can also help add the look of volume.

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #4: ADD A ROOT LIFTER TO YOUR STYLING ARSENAL

When it comes to voluminous-looking hair, it all comes back to your roots. Give your mane an extra lift by spritzing on a root lifter, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. This unique fan spray offers targeted root application for instant lift and fullness. The strong hold gives body to any style for a volumized, textured look that lasts.

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #5: BACKCOMB YOUR CROWN

Most celebrity hairstyles with effortless-looking body have been teased and backcombed. To get the look, start by prepping with your root lifter, creating a volumized base with workable texture. Then, separate a one-inch section at the crown and comb to smooth out tangles. With one hand, firmly hold the section straight up and use your other hand to insert the comb mid-shaft. Run it down in a quick, short stroke to the scalp. When you reach the bottom, pull the comb out and repeat the movement until you reach the desired fullness. Continue around the crown. When you’re done, instead of just lightly smoothing the sections with a comb, brush all of the hair at the crown of your head straight back to get a backcombed look. Once everything looks just right, spritz with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray to seal the deal.

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #6: ADD BODY THROUGHOUT

For a completely voluminous look, you’ll want to add some body throughout your mane to complement those amped up roots, right? Grab the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Air-Blown Texture Mist and spritz it onto your hair, making sure to hit all of your layers. This mist adds weightless texture and volume to hair, leaving you with a full-bodied, blown-out look.

VOLUMINOUS HAIR TIP #7: CONSIDER CURLS

Straight hair often looks flatter than hair with curls or waves. And since curly hair is absolutely stunning, why not embrace curled hair? Grab your curling wand and add a few spirals to your style to help get that gorgeous volume you’re seeking.
