How I Add Volume to My Hair

Although my hair has gotten quite long over the past year, it is still quite fine, and there isn't much of it. So every now and then (read, most of the time) I like to use products that fake the fact that I haven't got a lot up there.


First up I like to wash my hair with a thickening or volumising shampoo and conditioner  At the moment I'm using these two by John Frieda.* They have a lovely watermelon scent to them, and really lather up my hair, which itself makes my hair feel volumised, please tell me I'm not alone in this. They also don't make my hair greasy, which a lot of products tend to, nor do they irritate my scalp, which I also have a problem with.


After the shower, I like to spritz in some of this Bumble and Bumble thickening tonic.


I then like to scrunch it into my roots. And make a funny face....


I then flip my hair upside down, and dry it until it's around 80% dry-ish.


If I'm taking my time, I like to take a big round brush, and blow dry the ends (see above picture.) If not, I like to just take some salt/texturising spray, and leave it through the ends (see below picture.)


'Scuse the stupid face, but that is how it usually looks when finished.

I would love to hear some of your volumising tips, so if you have any, leave them as a comment, pretty please.

P.S This was my attempt at a hair swish; I tried three times, then gave myself a headache. I am a cool cookie!!!


*I was given these products for consideraton, I am not being compensated to post about them. All opinions are mine and my scalps!
They have however asked me to link to their Brilliant Brunette products, which I would fully recommend checking out :)
