Hi lovelies, and happy Friday! I hope the week has been good for everyone so far and I know we are all looking forward to the long weekend ahead! I mean who doesn’t love a 3-day weekend?!
I posted a video last weekend when I was getting ready for a date night with Jordan and I got so many questions about my hair and how I get so much volume added to it, especially when it’s been up in a pony tail or bun all day (literally always my weekend hairstyle haha). So I thought I would get on here and share a few of my top tips for how I add volume and body to my hair when styling.
Tip #1: Blow Dry Upside Down
I can 100% tell a difference in the way my hair styles when I blow dry it versus when I let it dry on its own. Now, I still don’t always blow dry it (most of the time I don’t, it’s because I’m being lazy or I’m too tired haha) but I have started blow drying it a lot more now that I only wash it about once a week. Whenever I blow dry my hair, I usually do so in 3 different sections (bottom layer, middle layer, then top layer).
First, I’ll use a claw clip to clip up and divide my hair. Then I’ll blow dry the bottom layer and the middle layer like normal but when I get to the top layer, I’ll flip my hair over and blow dry it from underneath so it gets the top layer dry and also gives it some extra volume while doing so.
Tip: Try not to really brush it out after you blow dry it upside down.
Tip #2: Wear Rollers in the Front
After I blow dry my hair, I’ll wear 1 or 2 of these hair rollers in the front of my hair to give the front of my hair even more boost. I’ll also normally put 1 or 2 these in my hair in the morning while I’m getting ready if I’m going to be styling my hair that day. That way it helps give my hair a little extra boost to frame my face and makes it look volumized.
Tip: I use the pink ones for my hair (the biggest size).
Tip #3: Use Dry Shampoo & Texturizing Spray
Dry shampoo and texturizing spray are probably the things that give my hair the MOST volume and body. I use dry shampoo daily pretty much starting day 2 after washing my hair. I apply it at night after I get out of the shower and let it sit in my hair overnight to soak up any oils. By morning, it’s soaked up all of the oils in my hair so my hair doesn’t look oily AND the white powdery-ness is gone from using the dry shampoo.
I’ll also use texturizing spray when styling my hair to help my curls hold and help bump my hair up a little more. I spray it right at the roots of my hair and then use my fingers to work it in and tousle it. I normally only use this when styling my hair for the first time each week. After that, I don’t find that my hair really needs it to make my curls hold and give my hair body.
(I think one of my texturizing sprays I use is out of stock online right now. This is my other one that I use and love! I have both of these and use them pretty much interchangeably, just whichever one I grab first.)
These three tips together help to give me extra volume and boost whenever I style my hair! If I’m being completely honest though, TX humidity plays a part in the volumizing of my hair as well haha. My hair stays tame for a while with hair spray, but it can only do so much in the hot and humid heat here!
I hope this helps and I hope you guys are able to try out these tips and get your hair nice and volumized too!
Thanks for reading lovelies and have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Xx.
