Volume boosting hair hacks

Volume boosting hair hacks

There’s nothing worse than drab and lifeless hair, which is why a big part of your perfect hair journey is searching for ways to add volume and boost your tresses.

We’ve asked our favorite hair experts and checked with all of our resources to come up with the biggest and best hair-boosting hacks we could find. Get ready to wow with way-out hair.

Change your part: If you’ve been parting your hair the same way for years, you’ve actually been training your hair roots to grow that way. Combing it the other way creates an instant boost at the crown.

Back-brush the lower layers: Don’t go crazy and tease your hair until it begs for mercy, but a little back-brushing on the under layers can give you some added lift.

Tip-over: When you blow-dry your hair, if you bend at the waist and dry it upside down you’ll add lift. Just make sure to dry the roots all the way. It’s the drying that gives them some boost. For the length of your hair, you might need to finish with a round brush to keep it sleek and smooth.

Style in your sleep: Dampen your hair slightly before bed and then pull it up into a loose bun overnight. Pulling your hair up and letting the roots dry that way gives them the same lift that drying upside down would but without the damaging effects of a blow dryer.

Just be sure to use a soft scrunchie or cloth ties because elastic hair bands can do more damage than good.

Volume-building products: Look for products that are designed to boost your volume. From shampoos to finishing products. If it’s volume you want, then these specially-created gravity-defying haircare gems are what you need.

Spritz your brush: Products can weigh down your hair, especially if you’re using too much or too many of them. Try using a minimal amount of product that you spritz on your brush before you use it.

Think of it like dipping the fork tines into your salad dressing rather than slathering the lettuce with unhealthy goo. You still get the flavor, but you cut out the calories. With your hair product, you still get the benefits without drenching your hair in heavy products.

Use dry shampoo: Dry shampoo not only soaks up oils that can weigh your hair down, but it also adds volume. Using dry shampoo at the roots takes care of your oil problem, spraying it down the shaft adds volume everywhere.

Feed your hair: This isn’t a quick and dirty way to get volume, it’s more of a lifestyle choice, but it works.

Eggs are packed with healthy protein, which gives you thick and healthy hair. Kale is a great source of iron, biotin, and zinc, which all support hair health. We’ve found this fantastic Kale & Egg Wrap recipe to give you ample amounts of both and help get you started on a hair-healthy diet.

Try a scalp massage: Massaging your scalp improves circulation, which nourishes your hair follicles. The healthier your hair is the plumper it’s going to be. If your hair is dry and starved for moisture, adding a few drops of Hair La Vie Serum will feed your hair without weighing down the strands.

Go curly: Wavy and curly hair naturally looks full of body and volume when compared to straight hair. Try a style that includes more curl to give you the lift that you want. You don’t have to rely on all-over curls, just a few well-placed waves can do the trick.

Using large hot rollers is a great way to lift your hair from the crown, give it a little wave and a lot of body.

Final thoughts

The best way to boost your hair and give it body is to switch to natural products that do more good than harm. By nurturing your hair and creating a healthy environment for it to grow in, you get lush and shiny hair that’s ready to make a big, bold statement.
