Has your daily do been looking limp and lifeless?  Are you desperate to pump up the volume but refuse to sacrifice condition searching for volume?  Don’t worry, we got you covered when it comes to adding damage free volume!

Step One: Determine Why Your Hair Is Lacking Volume

Before you take a deep dive into hair products, you should start from square one and do some sleuthing; figure out what’s causing those lifeless locks.  Is it a function of oily hair or possibly just product buildup?  Could the problem lie in your hormones?  Is there an imbalance of estrogen or testosterone?

Albeit these issues can be amended through a doctor’s consultation or incorporating a clarifying shampoo into your hair routine, but some matters require a long-term approach.  When it comes to that au-naturel volume, you either have it or you don’t and your genes could be at the epicenter of it. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as too much hydration (one of the main causes of flat hair).  No matter how effectively and frequently you are applying your hair spray, if your hair is too hydrated, those overly moist roots will drastically weigh down your finished look.

Now, if you’re thinking, ‘this isn’t me,’ ask yourself if your roots look oily.  If it’s hard to discern, an easy way to determine this is to press a tissue on your dry, clean scalp.  If there’s a small oil stain, then your hair is healthy.  If there are no traces of oil, then it lacks moisture.  Now what you don’t want is to have a fully covered tissue – hello oily hair!  For those with Types 2, 3 and 4 hair, you can use this tissue method or simply look to where your waves or curls start.  Do they begin to form lower than usual?  Chances are, if you answered yes to any of these questions, your hair could use the extra lift.

Step Two: Don’t Overuse Your Conditioner

Although you can adjust the quantity of conditioner based on your hair length, density, and porosity, strive to match the directions on the bottle.  If you have thinner hair or low porosity, add less, and likewise, if you have curly or wavy hair add more.  It would be best if you always started with the specified amount as recommended by the manufacturer but feel free to customize your approach to conditioning.  And if your hair is on the thin/fine side, you may not need to condition with every shampoo.  Finally, if you’re applying conditioner to the roots of your hair, you are moisturizing an area that does not need it.  Apply to midshaft and ends only!

Step Three: Styling

Now to the fun part.  The bonafide approach to getting that runway-ready voluminous look is to add layers with a haircut.

Longer layers will suit type 2, 3 and 4 hair, and short layers will complement those with Type 1 hair.  So next time you choose your haircut, try to visualize how your texture, density and hair length will make or break your volume possibilities.

In conjunction with mastering those age-old techniques like teasing, backcombing and blow-drying your hair upside down, think in terms of sections with whatever style you wish to rock.  A sure way to define those layers and add major volume is to use Saints & Sinners Divine Dry Finish Texture Spray.
