CBSG5861 tips for voluminous hair

Hello my lovelies!

This post is about what I personally do to get the most volume for my hair without damaging it.

Now, some of you may be familiar with the following tips, while others may even disagree with my routine- nevertheless, I'm putting it out there for your consideration, obviously we don't have the same hair and what works for me might not work for you, etc etc... Anyway, off we go:

1. Light formula shampoo: Ok, this is no big news- a shampoo for fine hair doesn't necessarily mean that you'll rinse it off and immediately get big "hair", but rather that it doesn't contain moisturising agents that tend to weigh it down. I always opt for gel formulas and stay away from creamy shampoos! Currently I'm using the Syoss Volume Lift shampoo, I like it a lot ;)

2. No conditioner: yep, not a single drop of it! I've tried lots of conditioners that claim to detangle the hair without weighing it down, and none worked- so I'm skipping it. You might wonder how I comb my hair? Well... read the next tip, please ;)

3. No combing! Except the bangles and the front bits of my hair, I leave the rest uncombed. I feel that the motion of the hairbrush actually straightens the hair, thus aiding in their loss of volume. Please note that I follow this tip only when I'm not straightening/curling my hair with a flat iron, that job requires perfectly detangled hair!

4. No blow-drying: It thins down the diameter of the hair strand. Period. During summer, I stay away from my blowdryer; now that it's winter, I roll my hair in 2-3 towels so that they absorb most of the , and then I blow-dry my hair only for 1 minute, tops!

5. Highest hold hairspray: I don't know why, but all sales assistants were giving me medium hold hairsprays "because you have thin hair". Gee, thanks a lot! My hair needs strong products that can hold some volume, heloooo! I'm currently using a Palette hairspray (ozone layer-friendly, too) in the strongest hold available.

6. Teasing: again, this isn't a new thing but I thought I mentioned it. I still haven't mastered the teasing technique, so if you have any tips please share them below ;)

7. No cream styling products: that includes waxes, styling pastes, taming creams... Again, I'm repeating myself but they weigh the hair down.

I'd love to read your tips for voluminous hair! Post away ;)
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!



  1. Great post! Well, for me the truth is that if the weather is humid, whatever I do my curls won't hold! But in normal conditions I do it your way or with a curler. Another thing that I like to do is to take sections of my hair and swirl them with my fingers and then pin them down with bobby pins (on damp hair). I let my hair dry and then I have curls or waves, depending on the way I swirl the hair. It works better with shorter hair but I guess it'll work for you too if you try it.

  2. Aha! Waves with no heat, that must be so cool!
    I'll definitely try it, hope it works with my hair ;)

  3. Great post! I have really been into voluminous hair as well!

  4. Thanks, hun! Glad you enjoyed it ;)
