Fed up with flat hair? Is your fine hair in need of a lift? Fret not. It’s easy to keep a spring in your step when there is a bounce in your roots! Prep, prime and style your way to perfection with this routine designed to create hair volume. Read on for all the steps you can take to get that gloriously full bouncy look that many lust after. Plus, all the amplifying, root lifting, plumping, hair volumising sprays and mousses that can help you nail a style that packs a punch.
Start the right way: prep your hair for styling by lathering up with a volumising shampoo & conditioner like Bountifully Bouncy Volumising Shampoo and Bountifully Bouncy Volumising Conditioner. This duo have amplifying formulas that add body and won’t weigh hair down. The lightweight conditioner, which contains blackcurrant extract, helps to ‘big up’ even fine hair. Grape seed oil and aloe vera gel will ensure your locks are in good condition, ready for blow drying. The pair will leave your hair feeling silky, shiny and manageable. Massage the shampoo in with your fingers to create a rich lather, then rinse, repeat and rinse again. Follow with conditioner, smoothing through your hair from roots to tip and leave for 1-2 minutes. Next step, it’s time to prime.
A hair primer fills and seals the cuticle before styling to ensure your strands are super smooth, and it acts as an excellent base for styling. Mix 3-5 pumps of Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm, along with a few drops of Smoothed, Sealed and Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil for Fine Hair into your palms. Then work the mixture through hair from roots to ends using your fingers like a comb.
This powerful combo will protect your hair from heat styling and frizz, and give you volume in all the right places. Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational Volumising No Oil Oil for Fine Hair has an ultralight, water-based formula, so it adds volume, body and shine, without leaving hair feeling greasy or lank: magic! Now you’ve set the perfect base, it’s time to hit the big time. You’re ready to style it up.
Style for the big time
It’s time for some extra oomph. Getting volume at the roots can be really tricky to manage if you have fine or limp hair, but it’s super easy with Up, Up & Away Root Lift Mousse. Simply use this handy little root lifting spray to give hair a lift and the sky is the limit! It dispenses as a spray and instantly transforms into a mousse, giving hair life and body. Spray it into sections of towel dried hair at the roots, then comb through and blow dry the hair in sections. Your blow-drying technique will make all the difference between flat and full-bodied hair. For maximum body, arm yourself with a round brush and start to blow-dry your hair at the roots.
Our co-founder Adam Reed says, “Big, beautiful hair never goes out of fashion. Lift the hair up from the root and dry from root to tip. If you dry the root first by lifting the hair away, you will get a great, full foundation in the hair. Up, Up & Away Root Lift Mousse is my product of choice to give guts directly at the roots with ease.” Keep blow drying until hair is dry. Once you’ve got the look you want, you’ll want to keep it that way. Our founder Adam says, “Use product to maintain volume in the hair such as our Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray.”
So, what does volumising spray do? It’s great for hair that needs to be plumped up in a flash and works brilliantly as a volumising spray for fine hair as it gives a pick-me-up at the roots in an instant. You can pop it in your handbag to use on the go and give your hair a boost throughout the day. How does volumising spray work? Shake the can and simply spray a healthy dose in at the roots from underneath in an upwards direction. Massage it into the roots of your hair to give lift to your locks straight away. This one smells absolutely divine as well as providing tremendous volume on the go. What more could a girl ask for?
