How to create BIG hair at home

How to create big hair at home
Volume (adj)
Definition: involving large quantities
Tools needed: Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner and or Mousse or Styling tonic, hair pins, velcro rollers or round brushes and a blow dryer with an air director on the tip

Many women who have fine hair want more volume in their tresses to create the illusion they have thicker hair. Based on the density or the amount of hair per square inch, volume can be achieved with a combination of styling products and tools. Today, because the beauty industry is a multimillion dollar industry, it offers too many Volumizing products to name here. Below is a small list of suggestions on what to do at home to create the look you want.

Start by cleansing and conditioning the hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner especially for fine hair.

Towel dry the hair to get the water weight out or the water will extend the drying time and not allow the Volumizing products to do their work.

Add a mousse or styling tonic only at the roots. Over doing this will cause the hair to be stiff and the strands will stick together.

Flip your head over and use your fingers to lift the hair at the root and blow dry until the root area is dry and lifted. Leaving the ends 75% damp, flip your head back up and section the hair. By sectioning the hair to roller set or blow dry will make your big hair look neat and polished.

Next, you can either add Velcro rollers and set the hair (let the hair dry completely before taking rollers out), or use a round brush and after each section pin the curl into place (as in the photo below).

After doing your make up and getting dressed, you can then take out the rollers and pins, finger style into place and reveal your big beautiful head of hair.

Beauty Tip: Fine hair CAN have the illusion of large quantities of hair!
