The mantra “The Bigger, The Better” certainly reigns true when it comes to your hair. Whilst Cheryl Cole took it a step to far trying to crack America, we have to say when volume is done right, there isn’t much you feel you can’t conquer!
Whilst there are lots of brands out there catering for your volume boosting needs, there are some tricks at home to help you on the way…
Reduce the brush time
Reducing the amount of time you spend brushing your hair and you may find a new leash of life in your mane. Brushing too much (with the wrong type of brush) can result in you pulling out more than you bargained for, weakening hair at the root.
A technique used up stylists across the world. Simply back-combing will give your hair a really simple lift. Perfect for a glamourous nightlife look.
Get a bit chilly
When in the shower, rinse your hair with cold water at the end. It may be uncomfortable for a minute, but the cold blast strengthens your hair from root to tip aiding in volume boosting. Also, remember to use the cold setting on your hairdryer to lock all those nutrients into your mane.
Good hair is a boost in self confidence, and there are plenty of products out there to help aid you in the search for a voluptuous mop. Here are some little tips to help you on the way:
Do you have fine hair? Curly or straight? Do you suffer from a sensitive scalp? Analyse your hair type before purchasing to make sure you’re getting the right solution to your problems. Those who suffer from dandruff should opt for sensitive formulas that won’t irritate the skin whilst curly haired gals may only need a slight boost for special occasions. The sort of strong product (a volumising powder for example) that can be used sparingly as a lift.
Aim for maintenance-free
There are an abundance of products tailor-made for any hair type and crisis in mind, but one of the best things you can do for your hair is to give it a break from these said products. Never use your beauty products (make-up included) when you don’t have to. This allows your hair (and skin) to rejuvenate as your body stocks up on those natural oils.
In a professional sense of course! Getting on the good side of your hairdressers means better advice for any sort of hair crisis that may occur. Whilst many hairdressers do have certain alliances with particular brands, and these brands could cost you an arm and a leg, they also have tips to battle your beauty woes.
Over the last few days, there are been a chill in the air. Autumn is officially here and it won’t be long before winter takes hold. This poses many problems for your beauty regime. The harsh wind and cutting chill dries out your mane so when purchasing new hair products in the next couple of months, consider formulas that will not only boost your hair but gives it the ultimate protection against the elements too.
