We all know volume plays a huge part in making our hair look beautiful. It lends your hair a youthful bounce and a knockout appearance. But, especially this time of year, our hair can start to look pretty flat. To help you look and feel your best without spending a fortune, Madison Reed has put together a checklist of tried and true tips for gaining volume at home:
Soak Up the Oil
Most of us use dry shampoo first thing in the morning, when we notice grease buildup on the top the head. But did you know another way to get the most out of your dry shampoo, and to get some extra volume, is to apply it to your hair at the roots before bed? This way, the dry shampoo will have enough time for to soak in the oils and work to full effect. You’ll wake up to gorgeous, full hair. And if you use Madison Reed’s Root Touch Up, it doubles beautifully as a dry shampoo for anytime—not only does it cover those gray roots, it makes second-day hair look rich and full!
Tie it Up
When you’re headed to an event or meeting, tie your hair up at the crown of your head before stepping out. Let your hair down when you get there for the appearance of fresh volume. This trick is used by top celebrities and style icons to achieve chic, effortlessly voluminous hair.
Blow It Up
First, work Madison Reed’s Style into hair, focusing on roots but fully working through lengths and ends as well. Then, wrap a section of hair on a round brush, beginning at the roots, and dry hair in the opposite direction that you want it to fall. Then for added volume, flip your hair over your head (up from how it usually lays) and blow dry from the roots up along the hair shaft. Use the cool button when finishing to extend and set the style. After you’re done, use Tame to give your hair a smooth, frizz-free finish.
