Flat hair? Add serious volume with these tips

When it comes to hair, every woman wants thick, voluminous locks.

Those of us with hair that just seems to stick to our scalp and never move will know only too well the feeling of envy when a woman with bouncy large hair walks by.

Now, we have some seriously simple tips on how you can add some volume to your hair.

Choose your shampoo and conditioner wisely
With so many products on the market now it’s not hard to find one to suit your hair. Try using really light-weight products that won’t cling to the hair follicles after you’ve rinsed, weighing your hair down and making it appear flat.

Don’t go overboard
When it comes to conditioner, it’s important to only apply it to the ends of your hair. Any more and your hair will be weighed down and flat as a pancake.

Add some layers
Layers will give your hair some bounce and give it some volume. Speak to your hairdresser about what you want and see what they come up with.

Dry your hair upside down
When drying your hair after a shower, throw your head upside and dry your hair from there.

Backcomb can be your friend
Now we don’t mean channelling Cheryl Cole circa the X Factor US debacle. Backcombing in a subtle way can be a great way to boost some volume for your roots.

Dry shampoo
People with thinner hair will know that greasiness is never far away, meaning dry shampoo is your BFF. However, dry shampoo is also great for creating volume.
