How to Get More Volume out of Your Hair

Is your hair looking dull and flat? Could you use some volume in your life? Well, lucky for you, Brilliance New York has all of the right hair tools, tips, and tricks to help you get more volume out of your hair routine! Just follow these time-tested tips and you’ll be well on your way to having brilliant hair!

Use a Clarifying Shampoo

Styling your hair starts long before you ever put a hair tool to it. If you really want to have voluminous hair then you need to make sure that you do everything you can to remove excess oil and hair product that would weigh your locks down!

We recommend that you use an incredibly effective shampoo that removes all of the hair product and excess oil from your roots that make your hair look dull and flat. This Essential Hydration Shampoo should do the trick.

Wash well, and as needed!

Change Your Part

If you part your hair a particular way, your hair gets used to laying flat that way. One way that you can get more volume from your hair is to change the way that you part your hair. Either part it the opposite direction that you normally do, or simply move your part an inch over.

This will prop your hair up brilliantly.

Back Brush Your Roots

While teasing your hair has a bad rap, there are more gentle ways to back brush your hair in order to get more volume.

Take this styling brush from BNY and gently brush your roots in the direction of your scalp. This is a gentle form of teasing that will add volume to your hair without creating all of those dreadful knots and tangles!

Blow Dry Your Hair Upside Down

If you’re looking for one of the fastest ways to get volume from your hair, then look no further than the ProDryer 3600 Professional Hair Dryer! Take this blow dryer and blow-dry your hair upside-down!

Yes, upside-down.

The easiest way to blow dry your hair for volume is to bend over and let your hair hand below your head while you blow dry it from root to ends.

Use a Flat IRON

In a similar fashion to how you would blow your hair out for volume, you can also use a flat iron to get volume out of even the most dull and flat hair!

This technique is simple, and it only requires you to straighten your hair upwards— again, from root to end. Only this time, you can stand up straight while you do it.

Adding heat while you style your hair upwards will help give you that much wanted volume.

Use a Bigger Curling IRON Barrel for Bigger Curls

Finally, curling your hair to get volume requires a little more skill but it’s well worth it! Simply section your hair off: the back, each side, the top, and your bangs.

Curl each section into big loose curls and voila!
