Achieving Volume on Day Old Hair

11/04/2014


EASY VOLUME
Who would have thought that achieving volume on fine, thin hair would be impossible? Being one of those fine, thin hair gals, I have been testing so many products and techniques to achieve the big hair oomph and for it to last for over 6 years. I do find that it is easier to achieve volume on day old hair rather than freshly washed. I guess this is the same concept as curls lasting longer.

For freshly washed hair, I do like to use rollers, volumising mousse and a teasing brush. This will be explained in another post at some point as to how I do it at some point. For a day or two old hair, maybe three, hair products is all you need and maybe a hint of teasing. I use:

Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume – Soaks up the excess oils whilst giving volume for a good amount of time however not long enough by itself.
Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray – Great to use after Bastiste to make the volume last longer.
Extra:
Teasing brush – If you have stubborn fine, thin hair, add a little bit of light teasing to the roots. 1 to 2 strokes maximum. There are days where I don’t require teasing. Is it strange that I can feel whether I need to tease or not?
Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray – To set the teasing.

Are there any volumising products you would recommend?

    Unlike you i have very full bodied almost always unruly hair so i try to stay away from volume!

    I'm over here constantly trying to FLATTEN my hair. I know a lot of girls love hair with volume and body, but I think mine has too much…

    I have thin hair and it's difficult to give that added volume. I don't like putting to much product on my hair so what I normally do is I wash my hair at night so come morning, it's dry. I don't comb my hair and just leave it in a bun. Then release it after for a beach wave effect. 😀

  9. it seems batistse is HG for a lot of girls here eh! Usually for day old hair, I wrap it up in a chignon or french twist so it doesnt look so flat!

    I used to use a volumizing agent that you sprinkle on hair at the roots but I can't remember what it was called. Sometimes I use a hair piece!

    you look like you really have big hair! as for me, i stay away from all volumizing products. my hair is thick enough on their own.

    I always heard good reviews on batiste dry shampoo. Volumizing and texturing hair spray is life savior when it comes to bad hair day.

    I have heard good reviews about the Batiste brand. I'm not really fond of Volume adding products 'coz I'm on the other side with a voluminous hair.
