How to boost the volume of your hair

Tip one: Use the right shampoo. Lots of good hair-care brands produce shampoos specifically for producing volume in hair. These are designed to give you an extra boost at the roots.

Look for a lightweight conditioner that's specifically designed to condition while maintaining volume. If you don't have dry roots, try applying conditioner from the mid lengths to the tips rather than all over your hair.

A good shampoo will remove residue, but you also need to ensure that the shampoo and conditioner are thoroughly rinsed out. It takes around five minutes for a golf ball sized application of product to get rinsed out thoroughly.

Tip four: When it comes to creating volume, mousse can be a girl's best friend. Mousse is generally applied to towel tried hair. It can coat each strand of hair in a light layer of product to really add volume.

Tip five: A good blowdry will boost the volume of even the flattest of hairs. Rough dry upside down to create lift at the roots. Then flip your head the right way and finish by blowdrying in one direction.
