5 Tips On How To Add Volume To Your Hair
Whether you’re aiming for a bombshell blowout or just want to add some bounce to your everyday style, we’ve gathered some tips that’ll transform your hair. While it’s true that we all have different hair types, it’s possible to add volume to anyone’s hair with the right techniques. Keep reading to find out how to lift those roots and create the gorgeous effect of healthy, voluminous hair.
1. Start at the Roots with Backcombing
The secret to gravity-defying volume begins at the roots. Grab a fine-tooth comb and grab a large section of hair where you want to add volume. Gently backcomb the underside of the hair towards the crown of your scalp, starting from your mid-lengths. When done right, this trick will instantly lift and add height to your hair. The key is to do it gently when the hair is completely dry to avoid damage. Once you’ve achieved the desired volume, smooth out the top layer for a seamless finish.
2. Master the Art of Blow-Drying
Blow-drying isn’t just about getting your hair dry; with the right technique, it can also add volume to your hair. After washing your hair, flip it upside down and blow-dry it while gently scrunching the roots with your fingers. You can also use a diffuser attachment to help with this. Once your hair is mostly dry, flip it back and use a round brush to lift the roots while blow-drying and keeping tension around the brush. This technique adds volume, shape and shine simultaneously.

3. Use Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is known for its ability to extend the time between washes. But did you also know it’s a fantastic tool for boosting volume? Part your hair at multiple points along your hairline, spray a bit of dry shampoo at the roots and gently massage it in. If your hair is flat and greasy, the dry shampoo will absorb excess oil and add volume to the hair.
4. Try A Good Quality Mousse
Invest in a good quality volumising mousse – it’s a game-changer. Apply a palm-sized amount to damp hair, focusing on the roots and working it through to the ends. Mousse adds lift, hold, and texture, giving your hair the strength to hold onto its volume all week long. Consider adding a volumising shampoo and conditioner to your shopping list too!

5. Get Crafty with Your Part
Changing up your part can work wonders for adding volume to your hair. If you usually part your hair in the middle, try shifting it to the side after the hair is dried and styled. This simple switch instantly lifts the roots on one side, creating a natural lift. For an extra boost, try teasing along the part with the backcombing technique from earlier.
