Before you dry, curl or do any kind of styling to your hair, it is important to prepare your hair by using shampoo and conditioner that add volume. Your best bet is to use shampoos and conditioners that are non crème based. I recommend the John Frieda® Luxurious Volume Touchably Full Shampoo and conditioner.

2. Blow dry your hair upside down:

This trick is one of the best ways to add volume that lasts for a very long time. After washing your hair with volume increasing shampoo and conditioner, air dry your hair till it has been 50% dry. Then bend your head forward and dry your hair upside down. The reason why this trick works in increasing volume is because it lifts the hair naturally from the roots while drying it upside down. Do not forget to use a big round brush as this will just make to process easier.

3. Use dry shampoo:

If you do not have time to wash your hair, or your scalp looks oily and sticky, use a dry shampoo as this will absorb the moistness and oil thus giving your scalp a fuller look.

4. Tease and back comb your hair:

Back combing and teasing are an effective way to add volume to your hair. One can hardly ever go wrong with it. Hold your hair away from the scalp and gently comb it backwards towards your scalp. Then leave the strand of hair and see the magic.

5. Overnight buns:

When your hair is semi-dry, pin it up in a loose bun and let it sit for the night. In the morning, untie the bun and viola you have pretty looking hair with an amazing volume.

6. Use your hands:


When you are in a hurry and do not have time for any of the above, use your fingertips to create volume. Gently massage your scalp with your fingertip and raise your hair roots. This will surely give it an instant volume.

7. Get appropriate haircut:

Too many layers or steps in your hair will just make your hair look thinner. Go for cuts that have fewer layers as this makes your hair look fuller and gives you better volume.

8. Use rollers and curling irons:

Rollers and curling irons even straightners can be use to add volume.

Keep the rollers on for at least a few hours before removing them. Heat rollers would be perfect for adding volume but normal rollers too will do the trick. Curlers and straightners too can be used to add or fake volume to your hair.

9. Serums and leave ins are a crime:

If you want to fake volume to your hair, then Serums and Leave in conditioners are a huge mistake. They help in taming the hair and add moisture to the hair thus making it look sleek.
