I think many women, caring for their hair, want to achieve not only soft, thick, silky hair, but also volume. The volume also depends on the type and structure of the hair.
My hair is pretty heavy. In addition, I do not wear short haircuts, but the longer the hair, the harder it is for them to maintain or give volume.
In this topic, I would like to share with the readers of Alimero those observations and ways to give the volume that I use. I would be glad if you tell us about your experience too!
I already wrote about biolamination and how to make stuffed, so I will not dwell on it again.
Use hair dryer
I managed to create volume with the help of a hair dryer when I had hair down to my shoulders. In addition, I am not a fan of various foams and hair sprays, and of a hair dryer, too, so I used this method only on special occasions.
At first I applied a comb foam or mousse for the volume of hair – from root to tip and separately for each strand. There is one delicate moment here. It is necessary that the tool was distributed over all the hair, but that it was not too much.
Just when you put on each strand, it is more difficult to navigate how much mousse ends up on the hair. And when there is too much of it, on the contrary, it weights down the hair and, accordingly, there can be no question of any volume.
It is necessary to dry hair, having inclined a head and having begun from a nape. The air flow should be directed in the opposite direction of hair growth. Having dried your hair almost to dryness, shape it with a round massage brush, lifting it at the roots and sprinkling with a little varnish to fix.
Now I have longer hair and this option does not suit me. But, I think, those who have lighter hair, you can try.
You can get the volume using the old method – curlers. For this purpose, well suited large papilotki.
They do not require heating, therefore, in my opinion, their use is preferable to a hair dryer. They bend well, they can be fixed in any place and position.
If the hair is not heavy, you can use hair curlers without special tools. After all, I first put a small amount of mousse or foam on the hair for the volume of the hair, and only then I curl it on a curler. After their removal, it is better not to comb the hair, but only straighten it with your hands.
Shampoos and conditioners
Hair care products are also important. But it’s hard to give advice. I think, except as an experiment, it is impossible to know if a shampoo will give volume to hair or not.
Moreover, not always the means that will give the volume will go with just such a marking. For example, I used Natura Siberica shampoo labeled Volume and Care. With all its positive qualities, I felt one drawback – no volume.
But Head Shoulders with marking Against hair loss – it suits me perfectly in all respects and gives my hair the right amount! I use it with great pleasure for a long time. If I see it in the store, I try to take it in reserve =)
As for the balsams, conditioners, then I have not yet come across one that would have a significant impact on the volume of my hair. Smooth, silky, shiny – anything, but not volume))
But not so long ago I learned that a balm or conditioner should be applied to hair from the middle of the length to the ends. For some reason, I never thought about it and put it all along. But, on the contrary, it made the hair heavier … Perhaps that is why none of the conditioners I used earlier managed to cope with their task.
Not so long ago, drew attention to the hair balm Dessange. If my memory serves me, he went for brittle and split ends. I did not take it. Firstly, fortunately, I don’t have these problems now, and secondly, I would like to know more about this company and its products.
I would be grateful if any of you will share your experience if you are familiar with this company!
Well gives volume rinsing decoction of nettle. Nettle leaves (you can take fresh, and you can buy at the pharmacy) you need to pour boiling water and let it brew for 30-40 minutes. Cool and rinse hair after washing.
The effect is based on the fact that the scaly sheath of the hair swells up, as a result of which the hair looks more voluminous.
From home masks the most effective, which gave the volume to my hair is a gelatinous mask.
The other day I read about another interesting mask, but I did not have time to try it yet, because ran out of castor oil.
It is necessary to combine 2/3 of the castor oil and 1/3 of the vodka, rub the mass into the hair roots and leave for 30-60 minutes. Then rinse without shampoo. The mask promises silky hair, and after 2-3 months – volume.
I really want to try. True, there is one doubt – at the expense of flushing without shampoo. Usually, I always wash off the oil masks with some means. But, perhaps, due to the compound with alcohol, it will wash off without problems. As soon as I buy oil, I will immediately test this mask. Who is with me? =)
