  • I use Sunsilk Anti Flat and when I blow dry my hair I lean over and blowdry it. It makes a big differenve if you bend over and blow dry it.

  • Use a volumizing mouse!! Then blow dry your hair upside down!

  • you could get some layers put into it, to remove weight. and, when blowdrying, try 'over-directing' ...in other words, if you wear a part, direct your hair/blowdryer across the part, in opposite direction you'll actually be wearing the style. you'll get a bit more volume because you will have 'upset' the natural 'lay' of the hair. use a volumizing spritz/gel/mouse (big sexy root pump is awesome!) at the roots and down the shaft..and comb product through, to evenly distribute. then go crazy with the blowdryer!
