what your secret to volumnous hair?

I have straight hair and it's been a bit dull lately. How do I give it lots of volume? Not crazy '80's volume lol. It's shoulder length

  • I use Aveeno volumizing foam. It's been working pretty well so far. I also blow dry upside down :)

  • I comb/brush my hair upside down, so when I lift my head it's not super fuzzy and I have to do minimal straightening (if any at all) when I am done.

    I also use a root lifter and a good light mousse, all from the Big Sexy hair line.

  • I grow enough hair for 2-3 people. I get volume because I have tons of hair. I'm always working on squishing it down.

  • I round brush my own hair with Aveda's volumizing tonic and phomollient. And I also add some of morocco method's volumizing mist spray just for shine and more volume.
