Hair stuff

How to get volume in hair

Update from this post -- after about a week of experimenting with various methods, I can certainly say that the following have made their way into my cabinet:

* Sally Hershberger Major Body Volumizing Style Boost (Hairspray)
* Sally Hershberger Supreme Lift Root Boost & Heat Protect
* TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For a Day Thickening Spray

The Oscar Blandi Pronto Texture & Volume Spray was really not a necessity. My hair looks so good upon immediate use, but falls to nothingness after about 5 minutes. I could see this being a great product for those of you with a lot of thick strands.

I know the least about hair so read about my routine with a grain of salt. I basically spray the Root Boost & Heat Protectant into my hair while it's fully wet, then blow dry on high (+hot) for just a few seconds to prep it for the other stuff. Afterwards, I'll blast Tigi's thickening spray into the roots and continue blow drying until my hair is half-way dry. Feel free to use a thickening lotion at this point - I use less than a dime size amount of Redken Thickening Lotion 06 Body Builder (this is not new to my hair routine) and blow dry until fully dry. If I'm not lazy, I'll curl my hair with a 2in barrel iron to get loose waves and finish off with a few spritz of the Sally Hershberger volumizing spray. And if it's a good hair day, my hair will look like above.


  1. 1. love your hair here
    2. LOVE how you make your cheeks pop!



  2. love how the hair looks. i am such a lazy person when it comes to my hair. I use mousse for volume and just blow dry it on hot. I might have to Tigi's spray to see if it works for my roots. I still have to find something for my roots as they just lay flat no matter what. The long hair does not help it either.


I <3 U. Thank you for making my day!
