5 Ways to Boost Your Hair’s Volume

Tues, 23 Apr.

If you have found that your hair lacks volume, it is likely that you have tried multiple ways to boost your hair’s volume. At MyCuts, we know that finding the best way to boost your hair’s volume can be a complicated process. Luckily, there are a few easy ways you can make your hair more voluminous and MyCuts is here to share those with you today! Let’s get started.

Experiment With a Different Part

Believe it or not, one of the easiest ways to boost your hair’s volume doesn’t involve the use of hair products or tools! In fact, all you have to do is experiment with a different parting style. If you have been parting your hair the same way for years, you can actually add an extra boost to your hair’s volume simply by forcing your hair to part a different way.

When you style your hair in the same part for years, you are actually training your hair to lie flat in a certain way. By either switching your part to the opposite side or straight down the middle, you can add an extra boost of volume that your previous way of styling didn’t allow for. Get an extra boost of volume today by experimenting with a different part!

Add Some Layers

Another easy way to add a little bit of volume to your everyday look is by adding in some layers. Simply book an appointment with your local hair stylist and ask them to give you a fresh new look that involves layering. Careful though- adding layers that are too short or adding too many layers can leave you with a less than attractive look. Your hairstylist will know how to give you the right amount of layers at a length that suits you while boosting your hair’s natural volume!

Switch Up Your Hair-Drying Routine

Here’s another easy DIY way to liven up your hair. While many of us are used to hair-drying in an upright method, switching up your hair-drying routine by letting your locks hang upside down can actually boost volume. This method of blow-drying naturally pulls your hair away from the head as it dries, adding volume.

Many professional hairstylists also recommend blasting your entire head with cool air once your hair is done drying as this creates even more fullness. Try switching up your hair-drying routine the next time you shower. We are willing to bet that you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results!

Avoid Straightening

While a straight look suits many people, it doesn’t necessarily suit everyone. Some of us look much better with some added volume and fullness. If you find yourself in that group, you’ll want to avoid straightening your hair as much as possible. Instead, embrace your natural wavy hair or curls!

If you favor straight hair but want to add a little extra volume, however, you may want to consider hair extensions. Along with adding extra length, hair extensions are also a great way to introduce a little extra volume in a way that looks natural yet elegant.

Don’t Wash Daily

Finally, the fifth way that MyCuts recommends boosting your hair’s volume is by avoiding a daily wash. Believe it or not, shampooing everyday is actually bad for your hair. In fact, it can strip your hair of all of its natural oils, damaging it and eliminating any chance for healthy, full-looking hair.

When you let your hair go two or three days between washes, for example, your hair’s natural oils are allowed to come out and this is the perfect time to practice some of your favorite full-bodied, wavy styles. Your hair becomes especially voluminous when you allow its natural oils to come out so give it a try
