If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I’m always on the hunt for more volume for my hair. It is truly my life mission (okay that may be dramatic, but you get the idea). Over the years, I’ve tried a LOT of different ways to get more volume. Some have worked really well and I still use them today, while others may have worked for a specific haircut I had but don’t work as well today.
So I thought it was time to write an updated post on what I’m doing now to get more volume in my hair. These are the products I’m currently using to give my hair that va-va-voom look I love.
Agenda Root Boosting Foam
The love of all things hair and volume is what drove me to start my own hair care line called Agenda. You can read all about Agenda here, but basically, it’s a simple line of hair care products that were designed specifically to give you smooth hair with lots of volume.
That’s why our fan-favorite root boosting foam, Big Plans Ahead, is at the top of my list of musts if you’re looking for more volume. This stuff is GOOD, y’all. It’s actually sold out at the moment, but we should be getting more in soon, so now’s a great time to pre-order yours. I put a few pumps of this in my hair when it’s wet (before I blow it dry) and love how it boosts my roots and adds texture and body to my hair. Ps – the secret to this foam is that we add just a little sugar to help give that extra boost.
Olivia Garden Ceramic Brush
Whether I wash and dry my hair at night or in the morning, this round brush is a necessity. This and my root boosting foam are truly what gives me all my volume. I’m so convinced that the way you round-brush your hair can make or break your final results that I wrote an entire blog post with tips for round-brushing your hair. I use the Olivia Garden 2 1/8 in. round brush myself but the size will vary depending on the length, thickness, and style of your hair.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo
I definitely don’t wash my hair every day. In fact, I try to go at least three days, depending on how much I sweat during my workouts. But dry shampoo is my saving grace when it comes to getting and keeping volume in my hair for more than a day. I’ve talked before about how to use dry shampoo to get lots of volume, but there’s a very specific process I follow that has worked for me for years now. This post also includes a fun video tutorial if you’re more of a visual person like I am!
Y’all know I love my Dyson Airwrap. I actually just posted a full review of the Dyson Airwrap on the blog, and I’ve got a video tutorial of how I use the Airwrap in my Hair highlights on Instagram. The Airwrap is definitely a splurge, but it’s been a game-changer for me in terms of hair volume. I’ll admit that it took me a week or so to really get it down but as soon as I figured out how to use it the right way, I was instantly hooked. I love the final results this tool gives me whether I’m just blow drying my hair or curling it!
Jumbo Hair Curlers
Okay y’all love these curlers as much as I do and for good reason. They’re only $15 on Amazon and they make a HUGE difference in how my hair turns out after I style it. I wrote a full post on how I use velcro rollers for volume here to help you understand the ways I usually use them. Since I got the Dyson Airwrap, I’ve actually been using both and am obsessed with the volume I see. I’ve used these jumbo curlers when I had short hair and now with longer hair and they honestly work great for both lengths!
The most important thing to remember when trying to get more volume for your hair is that anyone can have great hair — it’s just about using the right products and styling techniques. Be sure to check out some of the blog posts below for specific tutorials and details on how I use all of these products to help boost my roots and get that volume I love!
