We narrowed down the most effective hair care tips, tricks and the best products no matter how flat your hair is. You can try them all to know which one works best for you. Let’s pump up the volume of your flat and lifeless hair!
1. Avoid overwashing your hair
Washing your hair daily with shampoo will strip them of essential oils needed to maintain
its healthy form.
2. Choose the right shampoo
When you shower, try to use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. This shampoo has lightweight polymers-agents which limit product buildup that causes the hair to weigh down.
3. Use baking soda
Make it a habit to wash your hair with a baking soda mixture at least once a week.
For the mixture, add 3 parts water and 1 part baking soda. Leave it on your hair
for at least 15-20 minutes depending on the length. Then you can rinse it off after.
Applying this method will help your flat hair have that volume and bounce.
4. Dry hair upside down
Dry your hair upside down to lift them away from the scalp. Then spritz with a light hairspray and flip your head over again.
5. Scrunch your hair
You can choose to scrunch your hair and let it air dry. Mix three teaspoons of sea salt and 1 cup water in a spray bottle. Spray into your hair then scrunch!
6. Switch up your part
Switch which way you part your hair for an instant lift. Don’t let your hair get used to the same old part. Switching the part of your hair will keep the roots on toes and lift them up.
7. Get a layered cut
You can choose to get a layered cut whether you have long or short hair. This add instant volume to your hair without any daily maintenance.
For fine hair, choose soft layers at the chin. For medium to thick hair, go for choppy layers throughout.
8. When blow drying hair
Use a round brush then wrap the roots of your hair to keep them lifted. You don’t need to add any hair products to your hair after.
