I have naturally kind of curly, kind of straight, kind of fine, kind of frizzy hair (lucky me) that has a tendency to go flat, so I'm always on the lookout for products that bring volume and bounce to my locks or DIY techniques that add body. The only thing I really steer clear of are products that makes my hair feel gritty or crispy and any DIY techniques that seem too difficult. DIY hair rollers made from ribbons? I'll pass.
If you're looking to give your hair a little more oomph but don't want to add another 30 minutes to your hair routine, here are the top fixes I've found:
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish Spray. Wow, long name but a great product if you want easy volume. It's not a dry shampoo or a hairspray, so while it won't lock in or refresh your hair it will give lots of volume with just a few sprays. For those with straight locks, style your hair as normal and then for maximum volume, lift the top sections of your hair and spray. For curly hair, style as normal and then spray this from below, almost at an angle into your curls so that when the product is dispersed it pushes your curls upwards and out. The only con of this product is that is does have a fairly strong scent to it, but luckily I find that it fades after about 10 minutes.
DIY trick: Leave your hair in a wet bun till it dries.
