The only downside to big hair is actually achieving it in a gorgeous, voluminous way. If you love big hair but you struggle styling it and actually get the big hair, we’re sharing some of our favorite tips to help you get big hair anytime you want.
Don’t Overdo It with Products
Since you’re trying to get big hair, you want to avoid your hair being weighed down too much by anything, product included. So be light handed when applying hair product to your hair, and if possible use products that are naturally lightweight so you’re avoiding adding too much weight to your hair. This doesn’t mean you’re going to want to avoid using product altogether, though. In fact, there are some great products that can help you get the big hair you want. Products like mousse and other items are even made with specific formulas to help give you a little added volume.
Dry Your Hair Strategically
If you’re more of an air drying type of girl, get a little added volume by using a claw clip to poof up your roots and the front of your hair while it air dries. If you like using a hairdryer make sure that you don’t dry your hair straight down or pull your hair down too much while drying it. Additionally, another way to get a little extra volume boost is to flip your hair upside down and dry your hair that way. It will give you an extra little boost while you’re drying your hair.
Don’t Brush Too Much
One of the easiest and quickest ways to flatten out your hair from volume is to brush it, so avoid brushing too much while your hair is drying. Most experts suggest not brushing your hair at all when it’s wet and you’re trying to achieve big hair. Many say that using your hands and fingers to dry your hair with a hairdryer is best, and waiting until your hair has cooled off after drying before you actually use a brush.
Emphasize the Roots
Big hair is really accomplished by focusing on the roots of your hair. There are a few ways to really get an extra boost of volume at the roots. Using rollers at the roots or large curling irons are two really common and easy ways to get an extra volume boost. So basically, use whichever one you’re more comfortable with.
Set it in Place
Finally, you’ve gone through all the work to get the volume in your hair so you’re certainly going to want to keep it that way. Using hairspray and dry shampoo are the most popular, and according to expert’s best, products to keep your volume and big hair in place.
