    Hair Hacks to Voluminous Hair

    Everybody has had days when they have had to cancel going out just because of dull and lifeless hair. Hair that lies flat and has greasy roots can indeed be a problem for your self-confidence. In such emergency situations, no amount of volumizing spray or shampoo seems to work. It’s true—volume starts at the root. And it really does matter what treatment you work on your scalp. Here’s some hair hacks to volumizing your hair instantly.

    Using sunglasses as headband

    Headbands have been a hairstyle for centuries, so it’s hard to call them a trend. Their appeal is that they work on all hair types; no one can really mess the look up. With a little bit of creativity and styling, you can improvise your sunglasses as your headband as well.  Tips on the quick hack: Pull the front section to the back with your sunglass, and then push forward and loosen it a little. Let your hair stay in this position until drying and see the volume for yourself.

    Flat-ironing differently

    The common way of flat ironing actually takes away the volume of your hair. For extra oomph, after you have blow-dried, hold sections of the hair firmly, and run the flat iron in an upward motion over the strands. The upward motion instead of the more commonly preferred downward one provides volume instantly.  It also creates soft, natural volume at the roots and is perfect for revamping your style in between shampoos.

    Changing parting style

    Switching the parting of your hair is one of the best ways to impart instant bounce to your hair. You could be used to parting your hair on one side only hence after years of alignment, it may cause your hair to be flat and limp. By parting it deep towards the opposite side, this will give you a brand new look for the day.

    baking soda and a glass of water

    Using baking soda

    You might have never guessed baking soda could be used as a volumizer but it is an excellent volumizer. Baking soda is a good alternative to clarifying shampoo and it efficiently removes any build-up in your scalp. Sprinkle a little into the parting and on any other area and distribute it evenly throughout the scalp. You can even mix it with water and spray the solution on to the hair using a spray bottle. Follow up with blow-drying in the opposite direction & Voilà!

    ADV Nutrition Conditioner for all hair types

    Applying conditioner on the ends

    The right use of the conditioner goes a long way in achieving perfect hair. Do not use too much of it at the roots. This not only leads to product build-up, but weighs your hair down, taking away the volume. Instead, apply it only at the hair ends. In case of knots, follow conditioning with shampooing so all residues are washed off. Remember to only use a brush with soft bristles after your wash.
