Creating Volume

One of my main hair concerns has always been volume; I'm cursed with limp, flat locks that almost make me shed a tear everytime I see someone with thick hair walking past. I jest, it's not that bad, but it certainly doesn't make me happy having to spend ages trying to perfect subtley backcombing every morning. So there's a few new products in my life that mean I can put down the brush and leave the house with healthy, thick looking hair.

My latest buy which you might have spotted in my previous couple of posts is the Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam. Note, this is a foam, not a mousse. You're not supposed to shake it up, and you can apply to any areas of the hair you'd like. I usually just apply to the roots, just in case I go a bit overboard. You only need to apply a tiny amount to separate areas of roots, and after blow-drying my hair looks completely different. It gives such fantastic volume without leaving my hair feeling weighed down or loaded with product. I've used this with every wash since buying, and I can see this being a favourite for a very long time.

I talk about the Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray quite regularly, and I have been pairing this with the Aveda product. It's a good way to add some volume to the lengths of my hair as well as the roots, and also has a beautiful scent that I absolutely love. I'm surprised how much of this I still have left, a little seems to go such a long way. And if I need to add a bit extra, perhaps on second day hair, my go to is the Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray, which again I think I've talked to death on here. After a quick curl, I spray this through the lengths and roots of my hair, volume and bounce magically appear, and sticks around too, I don't find myself needing to top up with this throughout the day at all which is perfect.

Do you have any favourite products for creating volume?

  1. I wish there would be a thickening spray/mousse whatever which did not require blow drying and instaed air drying or just drying on its own and no action from any tool! That would be heaven for me! :P


  2. I love the texturising spray, one product that's definitely worth all the hype! xo
