For a lot of us, flat hair is a massive problem. It could be that your hair is finer or maybe it’s just a reaction against the weather. Whatever it is though, limp hair isn’t ever any fun.
While you can use every product under the sun labelled ‘volume’, it’s probably not going to work if you’re not using them the right way or in the right order. We also understand that everyone’s hair is different as well but there are some products that can give you a little added boost.
So we thought we’d round up our favourite four product lineup that can give you a fighting chance for that elusive, effortless volume look.
Kerastase Densifique Bain Densite Shampoo - for hair wash day
We believe that good hair starts on hair wash day. We know that it’s a chore for some of you but we promise it’s because you don’t have the right shampoo. Kerastase is an industry leader in good hair and their Densifique Bain Densite (a shampoo) will change your hair from the inside out. Featuring Stemoxydine which can mimic the optimal environment for stem cells and help with hair density as well as hyaluronic acid to hydrate and plump - your hair is in for a good time.
You should aim to use it 2-3 times a week, and we’re going to put it out there that you probably need to be washing your hair every if you suffer from oily hair. Oily, unwashed hair that isn’t looked after can really weigh down your hair and affect volume levels.
Evo Haze - for a midday touch up
This is genuinely the product that will save any flat haired gal’s life. The Evo Haze - now with a handy spray nozzle - is a styling powder, but it’s also so much more than that! It’s body, texture and All you need to do is spray it into dry hair and give it a little massage with your fingers. We like applying it in our roots for that volume touch up during the day.
It’ll last all day as well! Just before you leave work for drinks on a Friday, simply use your fingers to rub where you’ve applied Haze to reactivate the product and create more texture. Genius!
O&M Atonic Thickening Spritz - for pre-heat styling
If you style your hair, this Atonic Thickening Spritz will help with volume because it doesn’t weigh your hair down like many other products do. It has Australian Lilly Pilly, an antioxidant that helps thicken your hair shafts, automatically creating more body and giving you that effortless volume look. It also protects your hair from heat - which is also a plus - and provides medium hold for your styling convenience!
Evo Water Killer - for between washes and styling
If you asked us how much we loved Water Killer Dry Shampoo on a scale of 1 to 10, it’d probably be close to a 12. Seriously, not only is it a great dry shampoo, it’s also a really, really good texturising spray. So in between using your new Kerastase Densite Shampoo, give your roots a spray of the good stuff to soak up the oil but also give it some body. It you curl your hair, give the ends a spray as well to thicken it out. Seriously amazing stuff.
