2. Dry with a suitable towel and use a serum
Your post-shower mop is at its most vulnerable, which means you should never ride roughshod by rubbing it dry. A bath towel’s fuzzy fibres are superb for sloughing dead skin off your face and body, but the friction created by those very same fibres can result in frizz and split ends. The solution to your towel trouble? Pat gently with a clean cotton tee instead, and follow up with a follicle-fortifying serum from the midshaft down – we’ll recommend Kerastase’s Densifique Hair Youth Serum, $110 – for a buoyant bounce with none of the unwieldy weight. Simply spritz on damp hair, starting mid-length and paying extra care to the ends for easier styling!
3. Use a hair thickening cream or spray
To thicken and add volume to fine hair, use a thickening cream for longer-lasting body. This widely-reviewed and raved hair product from Living Proof contains a patented thickening molecule (PBAE), which creates thickening dots between hair strands so it feels like you have thicker hair. We like that it gives a light hold so there is some defense against the humidity here.
This formula is also color-safe and safe for chemically-treated hair.
4. Use a volumising heat protectant
Before you blow dry your hair, don’t forget to apply a heat protectant to protect your hair from the heat. This heat protectant from Ouai is a multi-tasker that adds heat protection, shine, and long-lasting memory to any look—curls and blowouts included. What it does is it memorizes the hair the hair style and extends it till the next wash. Volume for days? Yes, please!
5. Blast your roots
When using the hairdryer to blow dry your hair, make sure to aim the nozzle at the base of your hair roots. For maximum volume, tip your head down and direct the heat upwards from the roots.
