Volume Vampers

I wrote a little while ago about my mission to make more effort with my hair. In terms of looking after my locks I wouldn't say I'm doing too badly (although I am guilty of leaving a little longer than recommended between trims...oops!), but when it came to styling I just wasn't putting in much effort, being more of a 'just let it do it's own thing' kinda girl. But I committed to making a little extra effort in the hair department with my first port of call being volume.

With fairly long (still haven't built up the courage to go for a big chop), fine hair, volume isn't something that comes naturally for me. Cue volume vampers. Starting off post wash, pre blow dry I like a few spritz' of a volume-boosting, texture-giving spray. My fav of the moment is John Freida's Root Booster Blow Dry Lotion mainly for the simply fact that no matter how much of this stuff I spray on, it remains undetectable in my hair- no crispy locks here. I love the little nozzle on this thing, I simply bury it in to the roots around my crown and spritz. 4-5 spritz' around the crown seems to do the trick with a spray or two from a bit further back just incase. A quick massage in and blow dry as per usual (read: upside down) for lifted roots, volumised locks and a little extra hold.

A not so spritz-heavy friendly spray is Healthy Sexy Hair's Soy Renewal Beach Spray. Now strictly speaking this is more of a texturising spritz for the lengths of your hair but a little at the roots still manages to oomph things up a little. No matter how little of this stuff I spray it's still fairly evident in my hair- things just seem to be a little grittier. Perfect for extended hold and hair that won't fall flat but not so nice to touch.

My final volume vamper usually comes in to play for second day hair when things are looking a little limp and slightly on the oily side. Dry shampoo is a busy girl's saviour but also acts as a great volume enhancer. A little dry shampoo of your choice, pictured here is John Freida's Anytime Volume Refresher, spritzed around the roots and rubbed in helps freshen things up a little and adds volume to flat hair. A handbag staple for volume seekers if there ever was one.

    need to get my hands on some of the John Freida Blow Dry Lotion! By the sounds of things our hair is pretty similar, long but fine and mine goes flat all the time! This hot weather isn't helping either :(
