If you’re a straight hair girl, or your hair is only slightly wavy towards the end, you probably wish you had more volume. One of the most common complaints of women with Type 1 and Type 2 curl types   is that their hair hangs limp and struggles to hold styles. You probably look at the bounce and weightlessness of an afro with envy.

You could get an old school perm to at least try to replicate the intense, tightly-wound curls that stand on their own. Probably though, what you’re really craving is the volume associated with a perfect fro.

A good first step to make your dream of lasting volume a reality is to invest in professional products specially designed to pump up the appearance of flat, typically fine hair. One example is the Volumetry range from L’Oréal Professionnel. The star ingredient in Volumetry formulations is Intra-Cylane™, a molecule that penetrates inside hair fibres, thickening and restructuring them so there’s a stronger, flexible framework to support strands. Hair looks lifted from the roots, hydrated and extremely shiny.

When you complete the full volume-boosting treatment step by step with Volumetry products, you can enjoy a maximised gravity-defying look for 72 hours.

Another option to give your hair a volume boost is Biolage VolumeBloom, from Matrix. You can follow a full system of Shampoo, Conditioner and Full Lift Volumiser Spray to enjoy up to 70% more volume – after just one application. Inspired by the expanding cotton flower, VolumeBloom’s plumping action is a winner for fine hair, adding lightweight bounce and irresistible vibrancy.

Volumetry and VolumeBloom are professional product lines used by stylists, so you can only find them at salons. When you head to a salon, talk to an expert and they’ll be able to guide your home usage for maximum effectiveness.
