Week Of Hair Help: Volumizing Fine Hair (For Under $5)
October 8, 2008
I’ve always kind of thought volumizing shampoos and conditioners were lying to me. True, they tend not to weigh down my fine hair, but neither does most shampoo. I much prefer to add volume with post-shower tactics. Here are two of my favorites:
For everyday: Sunsilk Daring Volume Volumizing Spray ($4) is fabulous for slightly-bigger-than-your-normal-hair volume. It’s not daring (unless you’re a volume ultraconservative), but it leaves hair with enough bounce that it doesn’t look pasted to the side of my head.
For tousled style: When I’m trying to make my hair “curly” – which on me ranges from slightly wavy to not-quite-straight – Garnier Fructis Style XXL Volume Thickening Mousse ($4) works great. A palmfull worked through my shoulder-length hair is enough to keep it tousled-looking rather than flat.
