A relatively new product on the hair scene, volumising powder is an absolute game-changer. It works in a similar way to dry shampoo, in that it absorbs excess oil, but also works to give grip, volume and a matte texture (for all hair types, but particularly) to fine or straight hair. Top tip: use it to boost volume and increase grip before styling your hair into an updo. bh loves: Bumble and bumble Prêt-à-Powder (find it at mecca.com.au), Schwarzkopf Extra Care Push Up Volume Powder and IGK 30,000 Feet Volume Hair Powder (find it at sephora.com.au)
A mousse is more lightweight than a volumising spray. As a result, it is best for medium to fine hair types that usually become weighed down with product build up. If frizz is often a problem, a mousse can help control frizz while giving your hair body and lift. Top tip: not all mousse is created equal - choose wisely to avoid adding the dreaded crunch to your hair. bh loves: Moroccanoil Volumizing Mousse, Drybar Southern Belle Volume-Boosting Mousse (find it at sephora.com.au) and Kérastase Paris Mousse Bouffante
A spray would be the best option for curly hair, as it can often be the heaviest type of volumising product. It can help increase volume, shine and overall feel of unruly hair. bh loves: Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast (find it at mecca.com.au), ghd Root Lift Spray and Ouai Volume Spray (find it at sephora.com.au)
Volumising Shampoo and Conditioner
If using extra products isn't your cup of tea, volumising shampoo and conditioner sets often do a dang good job by themselves. bh loves: L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Shampoo and Conditioner and TRESemme Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Pre-Wash Conditioner and Reverse System Shampoo (find it at priceline.com.au)
Topical volumising treatments
While creating volume is often by need of fine or flat hair, often the want for volume stems from hair loss issues. A topical treatment could contribute to thicker and more voluminous hair. bh loves: evolis Topical Hair Loss Treatment .
