How to get Big Volume
There’s something about big, voluminous hair that is just naturally sexy. It’s no wonder that every girl wants more of it, but sometimes it’s hard to achieve. However, we’ve uncovered some secrets of the trade that will no doubt give you that big volume you desire:
Wash your hair
- If you’ve collected too much product in your hair it will start to go limp. A general rule of thumb is to wash your hair every 2 days. If you wash your hair daily, it will dry out BUT if you wait too long, it will begin collecting weight with the accumulated oils and dirt. It’s about maintaining balance!
Add some layers
- When your hair gets longer it gets heavier as well. The best way to achieve both length AND volume is to add layers to your hair. These varying lengths throughout your tresses not only look beautiful, but they add that extra bounce you wouldn’t get with a uniform length throughout.
Blow-dry your hair upside down
- After you shower, squeeze out as much water as you can and then brush out your hair using your Leyla Milani Hair “Miracle Brush”. This is designed to smooth and detangle without pulling, while banishing those pesky fly-aways. Next, you’ll want to flip your head over and dry your hair in this position until your roots are finished. This will add much more volume than if you were to be standing straight!
Use a volumizing powder
- Adding the Leyla Milani “Big Hair Don’t Care Volume Boosting Powder” to your roots once styled, is a great way to add some major lift. All you need to do is sprinkle this lightweight ‘fairy dust’ in your hair and using your fingers simply scrunch and move it throughout, OR apply directly to your roots and tease for an even bigger effect. And the best part? Toss it in your bag and apply as often as needed throughout the day for an instant refresher!
Clip the crown of your hair
- If you have some time to let your hair set, grab a wide-toothed “jaw clip” (which won't cause any kinking) and simply secure, lifting the crown portion of your hair. Let your hair sit in this lifted position and it will retain volume once you let it down.
Wear hair extensions
- More hair= more volume! By adding a few layers of your Leyla Milani Clip-in Hair Extensions, not only can you achieve more length, but more volume in an instant. Many girls with long hair also have hair extensions for this reason. What’s great about it is that they only take minutes to clip-in and now you have all this extra beautiful hair to flaunt!
