Thick, fine, short, long – let’s face it, we all want a bit more oomph in our hair. The sign of a good, glamorous blow-dry and healthy hair, we’ve rounded up the latest products that will help swell your style to new heights.
Bumble and bumble Surf Foam Wash Shampoo, £18.50 and Conditioner, £20, follows on from the cult Surf Spray that creates texture in the flattest hair! Full of sea fennel and kelp that remove impurities and fatten hair from root to tip, expect a gorgeous beachy blow-out.
Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Root Lift Backcomb Powder, £5.99, amps up your hair where it really needs it – at the root. Simply sprinkle in the dust on dry roots, not forgetting the back of your head, and rub with your fingertips to stimulate its super-sizing powers!
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Fine to Full Blow-Out Spray, £6.99, is your salon blow-dry in a bottle. Full of heat-activated ingredients that plump your hair from root to tip, the full and flicky results last for at least two days.
KentSalon Curved Vent brush, £20, kentbrushes.com, is a one-of-its-kind brush that mirrors the curved shape of your head allowing you to lift hair right from the root so you get an extra chance to give hair a hit of volume. The row of natural boar bristles means hair stays shiny too.
L’Oreal Professionnel SOS Volume Powder Spray, £9.80, tackles oil build-up at the root – something that fine hair is more prone too and one reason behind that lack of natural lift. With salicylic acid to de-grease, it injects hair with an airy blast of volume that actually lasts.
Nicky Clarke Frizz Control Smooth & Shine Hot Air Styler, £34.99, gives hair body like the pros thanks to its natural bristles that stop any breakage and ionic technology that neutralises any static for smooth, sexy results.
Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo, £14.85 and Conditioner, £17.85, doesn’t strip your hair of its natural volume (however much or little of it you have!) or colour (which some volumising shampoos do) and creates the perfect base for the body building legwork you put in afterwards.
Toni&Guy Glamour Volume Plumping Whip, £7.19, should be worked from root to tip on towel-dried hair to give locks extra bounce. Lovely and lightweight, you only need a walnut size blob to get your fair share of volume.
UNITE Scruncha Gel, £16.85, magically transforms from a gel to a mousse when you apply it to wet hair. Fab for creating texture, it gives curly hair some well-structured guts too, stopping it from midday drooping!
