Do you wish your hair had more body and volume? Would you like a non-toxic product that will give you that coveted volume? Of course you do! Volume is something we hear requests for, here at re•form, all the time. Limp hair or lack of volume is something most of us battle at one time or another. The good news is that there’s a remedy. Well let’s address this issue and turn up the volume!
WHAT CAUSES LIMP HAIR?
If you have limp hair, you probably have fine hair, and that’s just fine. All that means is that the diameter of each of your individual hairs is thin (not the same as thinning hair!) People with fine hair actually have more hairs per square centimeter than other hair types. Each hair takes up less space so there is room for more of them.
The only downside is that more individual hairs means more oil glands since each hair has its own gland. So the more hairs you have, the more oil your scalp produces and in a smaller area. The result? Lack of body, volume and bounce. However, lack of volume isn’t exclusive to fine hair, all hair textures can lack body and volume if you use the wrong products, or use them incorrectly.
WAYS TO GET BODY, VOLUME AND BOUNCE
Use a volume building shampoo of course!! We suggest our re-form Volume Shampoo and Conditioner which are both infused with ingredients to add extra thickness, and strength giving hair that build body like a personal trainer!.
No this isn’t a Netflix original! We’re totally serious. You’ll be amazed how much extra body and bounce this gives you. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual. Apply a styling aid of your choice (re-form Wave Spray Link) and begin to dry your hair. When damp, flip your hair over and use the dryer with your hair hanging forward. Gently brush and comb your hair in this direction, following behind with the hairdryer. Pay particular attention to the roots. When your hair is dry, style as normal.
CUT YOUR HAIR
We’re not suggesting chopping your locks, but we did feel the need to recognize that shorter hair gives you instant body, because it weighs less. If you have very thick hair, you can get a similar result if you layer your hair, just be careful layering fine, color-treated or damaged hair textures prone to split ends.
Putting conditioner directly on or close to your scalp can weigh your hair down. Apply conditioner to your mid-lengths and ends, not your roots.
RINSE SHAMPOO SUFFICIENTLY
We’re sure you know this one, but it’s worth repeating. Take your time when you rinse out shampoo. If you think you’ve rinsed enough, rinse again! Even a thin coating of shampoo left on your hair can leave it dull and limp.
Now get out there and pump up the volume!
