May 4, 2023

Have you ever wished for voluminous and bouncy hair, only to be disappointed with your limp and lifeless short hair?

While short hair can be stylish and low-maintenance, achieving volume can sometimes be a challenge. But fear not, because there are simple and easy ways to add more volume and texture to your short hair.

In this article, we’ll share five tips to help you get more volume for short hair. Whether you’re getting ready for a night out or just want to switch up your everyday style, these tips will give your hair the lift it deserves. So, let’s get started!

1. Use a Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

Using the right shampoo and conditioner can make a big difference in the volume of your hair. Volumizing products, such as those in our New York line, are specifically designed to add texture and body to your hair, making it look fuller and thicker. These products work by coating the hair shaft, which makes the hair appear more voluminous.

When selecting a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, look for products that are designed for your hair type. For example, if you have fine hair, look for lightweight products that won’t weigh down your hair. If you have thick hair, look for products that are designed to add volume without making your hair feel heavy.

To use the products, wet your hair thoroughly and apply a small amount of shampoo to the roots. Massage the shampoo into your scalp and hair, working it into a lather. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Follow with a volumizing conditioner, which should be applied to the ends of your hair and rinsed out thoroughly after a few minutes.

2. Use a Volumizing Spray 

Using a volumizing spray is an excellent way to volumize short hair, especially if your hair is particularly fine or thin.

These hair products can help add volume, texture, and fullness to your hair. Typically used on damp or dry hair, a volumizing spray works by providing a slight hold to your hair while also adding body and lift at the roots.

Volumizing sprays often contain ingredients such as panthenol, which helps strengthen your hair to prevent breakage. Other key ingredients such as pro-vitamin B5, rice protein, ivy, and root extracts can add extra body while providing protection against heat and humidity.

To use a volumizing spray on dry hair, spray a few times all over to add texture and revitalize limp curls.

On damp hair, focus on applying the spray to the roots. Then, use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the product evenly. To enhance curls, blow dry or scrunch dry your hair after applying the spray.

3. Blow Dry Your Hair Upside Down 

Blow-drying your hair upside down is an effective way to create lift and volume at the roots, giving your hair a fuller appearance. This technique works by directing the heat and airflow of your blow dryer toward the roots of your hair, lifting them up and away from your scalp.

To blow dry your hair upside down, start by flipping your head over so that your hair hangs down towards the floor. Use a towel to remove any excess water, then apply a heat protectant spray to your hair. Next, use a round brush to lift sections of hair at the roots and direct airflow from the dryer towards the hair while brushing through the entire length. Repeat this process until your hair is completely dry.

As an extra suggestion, adding layers to your haircut can be a great way to create movement and dimension in your hair while adding the appearance of more volume. When you have layers in your hair, the shorter sections on top create volume and help lift the hair away from your scalp, while the longer layers at the bottom create depth and dimension.
