A Quick Volume Boost
If your main goal when you style is to increase volume and make your hair appear fuller, volumizing sprays are the ideal addition to your hair care
regimen. Sprays are simple to apply and can greatly enhance body with their lightweight formulas. People with fine or thin hair typically find sprays to be extra beneficial because they do not weigh down the strands the way that other types of styling aids can.
Formulas for Volume Plus Hold
To enhance volume and make your hair less likely to move out of place during the day, you can use a volumizing styling aid with hold. Mousses and foams are light, airy products that add body, improve manageability and provide light to medium hold. For stronger hold, you can use a volumizing styling gel prior to styling. After you have finished styling, you can spray on a volumizing hair spray to set your style and give your hair's natural body a boost.
Some styles require added texture rather than volume to look their best, and there are many kinds of styling aids available to help. Pomades
contain blends of waxes and oils that enhance texture and make it easier to create slick, smooth styles with a comb. Waxes and pastes help hairs stick together for greater definition, while clays and putties thicken and texturize. Pomades, waxes, pastes, putties and clays are available with different levels of hold to increase your style's staying power.
You can also find texturizing sprays and lotions that increase texture without providing hold benefits. The product names and descriptions can help you find the volumizing or texturizing styling product that is best suited to your styling needs. back to top »
