Many people would love to have hair that falls down perfectly in thick gorgeous locks. Nothing says beauty like a thick head of hair like something straight out of a shampoo commercial. Unfortunately, however, often times the way hair looks on television isn’t exactly how it looks in the mirror.
If you want to be able to achieve that perfect commercial perfect hair then you will have to adapt some of the secrets of the pros. Here is how they do it.
If your hair is lifeless and flat, then no amount of products is going to get you all the way to that voluminous look that you want. Sometimes the only thing to do is to add extra hair. Hair extensions are the answer to adding extra body and length while still maintaining a natural look unlike wearing a full wig.
You can use hair extensions which you can clip in or out on daily basis as you like, or you can go to a professional for a full set of extensions which last you several months. Each has its pro’s and cons. The clip in extensions are more affordable and convenient with less commitment. However, the semi-permanent extensions look much more natural and require no daily maintenance or application.
Dry shampoo adds an extra boost of life to your roots by giving it a starchy lift. If you use dry shampoo throughout the day then your hair will stay more voluminous for a longer period of time.
Dry shampoo is especially helpful for people who have bangs since bangs can tend to pick up on your foreheads oil as the day progresses and cause your bangs to fall flat. Make sure to always apply dry shampoo only at the roots as this is where it is most needed.
Using some kind of a volumizing product on your hair at the roots before blow drying is going to give your hair much more volume than if dried with no product. Many volumizing products are heat activated so make sure that you apply the volumizer and add some heat protectant before you blast away with your hairdryer.
At the end of your blowout, try flipping your hair upside down and giving a few additional spritzes of your volumizer or hairspray for a finishing volume-filled touch.
Wash Your Hair Less Often
It may seem counter intuitive but the less you wash your hair the less oil your hair will produce and less flat and lifeless.
Experts recommend washing your hair every 2-3 days and even less if you think you can swing it. After a few weeks of this, you will find that your hair has a whole new breath of life in it.
