I find that getting volume is a b*tch w/ my hair. A lot of it depends on the length of your hair (the heavier your hair, the less potential volume there is), and the type of hair you have.

For the longest time I wore my hair long... I had long, thick, blonde hair - there was nothing I could do for volume. I got it cut a few months back, and I get a little bit of a bounce - but other than that, I'm basically screwed (to be quite frank) with the hair I have.

Okay.. just one more piece of advice.

Try using less conditioner.. sometimes, it's as simple as that.

You probably love having long hair (I sure do!), but getting a cut/trim makes a big difference, as mentioned before. I just got my hair cut 1 - 2 inches all over, and although I notice a slight difference in length, I also noticed a HUGE improvement in volume. So in a way, I sacrificed length for volume... I don't know if this could apply to you, but that's what worked for me. (Also, using a volumizing shampoo adds a bit of lift, too).

Thanks for all the suggestions on products, but how do you backcomb/tease? I straighten my hair every day but i really like the backcombed and sort of messy-sexy-piece-y look. Any suggestions or pictures? I'll try to find one in the mean time to show you what I mean..

Big hair?
What are some good hair products for getting big, volumous hair... and I mean big, like all those scene kids? And preferable something not too damaging. I'm planning on cutting my hair pretty short and I want to do some fun stuff with it.

Looking for a new Root Volumizer/Lift...Pls Help!
Hello All

I am always in search of a great volumizer (for pre-blow outs). I have alot of hair, it is medium-long but not thick hair. I prefer to only wash my hair every two days. My trouble seems to be with gel products as I find it difficult to go two days between washes without looking greasy at my roots. What are your favorite root lifters... brand, spray or mousse? I will back comb at my roots if needed however prefer not too everyday. Lastly, do volumizing shampoos/conditioners really work or just weigh down hair?

Looking forward to hearing back from all of my lovely root-inspiring friends

Ciao Bella!
