How I Add Volume To My Hair

How I Add Volume To My Hair

It’s no secret that I like volume when it comes to my hair. I blame it on being a teenager in the 80s! Thankfully I have left the curly permed hair behind!

I’ve recently found a product that I like as well as the Aquage Uplifting Foam. It’s Aveda Volumizing Tonic and it does a great job of adding volume to my hair.

I like the smell, and the way it feels in my hair. It doesn’t leave any sticky residue and works great on fine to medium hair.

Here’s what I do:

  • I blow dry my hair a little bit first and then I add the Volumizing Tonic.¬†
  • I lift sections of my hair near the crown and spray Volumizing Tonic to the scalp area.
  • Then I use a round brush, blow dryer and hands to enhance the volume.

It’s not easy to take pictures of the back of your hair but I tried!

This product can be found at a lot of salons so it should be easy to find. If you like a little volume you might want to give it a try!

Do you have a favorite hair product? Have you tried Aveda Volumizing Tonic?

    Hi Cyndi, I have just the opposite problem. My hair is so think and voluminous (not in a good way) that I have to have it seriously thinned out every 3 months. I do have an Aveda product that I cannot live without. It is their Brilliantine non-humectant styling gel. Since my hair is so thick, it does best when I wear very short with bangs. I use the Brilliantine when I finish styling just to add some shine, hold down the volume and to piece out my bangs. Your hair is so pretty, I would be all thumbs trying to style my hair like yours, especially the back. You have an excellent haircut! (I should have known) :-)

    Thanks for the tip. My hair is so thin that I am sensitive to and always notice other peoples hair! In fact, your nice thick hair is what I appreciated the most the first time I saw your fun blog. I plan to dash right out and try this product tomorrow!
