When it comes to volume, I tend to remember the days of crunchy bumped roots that gave you a stiff fullness.

With technology these days, shampoos are volumizing from root to end.

Kevin Murphy Plumping Wash

Buy on Amazon

With ingredients like Extracts of Ginger Root and Nettle, rice protein and amino, along with Acai Berry Extract; just to name the few nourishing ingredients while also being paraben, cruelty, and sulfate-free, this gives you an overall volumizing effect that lasts!

Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste

Buy on Amazon

This is my absolute new favorite volumizing shampoo (more like volumizing range). Using rose as the main ingredient, this is more like a volumizing shampoo treatment.

With the combination of Rasoul clay with the rose extract, this not only plumps your hair but gives it a clean refreshing feeling to the scalp. Though this product is a clay, when water is added and emulsified on your scalp in circular motions, the clay turns to a foam cleaner!

A volumizing shampoo can help make the hair appear fuller, bouncier and more full of body. The texture of the hair will be lighter and have movement.

Many shampoos leave behind a residue to optimize hydration, which can ultimately weigh down fine hair. Even some shampoos specifically geared toward volumizing or thickening the hair achieve this effect by coating each hair strand with protein or collagen.

While temporarily these products may lead to the desired effect, over time they can lead to building up, making the hair appear greasy or heavy. In this case, a clarifying shampoo is often needed.

I recommending sulfate-free shampoos to my clients

Sulfate-free shampoos help keep hair full of volume by maintaining the balance of natural oils in the scalp. Hair is cleaned without stripping the hair or the scalp of these beneficial oils, leaving hair with plenty of shine and volume. Aloe Vera in the shampoo acts as a conditioner, leaving the hair smooth, shiny and bouncy.

It promotes hair growth, prevents itching, reduces dandruff and conditions the hair without being heavy. The result in more hair movement and bounce. The shampoo texture is light and smooth and rinses clean with no residue. The result is healthy hair that is balanced, shiny and more full of volume.

TRESemme Dry Shampoo for Volume

Buy on Amazon

While I am no hair expert, I am the intended target audience. I have fine and flat hair, and from experience, I realized that it is not only what you use it’s how you use it. My best and go-to solutions are:

  • Never use conditioner on your scalp, it’ll just make your hair limper.
  • It’s all about how you dry your hair. When drying your hair be sure to point the nozzle of the hairdryer from under the brush so as to dry the hair upwards for a volume effect.
  • Dry Shampoo is your best friend to get that texture and body we need without using products that will give a stiff or greasy effect.

I personally tried TRESemme Dry Shampoo for Volume and it was great, it has a spray effect to it which helped with a great body.
