Give Your Roots a Mega Boost
Has your hair flatlined? These insider secrets inflate a limp mane, leaving you with awesome, long-lasting volume.
1Sandwich a towel around small sections of damp hair, and squeeze. Besides absorbing water, this roughs up the cuticles (hair’s covering) so they don’t lie flat.
2After massaging a dimesize dollop of mousse (try The Body Shop Guarana Berry Volumising Mousse) onto your scalp, blow-dry your roots while tugging them for added height.
3Clip up all hair but a 2-inch section. Hold a round brush under it and the dryer right above. Pull both tools downwards simultaneously; twirl the brush at the ends to curl. Repeat until that part is dry and smooth.
4Continue this process until all your hair is dry. Now gather the strands above your ears and pull them toward the ceiling. Heat the roots for about 10 secs, then hold hair in place until it’s cool.
5 Pushstrands to one side of your head, blowing the roots again; switch sides and repeat. Now create your part, which will be full and fabulous.
