6 tips for more volume in your hair

6 tips for more volume in your hair

A beautiful full head of curls that only screams one thing: volume! Who doesn't love that? We all do! Could you use some more tips on how to get the maximum volume out of your curly hair? Then make sure to read this article! Below are some tips that ensure volume in your hair.

  1. Work upside down

Yes, we know, it sounds super uncomfy, and we're not going to lie, it kind of is. But the saying “beauty is pain” really comes into play here. Because in this case, gravity is your best friend! Doing your hair routine upside down will pull your curls toward the floor. If you then stand up straight again, your roots will have more volume.

  1. Don't use too much water

Water is key in your styling routine, we Curlygirls all agree on that. But if you're going for a voluminous look, we recommend going easy on the aqua! Because too much water can weigh down your hair. Especially with wavy or thinner hair, this is something to keep an eye on.

  1. Use light hair products

Just like with water, using too many (and heavy) products in your hair is not favorable, especially if you want to go for volume. Creams and butters can quickly be too much for your curls, so use light products in your hair. The Curlygirlmovement Styling Milk and Defining Gel are perfect examples of 'less is more.' These are beautiful lightweights, but they give the maximum result!

  1. Our Curly Hair Towel

We know you have to love all your babies equally… but we secretly call the Curly Hair Towel our favorite! We are proud of this lovely double-sided towel that is there for you, no matter what mood you're in! The side with the fine waffle weave ensures that more moisture is absorbed from your hair and voilà… more volume! What are you waiting for? Go get yours!

  1. Diffuse your curls

The way you dry your curls largely determines your volume. There are several ways to dry your hair. Two well-known ones are Air Drying (letting it dry by itself) and plopping your curls. But to really go for that maximum volume, grab your diffuser. Yes, upside down here as well. And don't be afraid to turn it up a notch because warmer air simply gives that extra volume boost! But protection above all else, so make sure you have your heat protectant spray on hand to protect your beautiful head of curls from the heat!

  1. Pluff and scrunch!

Okay... your hair is dry, and gurrrrllll, your volume is on point! But hold up, we're not done yet. Scrunch the layer of gel out of your hair to soften your curls. Grab your afro comb to create even more volume. Run your fingers through your hair for a while, and don't worry too much about that bit of frizz. Embrace the whole package!


We are, of course, very excited when we see your beautiful curls styled with our products! Were these tips helpful to you, and are you now walking around with a voluminous head of Happy Curls? We don't wanna miss the fun! Share your photos with us using the hashtag #CGMLook on the Gram!
