There will always be debates about how often you should wash your hair, but I prefer to wash mine every other day. However, I always want my hair to look its best on the second day, so I've come up with a method that works great for adding volume and smoothing the frizzies. Here's my flat hair fix to show how I take my hair from flat to fabulous!
Before & After: Follow along to learn about my flat hair fix.
Here's what my hair looks like when I wake up on the second day–before I track down a comb.
If you're going to follow along, these are the items you'll need: dry shampoo, a comb, heat protectant, velcro rollers, a flat iron, and bobby pins.
Add Dry Shampoo
Step 1: Spray your roots with dry shampoo. Batiste in the tropical scent is my all-time favorite, and it's extremely inexpensive! This is one of the best products to keep on hand for hair emergencies, in my opinion.
Step 2: Massage the dry shampoo into your roots. This step is important because it allows the shampoo to soak up all the oils that lurk in second-day hair.
Doing my best to mimic the “happy girls in hair commercials” look. Ha! 🙂
Add a Smoothing Agent
Step 3: Brush through your hair and spray with a shine spray/ heat protectant. I'm using Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector Straightening Mist 48 Hour Finish here, but I also love TRESemme Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray. You can't go wrong with either one!
Step 4: Now run the product through the ends of your hair with your fingers to evenly disperse it.
Step 5: Section off the front portion of your part by the approximate width of your velcro curlers.
Step 6: Run a flat iron over the hair to warm it up.
Add Velcro Rollers
Step 7: Quickly roll your hair into the velcro roller, and pin securely with a bobby pin.
Step 8: Continue with this process all the way down the face-framing sections of hair, and pay attention to the direction you roll your hair. You'll want to place the roller under the section in order to lift the roots as your hair cools.
Being cheesy again, because I feel silly taking tutorial shots in curlers. 🙂
Step 9: Repeat these steps behind the previous face framing rollers, and so on and so forth, until you've wrapped every section of hair into a velcro roller.
Enjoy Fuller Volume!
Step 10: Wait approximately 15 minutes for your hair to cool, and remove the rollers! Viola!! Smooth and voluminous hair.
