My 6 tips for long-lasting volume
A question I’m asked by everyone from models to celebrities to followers is how to get bigger hair that lasts - volume with staying power. Here are the tips I share with them that you can follow if you want to take your hair to new heights 😊
1. START WITH CARE
A voluminous do starts in the shower with the right haircare. Use lightweight shampoos and conditioners that won’t weigh your hair down or make it fall flat. If you regularly use a treatment mask, use it the day after and not as part of your big do prep. For fuller, thicker hair dos, try my Light Cleanse Hair & Scalp Shampoo & Light Nourish Conditioner.
2. GENTLY AIR DRY
Your hair is most vulnerable when wet, so get as much moisture out of your hair before you start blow-drying. Ideally, your hair will be 80% air-dried before you begin styling. So either let it dry naturally or gently dry all over with your hairdryer on a medium speed and heat before using a brush.
3. GET THE ROOT LIFT
My award-winning Cool Gift SuperLift Volumising Spray is your gateway to fuller, bigger looking hair that stays all day/night. Spray it evenly on your damp or dry roots and blow dry.

4. USE A QUALITY BRUSH
Invest in a quality round bristle brush – or, if you can’t get the knack of using one – a paddle brush. A good brush will distribute your hair's natural oils from root to tip, gently remove any tangles and stimulate your scalp. It won’t pull or drag the hair as you style it.
5. PROTECT FROM HEAT
I always protect hair from the heat of a hairdryer. My Save the Do Blow Dry Style Starter adds a little hold, a little shine and a lot of protection. Spray evenly through damp hair before blow drying. It's the perfect foundation to voluminous styles.
6. BOOST VOLUME AND SHINE
Tip your head upside down, directing your hairdryer on your roots blowdrying them the opposite way to which they grow. Throw it back, then smooth while lifting your hair in sections upwards with your brush or fingers until dry. The secret to that supermodel shine is to point the nozzle of the hairdryer down the hair.
