My 6 Tips for Long-Lasting Volume
1. START WITH CARE
A voluminous do starts in the shower with the right haircare. Use lightweight cleansers and conditioners that won’t weigh your hair down or make it fall flat. Our NEW Cool Girl Volume Care Collection has a unique blend of hero ingredients including Voluminis™ to pump up the volume from the start of your haircare ritual. Lather Volume Cleanse into your hair, followed by Volume Nourish for soft and elevated hair. If you regularly use a non-volumising treatment mask, use it the day after and not as part of your big do prep. However, our Cool Girl Bigger Love Volumising Treatment Mask, formulated with Voluminis™ and without Castor Oil to prevent your strands from being weighed down, means you can now use a nourishing mask after cleansing, and still add volume.
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.
