Here's How to Get Voluminous Bouncy Hair 😍😍😍

Jul. 21, 2020
Are you looking to achieve that just-walked-out-of-the-salon bouncy natural volume style? Somewhere between the huge blowout of the ’80s and the so-slick-it-sticks-to-your-head look of the ’90s, there lies a sleek yet bouncy medium. Many times when we straighten our hair ourselves at home we can achieve a style that is too straight, with no volume and no movement. Luckily, there are a few tricks you can do to give your hair extra volume while straightening it. 
Hair straightening creates a smooth, bend-free finish and helps tame flyaways and frizz. Even if you have thin or fine hair you can also enjoy the benefits of straightening without sacrificing volume. Using the correct products before and after straightening helps ensure fuller hair with plenty of body and movement and for best results we recommend starting with already dry hair. 
Top tips
  • Start in the shower
Let's get one thing clear: no shampoo or conditioner will give you straight hair. But hair care items labeled "smoothing" may be able to help prepare the strands for the process by providing major moisture. Hair that's dried out and brittle before you even start with the straightener is the culprit behind frazzled hair that won't lie flat. Take a paddle brush to comb the conditioner through, then rinse your hair gently. 
  • Use the right brush
A boar bristle and nylon mix brush would be the best place to start. Nylon would cause static on its own, which is why plastic brushes are difficult to use. The boar bristle helps to smooth and polish. We also recommend using a round brush so you can tease the hair into a more voluminous shape.
  • Pick the right iron
By choosing a flat iron with advanced technology will ensure you achieve that bouncy voluminous look. If your flat iron is a dinosaur, you could be following all of these tips and still ending up with less-than-flawless hair. When it comes to straightening, the proof is in the product. Choose a modern iron with an automatic shut off feature, one that heats up quickly and make sure you don’t have the heat too high! 
What you will need:
  • Duckbill clips
  • A flat iron
  • A hair brush
  • A light-hold hair spray
5 simple steps
From prep work to the finishing touches, these 5 simple steps will give you the best way to straighten hair without causing unnecessary damage.
  • Start with dry hair. Apply heat protectant to your hair. It won't do much to give your hair extra volume, but it will protect your hair from heat damage, and prevent it from turning brittle and dry. Be sure to focus the heat protectant on the ends of your hair, which tend to get damaged the easiest.
  • Section off your hair into very small chunks using the duckbill clips and distribute your tresses into even sections all along your head. Start with a small section of hair, close to your hair line. Take a small, 1 to 2-inch section of hair, and clamp your iron over it, as close as you can to your scalp without burning yourself. 
  • Now here’s the key to keeping your volume: When running the iron down the length of your hair, do not clamp it down. Instead, leave it slightly open to benefit from the direct heat but also maintain as much volume as possible. Pulling the iron upwards helps create volume, while pulling it away makes it easier on your arm.
  • To fend off frizz, evenly coat your brush with the hair spray and comb it through.
  • Finish off by running your hands through your hair. Run your fingers upwards through your hair, starting at the roots. This will give your hair that final lift it needs. If you want to, give your hair a spray with some light-hold hairspray.
  • Your hair finally has the volume that you want, and straightening it was easy! Use these simple 5 steps every time you want to add volume and enjoy!
    Extra tip - If you want your straightened hair to last an extra day, use a volumizing mist to freshen hair and help maintain the body. Straightened hair can very quickly fall flat and limp if you don’t use the correct hair care products before and after straightening. Products can help to maintain the style whilst allowing your hair to have volume, body, and movement.

    Ever since I’ve added these two new products, I’ve noticed a couple new breakouts in places i’ve never experienced!!! They are red painful pimples too. Two on my forehead (I never get them there) , one on the outside of my nostril (i never get them there either), and the weirdest singular pimple on my NECK! Both of these products I have used on my face and neck, however, I’m not sure what product or ingredient is causing the sudden breakout!! Or is it just purging??? Help!!!!!! Did anyone else experience this with these products??? COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Murad - Nutrient-Charged Water Gel
    NEW FIND! And I’m pleasantly surprised!?
    NEW FIND! And I’m pleasantly surprised!?
    It was time to get a new moisturizer. I was currently using the HONEST - Hydrogel Cream paired with the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer , RADHA BEAUTY - Rosehip Oil , and timeless SKIN CARE - Squalane Oil 100% Pure because I have pretty dry skin. I love both of those moisturizers (although I’m not fond of all the Paula’s choice Omega+ complex moisturizer ingredients, but I loooooove the texture and feeling of it ) and love my oils (I won’t stop using the oils), but knew I needed a richer cream and also wanted to keep it down to just one cream, for time and my bank accounts sake. So if you’ve seen my last post, I was deciding between 3 brands but I couldn’t decide and was also nervous to try a new moisturizer, even though I knew I needed one, because I’m also acne prone so a new moisturizer to me was just terrifying lol. I was about to just get my usual HONEST - Hydrogel Cream because I knew it didn’t break me out and I like it a lot, although not quite as moisturizing as I need, it was on the safer side and I can’t imagine going a day without a moisturizer on this Sahara desert of a face!!! But then I discovered this brand I’ve never seen before? It’s called Awake Human. It’s not even a listing on Cherie for me to add the product! I read the ingredients and was intrigued (scroll through pics to see ingredients list), but because of my fear of new moisturizers, I was hesitant.. but I decided to bite the bullet because the ingredients looked amazing, was cheaper than Paula’s choice and the honest beauty’s moisturizer, but had the same amount of product. I received it a few days ago and I am in love!!!!! Soooooo rich and creamy and hydrating feeling, and it had the same smooth, rich, texture as the Paula’s Choice omega moisturizer, that I love so much!!! It comes in a nice little pump type of packaging, which I like. Keeps bacteria and gunk out. If you scroll through my pictures, you’ll see it. And a little bit goes a long way! The picture you see of the product on my fingers is the amount I use, but you can totally use less, especially if you have more oily or normal skin. I just like a lot of moisturizer! Lol I’ve noticed my face is much less dry feeling and looks smoother with less texture. I will keep you updated, but I think this is my new fave!!!! I’m so excited lol. Here the link the purchase: If you’re hesitant but intrigued like I was, I strongly encourage you to just try it. And if it happens that doesn’t work for your face, because remember, everyone is different and skincare is not a one size fits all, then it would most definitely be a really really nice hand cream, that would fit nicely in your bag. Have you heard of this brand before? And if so, have you used anything from them?

    Preserving My Curls Overnight
    This is how I preserve most of my hairstyles overnight! I hear many people complain about how their bonnet or scarf is always falling off their head and ending up on the floor once they wake up, I was having the same issue! That is when I decided to create a wrap that would stay on throughout the night while protecting your curls. I hand make them myself and sale on Etsy (shop name is Candee Wraps) if you are interested! 😊
