Social media is awash with the thick, swishy hair of influencers as they go about their day-to-day lives. But what if you weren’t as blessed in the hair department and you’ve tried every volume spray under the sun with mediocre results? It’s time to fine-tune your daily hair ritual for added oomph, and it begins as soon as you step in the shower…

STEP 1: Wash and replenish

Don’t underestimate the power of a good in-shower haircare ritual when it comes to boosting volume. A shampoo containing high levels of sulfates can dry hair out and wear away its protective cuticle, leaving strands prone to breakage and frizz. On the flip side, a conditioner rich in heavy silicones can weigh it down and leave it looking limp and lifeless. Nexxus’s haircare ranges are all powered by a unique PROTEINFUSION blend, replenishing the protein loss caused by specific types of damage. The Nexxus Unbreakable Care Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner are silicone-, sulfate- and paraben-free and create natural fullness.

STEP 2: Wrap, don’t rub

Did you know that the way you dry your hair can affect how it looks once it’s styled? Harsh rubbing with a rough towel can cause friction damage to the outer cuticle, leading to breakage, frizz and essential moisture loss. Try wrapping your hair in a microfiber turban instead, or gently patting out excess water with a microfiber towel. It’s worth remembering that most styling products require the hair to be a little damp for even application, so heavy manual drying really isn’t necessary.

STEP 3: Style and protect

Whether you blow dry your hair or scrunch to encourage curl, the key is to defy gravity by tipping your head upside down while you do it. Just as important are the products you use. The best volumizing spray will add grit to hair and allow strands to sit higher on the scalp. Mousses and texturizing powders are also great for boosting hair density, instantly. Try Volume Medium Hold Mousse or Unbreakable Care Root Lift Thickening Spray to create volume at the root – all Nexxus styling products are powered by an advanced STYLEPROTECT technology, formulated to offer weightless protection against style-ruining heat and humidity.

STEP 4: Extra hold

Ensuring your new-found hair height lasts is down to finding a lightweight finishing spray that fixes, without weighing down. The XXL Volume Medium Hold Hair spray is a volumizing hair spray for thin hair, but can also be described as an anti-humidity hair spray, due to its humidity-rejecting qualities. Just a light layer provides medium-hold, mega volume for up to 48 hours. Spray it all over, tipping your hair upside down and teasing volume at the roots for optimum results.
