HOW -TO ADD VOLUME TO FINE HAIR 2 May

Kate Upton sported voluminous locks at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards.

Choose the right products: Purchasing a good shampoo and conditioner is vital, viagra 100mg not only for giving limp locks oomph but for keeping them healthy. “Look for ingredients like protein, which strengthens and restores hair to optimum condition,” says Nader. Be wary of thick conditioners as these can weigh down the hair, instead try using a leave-in conditioning spray to nourish the mid-lengths and ends, such as KMS California Add Volume Body Build Detangler ($31.95; 1800 506 060).

Be careful with your cut: Nader says to avoid razor cutting as it severs the ends, causing hair to look thinner. When it comes to fine hair, he’s a big fan of the blunt cut. “When cut the right way, you’ll see a noticeable increase in volume,” he says. Tip: mix up your blunt style with a few short layers around your face, as this will also add height.

Style wisely: ”Sea-salt spray, volumising foam and dry shampoo are your go-to products,” says Nader. For Alexa Chung-esque waves, spritz sea-salt spray all over your hair and tousle it through the ends. Massaging dry shampoo into your roots will not only absorb your natural oils, which weigh down hair, it will provide important texture and lift. To get full hair, apply volumising spray on wet locks pre blow-dry—we love Bumble & Bumble Thickening Spray ($44; at meccacosmetica.com.au).

Boost your blow-dry: Beginning with the top half of your hair, blow-dry small sections, wrap them into a barrel shape and secure with a pin. “Once cool, remove the pin and you’ll notice your blow-dry will be fuller and will also last a lot longer,” says Nader.
