Hi I'm Rebekah George beauty director for Prevention magazine and you’re watching Easy Ways to Look Younger. Today I'm going to show you how to age defying volume in five simple steps.
Step one, use a Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. These contain lightly polymers that cling to hair and plump strands to enhance you hair’s volume. Try a 2 in 1 version to limit product build up which can wave your hair down. We like Pantene Pro-V full thick 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner which you can find at the drugstores for just $4.00.
Step two, use on volumizing styler, we like John Frieda Luxurious Volume Lavish Lift Root Booster. Because it’s lightweight and still give hair a boost. You can get it for just $6.50 at drug stores, just spray them to damp roots because that’s why hair gets its volume and then distribute evenly by combing through to your ends.
Step three, blow dry with a big round brush. We like goodies Smart Volumized Brush which you can find for $5.00 at drug stores. To dry, lift hair at the roots and wrap one to two inch factions around the brush. Aim the nozzle upward and use the attachment of your dryer to target the hot air. And don’t flip your hair over because that going to add width not volume. You can begin styling your hair when it is 80% dry that’s when it holds it shape.
Step four, lock and lift with rollers from Maximum Oomphf from one to two inch pieces of hair at your crown or on a few self adhering, rollers. Heat with you blow dryer for one minute and let them cool, that will help hold the shape. Gently unroll and shake out with your fingers, but don’t use a brush or comb that can cause hair to flatten.
Step five, finish with hair spray, but don’t spray all over the old fashion way, instead mist it into the air and walk into it. Because indirect application cuts down on product build up which helps maintain bounce. Or you can spray it into your hands and lightly break it over strands. Try Garneir Fructis Volumized Anti-Humidity Hairspray which you can find for just $4.00 at drug stores.
