1.Hair extensions for short hair
Hair extensions are the fastest and most effective way to add volume to your hair. Yes, even if you have short hair you can use extensions. There is a misconception that extensions are only used to increase hair length, but this is not the case. You can use them to increase the volume, even if you don’t want to increase the length.
To use short hair extensions, your hair must be at least 2.5 cm long.
Dry shampoo is used to give hair a clean look. This effect is achieved by the absorbent power of the shampoo. When applied to the roots of the hair it eliminates the natural grease or sebum produced by the scalp after a day or two of having washed it. That, in turn, has an immediate and lasting volumizing effect.
If you like the idea of using dry shampoo to increase hair volume, but don’t want to put more chemicals in your hair, you can make dry shampoo yourself. Homemade ingredients are used to do this, so you can enjoy the benefits of dry shampoo, but without chemicals. You can see the recipe in our article: “Dry shampoo, what it is and how to use it”.
A texturizing spray is not the same as a lacquer or any other fixing product. Unlike these, texturizing products are not intended to fix the hair, but to give it structure. They may have some fixing effect but not as much as a common lacquer. They are ideal for giving volume, as they change the texture of fine hair, making it look thicker and full-bodied.
The hair is always divided by the same place, and let’s say that it accommodates in that direction, thus losing volume in that area. To avoid that change the hairline from time to time. If you use it in the center you can set it aside to vary, and you will see how you will get more volume than you imagine. In addition, as the hair is not very long and heavy, the roots will maintain the volume achieved for longer.
Carding the roots keeps them upright, achieving instant volume. If you also want that elevation of the roots is maintained all day apply a little lacquer or fixative spray on the roots after carding them. That last gesture will make the volume last much longer.
In order to be more effective it is better than cardes lock by lock. And when you finish carding, comb the part of the hair that is above, in sight, so that it is without knots. Then the carded locks will be hidden and no one will discover your “trick”.
