The goal being to reduce as much as possible the exposure of your hair to a direct heat source, always refer a towel to your hair dryer , and believe me, your hair will thank you!

Yes, but I love blow drying! What do I do without heat? Ok for hot air, but don't forget your all-important heat protectant to avoid damaging your hair.

And for the Farrah Fawcett look that will make other funny ladies jealous , use a round comb for guaranteed results.

Sebum out of my sight : Tips and volume

It seems that fine hair often rhymes with oily hair . You notice that your hair tends to gray quite quickly, even though it is already lacking volume, that's it!

We recommend that you first avoid repeated washing . Washing your hair regularly can cause the scalp to produce more sebum. And, therefore, to re-grease your hair quickly.

What if we changed the situation?

Little tip, and not the least, opt for a dry shampoo.

Dry shampoo is a spray to spray on the scalp. It contains powders (rice, corn starch, etc.) responsible for absorbing the sebum accumulated on the roots, as well as specific active ingredients : nettle for oily hair for example. Have you never used one? Don't worry, we'll guide you step by step:

  1. Shake your dry shampoo spray well, an important gesture for optimal results!

  1. Spray the product 3 cm from your scalp strand by strand towards the roots

  1. Leave the product to act for a few minutes

  1. Use your dry towel and gently rub your hair

  1. Finally, brush your hair to remove powder residue, this will prevent you from having gray hair before its time ! . ?

And there you have it, your hair is fresh and invigorated for a few hours or a day if it is thick and up to 48 hours if it is fine. Dry shampoo allows you to regulate excess sebum by spacing out the days until your next shampoo, it also allows you to give volume to your roots .

For those who prefer to know exactly what their products contain. Madam President in her great generosity offers you a recipe for homemade dry shampoo.

Madam President's little recipe for homemade dry shampoo? :

  • 30 grams of cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa

  • A few drops of essential oils of your choice to give a pleasant scent to your shampoo (essential oil of lemon, lavender, etc. )

Mix everything , and store the shampoo in an airtight jar.

And if you're really in a hurry and you don't have dry shampoo on hand or the ingredients for DIY, a little talcum powder on the roots will do the trick! Be careful not to apply too much and not to leave the product on your hair. The film effect is not the style we are looking for, do we agree?

As with dry shampoo, let it work, rub with a towel and brush your hair.

Finally , favor straight cuts and mid-length hair to give a voluminous effect to your hair , don't forget to add the food supplements Resolution n °1 or Hairboost to help you achieve your goal.

Nothing can stop you, now voluminous hair is within reach. I'm going to share this article with my college friend, who is still very desperate for its volume. And you, do you have any other effective tips for giving volume to your hair?
