How to Get Volume in Bob Hair

You have recently had your hair done and are now wondering just how other ladies know how to get volume in bob hair dos. The simplest and quickest means is to take the largest round barrel brush that you have, and set your hair dryer on high with the fan on. Begin from the base of your neck and roll your hair over the brush, gently pulling it out as you blow dry. Work on just 2-3 inches at a time. Blow drying your damp hair this way opens out every strand of hair and brings it to life. Once you are done with entire bob, apply a small amount of a volumnizing product on your hair, and straighten it out with the curling iron. Your bob cut will have a great bounce to it.

Quick Tips on How to Get Volume in Bob Hair

There are many ways in which you can add that bounce to your bob when you are short on time. If you have curly hair, blow dry damp hair bit by bit until you have done your entire hair. The trick here is not to blow dry your hair upside down as most women with curls tend to do. It makes your hair curl out in an odd manner. Stick to straight blow drying, and you will see your hair bob just right.

Hair Mousse

If you have lifeless hair, apply some hair mousse into your damp hair, and then blow dry it with a roller brush. Once done, spritz a bit of heat protection spray onto your hair, and then work the blow dryer on it; this gives added bounce to your hair.

If you must blow dry your hair upside down, spritz a bit of your hair spray onto your finger tips and massage them into the tips of your hair. When you are blow drying your hair, don’t be very severe on the heat or the pull of the brush. This will help your hair bob nicely.

If you wash your hair every day, put some large curlers in your damp hair, and blow dry it this way. After, take the curlers off, and brush your hair out. You will find that it has a nice thick bob.

How to Get Volume in Bob Hair Regularly

There are several things we do to our hair rather unwittingly that cause it to be dull and lifeless. If you are looking to increase the volume in your hair, here are a few pointers that you should keep in mind.

Have your hair evaluated without any hair products added to it. Several women have hair that has a naturally good bounce to it, but ends up getting weighed down by all the products used on it. The silicone and polymers present in volumnizing products tend to stick to hair and make it heavy and unwieldy. You end up losing your natural bounce. Use only as much as you need to.

Styling Products

Styling products are the next thing you need to look into; those that promise shine are generally made of ingredients that make your hair flat. If you absolutely must use these products, then it would be best to spray them on to a large blush brush very sparingly, and then brush your hair lightly with it. You will get all the goodness of the product without taking on any of the weight.

If you are one of those people who have shifted to a shampoo that does not contain sulphate, then you are only contributing to the build-up of product in your hair. Sulphates are the primary cleansers in shampoos and without them, heavy product residue is often not cleansed out of your hair. This reduces your chances of getting a good bounce out of your locks.

Try an experiment the next time you wash your hair. Time it to just before you go to bed. Once done, towel dry it and then wrap your head in a towel until you finish all your other nightly rituals. Take the towel off your hair and go to bed. When you wake up the next morning, if you find that your now dry hair is standing out much better, it means blow drying is not really the means for you to get bouncy hair, but natural drying is.
