For the rest of us mere mortals who weren’t blessed with thick, voluminous hair, this tutorial should suffice.

Instructions

1. To really penetrate those roots, use a lifting shampoo and massage for 3-5 minutes into your hair. Rinse with tepid water and leave the hair to naturally air dry.

2. While you’re waiting for your hair to dry, use a volumising mousse on your ends and roots. This will really help to thicken your hair and add some much-needed texture to it.

3. If you are rather impatient, use a diffuser on a cool temperature and concentrate it mainly on your roots. Use a round brush to give your hair some extra volume. To avoid any annoying flyaways, use a finishing spray to boost the sleek and shiny texture of your hair.
