Beauty Shortcuts: Boost Hair Volume in 15 Minutes Without Heat

By now, the trace of volume from your Monday-morning blowout is deflating. Good thing we’re here to dish some easy lazy-girl tricks to getting major volume in 15 minutes without heat. 

Boost your roots with dry shampoo

Not Your Mothers Dry Shampoo

If you dread washing your hair, then you already know dry shampoo is a godsend. Not only does it soak up oil, but it also adds volume to the roots. We recommend Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo. It leaves hair with a non-drying matte finish, and adds some serious oopmh.

Use Velcro Rollers

A little old-school, we know, but velcro rollers can add serious lift to the roots and curl to the ends without needing clips. Use them on dry sections of hair, and prep each with hair spray before rolling under and toward the scalp for about 15 minutes to lock in the style. 

Spritz your strands with a volumizing mist

Spraying a volumizing mist to your hair not only removes the oil buildup that's causing your hair to weigh down, but it lifts the roots with a long lasting softness. Influensters rave over Pureology Pure Volume Thickening Mist. A little goes a long way and it adds major thickness to extremely fine hair. 

Massage your scalp with mousse

herbal essences

Massaging a bit of mouse to the roots adds instant volume and texture to strands for a natural, beach wave feel. Herbal Essences Bold Envy Volumizing Mousse is famous for plumping fine hair without the hefty price tag. It’s lightweight, flake-free, and tames flyaways.
