What is a good volumizing product to use? the crown of my hair always seems to fall flat?

I really love Alterna's Bamboo Mousse, I use it when my hair is towel dried and just put it into the crown and root area, and then I blow dry it--this is important too:

Blow dry it in sections (I do it upside down or with my head tilted, without a brush, for a few inches below shoulder length hair) in the OPPOSITE direction from which it will lay when it's done. SO if it is on the right side of your part, roll it over the left side of your hair and blow dry focusing on the roots (don't worry about the length yet), removing a small layer every few seconds/minutes, and let it cool just a moment before flipping it into the correct direction. Then go back and get the length of it after the roots are in good shape. You can also do this back-to-front if you don't wear a part.


The mousse I was talking about:

Blowdrying you hair while over exaggerating the lift with a round brush will give you mega lift and use big velcro rollers to hold the style in place until your hair has cooled (you can use the cool shot button but letting it cool on its own is best approx. 2-5 mins or longer is good. Leave them in while you do your makeup then take them out). Also spraying dry shampoo right at the root then using the heat of a blow drying with it concentrated in the area, while roughing up the underside, then use the cool shot while using the same technique. Afterward smooth the top area with a brush or flatiron and you will get a nice "bump" that is not over teased and still smooth looking. Spray hairspray on the underside and top (small amounts) and this should last you at least for the day. If it falls a little flat just use the blowdryer again to rev it back up and a lil more dry shampoo if needed.


Hope this helps!

@Mariaaaaaa, Check out Living Proof’s new Full Root Lifting Spray and Full Thickening Cream.


Usage: Spray 5-10 pumps of Full Root Lifting Hairspray directly at the roots of clean, towel-dried hair. Follow with a dime size of Full Thickening Cream, spreading evenly through your hair starting just beyond the roots and working down the hair shaft to the ends. Comb through and style using a blowdryer.

I don't know of any good product from Sephora but Herbal Essences makes an amazing 'root booster', Catwalk and Chi also makes a good one. Shake the product, spray some in your hair, and then massage into the scalp. Blow dry your hair by pulling up parts of the crown with a round brush and bring the hot air along the roots. This will give you bouncy, shiny volume.
