Full, voluminous, and bouncy curls are actual natural hair goals. The not-so-good news is that not every natural has big, naturally curly hair or that extra volume. Thin hair can result from hair texture, flatness, or shrinkage. However, it would be better if you had a bit of technique to get that big curly hair you desire. Here are 7 easy ways to add that extra volume to your curly hair.
1. Dry your 4C Hair with a Diffuser
Using a diffuser dryer works wonders for 4c curly hair. Adding that heat to your roots will give you extra volume and a much bigger curl definition. The job of the diffuser is to stretch out your roots without causing any frizz. When diffusing, dry it with your hair upside down and flip it from side to side. It helps to lift your heart as it dries and adds volume.
2. Use a Clarifying Shampoo
Your hair may not be getting that extensive voluminous look because your 4C Hair Texture is weighed down by product buildup or from mineral deposits from staying in an area with hard water. Cleanse and condition your hair extensions and natural hair with INDIQUE HAIR CARE ESSENTIALS Moisturizing Shampoo.
3. Separate your Curls
Separating each curl gently into smaller circles can achieve your desired volume. After using protective styles like twist-outs, braid-outs, or perm rod sets to define your curls, apply a little oil to your fingers and gently separate the curls to add more volume to your hair.
4. Part your hair differently
Drying your hair parted where you want it to be when it’s dry will make your hair flat at the roots. Instead, you should dry your hair in the opposite direction of how you want it parted, so you get more volume when your seeds dry. When dry, you can go ahead and part your hair where you want it. Sounds easy, right?
5. Take a break from products
When you try these techniques and still can’t get volume for your hair, evaluate the products you use. The products you use on your hair may be weighing down your curls and making it impossible to achieve big curly hair. The creams, gels, or mousse may be too heavy on your coils.
6. Install Curly Clip-ins
Add curly clip-ins to your hair if you want to achieve fullness, extra length, volume, and defined curls. Clip-ins are super easy to install and takedown too. They are stress-free, and you can always choose ones that match your hair texture.
7. Use an Afro Hair Pick
Most of us grew up having Afro hair picks in our homes. It is an easy heatless way of adding volume to your hair. After styling your hair, use the Afro hair pick to lift your roots and add volume to your hair. A wide-tooth comb would also work for this technique.
