The majority of the time, when I'm using hair styling products, it is usually because I am trying to create volume. Due to having long, thick hair, I really struggle to create volume from the root as it is often too heavy. I have gathered together three of my top hair products to create volume. 

Redken Pillow Proof Primer*

This Blow Dry Express Treatment Primer is a lovely product to use on freshly washed hair to create volume and make it extremely light at the roots. I have already written a full review of the product that you can read here. Due to the thickness of my hair I usually apply two pumps of this serum on to my palms and then evenly place the product on my roots whilst my hair is damp. I then blow dry my hair upside down to add even more volume. What I love about this product is that it isn't sticky and my hair still has a lot of movement once I've styled it. It is really light and doesn't leave any residue in my hair. 

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hair Spray

I have harped on about this hair spray quite a few times now on Madolyn Thinks, but it has truly become a staple in my beauty collection. I like to apply this on damp or dry hair to add texture and volume to my roots. It is a water based product which means that once set, it doesn't become sticky and hard like a lot of other hair sprays. It is a little on the expensive side of things, but I do believe that you get what you pay for. I only need to use a small amount to start to notice a big difference and for someone with a lot of hair, that's saying something! 

Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

I have always loved using dry shampoo in between washes to spruce-up my hair, but I also like to apply it as a thickening agent on the roots of my hair. A small amount of dry shampoo, even on newly washed locks, can add extra volume and texture. I don't like to do this too often however as I don't want too much product build up, but it really does add some much needed volume the day before wash day. I really like No Drought by Lush as it is a powder rather than a spray so you can easily control how much product is being used and really work it into the hair.
