Choose a haircut that gives you volume

Sometimes you just need to get the right haircut to give your hair more volume! Long hair is indeed beautiful but may be harder to get perfect volume, unless you are commited to use the right haircare and spend time to blow-dry to perfection! 

Although, if you wisely choose layered cuts: short or long,  brushing gets way easier and hair will feel fresh as spring.

Finally, you may go with a curled hairstyle (always be careful using thermo-protective care products such as PHYTOKERATINE Extreme Cream, of course). 

Curls give instant movement and volume to your hair with ease! Use light hairsprays like PHYTOLAQUE to fix your curls as long as possible, fine hair tend to lose its curls very easily! 

Recommended Haircare products to use for more volume

To take care of fine, flat hair and (finally) achieve volume, you need to use care products 100% designed for this type of hair! What is the primary concern for fine, flat hair? They are indeed sensitive to the heavy texturized care, too heavy, and to the minimum excess of oil. 

What they need is lightness! The solution resides in light vapourizers and textures without oily mixtures.

The most-effective volumizing gesture: blow-drying

Good to know: In 1964, Patrick Alès, founder of Phyto Paris, invented blow-drying. At the time, hairdressers used rollers to shape hair, he got the idea to combine a round brush with the heat of the hair-dryer, he obtained a temporary hair style that added volume while maintaining the hair’s natural movement. Patrick Alès, founder of Phyto Paris - and of blow-drying : 

“The idea came to me in a flash. What if, instead of having rollers attached to the scalp, I had a mobile roller that, step by step, would shape each section of hair in the right direction? I’d found the answer: blow-drying was born!“

You need to know a few basic rules to be good at blow-drying, here they are now!

Use PHYTOVOLUME Spray, from roots to lengths

Rule number 1 to ensure the success of your blow drying: use a treatment that will boost the volume of fine, flat hair from the roots. PHYTOVOLUME Spray is also able to reinforce the elasticity of the fibre, to give it resilience for a perfect hold of the hairstyle! 

Very important: it is a real thermo-protective shield.

Blow-dry your hair from the roots up

Once the PHYTOVOLUME Spray has been applied to the entire hair and roots, use your blow-dryer (not too hot) and a round brush. Use these 2 essential tools to dry your hair - from the roots to the ends, by lifting the hair well from the roots!
