More often than not, our blogs and guides talk about increasing volume. There are so many people who seem to be cursed with thin hair, and some of our most prominent tips have included using an ionic ceramic flat iron to pull upward on the locks and create the illusion of volume. That’s all well and good, but what about the women who have the exact opposite problem?
We’re speaking, of course, of increased volume where it’s simply not welcome. So what do you do about that? There are so many people who can’t get their hair to stand, but then there are those that can’t get it to calm down. If you’re dealing with this problem, then there are definitely products and techniques that you can use to keep the hair in check.
Make Sure your Hair is Conditioned
Ready to get started? The first thing you’re going to need to do is to make sure that your hair is properly conditioned. In fact, make sure you’re using a leave-in conditioner right before you style. Once you have that taken care of, you’ll be well on your way to quelling that pesky volume. It all starts with the product, and there are a few ways that you can go about it.
When you Want Straight Hair If straight hair is what you’re going for, then you’ll want to use a blow dryer and point downward. This will help to quell the excessive lift. Remember that you can also use our HSI professional ceramic tourmaline ionic flat iron hair straightener to pull downward, in the exact opposite manner you would for additional volume. In other words, it works both ways.
Smoother/Flatter Top If you’re looking for a smoother or even a flatter top, then once again, blow in the correct direction and use a round brush. The round brush, as opposed to the vented brush, will cause the hair to remain close to the scalp.
A Common problem
Hair that is too full, naturally, definitely creates a problem for you, but you can tame it, and you can regain control of your life, as it were. There are several products that can help to calm large hair, fortunately, and the most important part is sealing the cuticle layer. Here’s something that many people fail to understand: hair retains moisture, it’s like a sponge, and if you can keep it sealed, it’s a problem that so many people overlook, and it’s a problem that’s easily fixed.
Don’t Forget to Moisturize
When it comes to moisturizing, there are two major products that you’re going to want to try, and they include:
Leave in Conditioner – We sell one of these right here in our store, and they’re very helpful if you use them right before blow drying. The best brands add moisture and provide greater control over the hair.
Use a Styling Serum
You’re going to want to use a serum to smooth out the cuticle layer, just make sure you follow the instructions properly – these products can be very concentrated and they may cause more harm than good if you’re not careful. Still, it’s definitely worth the investment and a great way for you to get your hair under control in the long run.
Some people love having big hair, but others, well, not so much. Determine where you want your hair to sit, and use the right products to get yourself there.
