Volume Control: 3 Ways to Tame Your Unruly Hair

Stylist working on a client's hairWhen you have thick and heavy hair, managing it could be a hard task at times. You don’t have to cut your hair short and spend so much money on hair care products to get a manageable hair. Luckily, there are different techniques available which will help tame it and make it easy to manage. Here are different ways to minimise the thickness of your hair and make it appear smoother.

1. Go to Your Hairstylist

If you want to manage the volume of your hair while maintaining a good hairstyle, then going to the salon is your best option. True, you could control your frizz and curls by yourself with hair products. But rather than applying a multitude of hair products, hairstylists help you manage your hair by trimming your hair cutting split ends. Most probably they’ll use thinning scissors to take care of your unruly hair. The shears are designed to cut the tips of your hair but not too close to the root. This leaves you with an amount that has less volume but is easy to style and hold its shape against New Zealand’s climate.

2. Appropriate Hair Care Routine

Having an appropriate hair care regimen is another easy way of controlling your hair. To curb frizzing and minimise volume, use cold water to wash your hair. Cold water allows the hair to lie flat and appear less puffy. Avoid shampooing your hair daily and instead, give it plain rinses in between. Instead of using a conditioner, use an apple cider vinegar solution to accomplish lustrous, glossy locks. You could also apply creams, gels or serums meant for volume control.

3. Different Styling

When you have thick hair with bushy ends, your hair will adopt an unbalanced look. If your hair tends to appear bulky, opt for a layered cut. Having layers allows redistribution of volume giving you a sleek look. Where you are growing your hair from a shorter style, work with your stylist so they can incorporate more layers. Avoid blunt haircuts too so you can achieve a thinned outlook.

For an easy everyday look, use a blow-dryer and follow it up with a taming product such as an anti-frizz serum. A flat iron will give an even thinner look as it leaves your hair flat and controls the volume effectively.
