How to Add Volume To Your Roots

Lainee Read

Author Lainee Read | Social Media Manager, Sam Villa

Every girl loves volume and we have a secret you are going to LOVE! A simple trick to add volume to your roots without backcombing your hair AND it's guaranteed to last until you wash your hair!

You've seen the texture and volume the Sam Villa TEXTUR Iron creates for braiding, so lets create that same volume at the scalp. That's right , no product build up or teasing of the hair!

Are you ready for this?

DesertBlossom-3 Isolate the top section of your hair, this will be used to cover the added texture to your hair. Before you use your iron, spray the hair with Redken iron shape 11, a heat protectant, to guard your hair from heat damage. Come in with your Sam Villa for Redken Volume & Texturizing Iron, taking a 1/4" thick section that is no wider than the plates on your iron, and compress the iron and hold for about 3-4 seconds. For maximum results we recommend compressing right near the scalp and an additional 2-3 compressions aways from the scalp.
DesertBlossom-4 After adding the texture to the hair, take your fingers and shake the texture patterns loose. This will create the volume. Do this all the way around the head.
DesertBlossom-5 If your hair falls flat at the end of the day, use the same shake method to awaken the texture! For added texture, apply Redken powder grip 03 right at the scalp for a boost of volume.

Amazing right? Apply this technique prior to curling or braiding your hair!
