Top Tip - Volumising straight hair

Hi all! I hope you've had a good start to the bank holiday weekend. I just thought i'd post a quick tip on how to add a bit of extra volume to straight hair. I have naturally quite straight hair and after a dabble with the hair straightners it can sometimes look extremely flat at the roots, recently I rediscovered one of my nans favourite hair products which seems to do the trick when trying to give straight hair that extra va va voom! and it is hair mousse!

Pictured here is my travel size insette volumising extra hold mousse which I carry around in my gigantic handbag! I'm working very long days at the moment so like to have some mousse on hand when my hair starts to droop! Any mousse will do the trick, However I can recommend VO5 mega hold styling mousse (my nans fave!) and the aussie volume and conditioning mousse. I take a smallish amount of mousse (a little bigger than a 50p coin) in the palm of one hand, quickly distribute it between my hands and then massage it into my roots lifting my hair up and out as I do so. When doing this you have to be really careful that you don't use too much and distribute it evenly as otherwise it can make your hair pretty sticky. After doing this I give my hair a quick spritz of hairspray (elnett extra strength) and I'm good to go!

I have long blonde hair and as I mentioned in the things I am currently using tag i am desperately in need of a new shampoo (I've been using my mums for well over a week now she is definately going to notice soon!) Does anyone have any recommendations?

Enjoy the bank holiday!
