A lot of men like a lot of volume and texture in their hair these days. Unfortunately, not all of us have a thick afro and that volume drops a bit during the day. Your haircut becomes flat and it looks like you have less or thinner hair. It is very easy to blame the styling product. To keep volume in your hair all day long, you need a little more than just a good styling product.
Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that difficult to create volume in your hair. There are a number of things you can do to ensure that your hair retains that volume all day long. Follow our five tips for a voluminous hairstyle that lasts all day.
1: The right hairstyle
Of course it all starts with the right hairstyle. If your hair is very thick or very long, it will sag anyway. It's simply too heavy. You want a haircut where your hair is slightly longer in the front and shorter in the back. This way you quickly get a lifting effect. If your hair is really thick, you can thin it out a bit.
2: Pre styling
What you do with your hair before you actually style it really makes a world of difference. Apply a grooming spray , foam or sea salt spray in wet or towel-dried hair and then blow dry. Try to finish with the hair dryer on the coldest setting. Your hair cuticles will close and that results in hair that lasts longer.

3: Use the right product

4: Work in different layers
With different layers we mean that you always add a little more product when necessary. So you start with a very small fingertip of your styling product. If you add too much at once, your hair will immediately collapse. So you start with a little bit and distribute it well through the hair. From the bottom to the top. If necessary, use a comb to create extra volume. This way you can always add a little bit until you have the desired model.
5: Finish it off with a hairspray
Hairspray or hairspray is not a styling product but purely a finishing touch to fix your volume. Spray a little in your hand and gently wipe over the tufts that stick out. This works perfectly to prevent protruding picks. Then gradually spray all over your hair. Use a distance of at least 20 cm so that it gets evenly on your hair. Here too, you should not spray too much because you will make your hair wet and too heavy.
