We Tried It: 5 Flat Hair Fixes
Do volumizers really work? Or is a blow dryer the secret to bounce? We put five hair-boosting techniques to the test -- find out which ones worked best
Here's what we learned on this test: Teasing should be done in combination with other styling techniques. Because when it's done alone (as seen here), it can look a little ... disheveled (sorry, Sarah). But teasing will always help you add fullness at your roots. Here's how to do it:
1. Section your hair horizontally from ear to ear starting right around eye level. Clip the top portion out of the way.
2. Begin teasing your hair using a fine-toothed comb. The more back-and-forth strokes, the more volume.
3. Repeat with the rest of your hair. Be sure to widen each teased section as you go to create an even fullness. To avoid the frizzy, rough-at-the-roots look, leave the very top layer of hair un-teased to conceal the rough teased sections underneath.
