How to Get Full Fabulous Hair


Choose the right shampoo

"Look for a volumizing shampoo that coats the hair with thickeners. Scan the ingredient list for things like panthenol, proteins, and amino acids."—Jim Hammer, a cosmetic chemist in Easton, Massachusetts

Rediscover mousse. "Mousse cre­ates long-lasting body and volume, blow-dries beautifully, and can last for days without becoming sticky or greasy. Squirt some onto a vented brush, and rake it through from roots to tips before blow-drying."—Nathaniel Hawkins, TRESemmé celebrity stylist

Time-saving tip: "Hair powder is my secret weapon. It thickens on contact and absorbs oils that make hair slick and limp."—Christina Cipro, stylist at Blow, the New York Blow Dry Bar in New York City
