If you live in the nyc area or, well, any area that has a few hair salons, you’re probably familiar with the concept of a blowout. Blowout beauty salons are very popular around these parts, and for good reason. Your hair looks incredible afterward! — and the style lasts for days.

But blowouts get expensive after a while, which is why I only get them when I get my hair cut/colored.


What’s a thin-haired girl to do?

When I wash my hair, I don’t blow dry it often because of its texture, but in some cases I still crave a finished, full hair look.

When I do improv and give myself a “blowout” at home, here are the products I use to help get my baby fine hair looking voluminous and shiny.

Here’s my hair best after a wash…

Fresh out of the shower, my thin hair is already practically dry.
Now, I don’t do my home blowouts like numerous people do because I don’t use a round brush. because round brushes cause much more knots in my hair (yes, it’s that cranky). instead I use a comb and my hands.

Lately I’ve been washing my hair with Loreal Everpure volume Shampoo. It’s color-safe and has beautiful notes of rosemary and juniper, and I don’t find it to be stripping at all.

Next is the actual drying, and I always make sure to spray a heat protectant in my hair before I start, as well as a little bit of Dove Serum in Oil.

Flipping my head upside-down, I dry my hair until it’s about 80% dry, then turn to part one of this duo…

I wasn’t amazed by earlier iterations of this line, but these I like. Mousse is always very challenging for me, it either weighs my hair down to the point that I need to wash my hair again the next day, or it makes my haircrunchy, but the perfectly full and forever full formulas from the luxurious volume line have been doing a great job for me lately.

I tried very hard to get this in the shape of a meringue, which is what mousse always reminds me of…
As far as fragrance goes, well…it smells like mousse. less like hairspray (not as heavy on the chemicals), and much more like a light mix of clean and floral.

The product itself feels very light and practically a little too watery, so be careful because it might just melt in your hands.

After scrunching a bit into my hair, especially at the crown of my head, I finish by blowdrying on low with the diffuser attachment, and to avoid knots, I continuously comb/finger-comb my hair while I’m drying.

I’ve been obsessed with this comb best here, and I was devastated when mine broke a few days ago. even much more tragically, my Target hasn’t been stocking it anymore. thank goodness for Amazon!

And here’s what my hair looks like when I’m done…

A good bit of volume for a thin-haired gal!

Please forgive my terrible under-eye bags. This was pre base makeup.

Sweeping my hair to one side typically gives me much much more volume.

After my hair is dry, I’ll hit it with a light spray of luxurious volume forever full Hairspray to lock in some extra oomph.

Not as voluminous up top, but so, so soft!
Even after a few minutes, I already start to lose a little volume up top, but it’s nothing that a light flipping of my hair can’t solve. because I don’t use a round brush for the sake of my hair, I don’t expect it to last all day long.


What I really love about both of these products is how soft they make my hair, and how the softness lasts for a couple of days after using them. even after I’ve touched up and sprayed it on my hair repeatedly, my hair always feels touch-ably soft.

The John Frieda luxurious volume perfectly full Mousse and forever full Hairspray are both great drugstore purchases at about $6.99 each if you’re searching for good, solid products to add volume without breaking the bank.

Have you ever given yourself a blowout at home? What are some of your favorite volume-boosting products? And does anybody else out there have a hard time using a round brush on fine hair?
