Super straight red hair is undeniably sophisticated, but dozens of redheads lack volume and texture; therefore they don’t have much hair style options and some are unable to update their look. Flat hair can’t hold styles for more than 10 minutes because of product build up, excessive conditioning and/or genetics.

With the right routine and products, flat hair can be transformed to a full body of gorgeous red hair. Hair volumizing products add thickness and hydration to to hair, keeping it healthy and full of body.

Here is a look into the right ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved products for faking thick, full hair:

1. Volumizing shampoo and conditioner will keep your red hair from falling flat because they penetrate deep into the cuticle and its active ingredients guarantee thickness and fullness. Try a product like, Big Sexy Hair Big Volume Shampoo And Conditioner Set

2. Volumizing hairsprays give fine hair incredible and lasting volume. Apply to damp hair and blow dry directly to your roots. Try: Aveda ‘Pure abundance’ Volumizing Hair Spray

3. Volumizing mousse creates more volume to the roots and the rest of your hair. Apply mousse to towel-dry hair and blow dry. When you apply the mousse, make sure to distribute it evenly using your fingers and  “scrunch” your hair while blow drying it. Try a spray like Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam

4. Dry shampoo will add a considerable amount of volume to the hair! It’s healthy to skip shampooing for 1 or 2 days and replace your normal shampoo with a dry shampoo to keep hair clean. Spray or rub into the roots of the hair and blow dry, concentrating on the roots.
