    Big hair needs good foundations, so start with the best volumising shampoo you can track down. Dove Daily Moisture Light Shampoo is formulated with Oxyfusion technology, ensuring your hair isn't weighed down

    Root lift sprays are about to be your new best friend if you’re after bigger hair since our roots are, well, the root of the problem (no pun intended). If you have long hair, the heaviness in the lengths pulls it down leaving it flat and limp. Root sprays target the roots and add volume where it’s needed most

    Look for treatments that will make your locks look and feel thicker and give them a lift, pre-styling. Dove Daily Moisture Light Conditioner helps fine hair feel volumised, without weighing it down

    For instant volume, look to the humble dry shampoo. No, it’s not just great for adding an extra day to your blow dry – this little gem can also add some serious oomph to your hair. Just spray into the roots and lengths and brush through. The matte finish is also much easier to tousle up

    It’s time to fish out your diffuser from whatever drawer you threw it in when you first bought your hairdryer. The prongs work with the hot air to help bring out your curl and create plenty of natural volume 

  • Rollers.

    For big hair, there’s a classic styling trick – Velcro rollers. Hold sections of hair taut and starting from the end, wrap around each roller under, towards your roots before securing with pins. Heat each roller briefly with a warm hairdryer before leaving to cool for as long as possible. When you’re ready unwind each section, being careful to twist in the direction of the curl to maintain the shape, for a classically glamorous big-hair look
