1. Try backcombing
The simplest way to apply more volume to your hairstyle is by teasing or backcombing. This is where you comb the hair backward at the root to create more volume.
2. Use densifying spray
Applying a densifying spray can help your hair have more hold when you style it and give you more volume at the root.
3. Change your part
When your hair sits in the same spot day after day for too long it becomes used to that area. Switching your part will help the hair have more lift at the root.

4. Use rollers
Applying rollers to your hair can help give it body and volume. Apply large rollers to avoid adding too much curl.
5. Flip your head
Hanging your head upside down when washing and drying can help the hairs have more lift and give you more volume.
6. Add dry shampoo
Even if your hair isn’t dirty, a spritz of dry shampoo can help to give it more hold and stiffen the root for more volume.
7. Use mousse
Apply mousse to wet hair for added volume and body. If you have curly red hair, mousse is a great way to define your curls.
8. Try a round brush
Give yourself an at-home blowout and instantly add volume, body, and texture to your hair when you blow-dry with a round brush.
9. Get a trim
Most redheads have thick hair, and your hair might be weighing you down. Try getting a trim, getting it thinned, or even making a big chop to help hair bounce back at the root.
