52-year old Sherri Silver, originally from Brooklyn, has the kind of lush, voluminous hair that most women crave. Too bad it doesn’t come naturally to 99.99999999 percent of us. That’s why hairstylists have developed these tricks.
__1.__Move your blowout out of the bathroom. After a nice, long, steamy shower, it’s practically a sauna in there with all that humidity. And that humidity is going to cause frizz, no matter how pain- stakingly you blow out your hair. Bedroom, living room, kitchen: Blow your hair out anywhere but your bathroom.
__2.__Condition before you shampoo. That’s right, go rogue and hit reverse. For hair to be bouncy, it has to be free of any and all residue. The conditioner will soften your hair, and shampoo washes away extra oils and leftover products and actually causes each and every hair strand to swell a little (a bonus, because it makes you look like you have a lot more hair).
__3.__Grab some volumizing mousse and work it into damp hair from roots to midlength. (You’ll need more than you think: For shoulder-length hair, use a lemon-size blob; for longer hair, go with a baseball-size blob).
__4.__Remove the nozzle from your dryer (that’ll give your hair more volume), and rough dry with your head upside down. Once your hair is mostly dry, flip your head back up, put the nozzle back on, and do a proper blowout with a large round boar- or plastic-bristle brush.
__5.__Break out the large-barrel hot rollers. (Don’t have them? Well, get some. They’re one of our favorite stylers of the moment.) Create five even sections of hair (three from front to back and one above each ear) and roll your hair up. It helps to lift each section toward the ceiling and roll down. Once the curlers are completely cool, take them out, shake out your hair with your fingers, and you’re ready to roll.
