Hair Mask

Create a DIY hair mask or purchase off-the-shelf hair mask to achieve a bouncy hair. Finish off with a leave-in conditioner for that extra movement of your tresses. A deep conditioning mask revives dry hair and adds moisture as well as bounce. 

How to make a hair mask:

Mix four teaspoons of fresh Aloe Vera gel with three teaspoon of honey and five teaspoons of coconut oil.
Work it well into the hair; allow it to sit pretty for half an hour and then wash off with shampoo.

Hot Rollers

This might sound old school, but it’s a sure fire way to achieve big bouncy hair at home.

How To:

After washing your hair and applying setting lotion and/or mousse, partition the hair into sections and roll up. This will take a little time, so if you have chores then now is the right time to get it done as you wait for the hair to dry up completely. After carefully taking off the rollers, apply setting hair spray to make curls last longer then style hair with fingers to desired preference.

How To:

After detangling your hair, spritz a little bit of water or mousse to keep it slightly damp. Split your hair into sections, pick a section of hair and twirl until spiral looking, then loop the strand into itself and tuck in with bobby pins. This is better done overnight to retain curls but if done during the day. 5-6 hours would do the magic especially after the hair is completely dry. If you want to achieve big bouncy hair at home without stress, this is your best bet.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is a  great time saving option to achieving big bouncy hair at home. It cleans your hair without getting it wet and adds extra volume to the roots, thus, making your hair appear fuller. 

Apply Some Heat

How To:

After washing your tresses, apply heat protectant and any other hair moisturizing and volumizing product that works for you. Section your hair and blow dry section by section. Finish off with setting spray.
