Root Crimping For Instant Hair Volume

Anyone with thin, fine strands is always looking for tricks to make strands look fatter and fulled.

One trick professional hairdressers may use is to build in hidden crimps underneath the top layers.

Why?  The crimps are carefully positioned on the layer closest to the scalp.  Then the top hair is lightly backcombed and then smoothed over the crimps.

The crimped hair is created with either a hot crimper, curling iron positioned to add a crimp or with rollers.

The benefit of adding crimps is that it acts as a sort of foundation to pump up finer top strands.   Crimps function in the same way as backcombing except less likely to fall due to the profile of the finished hot design.

Of course you can enhance the crimps even further by pulling out all volumizing stops with volume building shampoo, volumizing root spray and any other styling tools which help build in hair fatness.
