Just because you have afro hair, doesn’t mean you don’t want it to look full and healthy.
Particularly if your hair is relaxed, it can sometimes hang limp and flat so adding volume can give it that much needed oomph.
We asked celebrity hair stylist and make up artist Darren Scott the best way to add volume to afro hair:
Starting with hair that is already straight (see tips on how to do that here) use the ‘O’ rollers by Cloud Nine to create volume and lift. ‘O’ rollers are heated rollers that take less than 4 seconds to heat up and are cool to touch so should not burn your fingers. The rollers have an indicator on them to let you know when to take them out. Red means hot (time to put in) and black means cool (time to take out).
The size of rollers you use determines the amount of volume you’ll see; try large rollers for long hair and small rollers on short hair. If you use the right size rollers, you will add volume to your hair.
Heat the rollers then place on your head you want to create volume. Once in gently mist with Cloud Nine ‘O’ Amplifier Spray (£12.95) to help set your style. Leave them in until the indicator is black (cool).
Remove the rollers and style as desired leaving a fresh look with volume and body. Try some of these:
