va-va-volume

I posted this on the general hair discussion board but wanted to put it here as well:

I have fine thin 3a-ish hair. Any tips on how to get the most volume without inviting frizz? I've finally accepted that my hair can get big, and now, I want it even bigger

shorter layers! my hair is much bigger now!
One thing that helps me is Gelebration, which really enhances my curl and is easy to get where I need it. Another is plopping -- without that I have much less volume. And the third thing I do is when I flip my hair over to plop, I rake my fingers through the few inches of my hair near the scalp, to loosen it up. It makes a big difference. I have tried raking all the way to the ends, but it makes my hair TOO big. Since you're looking for bigness, you may like that technique!

The right gel, haircut, and plopping all will you get more volume, but to a certain extent there's not a whole lot you can do. My hair is really flat on top; the only way to get more volume is to cut my hair until it's at least shoulder length. This means sacrificing my current length, which is "bra strap" length, and returning to the dreaded "pyramid head".

This doesn't sound optimistic, but I have learned to like and appreciate my hair in its current...state, for lack of a better word. An actual useful tip that I will pass on is this: After diffusing, I usually pin my hair up with several butterfly/claw clips, creating an updo that lifts the hair at my roots. If I wear my hair up all day, it can "set", and when I take it down at night it has the perfect amount of lift that I need.
