I try to maximize volume (cause I have thinning hair due to a medical condition and being post-menopausal don't help). This means I stopped using the SuperSoaker method (a lot of big clumping means lower volume due to my non-dense hair).
Volume for my hair means getting AIR IN THERE and using products and cleansers that moisturize my dry hair without weighing it down unduly. This means I do not cowash. I mostly lowpoo, occasionally outright poo. This adds volume for me....at the expense of a bit of moisture....
I have to second the comment about Spiral Solutions. Works great for me, the CEJ with a bit of FHG or in combo with some Curl junkie products.
Here is my fourth day hair on Wednesday (pics taken at my Pilates studio during/after my workout). On first day, I cleansed and rinsed out conditioned with Curl junkie. I used CJ BCLU and SS CEJ and a smidgen of SS FHG (if I use al ot of gel on the first day, I can't get many days of good hair. Less stuff day one, the better I do with volume, too.)
Get air in there--use diffusion, go upside down, stick your hand and lift roots while diffusing, keep air going in. This makes the clumps of curls get more volume. If you air dry, prolly less volume is my experience.
Pineappling definitely helps keep volume (especially root lift) during sleep. I pineapple when I do lying down/upside down Pilates moves, and my hair looks good after a workout (see pics).
I had fifth day hair that looked fine Thursday. Will wash Friday.
As you can see, despite it being 4th day hair, the CEJ and Smoothing lotion kept the clumps, and the pineappling at night kept things from getting too flat all over. I diffuse upside down and tilted left and right and use my hands to lift hair to get air into the roots....and I shake out hair to release bigger clumps to get volume. I sometimes just break clumps apart and shake my head....
