just as my subject line states: I WANT IT BIGGER O_o ... Volume that is... I love volume and I would like to know what products or styling tips some of u might have to help me achieve this ... I already use a diffuser, clips, so what else can I do???
Have you tried products that say extra body or "volumizing"? Deva makes a volumizing foam that is cg, and I believe there are also drugstore versions that are very good. Check out the products reviews section on this website and check off volumizing and you'll get great recommendations.

Let us know what you get and how it works for you.

ETA I think in general, mousse is supposed to be good for adding volume. Also, do a search - this is a hot topic and lots of us want it biggerrrr
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

U know i havent tried those types of products because im afraid they wont work and it'll be a waste of money... I tried a "root lifter" once and seen no difference maybe the shampoo an conditioners work? I was thinkng about trying mousses too ... And if i find something I will put up a post
I agree that root lifters don't work - at least they didn't work for me. I think it's a gimmick. I mean, how would the stuff in the bottle know whether it's your roots or your ends that are being targeted?

I've had a little success with using a mix of volumizing mousse and water on my fingertips and kind of "scrubbing" the roots of my hair to distribute it, after my hair is dry. It seems to give me some lift.

I think plopping helps with my volume. It sort of smushed the hair like an accordion which I think makes it a bit more bouncy
My hair: 3b, corkicelli, medium porosity, medium texture, medium/thick density

Co-wash: DevaCurl NoPoo
Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: KCKT, Suave Naturals Coconut, or my rinse-out!
Gel: SS FHG (my new HG!!)... I also like HESMU, AIF, CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP and the occasional LALSG

Likes: Plopping!
Dislikes: Glycerin

CG and loving it!
Weight can be a curl assassin. The longer the hair is, the easier it succumbs to gravity. Layers provide an instant lift. The shorter the layers, the more volume. Even long layers give better volume than long hair that's all one length.
3b/c?

@curlpearl
Thanks ill try this what mousses would u recommend? I in between coarse and fine hair it is thick

@jacyln
Ive tried that method and the curls came out funny ... im going to try it again

@Korkscrew
I know :/ my poor layers are just about grown out and unfortunately being a broke college student i dont have the time nor the funds to do this lol but as soon as I do I will get a cut
I've tried volumizing shampoos and conditioners, but they leave my hair feeling coated and I lose curl. Can't find any I can use. Mousse really has helped me though! I'm rotating the ones in my signature with success. The Suave isn't CG, but I get the best results from it so I use it when my hair needs to look great. Please let us know if you find one that works for you!

Dry it upside down. Whether I do my hair curly or straight, if I dry upside down, I get more volume.

I have a wavy bob, so volume is my best friend. :-)

I have had really good luck with Beyond Zone Noodle Head Curling Mousse.

I put about 2-3 handfuls schrunched into wet hair. Then I add a bit of LALSG for increased hold. Then I pixie diffuse upside down. I get good volume this way, oh, and when I got more layers added, that helped a TON.
