Default I need volume!

I'm in serious need of volume! So I'm guessing mousse would be the way to go? But I would need some kind of cream-based leave-in underneath, I'm guessing, because my hair is naturally very dry.

I see some #bs and #cs like Joico JoiWhip and Paul Mitchell and a few others. But most have said they didn't notice any changes in volume from using it...and some implied they were happy there was no increased volume.

Well, I WANT volume!!! But no dryness. What would you suggest? I don't think pinning w/ clips and bobby pins would help me too much because my hair is on the longer side...and I don't really know how to do it. I'd be willing to learn but I'd prefer a volume-enhancing product. CG-friendly, please.

I got a ton of volume from Joiwhip. Not exactly what I was looking for which is why I don't use it.

I get more volume from LOOB. It was unintended, but kinda cool.

No matter how hard you try to hide them, your inner curls will always come out. Why not make them look good?
