How Do You Add Volume To Flat Hair?
Flat hair is so last season and Amit’s trick for va-va-voom volume? Flip your parting and dry your hair in the opposite direction. Then, sculpt with a strong hold clay or wax, working from your roots to the tips. It’s like a push-up bra for your hair!
We recommend the GK Hair Taming System Shaping Wax that is nourishing AND controls frizz as well as flyaways.
What’s Better: Air Drying Or Using Heat On Your Hair?
Blow dryers can be frenemies. Love the style, hate the damage? Amit’s fix: remove all the excess moisture with a towel, then blow dry your hair until it’s 80% dry with cold air setting. For the rest 20%, add heat for smoothness and shine, but always use heat protection.
Two of our go-to heat protectants are the Schwarzkopf Professional Gliss Total Hair Repair Heat Protection Spray and the Organic R/S Root Stimulator Olive Oil Heat Protection Serum.
When I Style My Oily/Thin Hair It Makes My Scalp Show! What Do I Do?

It’s all about finding what works for your unique texture and scalp conditions. He also recommends using a scalp scrub once in a while to remove the flakiness!
