I have exceptionally fine hair (the kind you can pin all up with one bobby pin!) so needless to say, I’m on the constant search for products that will add volume without weight (or that icky product-heavy residue). I’ve found a perfect antidote to my flat hair woes in TRESemmé’s revolutionary Beauty-Full Volume collection—so much so that after shooting this tutorial, I legitimately got 3 compliments on the street on my hair (ask Alicia, she was there) and that really and truly never happens. So without further ado, discover what makes this hair system so special and how I use it to achieve voluminous beachy waves after the jump!
First of all, we’ve got to address how TRESemmé’s completely taken the traditional system and flipped it on its head: you condition first, and shampoo second. It’s so simple yet so genius—the problem for so many of us trying to achieve volume and body is that conditioning second inevitably leaves residue and weighs hair down. By conditioning first and shampooing second, you’re still getting the moisture you need but doing so without losing the body.
After I conditioned using a couple pumps for my medium-long length hair (and then, of course, shampooed) I applied a dime-sized amount of the Hair Maximizer and combed through, following up with a pump of the Touchable Bounce Mousse. As soon as I started blowing out my hair with a round brush, I could already feel the body and volume—I would’ve been totally happy with this bouncy blowout already, but adding some quick curls in with my flat iron and finishing off with the Flexible Finish Hairspray gave me the beachy waves I always love. I always love to finish off by tossing my hair over and doing two spritzes of hairspray near the nape of my neck, letting it dry before I toss my hair back to get full volume.

This look literally lasted all day for me and all I had to do was touch up with the flat iron and hairspray again the next day—two day hair achieved! Not an easy feat for me and my fine hair.
