Big Idea

While most volumizers are designed to add body and height to lifeless locks, there are those that contain a little something extra, like this standout crew. ✂ —Eloise Giegerich

TIGI Delivering lightweight volume, TIGI Bed Head Motor Mouth gives fine hair an extra boost of body and style. Featuring volume boosters and a turbo shine injection to produce a high-gloss finish, the product ensures a fuller appearance and better grip for blow-drying. With a large dose of conditioners, Motor Mouth works to smooth the surface and improve manageability.
BONUS: Features Tinopal, a glow shot that absorbs and emits UV light to make hair shine bright

Pureology Perfect for color-treated hair, Colour Stylist Lustrous Volumizer from Pureology is a moldable, alcohol-free thickening gel that gives body and bounce while preserving color, adding shine and imparting high hold. Ideal for hair in need of an extra kick of volume, especially at the roots, the Lustrous Volumizer will give a bombshell, red-carpet-ready look.
BONUS: Contains natural xylose to protect hair against heat damage

Verb For a clean, all-natural option, opt for Full Body + Weightless Lift Volume Spray from Verb. Paraben-, gluten-, sulfate- and cruelty-free, the spray amplifies fine hair for a full and flexible finish. While hydrolyzed quinoa protein works to naturally condition and smooth locks, sunflower seed extract provides UV protection and guards against dryness, fading color and brassiness.
BONUS: Incorporates hydrolyzed vegetable keratin and a specially patented copolymer to build volume and provide pliable, natural hold

GKhair Providing instant body without excess residue and buildup, new VolumizeHer from GKhair works to thicken each individual strand, starting from the roots and moving to the mid-shafts and ends. Decadent coconut fruit conditioners act as natural emollients, deeply moisturizing and leaving locks silky smooth.
BONUS: Juvexin, the brand’s unique protein blend, restores strands from the inside out, returning hair to a more youthful state and providing lasting protection against environmental aggressors.

Bumble and bumble Cover all the bases with 3-in-1 Prêt-à-Powder from Bumble and bumble. Equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volumizer, this ultrafine, loose and translucent powder is easy to use on all hair types, colors and textures, while its new modern formula, which includes microfine silica for styling grip, extends the life of blow-outs.
BONUS: Features a special blend of clay and oat flour to provide invisible, dry cleaning

Oribe With the power of aloe leaf juice, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray hydrates locks while creating volume. Also included are kiwi and passion flower extracts that help maintain moisture and protect color; ginger root extract to promote circulation and add shine; humectants and hydrolyzed wheat protein to repair; and pro-vitamin B5 to thicken and condition.
BONUS: Uses zeolite crystallines, which behave like tiny sponges to absorb and trap dirt, oils and odor

Wella Professionals Offering body, definition, straightening, shine and touchable hold, Extra Volume Styling Mousse from Wella Professionals gives the artistic freedom to craft indulgent movement and variation. With its innovative, medium- to strong-hold formula, the multipurpose mousse is ideal for both avant-garde and classic styles, while leaving hair—even fine strands—glossy and controlled. Plus, it gives roots a lift.
BONUS: Polyquaternium provides strong hold while panthenol acts as a shine booster.

All-Nutrient Rich with the essential nutrients required to make hair thicker and healthier, Volumize Conditioner from All-Nutrient ensures hair is treated with the utmost care. Quinoa and keratin proteins help rebuild polypeptide chains to add texture to fine, lifeless hair, while natural raspberry extract works to fuse vitamins A, B5, E and F with ginkgo, effectively rejuvenating lackluster hair and revitalizing the scalp.
BONUS: Rainforest buriti fruit oils increase fullness and shine.
