"First off, the easiest and quickest solution to overcome any hair problem is to include the right products in your hair arsenal. Ensure that these are picked out carefully by you to cater to your hair and scalp type, as well as combat specific weather concerns," states Adhuna.
1. Hair Care Begins in the Shower
"An excessively oily scalp tends to weigh your hair down, causing it to appear flat and limp. This is where using the right kind of shampoo can do wonders," says Adhuna. Arm yourself with BBLUNT’s Full On Volume Shampoo, specially designed to give fine hair incredible volume and lift, while retaining its essential moisture. Take a coin-size amount of the shampoo in your palm and gently massage it onto your scalp. It is enriched with rice protein and lathers well, leaving the hair feeling incredibly soft and looking smooth and shiny. You may also choose to pair the shampoo with the Full On Volume Conditioner that not only rejuvenates and protects every stand of your hair, but also gives it the desired bounce!

2. You Are What You Eat
Do you believe in the phrase, 'You are what you eat'? Well if you didn't, you should now. Consumption of a healthy, nutritious diet, along with maximum liquid intake is key to a healthy scalp. "Fresh, seasonal summer fruits and veggies, that are enriched with protein and other vitamins and minerals, make for a much-needed balanced diet to promote healthy hair," says Adhuna. Essential fatty acids, especially omega-3s, go a long way in determining the health of your skin, hair, and nails. An absence or lack of these vital nutrients in your diet are bound to show up in the form of unhealthy, problem-ridden hair.
3. Scalp Massages
Massaging your scalp regularly will certainly ensure better hair health and will stimulate the blood flow to your scalp. For hair growth, massage your scalp in a circular motion; this can be done with or without the use of any product. Remember, healthy hair will always look thick and voluminous. Regardless of your texture and hair type, a pro-hack is a deep conditioning treatment to keep your tresses looking well-nourished. "An easy at-home solution is to begin by cleansing your scalp with a shampoo and then massaging your conditioner, kneading the product up to the mid-lengths of your hair. Following this, wrap a hot towel on your hair for 15 minutes. This allows the product to penetrate to the hair shafts, giving you soft, smooth, and manageable hair," she adds.
4. A Brushing Hair Hack
Were you aware that brushing your hair in the opposite direction to which you normally do is a great to add volume? After a shower, let your hair dry naturally. Once dry, brush your hair back in the direction you regularly part it. This hack helps you fake a fuller look, giving an illusion of a voluminous mane.
5. Add a Volumising Spray to Your Styling Regimen
The BBLUNT Blown Away Volumizing Leave-in-Spray fulfills two jobs in one spritz. Not only does it protect your hair from damage caused by heat styling, but also locks in the volume that we all desire. "If big hair is your thing, this is your go-to product, and it’s super easy to use! All you have to do is flip your hair upside down and spray the product all over your slightly-damp towel dried hair, focusing at the roots. You may leave your hair to dry naturally or blow dry for full-blown volume. Its lightweight, fluffy, and airy formula doesn’t weigh your hair down or leave the scalp looking oily one bit," says Adhuna.
