Sweater weather is here, which means we’re scooping up cozy knits—and kicking up our hair care routine. Why? Cooler temps bring dry air that robs hair of volume, leaving strands limp and lifeless. Not to mention static, humidity’s clingy fall counterpart. Luckily, it’s easy to keep your locks voluminous, shiny and static-free—all fall and winter long! We’ve rounded up the best volumizing hair products along with a few easy styling tips.

Volume

 

If you have normal hair…

Our Voluminous Spray Hair Refresher will be your new best friend. It gives hair instant lift, which is the pièce de résistance to creating our favorite casual-cool hairstyles—think full, tousled tresses with voluminous roots and an effortless vibe perfect for day or night. Especially if your hair is fine, this spray is a simple way to boost volume in a flash.

 

Alcohol-free and USDA certified organic, this volumizing formula is made with lemongrass to add body, volume and shape memory so that it’s fast and easy to restyle hair. Add eucalyptus and lavender to the mix, and it’s the swift pick-me-up with a refreshing scent.

 

To use:

Flip wet or dry hair (you can use in between shampoos to revive strands) upside down and spray into roots. Still upside down, use your fingers to work the product into your hair and blast roots with a blow dryer. Toss hair back and style as normal. Voilà! Instant lift.

If you have normal or oily hair…

Our Voluminous Dry Shampoo will be your secret weapon. Ready to fake a blowout? This fun-to-use, editor-loved powder soaks up excess oil, sweat and debris to make it look like you just stepped out of the salon. Not only is it an excellent root volumizer, but it actually makes hair look and feel thicker!

 

Organic, food-grade cassava starch is its hero ingredient. Amazonian people have used this edible root for thousands of years, so by their standards, we’re late to the party! Cosmetic clay doubles down on this dry shampoo’s oil-absorbing powers, and star anise lightly cleans hair and leaves behind a soft, clean fragrance.

 

To use:

Twist the cap to open the dispenser, then shake and squeeze the bottle to spray the dry shampoo into roots. Use your fingertips or a comb to work the powder into hair until it’s completely absorbed. Backcomb your tresses with a fine-tooth comb to add texture and volume. Finally, leave hair full and loose, or have fun with buns, braids and up-dos (the dry shampoo creates a grip to make these styles a cinch!).

 

If you have fine hair…

Our Freestyle Texturizer will be the product of your styling dreams. It’s the key to achieving that just-rolled-out-of-bed look à la Kate Moss, messy braids and ponytails, simple topknots and more, all without using any heat.

 

Tapioca starch is what gives this plant-derived cream the ability to provide support and hold and for piecey styles. Carnauba wax completes this dynamic duo of hold, while Rahua and Palo Santo oils fortify strands and create a soothing aromatherapy experience.

 

To use:

Pump the texturizer into your palms and rub them together—this prep will allow for easy, even distribution. Working with damp or dry hair, flip tresses over to one side and work the texturizer into the roots and the underside of hair. Flip your hair back over, and working in small sections, apply to the ends only, twisting and working into strands as you go. The result is a piecey texture you can then leave loose or freestyle to your heart’s content.

 

Bonus tip: Our Voluminous Dry Shampoo is one of the best products for fine hair because it adds thickness. Use it alone or in tandem with the Freestyle Texturizer.
