How to get your hair to reach its full potential

It's a truth universally acknowledged that we want what we don't have. So for those women with naturally thick, luscious hair, carry on. For everyone else, read on to discover how you can help your hair hit new heights.

START WITH THE RIGHT SHAMPOO

Your quest for bigger hair starts in the shower. Don't just use any old shampoo and conditioner; do that, and all the volumising styling products that follow won't work like they're supposed to. Build the best foundation with shampoos and conditioners that boost body without weighing down roots (this often means the conditioner will be lighter and contain fewer moisturising ingredients).

We recommend: Green People Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo & Conditioner

TREAT HAIR TO A TREATMENT

Every so often, hair will need a shot of something to keep it on the right (and healthy) track. Whether that's a volumizing mask for mid-lengths and ends, or a clarifying or strengthening treatment for scalp and roots, using them regularly can help hair look and feel healthier, and keep strands strong – essential if you want to boost volume.

Try: Weleda Revitalizing Hair Tonic

LEARN TO LOVE MOUSSE AGAIN

If the last time you used mousse was in the last century, you're going to be pleasantly surprised. Modern mousses do everything they should – add volume and texture, plus hold so hair retains a style (we can't go past Sebastian Mousse Forte) – and nothing they shouldn't, namely, leave strands feeling sticky, dry or crunchy. Work through damp hair, from roots all the way down through mid-lengths and ends, and then blast with a blow-dryer, using either a brush or your hands to enhance volume.
