When it comes to hair pegs, you know you can always count on your favorite celebs for put-together locks, models for their low maintenance off-duty 'dos, and the French girls for their perfectly undone tresses. But let's face it, while they're pretty to look at, salon-worthy hair is not easy to come by—especially with a mountain pile of readings you need to catch up on. But here's a little secret, Candy Girls, it is possible to achieve soft, shiny, and bouncy hair every day! And what's even cooler is that it won't take too much of your time to do so and it won't break the bank either. Keep scrolling to find out how!

Rely on a trusty sea salt spray.

Don't be confused, Candy Girls, sea salt spray is not the same as your usual hair spray! Sea salt sprays are known to add a ton of volume to the hair with just a few spritz and you won't even have to worry about possible hair damage because the ingredients are natural and good for your hair! There are various ways of using this nifty hair product, but here's our go-to trick: after you take a bath at night (provided that you use a shampoo that is not too drying or harsh), wait for you hair to dry at least 60%, then spritz a few sea salt spray to your hair. Tie your hair and leave it on overnight and wake up to volumize

Go upside down!

One quick way to add volume to you hair? Dry your hair upside down! Just face down as you air dry your hair. Make sure to brush your hair against its natural direction for maximum volume.


Tease your roots.

It's no secret that teasing your tresses is an easy way to achieve volume. But always start with the roots to maintain control over how much volume you want. Remember not to pull your hair too hard to avoid any hair damage.

Scrunch it up before you hit the sack.

Love braiding your hair? Rock trendy braids while you doze off and wake up to instant beachy waves the next day. Make sure that the braids are not too tight to avoid unwanted headaches the next morning.

Skip the brush (at the ends only!).

Some beauty girls claim that it's not actually necessary to brush or comb your hair. Although we wouldn't go as far as ditching our brushes completely, for extra volume, use your brush to comb through your roots only. Otherwise, just finger comb your tresses.
