I have very thick long hair. If I try to get volume in general, my hair ends up BIG and if I just do my hair normal and try to get volume at the top only, it ends up flat after a little bit of time. How do you apply mouse or a volumizing spray to achieve the volume? Everytime I put mouse in my hands and run it through the top of my hair I feel like I am only getting it on top of the hair and not at the actual roots. Side swept bangs...the hairdresser can make my bangs look great and side swept but when I dry them they become too flat. Or I try doing them w/ a round brush and they end up curly and don't follow with the front lines of my hair so then Ill whip out the straightening iron and try that then they are too straight. Any suggestions would be great.
