Yes, check it out. That is the craziest flat iron ever, the Voloom. Well, obviously it isn’t a flat iron, there’s no way that it will create silky straight hair. In fact, it is just the exact opposite. Voloom is a crimper that add “volume pockets”, specially crimped areas of hair, to add tons of volume to your hair. Exactly where you want it, sans product, and it lasts for days.
The secret really is in the shape of those volume pockets. People have been doing this for years with regular crimpers, but the zig zag pattern tends to align itself and go flat after a while.
Voloom is pretty easy to use, just clip the upper layers of your hair out of the way, they even give you great crocodile hair clips to get that job done. Voloom can be set to any temp you want with the +/- buttons, and you’ll see the current temp in the digital display. Above is what the hair looks like when you’ve crimped it.
Here’s a quick look at my before and after. Yes, I have a ton of hair, and I’ve just roughly blow dried my hair, so I have quite a bit of volume already (don’t be fooled, that volume will weigh itself down within a few hours #toomuchhair). After my hair has a lot more volume. I could move to Texas and not be embarrassed by my flat hair. (Is that true about Texas? I’ve really never been there, but I’m going to believe that the stereotype is right.)
This extra volume is a lot more than I see with a dry shampoo, it can last for a few days and I can put it wherever I want. It definitely helps me add a day or two to a hair washing, something that is really important to this mommy of a newborn! (Hence, I’m looking a little tired here. Don’t mind me, I took these pics after a few *very* rough nights, not even my super high coverage concealer could help me!)
