How It Works
Voloom works by creating kinks or crimps in your hair, but you are supposed to keep the top and front layers free from such kinks so that they rest on top and hide it. The imprint is what the company calls the volume pockets, what make the big imprints on your hair. Patent pending plates create the kinks, or hidden volume, that make your hair look fuller.
How it's Different from Competitors
This tool is not a crimper because it has plates scientifically engineered to create volume without leaving the crimp imprint in your hair all day. There might be a small imprint if you are using a high setting or leaving it on too long but most of the time it is not visible. Alternating platforms with beveled edges bend your hair gently so that it looks naturally full of volume rather than lifted.
How to Use (Step by Step)
- Move the Top Layer
Voloom should not be used on the top layer of hair. Use it on the under layers, then cover it with the top layers.
- Remove Front
Part your hair normally. Section the top layer and clip it off to the side. Take a strand of hair that frames the face and clip it off to the side too.
- Clamp Down on Layers
Grab the next layer, clamp down away from the scalp, and release the tool quickly. Work your way down the hair, watching as it leaves a clamp mark. The severity of the clamp mark will fade as your hair cools, and will not be as noticeable once covered by the top layer. Clamp down on your hair only long enough to say the word “voloom” out loud. Repeat two to four times down the shaft of the hair.
- Work Each Side and Finish
When done, clip the finished layer to the other side. Now, repeat this same process on the net layer of hair. More layers treated with this process will equal more volume received, as such you control volume with the number of layers. Unclip the hair on this side and let it cool. After, repeat the process on the other side and on the back of the hair if you want. Go from eye level to chin level and enjoy the added height, grip, and volume. Shake it, then style it as usual.
Tips & Tricks
- Experiment With Temperature
Experiment with it to find the ideal temperature. Digital controls and readouts make it easy to find and choose the right temperature. When you are first using it, however, start off with a lower temperature than what you think you will need until you really get the hang of things. If you do not want a lot of heat, select the lower heat options and then just hold it on your hair for a slightly longer period of time. Figure out what works best for you.
- Ideal Setting
For thin, fine, or damaged hair, the best temperature setting is three hundred twenty to three hundred fifty degrees. Normal, medium, or healthy hair should have a heat setting of three hundred fifty to three hundred seventy degrees. Thick, coarse, or curly hair should use three hundred seventy to three hundred ninety degrees.
- Volume Control
To control the size of the layers of volume, change how much you section on or off. For more volume, try sectioning off thinner under layers. These will stack up to give you more volume. For less volume, section off fewer layers but do them thicker.
- Side Part
If you wear a side part, do fewer layers on the side with more hair so that the volume levels match on either side.
If you want to create volume at the crown, make a section of hair a few inches wide at the top of the head. Hold the section straight up from your hair and using a temperature twenty degrees lower than normal, clamp down near the scalp. Avoid clamping down entirely. Instead, hold the position for one or two sections and unclamp. For the innermost part of the section in the center of your head, you will see little texture.
- Only Adds Volume
This unit is not a straightener or a curling iron. Do not try to use it to style your hair the way you would with either. Also, it is not a crimper so it will not work to leave the stylish crimp marks in your hair in the same way so do not count on it for that either. Understand that this tool does not dry your hair, style your hair, or otherwise improve its health. All it does it add pockets of volume to your hair.
- Dirty Hair
As hair becomes oily or dirty, it will start to fall flat. Rather than washing on the second or third day, use this tool to try and smooth out cowlicks, fluff flat spots, and create fuller looks.
- Dry Shampoos
Dry shampoos work well with this tool, but other shampoos can interfere with how well it works.
If you live in an area with hot and humid climates you will find it challenging to use this tool. Damp hair, sweating, can all change the structure and cause any volume to fall flat. You might need finishing sprays or humidity blocking products to help combat this.
Should you get too much texture, brush your hair with the included hair brush to make it less visible. Try a thicker layer on top. Alternatively, try using a lower temperature. Avoid clamping down entirely when you are holding the plates together. Just holding them together without clamping completely gives you less texture. Finally, use a flatiron to smooth out any problems that you do not want.
If you want even more volume, try getting closer to your roots. Raise the temperature slightly until you get the imprint you really want on your hair. Make adjustments of five to ten degrees at a time until you find the setting you want. Hold the voloom tool on your hair for a longer period of time. Use gel, mousse, or hair spray to try and hold the volume. Tease your hair with the included teasing hair brush before you use the tool on your hair.
