How To Get Definition Without Sacrificing Volume

Start On Clean And Conditioned Hair 

MICHE Shampoo and Conditioner

Any successful natural hairstyle starts with clean hair. And specifically if your goal is definition, you’re gonna want your strands clean and clear of any dirt, excess oil or product. And a good conditioner can help to re-moisturize your strands after the wash. We recommend our DETOX Clarifying & Detoxifying Shampoo and our PRIME Smoothing & Detangling Conditioner for a smooth and moisturized finish. 

Use A Good Defining Gel Or Mousse 

The secret to good definition while maintaining volume is keeping your products as lightweight as possible. Product layering is crucial, but what’s just as crucial is using the right products with the right technique. It may take some trial and error to figure out what locks moisture into your hair and isn’t excessively heavy or greasy. One thing you’ll definitely need is a good defining gel or cream. We recommend our SET Curl Defining Mousse or our SCULPT Curl Defining Gel

Dry Using A Diffuser

There are a few ways to dry your natural hair but the absolute best method for great definition and volume is using a diffuser. A diffuser helps dry your hair without disrupting your curl pattern and creating unnecessary frizz. One great technique is to turn your head upside down and dry your hair that way. This way, your strands won’t dry flat against your head. 


Oil Your Hands And Fluff Carefully 

It’s very important that you don’t do this until your hair is completely dry. Once it is, coat your hands in an oil of your choosing. We recommend our POLISHED Hair & Scalp Oil. Once your hands are coated, gently fluff and separate your curls until you get your desired volume. Don’t over do it!
