Simply select the Volluma colour that most closely matches your hair colour, if in doubt, choose the darker shade. For your convenience we use the Stylist’s colour numbering standard (1 to 10) shown on the colour swatches in the shopping cart. An “R” indicates a “warmer” colour with a slight red tone.
A multi-colour application may be the best way to achieve an exact match. Apply the darker colour first and then add the lighter colour to match your existing hair. (See application notes below for complete directions)
Wash hair with Volluma Shampoo which is specially formulated to remove residues and prepare the hair for Volluma Hair Thickening spray. Ensure shampoo is thoroughly rinsed from hair. Do not use a “leave-in” conditioner as Volluma may not bond well to hair shafts – limiting its water resistant properties. Blow dry and style hair as desired – use NO styling products yet!
For All Applications - Shake Volluma vigorously for 30 seconds or so before use and then periodically between bursts. Start application approximately 1-2 cm. behind hairline to achieve a natural look. Important – Finish with Volluma Hairspray to add shine and durability and to lock in the colour.
For Long Hairstyles - lift hair and apply Volluma in short bursts at the roots, leaving top hairs with their natural colour and shine. Gently style hair between bursts with a coarse brush or wide toothed comb to keep hair manageable and the hairstyle looking smooth and natural. Repeat application until the desired hair fullness is achieved. Apply desired styling products such as waxes or gels and finish with hairspray.
For Short Hairstyles - Spray in short bursts onto thinning areas holding can approximately 20 cm from hair gently styling with a coarse comb or brush. Repeat the application until the desired hair fullness is achieved. Apply desired styling products such as waxes or gels and finish with hairspray.
Many client’s preferences and specific, personal situations cause them to develop and establish their own unique procedures as they gain experience applying Volluma. Please let us know what your special techniques are so that we can share your “tips and tricks” with others
