When it comes to hair pegs, you know you can always count on your favorite celebs for put-together locks, models for their low maintenance off-duty 'dos, and the French girls for their perfectly undone tresses. But let's face it, while they're pretty to look at, salon-worthy hair is not easy to come by. Here's a secret: it's possible to achieve soft, shiny, and bouncy hair every day! And what's even cooler is that it won't take too much of your time to do so and it won't break the bank either. Keep scrolling to find out how!
1. Rely on a trusty sea salt spray.
Sea salt sprays are known to add a ton of volume to the hair with just a few spritzes, and you won't even have to worry about possible hair damage because the ingredients are natural and good for your hair! There are various ways of using this nifty hair product, but here's our go-to trick: after taking a night shower (sans any kind of drying shampoo, of course), wait for your hair to dry at least 60%, before putting a few spritzes of sea salt spray to your hair. Tie your hair and leave it on overnight to wake up to volumized locks!

2. Go upside down!
One quick way to add volume to you hair? Dry your hair upside down! To do this, just face down as you air dry your hair, like you're preparing for a massive hair flip. Make sure to brush your hair against its natural direction for maximum volume.
3. Tease your roots.
It's no secret that teasing your tresses is an easy way to achieve volume. But always start with the roots to maintain control over how much volume you want. Remember not to pull your hair too hard to avoid any hair damage.
4. Braid them before you hit the sack.
Love braiding your hair? Rock trendy braids while you doze off and wake up to instant beachy waves the next day. Make sure that the braids are not too tight to avoid unwanted headaches the next morning.
5. Skip the brush (at the ends only!).
Some beauty girls claim that it's not actually necessary to brush or comb your hair. Although we wouldn't go as far as ditching our brushes completely, for extra volume, use your brush to comb through your roots only. The rest of your locks will be fine with a bit of finger combing.
