He shared that rather than using a hair dryer or rollers…

…one should be using flat irons instead!

The reason is that any moisture in the hair will weigh it down, something people with thin hair can’t afford to have while creating volume.

The effect is instantaneous. However, you should only do this on the inner side of your hair.

After you’re done creating volume using the crimper on the crown, use a flat iron to pull up the outer side of the hair.

The result is a huge boost in volume.
