DIY Hair: Soft & Natural

How to get hair that expands and volumises.

The most important step in recreating this look is prepping the hair.

Step 1: Shampoo the hair with KMS California Hair Play Texture Shampoo and condition with KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray. This will bring out the volume and texture in the hair.

Step 2: Towel dry the hair and spray with KMS California Curl Up Bounce Back Spray. Work this into the hair to encourage texture and curl.

Step 3: Flip hair upside down and blow-dry using a diffuser. With your hands, scrunch dry the hair to encourage as much volume and curl as possible. 

Step 4: When the hair is almost dry, flip back up and apply a light spray of KMS California Curl Up Bounce Back Spray onto the top layers. Push into place and let the hair completely dry naturally — this helps set the texture.

Step 5: Brush hair with a Mason Pearson or Denman hairbrush. This will cause it to expand and volumise, creating a light fluffy effect.
