You can amp up the volume of your hair with a flat iron. Yes, you read that right. All you have to do is straighten your hair in small sections in an upward direction. Running the flat iron against the natural direction of the hair makes your roots stand up, pumping up the volume in seconds.

Sleeping on your flat hair can make them limp and even flatter in the morning. To add oomph to your mane and add a wavy texture, sleep with a twisted updo.
