The bigger the hair the better. I can’t help but to look twice when it came to the ladies who have massive volume. Big hair and don’t care is what it’s all about at least to me lol. It took me awhile to get to this point of embracing the volume but if you are a volume girl like me than I need to let you know about the ONE tool that will give your hair the fullness you need to rock these look.
The tool is the good ol AFRO PICK.
The afro pick has been around for ages but you might not know exactly how to use it correctly. I used to love it for a nice head scratch when I didn’t want to look all crazy patting my hair constantly because of the itch. Even though it still can be used for scratching it can also be used to give your hair the Big Hair Don’t Care Look. Once I figured out how to rock my volume without losing my curls, I fell in love with it. The video below shows you how to rock a massive volume braid out. Even though her braid out is fly what I want you to focus on is her method of picking her braid out to create the volume. This is the exact video I learned how to maximize the volume in my hair.
Side Note: The video below can apply to twist outs or braid outs.
I absolutely love Donedo’s example of using her afro pick for her braid out while also giving some style options. When picking your hair you want to focus on lifting the roots and not focusing too much on the ends . I notice that Donedo uses a comb as well when giving herself volume but I found that the afro pick works best for me since the teeth of the comb are wider. As you can see Donedo lifts at her roots and the middle of her hair. Also, If you notice when she does comb the pick through her ends she doesn’t make that her main focus. You want to be able to leave the curl and texture so do not concentrate on picking through your ends if you want to achieve this look. You can pick up an afro pick at your nearest Target in the hair section or your local beauty supply store.
