Well, it's all in the technique. These simple tips will help you in achieving bigger, more voluminous natural hair.
Do your regular twist out routine to stretch hair. My favorite as you all know is the flat twist method.
Ensure that hair is COMPLETELY dry before taking down twists. Drier hair equals more stretch and defined hair.
Blow dry roots by using the tension method for super stretched coils. The tension technique is quite simple if executed correctly. Grab your blow drier and attach the nozzle. Starting from the back of your head grab a medium size section of hair and blast low heat on just your roots while gently pulling hair away from head. This creates the tension the hair needs to stretch and gives the illusion of more hair!
Proceed to do this to entire head until complete. After blow drying roots, grab a wide tooth shower comb, flip hair upside down and gently comb through roots ONLY to add even more volume. Use the "picking" technique as if you had an afro. Do not disturb the entire curl pattern as you will end up with disheveled, frizzy hair. Only pick the root of your hair.
Flip hair back up and shake from side to side to allow curls to naturally fall in place. Hair will appear bigger, fluffier and 10 times more voluminous!

My hair is naturally thick, however, I still LOVE to use this technique to achieve bigger hair. This would work perfectly for someone who has finer more dense hair.
