Real bad flatness issues

okay, well my hair, seems to be very flat. it literally has no volume, okay its not like plastered down to my skull but yeah. i think it's because i need a haircut, like it has no style but my ends seem healthy enough, so i dont want to go for a haircut as im growing my hair, and it be a ridiculous price, and there doesnt seem to be many curly hair stylists in england anyway.

anyway, on to the question. how can i get volume? please dont suggest things like clipping as i really want my hair routine to be very simple, literally like 3 minutes styling. is there a particular parting that encourages volume? i wear mine in side and well yeah...i was thinking no part as i think that looks really good with curly hair. how do you train your hair into having no part? whenever i try, it always finds its way into some sort of offline centre part...suggestions? thanks

    Do you wash upside down? Do you apply products upside down? Do you diffuse upside down?

    This all could help a lot.

    I do all this things (except the diffuse, because i don't diffuse my hair) and my hair is still flat, like in my picture. I just want to get some volume without cut my hair... or get layers would be the only way?

    I agree with aqualily ...DO EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN and yes maybe get a hair cut with lots of layers I have issues with flat hair too Im not sure how similar our hair flatness is lol but all I can recommend is that u diffuse upside down, put the clips in and diffuse with the clips n your hair and get layers , I also always have to shake my hair out throughout the day , I FEEL UR PAIN :(
