    Salt spray have been known to be good for this, but if you suffer from dry hair that can be an issue.

    Try tipping your head upside down in the morning and ruffling up your curls. Also, what's your styling method after washing? Because this count have an effect on how flat or big your hair is.

    I have tight curls which lends to more body but I have seen it decline as my hair gets longer. On my dry hair I hold my head upside down and give a gentle little tug downward. It gives lift to my crown area. Some people use a pick for lift. But honestly the best way for me to get more volume is not washing as much. That is why I looooovvveee my second and third day hair. Way bigger hair than day one.:wav:
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    Keeping it shorter around the crown and the top of the head in general has made a difference for me. Layers really lift the weight off the hair and that can create body :D

    I also agree w/BB that some of how much lift you get depends on your general routine.
