Whether your hair is naturally fine, or you’re experiencing hair loss after pregnancy (it will grow back!), get hold of these great volumising sprays, powders and lotions to plump and volumise hair instantly.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray (£21.50,

This multi-tasking spray builds unbeatable volume without ever leaving residue in the hair. Spray into damp hair and blow-dry for invisible, pumped-up hold. Or use on dry hair like a regular hairspray.

Ojon Volume Advance Thickening Spray (£20.50,

Not only gives natural-looking body, the formula contains hair-repairing oil to nourish and proteins to strengthen, plus heat protectors to leave hair glossy and shiny.

Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic Volumizing Spray (£30,

It’s refreshing to find a totally natural, organic, plant-based styling product that really works without feeling heavy in your hair. We recommend applying to damp hair before blow-drying in – it can feel a little crispy at first, but ‘disappears’ once heat styled. A great, chemical-free option during pregnancy.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Thickening Blow Dry Lotion (£5.99.

Builds serious volume, just spritz into roots (and a little through the lengths if you want extra oomph) and blow-dry to activate the formula. Leaves hair salon bouncy at a bargain price.

Wella Nioxin Diaboost (£39.99,

Formulated for thinning hair, so perfect after pregnancy if you’re experiencing ‘post-partum hair loss’. This gel-like spray weightlessly increases the thickness of each hair strand and strengthens against breakage.

Shu Uemura Art of Hair Volume Maker (£31,

The perfect chuck-in-your-handbag instant volumiser. Click the pen to release the powder onto the brush and apply to roots for body and through lengths and ends for texture. Great for top-ups during the day.

Percy & Reed Abundantly Bouncy Volumising Mousse (£12,

This light mousse builds impressive volume without feeling heavy or sticky in your hair. Apply mainly to the root area, then comb through before blow-drying.
Expand Image

Kerastase Mousse Bouffante (£16.60,

Mousse formulas can get a bad rep (80s scrunched perm anyone?) but technology has come a long way and this builds full, flexible volume without a sticky, crispy feel.
Expand Image

Aveda Volumizing Tonic (£14.50,

Gives truly weightless, non-sticky volume in just a few spritzes. This herbal-scented spray leaves hair healthy, full and shiny. Apply to damp hair and style.
Expand Image

Philip Kingsley Maximizer (£22,

In true Philip Kingsley style, this volumising spray doesn’t just inject great volume to fine or limp hair, it also contains strengthening protein, UV filters to protect coloured hair and anti-static ingredients. Spray into damp hair and style, or as a setting spray on dry hair.
