Happy Tuesday! Today I am super excited to show you a new hair tool I received to review. The VOLOOM Hair Volumizing Iron is just as it sounds – it helps turn your flat hair from drab to fab! I have very fine hair, so my hair naturally lays very flat against my head. I was very intrigued with the concept of VOLOOM, but definitely a bit skeptical. Could my hair really gain dramatic volume with just this one tool?! Let me go ahead and show you the VOLOOM and the awesome look I achieved!
Here is the VOLOOM as it first arrived to me. I love the sleek and sturdy packaging! Inside the box I found the VOLOOM Iron, 3 firm-grip hair clips, a precision brush, and a heat resistant mat/carry case. I think it’s great that VOLOOM includes everything you need to use its product. Of course, inside the box are also easy-to-follow instructions! I really appreciated how clear they were.
Before using the VOLOOM for the first time, I watched this tutorial on the brand’s website. It helped me see exactly how to use the iron, so I thought I would post it in my review to help you out as well! As you can see, this is not a normal iron – it’s not a curling iron or a flat iron. Instead, the VOLOOM has a unique, almost waffle iron pattern for the heating plates. With a few quick “clamp and release” motions, your hair is volumized and looking full! The best part is, you do not need to use any sort of products along with the VOLOOM. Without style sprays, mousses, and gels, the VOLOOM gives you soft and natural-looking volume that is not weighed down. I know, it sounds too good to be true, but let me show you my results!
Wow! That’s all I can say after I use the VOLOOM! I think you can easily spot the difference between my Before & After photos! I am really happy with the results. There is definitely a little bit of a learning curve with the VOLOOM, but I think that is true with any type of hair tool. I begin styling my hair using a flat iron as I would normally. I did use my regular heat protectant before straightening my hair, but that is the only product I used. Once my hair was styled as I like it, I set up the VOLOOM. Because my hair is fine, I used the lowest recommended heat setting of 320º Fahrenheit. The VOLOOM heated up really quickly, and I was able to get to work!
I first tested the VOLOOM as instructed with the firm-grip clips, but I soon found that because my hair is so thin, the clips were more of a nuisance than a help. Thus, I used the parting brush and just placed the layers I wasn’t volumizing on the opposite side of my head. For the look above, I clamped two-three layers of hair on each side of my head. I do recommend starting as close to the scalp as possible. You should also leave a thicker layer of hair on top so as to hide the volumized hair. While the waffle texture does fade away throughout the day, it is definitely visible right after using the VOLOOM, so I wanted to disguise that with the top layer of hair.
WHERE TO BUY
Now that you’ve seen my real Before & After photos, I’m sure you want to know where you can get your hands on the amazing VOLOOM! The VOLOOM is a bit on the expensive side at $129.99, but it is made extraordinarily well, and includes a 30-day risk free trial. If you are accustomed to getting blowouts at the salon to achieve similar styles, the VOLOOM also saves you money there, as you will pay for your VOLOOM in just 4 uses! In addition, you can grab the VOLOOM for three easy payments of $43.33 if you don’t have the money up front. Are you ready to purchase and Let Your Hair Bloom?! Shop on VOLOOM’s website HERE!
