    Hi Chloe - here are a couple of good websites for just what we're talking about:

    www.beauty.ivillage.com/hair/hairtrends/0,,84jpqj30-p,00.html

    www.pg.com/science/haircare/hair_twh_141.htm

    www.hairboutique.com/tips/tip343.htm

    Also, if you hold your head so your hair hangs down while drying it, just put a little spray on the underside and that will help, too. If towel-drying your hair, don't rub it dry; just scrunch the towel in different areas (this is if you have some natural curl).

    There are hair care products specifically geared towarded volumizing your hair. You want to use volumizing shampoos and light conditioners. Adding a few layers in your hair can also help boost the volume. There are also some hair care products to help lift the roots of your hair...some recommended brands:

    Pantene Volumizing Root Lifter Spray Gel

    Matrix Amplify Root Lifter

    FX Special Effects Root Lifter Volume Booster & Root Stimulating Serum

    Paul Mitchell Extra-Body Daily Boost Root Lifter

    Paul Mitchell Volume Spray

    there are so many out there!

    Also as another person answered, blow-drying upside down while scrunching your roots can also help!

    I have straight, shoulder length hair and the same problem - always trying to get volume! I put some straightening cream in my hair after washing (just to make it look smoother) and then I blow dry it upside down....and recently I've discovered if I squirt a bit of hair spray on my roots while tipped upside down, then let it dry, flip it up and brush it out lightly - it looks a lot bouncier without looking too poofy.
