by Stephanie Sanchez
[ Veteran Hair Coach and Stylists ]

The VOLOOM volumizing hair iron is not a curling iron or a flat iron. The company is adamant about saying that it is NOT a crimping iron.

Using VOLOOM, helps you go extra days between shampooing because your hair is never flat. You can also color and heat-style your hair less often, causing less damage to your hair.

The makers of VOLOOM like BIG hair and never want you to have another limp and lousy hair day,  by puffing up flat spots, getting rid of cowlicks creating a more complimentary, full profile.

What does VOLOOM do, and what makes it so unique?

The checkerboard (waffle iron) designed plates, by raising and separating individual hairs. VOLOOM creates a hidden volumizing structure that lifts the top layers of hair away from the scalp.

How to Use your Voloom or Voloom Petite

VOLOOM was designed to be used only on the hair near the scalp.

Unlike other hot tools, it is never gets pulled through the hair or used on the ends.

  1. Set iron to recommended Heat setting:
    • Fine, thin or damaged hair: 320-350 degrees F
    • Normal, medium, healthy hair: 350-370 degrees F
    • Thick, coarse or curly hair: 370-390 degrees F
  2. Use only on DRY hair.​
  3. Section off the top layer of your hair.
    • Approx 1” on either side of your parting. This is the hair that you want to stay smooth and clip it off to the side

  4. Clamp and let go,  move, clamp and let go.
    • Don’t hold volumizing iron on a section for more than 1 sec

  5. 1 press down at the root is sufficient for plenty of volume. You can do 2- 3 press down max if your hair is longer.​
  6. Don’t texturize (crimp/clamp) on the ends of your hair.
    • Our goal is to keep the texturizing and volumizing hidden.

  7. Keep the hair alongside your face smooth and untreated​
  8. Hide any imprint under the smooth outer layer.​
  9. Once the hair cools you can brush through it, and the imprint will soften.​
  10. Smaller sections and more layers equals more volume​
