  • We love these products, and we think you will too. Just so you know, this post contains affiliate links and if you make a purchase, we may get a cut of the sale (with no cost to you).

  • If you've ever been on Pinterest for more than five minutes, you've probably experienced something called "hair envy." No matter what type of hair you have, you've probably wanted something different at least once in your life.

  • We all want to love our hair, but sometimes we just get bored and want something new. Before you lose hope on the hair of your dreams, here are a few of our favorite tips to help you be the definition of #hairgoals:

  • For growth

  • 1. Take advantage of DIY hair masks

  • Natural oils such as coconut, almond and argan oil will do wonders for your hair. Put them in your hair 30 minutes before you shower for extra strength and growth.

  • Buy Argan oil for $12.95 right here.

  • 2. Skip washing your hair every day

  • Your hair can handle not being washed every day. Your hair has natural oils that promote growth and health, so leave them be for a day.

  • 3. Condition every time you wash

  • Conditioner is crucial to healthy hair. Conditioning will prevent your strands from breaking off, which results in longer locks. This conditioner is awesome, and won't break the bank.

  • To buy: $13.45 on Amazon
  • 4. Swap out your pillowcase

  • If you have a cotton pillowcase, swap it for a silk one. The silk will help your hair stay soft and prevent breakage.

  • To buy: $34.97
  • 5. Don't be afraid of a cut

  • While getting a regular trim won't make your hair grow faster, it will keep it healthy and prevent it from breaking. Your hair might be a tad shorter after a trim, but it will seem like it's growing faster because your hair will be healthy.

  • 6. Turn down the heat

  • Make sure your curling iron, flat iron or any other styling product you use is turned at least halfway down, temperature wise. You'll think it won't work if it's that low, but it totally does. My favorite curling iron of all time is the One n' Only Argan Heat Iron. The bigger barrel makes for bigger volume and comes with 30 different heat settings.

  • Buy it here for $38.99
  • For volume

  • 1. Blow dry your hair upside down

  • When you blow dry your hair upside down, it gives your roots that little boost they need to keep your hair looking voluminous.

  • 2. Sleep with your hair on top of your head

  • At the end of the day, put your hair on top of your head in a loose bun or scrunchie ponytail. You'll feel like you were transported to the 80's, but your hair will have amazing volume in the morning.

  • My hair is usually on top of my head 98% of the time.. oh well ????‍♀️

  • 3. Use a volumizing shampoo

  • Volumizing shampoos are always great for adding volume to your hair. We recommend trying this one. It even comes with volumizing conditioner!

  • Get it here for $26.95.
  • 4. Make dry shampoo your best friend

  • Dry shampoo is a beautiful thing, as we all know. However, you don't have to wait to use it until your strands get a little greasy. Use it the first day you wash your hair for extra volume.

  • Get 2 for $13.90.
  • 5. Switch up your part

  • Changing your part does wonders when it comes to adding volume. When your hair is forced to go a different way than it usually does, it will give you a little extra boost.

  • 6. Trust your hairdresser

  • Your hairdresser knows what's best for your hair and wants you to be happy with your locks. If he or she thinks you need to take off a few inches in order for you to have volume and overall healthy hair, they're probably right.
