You Can Do:
The Basic Products:
Loop strands around a set of velcro rollers like Conair's ($5 for 6 small or 4 large; at RiteAid stores) for extra movement.
Smooth a dollop of Redken Bodifying Cream Mousse ($17; redken.com for salons) through wet strands to maximize bounce.
A high-watt dryer like the Sedu Revolution Pro ($160; sedubeauty.com) guarantees the smoothest results possible.
Use a teasing comb like the cult favorite Mason Pearson Tail Comb ($22; neimanmarcus.com) to create lift.
