The name is gross, but the volume boost is no joke.

Why do hair inserts always have such bad names? From Bumpits to Hot Buns to hair rats, it just goes from bad to worse. But no matter the method or hair apparatus' name, volume is always in style. 

Today, I'm going to show you how to get easy, damage free, higher-than-heaven hair in less than five minutes. All you need is some hair--doll hair, Halloween wig hair, extensions, or even hair off your brush. (The latter is how they made hair rats in Victorian days.) Just make sure it matches your own hair color.
