If you suffer from limp hair that won’t hold volume or body, here are some ideas to help you break the flat hair mold.
Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Setting the foundation in the shower is the way to go for fine haired clients. The shampoo helps add grit and texture to your hair for your blow-dry. Volumizing conditioners are usually light and milky, so fine hair is not weighed down by heavy conditioning creams.

Products! Don’t be afraid of products! The days of heavy mousses and gels are over. Instead opt for lightweight foams and volumizing sprays. Layering these products can amp up the volume, too. Apply products to damp hair before blow-drying and focus the application on the crown for ultimate lift in that area. Try to blow-dry most of the moisture out of your hair while upside down and then stand back up to finish with a round brush, again paying special attention to the crown area.
Plumped Up Tips:
Hot Rollers – on day two, try popping some hot rollers in at the crown to refresh limp hair.
Back-coming and Teasing – take small sections at the crown, start with a section near the back, lift it up and comb hair down to the scalp to create a cushion. Continue this step with each section as you move forward, spray with hairspray, then smooth with a brush lightly. Hairspray again!
Hairspray! – fine haired girls best friend.
Ask your stylist for products they would recommend for your hair type to get you on the right path for body and volume. You’re sure to look like a bombshelled, big-haired Texan in no time.
