Flat Limp Hair Solutions

Well here is one option...

But in leiu of sticking a fork in your outlet every morning here are some tips and tricks.

Use a blow dryer with a cool shot button.Flip your air over and get it nice and toasty near your scalp, then push the cool shot button and cool it down before you flip your head back over.This acts much like a roller set or curling iron setting the body into your roots.

Avoid too much product!A lightweight styling product like Joico Bodyluxe Root Lift Foam is great, but only put it at your roots.Added product adds added weight.Keep your ends as light as possible to keep them from weighing your style down.

Use an aerosol hair spray that goes on almost dry.Spritz hairsprays take time to dry weighing you down.The dryer the hairspray on contact the better.Wetter hairsprays are basically a mist hair glue and can gunk your hair up.Dryer sprays will leave little beads on your hairshaft which work like a zipper adhering to each other.I love the new TIGI Rockaholic Fun Times Flexible Hair Spray . It smells a little like fresh oranges ( im a smell junkie).

Use a clarifying shampoo from time to time.Build up can add weight to your do, but dont use a clarifyer every day because it can dry your hair out.I add a few tablespoons of lemon juice to a few cups of warm water and rinse it through my hair every once in a while to avoid buildup.

Use a light daily shampoo and conditioner.Avoid bottles that say "hydrating" or "smoothing" as they are probably too heavy for your hair.

Avoid long hairstyles that make your hair look straggly.Long hair isnt pretty if it isnt pretty hair girls.

Dont overtease your hair! Teasing can be hard to hide with fine hair. When the day wears on your hair you can look like a ratty mess.Try using velcro rollers to add volume and find a style that will look great even if it falls limp.Bigger isnt always better when it comes to hair.

Lighten your hair color!Sounds simple enough but this works for a few reasons. The process can add texture to your hair and lighten the load on each individual strand.Also if you have problems with your scalp showing, lightening your hair can buffer the contrast between your hair color and your scalp color making your hair appear thicker and fuller.
