Do you have flat or lifeless hair? Is it hard to style your hair because it is thin and stringy? These are common problems for many women but the good news is there are many options for correcting or masking these issues. Here are some of our favorites!
Try A Volumizing Shampoo And Conditioner
There are specially formulated shampoos and conditioners available that can help your hair build up volume. Look for a high quality, salon approved set to get started with the right products. Feel free to talk to your stylist about recommendations for brands to look for. It can also be helpful to switch up your shampoo and conditioner you use every so often to avoid any build up, especially if you are using a lesser quality product, to keep your hair healthy and volumized.
Blow Dry With A Purpose
Blow drying is self explanatory, right? Maybe not. To help you get a volumized look try blow drying your hair upside down. This will help add some natural volume to your hair without layering on products to achieve a volumized look. It is also a good idea to use a diffuser attachment with your blow dryer to change how the air and heat is applied to your hair.

There are so many hair products on the market. You can find a product for nearly everything you could think of. Take advantage of this availability and shop around to find the perfect fit for your hair. Look for a high quality brand and well formulated product. Match formulas made for your hair type for the best results. Try a volumizing mousse to get that fabulous look you are going for. Really great products won’t weigh your hair down or feel sticky in your hair.
