Dear Dish-it: Help for Flat Hair

Dear Dish-it,


My hair is so flat and unmanageable. How can I make my hair have more volume and be more manageable, without spending hours in front of a mirror?

Dear delly belly,


There are a few tricks to making flat hair plump and voluminous - and still stick-straight. Hint: Ditch the flat iron!


Step 1

Start by shampooing and working a volumizing conditioner into your locks. I like Herbal Essences Body Envy Conditioner because it's affordable, smells great and works well, too!

Step 2

Once you’re out of the shower, prep your locks with a volumizing mousse. My fave is TRESemme Volumizing Mousse.

Step 3

Next, blow dry your hair, brushing it out with a round brush as you go. You’ll straighten and smooth your strands - but still get that extra oomph.

If you’re pulling your hair up, you can use a brush to lightly tease hair at the crown (close to your scalp). Or, wind your hair around hot rollers for dressy occasions. Use your fingers to loosen the curls and - viola - major lift!
