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!

If yes, than I encourage you to invite that person to walk home with you. If not - let's take a step back and figure our why you are feeling left out/ignored. Do your friends talk about things that you don't understand, do they block you from participating in the conversation? If you guys have to walk together and there is no choice in the matter - YOU be the initiator of great conversation. Confidently smile - and talk to BOTH of them at the same time. It's so helpful to be able to navigate a conversation generously. That means you be the one on the high road - ask questions, people love talking about things that are interesting to them. Ask questions and figure out what common things all three of you have together and before you know it your walk will be over. Hope this helps. Let us know what happens. Inclusivity totally kicks butt over exclusivity!  thank you soooo much for the amazing advice, unfortunately I don't really have a choice because my friend walks to my house where her mum picks her up so it would hurt her feelings if I said no to walking with her but ill definitely try yor suggestions in the second paragraph. Thanks

I have this one best friend and she is wonderful. But two of my other friends are best friends with each other and when I walk home from school with them I feel really left out and ignored. I don't want to ruin their friendship but I don't know what to do about it. Any suggestions?
