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!

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
