If dealing with thin, lifeless hair that prefers to lie flat rather then look alive and healthy is leaving you in a tizzy, then worry no more, there is hope! With the right products and a little know-how about how to use them, anyone can have supermodel hair without having to go to an expensive salon.
Pantene has recently come out with a line of haircare products designed specifically for fine hair that loves to lie flat. Their shampoo and conditioner duo goes by the name of “Flat to Volume,” and it does just that — turns flat locks into voluminous ones.
For added oomph, Pantene’s spray gel and hairspray for fine hair is just what the doctor ordered. These products promise to add lift to your roots and keep your hair from falling flat.
While using these great products from Pantene, you want to keep in mind that there are some tips and tricks you can use in order to maximize the effectiveness of the products.
In order to avoid any weighing down of your hair, after you wash it and are ready to use conditioner, you will want to apply a dollop of Pantene’s Flat to Volume Conditioner to the ends of your hair. It is best to avoid using conditioner on the roots of your hair, since this area is already naturally oily, and adding conditioner can weigh it down. Leave the conditioner on the ends of your hair for at least three minutes for maximum absorption, and then rinse with cool water.
Cool water is the best for rinsing thin, lifeless hair, as it will not strip your hair of its natural oils, as hot water does, which in turn makes your scalp overcompensate by creating even more oil. Oily hair is flat and limp, and you want to avoid that at all costs.
Once you have washed your hair and have let it dry, using a spray gel such as Pantene’s Root Lifter Spray Gel for fine hair is the perfect way to add volume to your locks. Spritz a little of the hair gel at your roots to ensure long lasting volume that will take you from day to night. The best way to apply Pantene’s spray gel for fine hair is to flip your head over, apply to the roots, and then flip your head and hair upright. This will give you instant Barbarella volume, which you can tame or let loose according to what style you are in the mood for. Slight teasing at the root is another great way to lock volume into your hair, and the spray gel will make sure that the volume you have created stays put.
For added volume assurance, Pantene’s hairspray for fine hair contains polymers that will lift your hair and protect it from humidity, since humidity can turn hair from vibrant to flat in seconds. Once you have the desired style you want, simply use the spray from a safe distance, and use your fingers or a round brush to lift the areas that you want the most volume in. Voila! Thick, full, luscious hair is yours.
