If you have limp hair, start with a great cut, which means working your hair cut to the shape of your head – don’t fight against hair texture and work with your head structure so hair naturally sits nicely.
Then it’s all about getting a good foundation when styling. Apply a volume or even a gel spray to the roots (don’t be afraid of gel, it gives really good hold), then vigorously ruffle the root area with your fingers. This works by ‘confusing’ the follicles, they don’t know which way to lie so they stand up straight.
Now dry the hair. This is a great foundation to give you lift which will last all day – if your volume starts to drop then simply re-ruffle the roots with your fingertips and they’ll remember to stand up again.
