fine/limp hair advice?

My hair has always been fine. Are there any inexpensive products/remedies for this? I'd like my hair to look fuller sometimes, especially with the holidays coming up!

  • Mix a teaspoon of baking soda in with your shampoo before lathering up. The baking soda causes your hair to become extremely full and shiny. You can let it air dry but for best results, blow dry your hair with your head turned upside down.

  • i haven't found any inexpensive products that work for fine limp hair - I have the same problem - I have decided to use the better products, simply because they work and are better for fine hair.

  • Just pour your shampoo into your hand as usual but add a teaspoon of baking soda in with the mixture. Rub your hands together to mix together the ingredients and lather and rinse as usual. Baking soda is also great for making your skin soft while soaking in the bath. Just add a half cup of baking soda to warm bath water and soak for 15 minutes. The baking soda naturally kills bad bacteria in your vagina as well so it is 100% safe to use.

  • Only put conditioner on the ends of your hair, so not to wiegh down your roots. Use mousse in damp hair on roots before blow drying, maybe try root lifter on your roots beforehand too. Use a large round brush to lift your hair up when blow drying. Also don't comb your hair down flat after u get outta the shower, just towel dry, and don't wrap a towel around your head and walk around with it, both of these things just set your hair up for being flat before you ever style it.
