What is the best product to give my flat hair some life?

I have long, straight, thin hair. Hair spray after using a curling iron/hot rollers: it falls in less than 15 mins. I dont use conditioner when trying to curl.. Do you have the same kind of hair? What do you use to give it bouncy curls or volume?

  • I usually use salon products. But in Walgreens recently they had a table set up to promote new Tresemme products (including a new dry shampoo for those days when you just gotta). I picked up the new root booster and some body promoting mousse. I haven't tried the mousse yet, but did the root booster today. My husband called it a mane. It wasn't out of control at all, but it gave me volume. I really like this and it doesn't have the heavy smell some do. I think the price was about $4.29 - much cheaper than my usual $15+ products that I haven't been happy with.

  • Get a trim. This alone will help with limpness. Make sure you blow-dry with a round brush. From the roots out is good. Use a volume shampoo and conditioner. If you want curls to stay, the tighter the curl the longer it stays. Use the smallest rollers you can find. Rollers(hot) last longer than a curling iron. Use mousse before your curl.
