How to Styling Tips

You should know dealing with fine or thin hair require a good cut, with the right length of hair (usually shorter where you want help to get more volume),  hair color (add both highlights & low lights to help fool the eye & giving the illusion of depth),  help for your hair in the form of volume adding shampoo, conditioners & styling aids (for added support), the learn to use the right styling tools.

Here are some  "how to do it"  with your own hands styling tips.

Think of all this as if it were make-up for your hair ... all to promoting volume, shine and movement. In short after your "plump it up" as much as possible you need to know how to give fine hair the illusion that it is thick hair. Use volumizing hair shampoo, conditioners that is specifically designed for fine hair. You may not need to do it all , so pick & choose to get the right balance for your hair, just as you do with your make-up and skin care.

Tip #1  Go AGAINST hair growth patterns to make your hair stand up. Hair is stubborn and here is where you can turn the unwanted growth pattern into needed lift. Don't miss this opportunity to turn lemons into lemonade.

Tip #2 When selecting hair products for fine hair look for those products that both add volume and reduce the weight of your hair by removing the minerals deposited form your water. Put your hair on a steady diet of "mineral removing products". They will  leave your hair feeling lighter - because it is lighter when it is not being weighed down with all those extra minerals from your water.   (see Colure Their volume formula seems to make the hair lighter & add volume both at the same time --  EC Mode Just for Well Water Kit -- EC Mode Malibu Make Over-- EC Mode hard water demineralizer -- EC Mode Hair Thickening Kit -- Lanza Volume Formula )

Tip #3  Don't be fooled by chlorine! Chlorine & other swimming pool maintenance products accumulate in your hair and can eat it alive. If you are thinking I'll leave the chlorine in my hair to get volume - you are right but you are trading more volume now at the expense of  allowing  the swimming pool products to destroy your hair.

Tip #4 - Treat the ROOT area: Making your hair look like more hair may be as simple as treating the root area to get more lift. The whole idea here is to get the styling products on the root and NOT on the ends of the hair. This gives lift & leaves the ends free to move around "looking natural"  when your styling is finished.  There are several ways to do this:

  • Root Lift Type mousse: a moose that sprays on in a small stream then foams up on the head (root area only) usually applied while hair is still wet, before blow drying ( see Lanza Root Effects ) .
  • On finished styles (dry hair) you can often hold (to cover) the ends of your hair with one hand  --- with you spray the "root area only" resulting in more lift. this is done in sections to get the lift where it is needed then to blend.
  • On finished hair you can put some gel in the palm of one hand and the pick it up on the bottom of the fingers of the other hand (being careful not to get it on the sides of your fingers) the holding the dry hair with the first hand stick you fingers through the hair you are holding up and apply the gel to the root area one section at a time, rubbing in small circles on the scalp. As  the  fingers come away from the scalp close them together to pull or lift the hair straight away from the scalp creating volume.

Tip #5  Use a flat iron to give you root lift. First dry your hair with your blow dryer. Now section your hair, spray a protect and hold product on the hair ( see Lanza Reflex ) then starting at the root clamp and slide up - but only 1/2 inch repeat heating 3 quick times, on the third time slide the flat iron to the ends turning to bend as desired. Reinforcing the root this way creates volume, while providing the desired look you want on the ends.

Tip #6  The girls that come in to Top Banana regularly swear the right hair spray makes all the difference when their style has to last all day. Try to get a hair spray that lets you use hot tools to "touch it up again" again before you go out at night. Come in --- let's tall about your hair needs & the right hair spray for you.
