Wash with a clarifying shampoo once a week

Product build-up causes hair to become flat and limp. Prevent this by washing once a week with a clarifying shampoo. Your hair should seem lighter and springier afterwards. Always lather up twice when using a clarifying product.

Let your hair dry

For quality hair, always opt for air drying when possible. When you wash your hair in the evening, wrap it nicely and go to bed when it’s still damp. Brush your hair in the morning and see the magic in the marriage.

Apply styling products to dry hair

Apply mousse and styling lotions etc. after air drying, and brush out once the product has set. This results in a more solid-looking volume than if applied to wet hair.

Nourish your hair with beer

Shampoos, conditioners and styling products containing beer are excellent if you want smooth, glossy hair with plenty of bodies.

Or fill an atomizer with flat beer and spray it on your hair from root to end in place of styling lotion—don’t worry, the smell soon dissipates.

Avoid finishing products

Avoid finishing spray, shine spray and wax. These are much too heavy for fine hair and certain to flatten it.

Put your hair up in hot rollers

Hot rollers add shine and volume. They only work on dry hair, so use them after blow-drying or between washes. If you don’t possess hot rollers, you can get a similar effect by sweeping a hairdryer over velcro rollers.
