Hair SOS: my hair is flat & limp!

Is your hair looking limp, flat and lifeless? Don’t panic! Discover our experts’ top tips for injecting some life back into your style and get it back to looking its best.
Limp hair generally tends to be fine, tired or damaged. ‘This could mean that there isn’t enough texture and that it is lacking in body. Avoid using hair products that will weigh down your locks or make them greasy. Similarly, over-using chemical treatments such as permanent hair colors can be harsh and abrasive. Finally, if your house is supplied with a hard water source, this can weaken your hair further. Banish the build-up and avoid using too many products on your style and swap them for quality versions which will improve its overall appearance’.
Styling products are your best friend when it comes to improving the look of your hair. ‘Mousses, sprays and even creams can work wonders. Choose a texture which best suits your hair type. Apply before styling or afterwards as a finishing touch. Flat hair is also likely to need a trim or style overhaul. Your ideal cut? Layers which will boost volume whilst improving the shape. Short styles or a trendy bob will do your style wonders. A long, all-one-length style will not be doing you any favors’.
Our advice: Introduce volume-enhancing products into your haircare routine to add body and movement to your style. Soft & Tone shampoo from the Volume Therapy range will deeply cleanse hair of any product build-up which may be weighing down your hairstyle whilst boosting volume simultaneously.
