"Lack of volume could be caused by a variety of reasons, but most common is using the wrong shampoo/conditioner for your hair type, followed by using a conditioner all over instead of just the midlength to ends," Balding says. "It's an easy problem to fix and makes a huge difference; talk to your stylist about the best regimen for your hair."
2. DAMAGE CONTROL
"An easy way to prevent damage is being gentle when detangling your wet hair. Use a large-toothed comb or a brush designed to detangle wet hair, as we hair is very fragile and most damage can be created at this point."
3. DULLING HAIR
"Product buildup can cause dull hair when a lot of product is used constantly over time. Make sure to use a clarifying shampoo once a week to rid of buildup, and this will bring back life into your color and bounce back into your hair."
4. CONSTANT SPLIT-ENDS
"Even if you love to keep your hair really long, make sure you are having it trimmed every 8-12 weeks, as this will really help to keep it in healthy condition. Dry, damaged ends split and travel farther up the hair shaft if you don't remove them."
5. OVERALL HAIR HEALTH
"How can you make your hair more lustrous, thick and healthy? It really makes such a difference if you eat a healthy and balanced diet, drink plenty of water and take a multivitamin each day. Like your skin, your hair represents what you put into your body."
