Six products that will give your flat hair a run for it's money! From Matrix, John Frieda, Rene Furterer, Schwarzkopf, Pantene and got2b!

As the lucky owner of fine, limp, super-blah hair I am always on the hunt for something that will give it a little oomph - here are a few that I have been testing out lately:

Matrix Total Results Amplify Volume Wonder Boost Root Lifter - 250ml - $15 -features a targeted applicator for extreme lift at the root area or all over volume impact that lasts all day. Builds lightweight body with a flexible hold and no stiffness or stickiness.

I love the fresh smell and appreciated the lack of crunchiness which I often find is an issue with spray in products. I did notice a difference in results with this applicator then I do with normal sprays as it is able to get right at the root which is where I really want the volume! But what I'm really impressed with is the price - $15 for a salon product is pretty sweet - even sweeter, they have a whole line of Total Results products all at only $15 a pop!

Check out to check out the Total Results line and to find a salon near you.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Dry Shampoo - 100g - $10.49 - a fine hair anytime volume refresher for when hair falls flat that absorbs oils and greasy build-up that weigh hair down, adding texture to fine hair and lifting strands from the roots to increase fullness. Use on dried, styled hair as needed throughout he day.

No matter what volumizing product I put in my hair in the morning, by afternoon it's looking limp again, this time because my roots tend to get oily as the day wears on. This is why I am in love with this new spray from John Frieda. It comes in a slim container that is easy to hide in a desk drawer or a big purse and with just a few sprays to my root area, oiliness is banished and my hair is light and full!

Rene Furterer Volumea Volumizing Conditioning Spray - 125ml - $27 - for fine and limp hair to give lift to hair at the roots. With natural carob extract to provide controlled body and to create volume throughout hair. For light airy hair that has a very natural look.

With a hefty price tag and a less than pleasant smell, you know this one has to be really good to have made the list! I get such awesome body from this spray that I can forgive both transgressions! My big complaint is how hard it is to find the line - they carry a few of the products at Sephora but not this one or several of the other ones I love so I always end up either bumping into it in some random salon or googling it when I am trying to track something down!

Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+ Hairbody Volume Style & Care Spray - 200ml - $19.75 - for volume, light styling control, conditioning, easy combing and anti-static effect.  Apply on damp hair and blow dry or leave to dry naturally and style as required.

This is my go-to spray on days when I don't have time/can't be bothered to blow dry my hair - not only does it add volume, it also adds a bit of texture to give me the beach-babe look as opposed to the too-lazy-to-dry-my-hair look!

Go to to find a salon near you.

If you're looking for something under $10, here are a couple that work great and won't cost you much:

Pantene Fine Spray Gel Root Lifter - 170ml - $5.99 - apply directly to the roots of wet or dry hair to create volume and add shine. Also guards against moisture that causes your style to fall flat even in high humidity.

Also a great texture adder and because it is a gel, I find it does a better job then all of them of keeping my hair in place - so I tend to reach for this one if I am actually trying to achieve some sort of style!
Got2b Fat-tastic Instant Infusion Collagen Root-Boosting Spray - 177ml - $7.99 - a lightweight spray that lifts your hair at the root to give it instant volume.

This nozzle idea is genius - really a much better way of applying product to your roots!

And of course I am always up for trying something new so if you have a great volumizing product that you use - please share the deets with me!
