I have lots of long but lifeless hair too - the only thing that REALLY works if I can be bothered with the effort is...
- dry my hair with a bit of thickening spray in (John Frieda one v good) til it's bone dry. - tip head to one side as if almost upside down and spray lots of Elnett hairspray on that exposed side, blow dry whilst brushing with a paddle brush, leave a few seconds for hair to cool - repeat with other side, and then tip head forward and do the same by spraying the back section of your hair etc. - once hair cooled a bit, tip your head back to normal and gently brush the hair down a bit (as it will probably look rather wild) then ruffle your hair al over and lightly spray with more Elnett.
The above is not great for your hair to do it every single day though but I find even just spraying Elnett into half dried hair, brushing it through and then leaving it to dry naturally, whilst ruffling it upside down a few times as it is drying, has the same sort of effect.
