Something to give hair “grip”

(15 Posts)

Just come in from a night out and my hair looks awful! It all flat and floppy 🙁. When I went out earlier it looked ok, put some dry shampoo on the roots to give it lift and then some hairspray on, but during the evening it just goes flat and limp looking. Is there anything that I can use to give it some grip - you know what hair looks and feels like the day after it’s been washed. Mine goes greasy on top and dry and frizzy on the ends next day so I really need to wash it.
It’s really annoying, everyone else’s hair looks thick and in place.

Buy some hair powder dare2b it's actually root powder small enough to pop in your bag it's bloody amazing! Plenty of lift and height
Have been using it now for about 5 years
Let me know how you get on
And since using this I only have to wash my hair once a week sometimes I let it go longer but hush hush on that bit 🤣

Thanks for the reply fire. Is it a white powder? Would it show up on my brow hair do you think?

Whoops! Should read “Brown” hair

Second vote for that powder, it's amazing. It's white but you just rub it in and it doesn't show.

My hair is dark and doesn't show
Best hair product I ever bought 🙊

Salt sea spray? I am not sure what it does but I have super fine hair and am often told it will help to give my hair more grip and texture.

Another vote for hair powder. It looks white but goes on clear.
You can 'reactivate' it by just scrunching the roots . It's brilliant, and it's cheap!

Thanks everyone, I’ve bought some of the powder today. I’ll give a whirl tomorrow!
