Something I have always struggled with--is my hair.

My hair and I have never been friends. Never. I remember as a kid, hacking it all off (to my chin) because I thought that would be the solution to getting better hair. The idea of starting over.

It's hard to style fine, limp hair. Fine hair is one curse. Adding limp body--is an extra punch I could do without. I wish there was some method of thickening it up!

And then I see all these cute girls with beautiful curled hair. I know everyone has a different technique, so I'm curious (okay, desperate) how does one get those big, huge curled locks?! The kind that doesn't look to have been used with a curling iron.

And one secret I learned, is how important it is to use the right kind of hairspray on your hair. Some hairsprays hold like a rock--while they make products designed for fine haired girls, like myself, that give you the freedom of movement where others hold it stifly. Sexy Hair has a product called Smooth and Protect for straight hair--and that is awesome stuff to use if you suffer with fine hair.

So now I'm on a mission to figure out how to get body for my hair and how to get huge curled locks! It's pathetic to be my age and STILL trying to figure out how to style my hair. You would think at my age, I would have figured it out by now.

Has anyone else struggled with this too, how to manage limp and/or fine hair? Have you found a method that helps you? Is there a curling method that you've found that works great?

I have a hair stylist friend who uses some fun curlers on her girls hair to give it body and the huge curls. I'll find out what they are and get back to you. Good luck!

After blowdrying with a round brush, grab a section of hair and use hairspray from the underside - up. Do that all around and on top if you have shorter locks on top. Brush out, then use a curling iron. Style as usual. Creates great body for fine, limp hair - - like ours!

I just say this post but I wanted to put in my 2 cents:

Have you tried curlformers? You can check out there website and see what they do to your hair. They have different curlers for different hair types. I use them in my hair and in my daughters. Make sure you buy some really good gel (spray gel is amazing) to use with it and your curls will be to die for. You can buy them at Sallys or online. They are pricey (not gonna lie, they cost about $70 for the salon pack) but they are so worth it.

Good luck!
