Slip-Proof Style


We know. Some days it can be hard to get out of the house on time with your hair dried and your shoes tied. Sure, your ‘do was perfection when you locked the door behind you– but thirty minutes later, your fine strands have slipped out of the pony, fallen out of the curls, or lost all semblance of bounce.  If you have fine hair, you know the drill.  Your hair lies flat on your scalp, no matter how you wear it.  And it’s impossible to keep a style that lasts all day (forget about nighttime).  What to do?


Unlike thick hair, fine hair gets really flat when it’s dirty, so make sure you shampoo once a day with a gentle formula. If your hair is on the oilier side, try applying conditioner only to the ends, avoiding the scalp. Clean hair is bouncy hair – and the body will help give your style more staying power. 


Before pulling your hair into a ponytail, braid, or topknot, try gently backcombing your hair at the roots with a fine-tooth comb. The thicker texture will give your tresses more “hold,” keeping your style put for longer.


Another way to add life to your hairstyle?  Create texture!  Pantene Pro-V Stylers collection – including the Triple Action Mousse Shaping, Extra Strong Hold Hairspray, and the Maximum Hold Gel help – not only help give hair a texture boost, they hold your style for hours.  To use: Apply the Mousse on damp roots (it creates space and friction between hair strands to give them lift), flip hair upside down and blow-dry.  Or, use gel if you want even more hold.  Then, set your hair on Velcro rollers, finger-style, and finished with an allover spritz of hairspray, which was designed to help your style stay put all day.
