Hey lady! The same thing happened to my hair when I moved to a dryer climate. It got really thin and greasy even though it used to be thick and wavy. I’m sure it has something to do with less humidity.
I know that to make hair thick it needs lots of protein so you can find this in foods you eat and in shampoo. You also need to clarify your scalp which a lot of exfoliating shampoos can help to do.
Do you use conditioner? If you have oily hair, you can skip out on it. Here’s what I do -
What I use: Lush BIG Shampoo combined with Lush Cynthia Silvia Stout Shampoo
Big has sea salt which cleanses and clarifies the hair and the little salts exfoliate your scalp. I used to have a problem with dandruff but I don’t anymore since I started using this. The thing about the sea salt is that it can sometimes be drying, so I combine it with Cynthia Silvia Stout which is made from organic beer (haha) and it’s SUPER moisturizing. It also has protein in it from the beer.
I don’t wash my hair everyday, probably just once every 2 days depending on how gross I feel. I also don’t use conditioner. I only wash my hair in the shower. After I get out, I’ll use Lush R&B Hair Moisturizer (literally just the tip of my finger’s worth) and put it JUST on the ends of my hair, never on my scalp.
I’ve never been so happy with a shampoo before and my hair is back to its giant self. I hope this helps! You should remember two things for flat greasy hair – don’t condition in the shower and if you do use a light conditioner, Sebastian makes a good one (Sebastian by Sebastian Light Conditioner). Protein is good to have in your diet and on your hair, and always stay hydrated and well rested. Biotin and Keratin (sp?) are also good with your hair but I haven’t been able to find a vegan version of this stuff.

I second the dry shampoo it does wonders…can go a week without needing to wash my hair when I’m super busy.posted almost 5 years ago
try using a dry shampoo, but if you don’t want to go out and purchase some..try using a bit of baby powder on your roots and combing it through your hair. Use a little bit at a time to avoid looking ridiculous and slowly build on it until you have your desired amount of shine in your hair.posted almost 5 years ago
I love using dry shampoo or baby powder. It really helps me out on the days that I sleep in and don’t have enough time to wash my hair. Dry shampoo adds major volume to my hair.posted almost 5 years ago
Dry shampoo, but invest in a good one. I had this one called unite that was just amazing and I think it’s around 30 dollars, but I haven’t seen it around. Tresumme makes this one called Fresh Start and it isn’t really great, but works I suppose? Actually it leaves your hair feeling unnatural so you might want to stay away from that. It kind of leaves your hair looking a little grey too.posted almost 5 years ago
