I have long mid-back thin extremely straight hair. I'd prefer to keep it long but it's getting to the point where I have to do something or else I'm going to chop it all off. I wash my hair every other day. The first day I can tease, volumize or do what ever to it and where it down. But after that it's so limp and flat that my hair parts so horribly that I look like I have a huge bald spot and have to throw it up. I wear my hair in a clip or ponytail about 99.7% of the time.
Rather than chopping it off I'm considering getting a perm for the curls and volume and much more versatility.
