I have a question for the ladies about long hair...

Its been several months since i've gotten a haircut and i've reached a length i've never had before, however, sometimes it feels weird... instead of the frowish-thick short hair i used to have its become rather thin and flat. Also when i let the bangs hang down they look very choppy and lifeless. Any feedback as to why this is happening would be much appreciated :)

When your hair is long, it has more weight - gravity just pulls it down! You should invest in some volumizing hair products to provide your hair with more lift, bounce, and maybe a shine serum as well.

That makes sense! I have also noticed an increase in shedding lately so i've been reluctant to use any products.. I have a leave in conditioner from dove but i find some days it just makes my hair look greasy and transparent, do volumizing hair products work the same as leave in conditioners?

Well leave in conditioners should be used once a week at the most, because they do make your hair greasy (but soft). Volumizers just make your hair have more lift from the roots. They are usually applied after you shower, and aren't greasy. Blow dry your hair upside down to set in the product.

Shedding is just more obvious when your hair is long I think :)

Is it normal to have more hairfall if you constantly touch your hair? Also will a heavy volumizing product pull out more hair?

Yep, that's very normal! It shouldn't no :)

Maybe you could get long layers? Just tell them you want to keep the length that you have.

You need a healthy trim, a professional conditioner done.
