Are speaking to wrapping your hair wet or maintaining your wrap after it is dry? Here are my solutions to either technique.

For a body filled wrap, my stylist does a roller wrap. He sets my hair on rollers. After my hair has dried, he combs the curls out and wraps my hair around my head and secures it with saran wrap. I sit under the dryer for another 15-20 minutes. When he combs it out, I have body and curls and my hair is not flat to my head.

If you are trying to maintain your "wrap" style, try not to wrap your hair too tight around your head. When I was in H.S. I used to like that slicked down look, but as I got older I wanted more body so I began wrapping my hair very loosely around my head.

If my hair is freshly relaxed, I have gone to bed without wrapping and just throw on a silk bonnet. I wrap my hair before taking a shower and the steam seems to set my hair and give it body.

I usually wear a part on the left side. When I would wrap the left side to the right, the hair on the left would want to stay right and wouldn't lay flat. What I do now is split my hair in two sections down the middle. I don't actually part my hair, but just grab about equal amounts of hair on each side. I will comb the right side loosely to the left and hold with bobby pins or those silver clips. I then loosely sweep the left side to the right and secure. I tie a hair net around my head. Remove the clips so I don't get any of those ugly indentations. Throw on my satin bonnet or scarf and I'm done. When you comb your hair out in the morning your hair should have body and lay in the direction you want it to.

Another tip: When wrapping my hair, I wrap my hair on top of my ears instead of behind. If you normally wear your "wrap" behind your ear, then wrapping the hair behind the ear at night may be the best technique because it trains the hair to stay behind the ear. If you wear your hair over your ears, then wrapping your hair over your ears helps to keep the hair in that same position. Hope this helps.

your hair products may be causing your hair to be bodiless. try something that adds body like elasta qp bodyfying shampooThumbs%20Up. and for your styling products try something really light.
