Fine hair is great for sleek, smooth looks. But, when the trends turn and you need more texture and body how do you achieve that? Absolutely! Fine hair is tricky because it can easily be weighed down or too much product can make it look dirty. Hair products can be determined by the texture of your hair. People with fine hair don’t need the same products as someone with coarse hair.
With that in mind I’ve compiled 5 product you need for fine hair.
Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner
Some Volumizing Shampoos & Conditioners have a tendency to dry out your hair. Insert Thickening Products. Thickening Products help plump your individual strands to allow your hair to be more full and actually appear thicker.
After using this type of shampoo and conditioner you get a fuller, longer lasting look. Your style holds longer and stays thicker looking. Thickening Shampoos and conditioners don’t seem ( to me ) as drying as most volumizing products. We want volume but not at the cost of soft hair!
// Matrix Full Density Shampoo & Conditioner //
I love this Shampoo and Conditioner Duo together! It makes my hair feel noticeably thicker. That’s so crazy to me because honestly, I was skeptical at first. I can’t even lie about it! It isn’t drying to my hair at all. That’s why I generally stay away from this type of shampoo and conditioner. The Full Density Shampoo and Conditioner make a liar out of me.
You have to be careful with this one because mousse can make you hair appear dull and weighted down. There’s a fine ( no pun intended ) line. Too heavy of a product or too much of a product can make your hair too heavy. Then, you can’t get any volume. This causes your locks to be stuck on your head and can potentially make your hair look dirty.
Don’t let that scar you! A little goes a long way and you can always add more to your hair if you can tell it’s not enough. After a couple days you’ll instantly know how much you need!
// Matrix Airy Builder //
Well. no new news here. I love this Mousse. You already know. It’s super light weight and great for all hair types but specifically fine hair. It isn’t heavy at all. It makes my hair airy, voluminous, and thicker.
Even if you wash your hair every day dry shampoo needs to be a product in your cabinet. Dry shampoo adds volume and weightless texture. It makes your hair airy in a sense and gives you movement. Plus, it almost acts as an eraser if you put too much product in your hair.
Dry Shampoo can give you an extra dose of volume and body that other products can’t. It also adds just the right amount of texture so you can keep your s typing lasting all day!
// Batiste Original //
Okay, Jet Lag is my ride or die dry shampoo but, I am loving this one and it is cheap! It does leave a gray cast at first but once you brush it or massage it into your hair. It gives great texture and wonderful volume. I am loving this dry shampoo. For the price I dare say that Batiste is my new fave.
Lightweight hairspray keeps life in your hair but doesn’t make it crunchy. We WANT life and we WANT movement. What we don’t want is helmet hair. Think 90s updo crunch. Even the lightest hairsprays can weigh down fine hair.
Lightweight hairspray is my jam. It’d be a lie if I said I wasn’t the master of lightweight hairsprays. I dislike hair spray so much (for myself) Often, I don’t use any hairspray at all. I have discovered all my favorite brands light sprays.
// Paul Mitchell Super Clean Light //
I’d actually forgotten about this hairspray. When I was in beauty school this was my hairspray. I used this all the time! It’s super light and it isn’t wet when you spray it. It’s holds so well for a light hairspray. Also, it doesn’t leave a lot of residue and buildup. Super Clean Light gives you nice touchable style that can’t be beat. I’m so glad I rediscovered it.
Fine hair is much more fragile than more coarse hair. Therefore, teasing it with a vengeance is recipe for breakage. Using a pick you can lightly “back comb” your hair to give you volume. The good thing about fine hair is a light tease will give you great volume.
We always want what we don’t have. People with coarse hair want more fine hair and people with fine hair want more coarse hair. There’s pros and cons of both.
With fine hair are you able to achieve every style? No. But, I could say that exact thing to someone with coarse hair. There’s perks to all different hair types. Fine hair has to be babied a little more than more coarse hair but with that coarse hair takes TLC too.
