Recently I posted styling tips for thick hair, and today my post is just the opposite - styling tips for fine hair. There are a lot of people out there who would love to have long, bouncy, voluminous hair, but no matter how much they let it grow and grow, it's just wispy and thin. But there are a few things you can do to get the most out of your fine hair. If styled right, fine hair can be really cute and stylish!
1-Never put conditioner on your roots. Putting conditioner on your roots will weigh your hair down and make it look oily faster. Same goes for leave in conditioners, serums or any other smoothing lotion. Avoid the roots!
2-Try to use a light weight conditioner like Biolage. Fine hair can be weighed down by heavy or thick conditioners.
3-Using the right product is KEY. A lot of my fine hair clients leave my chair saying "how do you make my hair look so full and bouncy?!" It's the product! Look for any type of volumizing product. Root pump, mousse and thickening spray are all good choices. My favorite products for fine hair are Boosta Spray by Unite, Texture Line Hot Style Hot Volume Foam by Artec, and Alterna LIFE Volume Mousse.
4-On fine hair, shorter styles will look thicker and fuller than longer styles. If you've been trying to grow your hair for years and it's only grown 1/2 inch, you are probably very attached to your length. Taking off an inch or two will make your hair look so much thicker and healthier.
5-When putting your hair up, keep everything loose and soft. Fine hair tends to be very fragile, so pulling it up tightly will increase the chance of breakage.
6-Learn how to round brush. It's not an easy thing to do on yourself, but it helps a ton with body. To make it easier, wait until your hair is around 70% dry to start round brushing. You can also just round brush the crown area and sides, where you need extra body the most.
7-Wear it wavy. Wavy hair looks fuller than straight hair.
