Fine Thin Hair Tips

If you don’t have thin, fine hair, you might think that it’s easy to style and handle, but that’s not the case. Fine and thin hair is known to be notoriously difficult to handle, especially when it comes to adding volume, fine hair seems to end up being limp and lifeless.

If you have thin, fine hair, you already know this, that’s probably why you’re reading this article. If you’ve been struggling to find the best way to style your fine hair, you’re on the right page.

In this article, we’ll give you some hacks that will help you better understand and deal with your thin hair.

Avoid Applying Conditioner to Your Roots

When you have thin hair, you should pay attention to your scalp. Keeping your scalp healthy is one of the best ways to keep your thin hair healthy and strong. If you have thin hair, your relationship with conditioners will be slightly different from everyone else. The key thing to pay attention to is not applying conditioner to your roots; apply only from the mid-length to the ends to prevent your hair from looking greasy and limp.

Use Dry Shampoo 

Dry shampoo is your best friend if you have thin hair. It’s one of the best ways to keep your thin hair from looking flat and lifeless. You can add volume to your hair throughout the day by spraying your hair with dry shampoo and leaving it be. You don’t have to do too much with the dry shampoo to get results, just spray and then maybe fluff it a little bit, and you’re good to go.

You can also put dry shampoo on your scalp before going to bed, you’ll wake with clean and voluminous hair ready for the day.

Hair Styling Products

Don’t Over-Style Your Hair With Products

If you have thick, voluminous hair, hair products can be your best friend. But if you have thin, fine hair you should be careful what type of hair products you use and how you use them. Watch how you use hair oils and hair sprays, going overboard with products doesn’t look good on fine and thin hair. If you have to use oils, use the tiniest amount and focus on the ends only. 

Cut/Layers

If you have thin hair you might want to be modest with layering as too much layering can make fine hair look even thinner and also make curling more difficult. A basic simple cut will make your hair look thicker and fuller. A good example of a simple cut that will work great for thin hair is the blunt cut.

Curly Hairstyles

Curl Your Hair

A good way to add your body to your hair is to add some curls. Curls add body and volume and make your hair look voluminous and bouncy. You can curl your hair in opposite directions for a more texturized and voluminous look or curl your hair in the same direction for a softer, voluminous, and bouncy look. Since you need heat to curl your hair, you should use a heat protectant or opt for overnight heatless curls.

Flip Your Parting

This is a quick and easy way to add more body and volume to your hair. Switch up your parts or flip your hair over to the other side and immediately your hair looks more voluminous.

Hair Parting

Don’t Grow Out Your Hair Too Long

It’s easy to think if you grow your thin fine hair longer it will translate to more volume, but most of the time this is not so. Growing your thin fine hair too long might leave you with hair looking scraggly because there isn’t enough of it for a solid line. Pay attention to your hair and notice at what length it’s the fullest and maintain this length.

Wash Your Hair Upside Down

When washing your hair, it is recommended to wash it upside down as the water pressure from your showerhead can flatten your hair. Eliminating the effect of the showerhead pressure can result in your hair looking fuller and voluminous when it’s dry and styled.

Be Careful When Colouring Your Hair

Colouring or over-bleaching your thin fine hair can lead to breakage, which leads to less hair.

Don’t Over-Shampoo or Over-Condition Your Hair

Over-Shampooing or over-conditioning your hair can force your scalp to produce more oil than necessary, which then ultimately leaves your hair oily and limp. Moderation is key here.
