Try A Dry Shampoo
A lot of women with fine hair feel like they have to wash their hair every day to avoid that “greasy” feeling. But washing your hair every day will actually make it feel more greasy. How so? Your hair follicles produce natural oils that make your hair shiny and full. If you wash your hair a lot, your scalp will feel dry, and your skin will produce too much oil to try to eliminate the dryness. Take a break from your shampoo and use a dry shampoo to soak up the oil. It will eliminate excess oil and limp hair.
2. Get the Right Style
It may seem tempting to add layers for volume, but that will actually thin your hair out! Many stylists will use a razor to thin the hair out as they add layers. Women with fine hair are able to get the volume they want with angular, blunt cuts. Shorter cuts can also give the illusion of volume. While hair extensions aren’t for everyone, they are a great way to add volume. Some are more permanent and braided into natural hair, but some extensions can be easily put in with clips.
3. Blow Dry Your Hair the Right Way
Make sure you bow your head as you blow dry your hair. You’ll be able to get to the hair roots and add volume this way. Use clips or ties to section off hair as you dry different layers. If you need to add product to your hair, make sure that it is a light spray or mousse. Too much product will weigh your hair down, and make it feel greasy.
4. Use a Curling Iron
Perms are a great way to have volume all the time, but it’s not for everyone. For temporary fix, use a curling iron. Make sure there’s a heat spray, and curl your hair with an iron for some quick volume.
5. Try Shampoos, Conditioners, and Products that are Paraben, SLS & Gluten Free
Make sure that you are buying products that actually cater to fine hair. Avoid massed produced products, and go for shampoos and conditioners that are free of SLS and Parabens. Those ingredients are toxic chemicals that can damage your hair and make it look dull.
6. Backcomb Your Top Layers
Use a thin comb to tease the top layers of your hair.
