Your Fine Hair is Manageable

Written by

Are you envious of every shampoo commercial you see? You probably have fine hair. You would eat nothing but pickled pigs feet if it meant that you could get hair half as thick as those models in the commercials.

Fine hair is not the same as thin or thinning hair. Your fine hair is manageable as well as workable, which means that it will suit most styles and will hold shape far better than any other kind of hair. The key to a great hair style for fine hair is a good cut with the right length and proper styling aids that promote volume, shine and movement.

Fine, straight hair shows every scissor mark, so look for a good stylist with talent in precision cutting. Explore hair styles like layers and heavy bangs. They look very good on straight, fine hair with normal hair density and give the overall illusion of fuller hair. See some samples of layered hair styles that are suitable and works. When selecting a hair style, keep to shoulder length or shorter cuts. Avoid styles that involve razor cuts, as they only make your hair look shredded.

Avoid hair styles that require excessive blow drying as this tends to dry out your hair, makes it even more susceptible to breakage than it already is and could even lead to dandruff or greasy hair as result. Keep upon managing your split ends as fine hair tends to split easily.

If your hair density is lower than normal (thin) then you have less hair and you should try to avoid styles that involve excess layering or texturizing. Certain blunt haircuts with subtle or soft layers will look much better on you. Bob haircuts combined with shaggy styles will be a good starting point. (see some samples of bob hair styles). If you have soft, and naturally wavy hair then you can go for a short, layered hair style. This is a manageable style for wavy fine hair. You can look for different haircuts and get inspiration in our style gallery.

The length can be your Enemy. Short hair sample with layered haircut Most people find it easier to care for their fine hair when it’s shorter but this is not THE Golden rule. Normally it’s better not to let it beyond shoulder-length and trim them regularly to avoid split ends (that goes for any hair, but for fine hair it’s a must). Let your hair grow as long as it looks healthy and manageable. In certain length it will start to go flat and when it does, it may be time to go for the chop.

There are countless hair care products that are designed to add body, volume and the illusion of fullness to fine hair. Although the ingredients may vary, the end result is that these hair products are designed to adhere to the surface of your hair to create a thickening layer.

Your needs for thickening products will increase as you grow them longer. If you want to keep you hair longer then look for products that contain liquid keratin or silk protein as these substances penetrate and also coat the surface of hair and provide a much stronger and firmer structure. An yes, it become thicker.

Always use light conditioners and use less leave-in conditioners or intensive treatments. Make sure the product contain a powerful blend of proteins (help strengthen), ceramide (cuticle reinforcement) and other supporting ingredients like sucro-polymers.

But be careful with hot styling tools. Choose your hot styling tools like hair curler or flat iron with care. For thin fragile fine hair use those with adjustable temperature control and never use settings over 340-350 F. Fine hair types are easy to shape with lower temperature and you won’t need any higher settings. Pairing that with the right hair style products for fine hair will give the hair more shape and body.

Thickening products like Nioxin are applied on hair root and scalp. It will coats the hair shaft and literally increase the diameter of each existing hair strand and make it manageable and resilience against hair breakage. Nioxin is available at Salon F.

Color is a great way to inject vitality and helps the hair appear fuller and thicker. You can ask your stylist for Semi-Permanent hair color treatment first. These type of hair color treatments normally last for 6-8 weeks. Color pigments partially penetrate the hair shaft but also coat the surface of hair and makes your hair strands thicker.

For short hair cuts, you can highlights or lowlights to add interest and tone. This will also gives fine hair a soft texture and appearance of a lot more volume. For example with under-color technique, stylist can place darker color on lower layer and lighter color on top layers to create more depth. I strongly recommend that you don’t color your hair at home and get some expert advice on hair color. Fine hair is easy to damage or break and over the counter hair colors are formulated differently than professional colors and aren’t always compatible with each other.
