Best Products for Fine Hair

For the fine haired philly’s, life can be tough, making every strand count is your mantra! Those with finer hair know all too well things can head south pretty quickly if you use the wrong products or don’t know how to work with your hair. Hairstyling is tough for most people. However for those with fine hair, if your cut is poor, it’s harder than it needs to be. Finding a haircutter who understands and “gets” your hair type, your face shape, and your own styling ability is no mean feat! But when the stars align and you do find that special stylist “Magic Happens” those with fine hair should make sure their hair is cut shoulder length or shorter.

Products and know how are your next mission. What to do and what not to do that is the real question of life! So I will give you the low down to raise up those follicles and feel fuller haired and fancy-free! In the age of “Alexa” and “insta stories” you have more information and how to tutorials at your fingertips to combat those flat hair days and the ability to order these lifesaving products I am about to share with you in an instant.

Let’s CLARIFY things

Yes, WE need to CLARIFY things! Clarifying your hair is very important- for everyone but especially for those with fine hair. It removes harmful pollutants and product build-up from your strands so they are revitalized. You can simply achieve this with a homemade solution of 1tbsp of Baking Soda mixed with two of white vinegar, work this into your scalp then through to your ends. Make sure you rub it into your hair well and then after 3-4 mins rinse thoroughly. This is super important for those with finer hair as the product can weigh your hair down and halt any volume you may be trying to achieve.

Wash in VOLUME

Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to start the volumizing process. However, when applying the conditioner, make sure you only apply that very sparingly on your ends. Conditioner can weigh down your hair and make it tougher to achieve the volume your desire. Bumble and Bumble Full Potential Hair preserving Conditioner.

Leave In Treatments

StriVectin Hair Ultimate Restore Densifying Foaming Treatment $44 will strengthen your hair and stop breakage and any thinning that may occur and it also helps with encouraging new growth. Clinical studies show this product, after five treatments, increased the hair fiber diameter by 8.5%! This product is definitely a worthy purchase for those out there with fine hair.
For lived-in beachy hair, FATBOY SEA SALT POMADE is perfect for those who want that beachy lived in look, giving you the texture and finish of a sea salt spray but with the flexibility of cream pomade. Its lightweight and creamy formula creates that beachy texture, without drying out the hair. Using sparingly, lightly scrunch this or move through your hair to add a cool texture without the weight.

Spray in volume without the weight

I LOVE Bumble and Bumble Dry Spun for a translucent, dry texturizing spray that gives instant fullness and airy texture. Raw silk powders with light holding polymers adhere to your hair instantly for a soft texture to make hair look airy, weightless, and effortlessly full. It’s heavenly! This formula is perfect for lifting roots, adding texture, blow-outs, and boosting second-day hair. Perfect for those with fine hair.
