- Choosing the right type of shampoo and conditioner for fine hair
The biggest problem with fine hair is lack of volume and how quickly it can get greasy. To cope with this problem, we typically recommend using a volumizing shampoo and no conditioner… ( if you feel you MUST use conditioner, just a tiny bit of a very light conditioner on the ends!) It is always better to choose a shampoo that is sulfate and paraben free.
Before brushing your hair, apply a very small about of styling cream or hair serum.
*** FINE HAIR TIP! Never brush fine hair when it is wet. Fine hair is fragile to begin with, and is MOST fragile when wet. Remove moisture with a blow dryer before brushing it!
Use hairspray to hold the volume… a little bit of hairspray both before and after styling with give your fine hair volume.
