Fine Hair? Here’s The Products You Need For Thin Fine Hair

Fine hair that looks limp and lifeless can definitely be a bummer. But just because you were born with fine hair doesn’t mean you have to suffer with flat locks forever! From the types of products you should use to the daily habits you should avoid, here's everything you need to know about caring for your fine hair.

If you have fine hair, the diameter of each individual strand will be thin – but you will most likely have an abundance of hairs on your head. All you need to know is the right way to care for and style fine hair. Whether you have fine hair, fine thin hair, or short fine hair, keep reading!

What is Fine Hair?

Fine hair is a kind of hair texture that refers to hair strands that have a small circumference. If you have fine hair, you probably already know it! Fine hair is very prone to tangling and highly susceptible to greasiness. Also, since the strands are so fine, this hair type is more prone to split ends and even breakage (leading to short fine hairs).

If you’re not sure if you have fine hair, try this simple test. Pluck a strand of hair and rub it between your fingers. If you can’t feel the hair between your fingers, you have fine hair.

But don’t despair! There’s nothing wrong with having fine hair (or any other type for that matter). In fact, there are definitely some benefits to having fine hair. For example, fine hair requires far less product than other hair types, which means you’ll save money in the long run. It’s also quick and easy to style fine hair (provided that you know the right techniques for styling fine hair – more on that later).

What’s the Difference Between Fine and Thin Hair?

Fine hair refers to the diameter of the individual hair strand, while thin hair refers to the density of the hair. Hair density is how many hairs are on your scalp and how close together they are. Both fine hair and thin hair are linked to genetics, but they can also be caused by lifestyle factors like poor diet and stress.

While fine hair is often also considered thin hair, you can actually have thick fine hair (fine strands with high density) or coarse, thin hair (thick strands with low density). However, whether you have fine hair, fine thin hair, or short fine hair, your hair care routine will basically be the same.

5 Tips on How to Care for Fine Hair

1. Take Your Vitamins

Take Your Vitamins

As the old adage goes, you are what you eat. Your hair follicles require certain nutrients in order to grow hair as efficiently as possible. If you’re lacking nutrients, you could wind up with brittle or thinning hair.

To keep your locks as healthy and strong as possible, incorporate Hairlust Hair Formula Gummies for Women into your daily routine. These gummies are loaded with hair-loving vitamins and minerals like Biotin, Vitamin C, and Zinc. Plus, they come in a delicious gummy form which makes them so much easier to remember each day. When it comes to vitamins, consistency is key!

2. Eat More Protein

Eat More Protein

Your hair is made up of a protein called keratin, so it makes sense that eating protein is vital to growing healthy, strong hair. To help fine thin hair, make sure you get plenty of protein-rich foods into your diet. Need some ideas? Besides meat, poultry, and fish, some plant-based forms of protein include tofu, lentils, beans, and nuts. You can also try adding collagen powder to your favorite drinks for extra protein.

3. Eliminate Build-Up

Eliminate Build-Up

All hair types are prone to build-up from hard water, products, and scalp oils, but if you have fine thin hair, that build-up can easily make your hair look limp and lifeless. Not what you want! To give your hair and scalp a deep cleaning and promote more voluminous hair, use the organic Scalp Delight™ Detox Scrub on the reg.

Healthy scalps grow healthy hair. To make sure that your scalp is in optimal condition for hair growth, use the organic Grow Perfect™ Thickening Spray after each wash. This leave-in treatment contains scalp-soothing ingredients like organic aloe leaf juice and cloudberry fruit extract. Plus, it’s formulated with Gluadin® Kera-P LM and Protectagen™, two active blends, which boosts circulation to the scalp as well as support hair growth.

5. Take Care of Your Lengths

Take Care of Your Lengths

Fine hair is more delicate, so it’s more likely to sustain damage and break off than other types. If you are going for a short fine hair look like a pixie cut or bob, then you don’t need to worry too much about this step. If you want a longer look, you’ll have to be very diligent when caring for your lengths.

Hair — especially fine thin hair — is more susceptible to breakage when it’s wet. Thus, you have to be extra careful when detangling your hair after washing it. To safely detangle wet fine hair, use the Wet Hair Detangler Brush to gently work out knots, starting at the ends of the hair while the hair is still wet. The Wet Brush is made with soft bristles that gently detangle snarls without pulling on fine hair. Plus, it has an ergonomic design that’s easier to use than a standard comb.

After having used the wet brush to detangle wet hair, don't use a regular cotton towel to dry your hair. Maybe you’re not aware that drying your hair with a cheap towel is one of the most harmful things, you can do to your hair. Instead, let your thin hair dry naturally or even better with a Bamboo Hair Towel Wrap. Bamboo towels are incredibly gentle and good for thin fine hair compared to cotton.

Common Fine Hair Concerns & How to Combat Them

Hair Tangles

If you have fine thin hair, you probably already know that fine hair is extra prone to tangles. Unfortunately, combing out your hair all the time can also lead to unwanted breakage. What’s a girl to do?

Movement and friction from exercise and wind can leave fine hair in knots, so prevent tangles from happening in the first place by wearing your hair in protective styles like braids any time you’re exercising or spending long periods of time outdoors.

Keeping your hair moisturized also prevents tangles. We hope this goes without saying, but you should always use a conditioner after washing your hair to keep your hair moisturized! If you find you need extra moisture, try using a leave-in conditioner to eliminate tangle-causing dryness.

Greasiness

Fine thin hair is more prone to greasiness than thicker, coarser hair types. Why? Because it’s easier for your scalp’s natural oils to travel down finer strands.

To keep greasiness at bay, wash hair with a gentle shampoo like Split Fix™ Shampoo or Grow Perfect™ Shampoo 1 to 3 times per week. These shampoos don’t contain sulfates, so they won’t strip your hair and leave it dry (which, as you already know, will lead to tangles). When conditioning hair, only apply the product at ear level and below where your hair needs moisture most. If your hair gets too greasy between washes, spritz roots with a dry shampoo to soak up extra oil.

Flat, Lifeless Hair

If not styled correctly, fine thin hair can look flat and lifeless. Luckily, you can amp up the volume with a few easy styling tips and tricks.

For extra hair volume and body, blow-dry hair upside down and finish with Final Touch Hair Spray!

Other hair-volumizing tips:

  • Make sure to dry hair 100% before you leave the house and give it a good brush before you go. 
  • Use a light hand with all styling products. Fine thin hair doesn’t require much product and using too much product will just weigh hair down, making it look limp and lifeless.
  • In a pinch, you can always switch your part! Moving your part over just an inch can give you some much-needed lift and volume at the roots.

Best Haircuts & Styles for Fine Hair

Choosing a flattering haircut or hairstyle for fine thin hair will go a long way towards making your hair look its best. These are some of the best looks for fine hair:

Long Bangs

Fine hair is more prone to breakage, which can lead to many short fine hairs around your face called baby hairs. Sometimes taking a hair supplement can help grow out short fine hairs and make hair look thicker. Another solution is to cut long bangs into your hair. By bringing more volume to the area around your face, you make your hair look thicker and fuller.

The Bob

Keeping your fine thin hair cropped can make it look thicker and fuller with little effort. Why? Because long hair weighs down hair, making it look limp and lifeless—short hair gives it a lift! Whether you choose a chin-length bob or a shoulder-skimming lob, a shorter haircut is an excellent choice for fine thin hair.

The Pixie

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, a Pixie cut can really do wonders for fine thin hair. Plus, it’s SO easy and quick to style. A pixie isn’t for everyone, but you should definitely consider this short fine hair cut!

Slicked Back

Slicked back hair is so easy for ladies with fine hair to pull off. You have far fewer flyaways to tame than other hair types! Plus, slicked back hair always looks polished and pulled together.

Messy Waves

Messy waves add much-needed texture to fine thin hair, which can make it look thicker. If you have naturally wavy hair, consider air drying your hair with a little texturizing spray. If not, you can always fake waves with a curling wand. Just make sure to apply heat protectant beforehand!

What Are the Best Products for Fine Thin Hair?

Ready for your shopping list? Here’s all the products you need to make the most of your fine thin hair:

  1. Hair Growth Supplements - Strengthens fine thin hair from the inside out. 
  2. Grow Perfect™ Thickening Spray - Keeps your scalp healthy and boosts volume at the roots for thicker-looking hair. 
  3. Scalp Delight™ Detox Scrub - Eliminates build-up that weighs fine hair down. 
  4. Protein Repair™ Hair Mask - Reinforces fine thin hair with a blend of vegetable proteins to prevent breakage and split ends. 
  5. Wet Hair Detangler Brush - Gently and safely detangles snarl-prone fine hair.
