Fine hair appears flat and limp, usually because it contains excess
moisture. By keeping your fine hair clean and dry, it will exhibit more
body and shine. Be careful when treating your hair with chemicals,
whether coloring or perming, and use a shampoo recommended for fine
hair. Equally important is the conditioner that will penetrate each
hair filament. One secret is to use the conditioner sparingly, treating
the middle to ends of the hair and trying to avoid the scalp. For
untreated hair, with no chemical processing, avoid using the
conditioner. If the roots are free from a conditioning agent, your hair
will be fuller and fluffier.
After washing and towel-drying fine hair, use your blow-dryer to remove all moisture from the roots, then follow up with a styling lotion, intended to add volume to your hair but without weighing your hair down. Make certain that you cut your hair regularly with the intention of removing split ends. The longer your hair, the more difficult it will be to handle if you have fine hair, so opt for shorter cuts.
If you do prefer longer hair, use rollers on dried hair, then add a light hair spray and apply heat. Keep your ends blunt and regularly treat your hair with protein to give it strength and body. A perm or a color treatment will help to add body to hair that is naturally fine and ultimately limp. If you continue to have problems creating and maintaining the desired style, a visit to your stylist will be in order as they will be able to offer suggestions and solve rudimentary problems.
