fine hair, long hair style

Do you have fine hair but wish you had a thicker fuller head of hair? Are you tired of turning on the TV and seeing your favorite Hollywood star with long gorgeous hair that always looks plum and perfect? If you could wave a magic wand and have instantly thicker hair would you? For millions of Americans, having thicker hair may seem like a dream farfetched. But don’t worry, achieving this desirous dream may not be as difficult as you think. For many of us, our fine hair is the one thing on our body we wish could be a little fatter. Here are three hair styling tips you can try that will surly plump up your hair and help to make it so fine again.

Shampoo for Success

Start with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner as these are must haves for fine hair. These volumizing cleansers are the choice for most women with fine hair because they are very light weight, remove oils and product buildup, revitalize the scalp and clean the hair. Some professional volumizing shampoos can enhance the thickness of the hair strands by expanding the cortex thus providing amplified volume. Others deposit thickening polymers that create a coating around the hair creating more body. After shampooing, you’ll want to remove as much moisture with a towel as possible as this will allow for maximum effect from your product regimen.

Cocktail Party

No we’re not talking about the girl’s night out but a hair cocktail that is sure to give your blow-dry a fine boost. Before blow-drying, start with a root spray to stimulates circulation, create texture and add volume. Follow with a volumizing mouse that is light weight and adds body. A mousse containing hyaluronic acid is a great choice as this mineral helps the hair to attract and retain moisture allowing it to remain plump and hydrated. After blow-drying, finish with a texture spray to help build more volume and enhanced definition.

Fine Tools

You’ve shampooed for success and are ready for your cocktail party but are you equipped with the proper tools for your situation. To gain maximum volume for your fine locks, you’ll need a brush and blow-dryer to compliment your objective. When choosing a brush look for a vented ceramic round brush containing tourmaline. The ceramic and tourmaline combo will work to provide a quicker smoother longer lasting finish. When blow-drying use an air concentrator and wait until your hair is approximately 70% dry before beginning. Start by sectioning out the hair. Beginning at the bottom section, place your brush on the scalp and wrap a large section around the brush. Starting at the root of the hair, begin drying while keeping medium tension and working your way down the section to the ends.

Having fine hair doesn’t mean you can’t rock the locks. But to achieve an envious style full of body there are a few things you must first do. Yes, implementing just one of these recommendations will provide some benefit but why hold back. So go all in with your fine self and make your hair so fine again.
