Do you have fine hair? Fine hair is different from thin or thinning hair and means that the diameter of your hair strand is small. You were born with fine hair as opposed to thinning hair, which you can acquire as you get older. You can have a lot or a little fine hair on your scalp. We often refer to fine hair as “baby hair.”

Having fine hair can slightly limit you to what hairstyles you can adopt. Some styles simply look and hold better on women with thicker hair. Also, some hairstyles suit fine haired beauties better than thick haired ones. It’s always best to work with what you’ve got.
That being said, many products have been introduced to help make fine hair feel and look thicker. There are now shampoos, mousses, creams, sprays, and gels to help thicken fine hair for styling. It may be a trial-and-error product test-run before you find the products that are right for your hair.
Here is a list of a few of our favorite hair products to help give volume and fullness to fine hair.
Many fine-haired women prefer to wear their hair short as they get older. This is, of course, a personal preference, and there is nothing wrong with wearing your thin hair long if you wish.
Having fine and thinning hair at the same time can often leave your scalp looking bare. One way to take the attention away from your scalp is to color your hair a similar color to your scalp and to keep the hair short. This way there won’t be a heavy contrast between your hair and your scalp.
Another way to cover more scalp area and to make curly fine hair look thicker is to straighten natural curls. You can also style a side-part to bring more cover to the top of your scalp.
Feeling bold and trendy? Opt for a messy and choppy look for your fine hair. Use a thickening and texturizing product to achieve the look. Be careful not to use an oily texturizer as this can weigh your fine hair down. You can also take it a step further and add a fun color, like red or purple.
You have to go easy on the layering when you have fine hair. Layers can take away volume from fine hair – and definitely stay away from the feathered layers. Go for longer layers that still provide movement but won’t make your hair look thinner.
