If you look at the bright side, fine hair takes a shorter time to dry and style and also has a naturally silky texture. But, the struggle with fine hair is far more intense. Getting curls to stay put on fine hair can be frustrating and you will never know what ‘volume’ looks like! *phew*
But hang on… don’t give up already! Before you decide to just wear your hair down every single day (because styling is another pain, of course), here’s a hair care routine that can actually bump up your hair. From washing your hair with a volumising shampoo to spritzing some texturizing spray, here’s the hair care regimen you religiously need to follow:
Step 01: Shampoo
The worst thing about fine hair is that it tends to get greasy easily. The shaft of the hair is smoother and less porous than coarser hair types, so the oils sit prominently on top of the hair. It is, therefore, ideal to wash your hair more frequently. However, regardless of how often you wash your hair, where you apply shampoo makes a huge difference too. You need to apply shampoo on the top of your head where there’s product build-up. We suggest you use the Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Volume Hair Shampoo which not only gives your hair volume and natural bounce but also makes it soft and smooth.
Step 02: Condition
Always, always follow up shampoo with conditioner. Apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips as the ends are drier and in dire need of moisture. Avoid applying conditioner on the top as doing so will flatten your hair, making it look thinner than before. Over conditioning your roots is a strict no-no as it will cause excess greasiness. Use the Sunsilk Coconut and Aloe Vera Volume Hair Conditioner; it will help instantly detangle your hair and make it more manageable.
BB Pro tip: Massage your scalp for a few minutes while in the shower. Massaging improves blood flow in the scalp and stimulates the hair follicles which in turn promote hair growth and thickness; just what your fine hair needs!
Step 03: Blow dry
A blow dryer can be your best friend! Let’s admit it; styling fine hair can be a difficult task because any hairstyle, be it braids or ponytail, will end up looking flat. That’s when a blow dryer can come to the rescue. Giving your hair a proper blow out can make it look thicker and voluminous. Use a round brush for extra volume and dry your roots with your hair upside down for extra lift at the crown.
Step 4: Texturizing spray
For fine hair, you don’t want to use products that will weigh your hair down. Instead of hair oil, hair creams/lotions or serums, it’s best you use a texturizing spray such as the TONI & GUY Hair Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray. This will add texture to your hair without weighing it down. Once you have locked your hairstyle in place, finish it off by spritzing a texturizing hairspray.
