How To Take Care Of Your Beautiful Fine Hair

When it comes to taking care of different hair types it requires some specialist attention to ensure that we are actually doing what is best for our hair. In this article we take a closer look at what one does if they have been blessed with fine hair.

Washing

Because fine hair is small in diameter, there are more hairs per square centimetre. Each hair follicle has its own oil gland, so it takes less time for you to get greasy compared with your thick-haired friends. To avoid limp strands, wash every day to every other day using a volumising formula which are lightweight and won’t weigh down your hair.

Cutting

Trim your hair every 8 to 10 weeks. Fine hair tends to be weaker and can’t take as much abuse as medium/course hair can, leading to quickly split ends. Ask for very light layers or a more blunt type of cut (as opposed to getting the ends snipped into or razored). This will make your hair appear fuller.

Colouring

Fresh, vibrant colour can make hair look and feel fuller. To cover greys, touch up your roots every four to six weeks. Just refrain from pulling the colour through the ends. Only do that every other time, depending on how faded your ends are. Fine hair can be porous, which means it can grab colour quickly and look darker than planned. If you get highlights, space out your appointments to every eight weeks to avoid overlapping the bleach, which can weaken strands and lead to breakage.

Styling

Volumising sprays, root lifters, and texturisers, like our ELEVEN I Want Body range or Sea Salt Spray, are a boon to any fine-haired woman. When it comes to blow-drying, get an added boost by using a round boar-and-nylon–bristle brush. In between washes, try a dry shampoo. It contains rice and cornstarch instead of talc or silica, which gives it extra volume and thickness.

And Here’s A Great Suggestion…

Apply dry shampoo at night—not in the morning. This will give it more time to absorb excess oil, and any tossing and turning you do will give your hair more texture and volume the next day.
