Best Hair Products for Fine Hair


Fine hair can be tough to work with. If you put too much product in the hair, it doesn't turn out pretty. If you use the wrong product? Same results. The right cut and the right product can work wonders for fine hair. So what are the best products out there for boosting limp locks? Below you'll find favorite for fine hair from top hair pros in the industry.

1. Phytovolume Maximizing Volume Shampoo

This gentle, volumizing cleanser thickens and adds body to fine, limp hair. Phytovolume Maximizing Volume Shampoo contains crustacean shell extract which helps the hair to retain moisture, causing it to swell for a fuller appearance. Yarrow extract helps with toning and has astringent benefits to give lift and bounce to the hair.

2. Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse

Kerastase Resistance Volumactive Mousse is a fabulous multi-tasking product that gives fine hair volume, shine, strength and protection. Volumeactive Mousse has a light hold but doesn't weigh the hair down or make it sticky. This product works overtime with anti-static, anti-frizz and built-in heat protection to guard against heat styling.

A little goes a long way, and I've found that if I overuse it the hair can get a bit sticky.

3. Bumble & bumble Thickening Spray

Bumble & bumble thickening spray is a goto product for boosting fine hair. Wheat proteins in this product help to thicken the hair while a light hold aids in styling. This product can be used on all types of hair, but I've found that it works the best on shoulder length or shorter haired clients.

4. Kevin Murphy Angel Rinse for Fine Hair

Fine haired ladies can be a little weary of using conditioner, but conditioning fine hair is one of the most important steps to take in making it look its best. When hair is dry or damaged it won't retain moisture which causes it to become flat and limp.

When it comes to fine hair not all conditioners are created equal, but you do have to find one that works. My favorite pick for fine hair is Kevin Murphy Angel Rinse. This light-weight moisturizer contains mango butter, cocoa butter and chamomile to gently repair damaged hair without weighing it down with waxes or oils. This product is the perfect pick for your fine haired client who says they hate conditioner.

5. Maximista Thickening Spray by Oribe

Maximista Thickening Spray by Oribe gives hair major volume while protecting it from heat styling and environmental elements. This product is a favorite amongst the finest haired clients as it helps to detangle and make blowdrying easier while adding tons of volume while still being lightweight. This product is sulfate, phosphate and paraben free and it is safe to use on colored and keratin treated hair.

Maximista Thickening Spray works best when sprayed from roots to ends throughout the hair.
