4 Things Every Girl With Fine Hair Should Do Immediately

I have incredibly fine hair and have learned over the years what to do to make the best out of my situation: I wash it regularly (or else it looks greasy AF), blow dry it upside (to get some volume in to the root), and only condition the ends.

Over the years, my stylist Dayna Goldstein of Ted Gibson Salon has shared some pretty great tips for managing my hair. They’re so good, in fact, that I just had to share them with my fellow fine-haired girls. Here are Dayna’s gems:

Get the right haircut. Before we get to upkeep, let’s start with the cut. Dayna warns, “Over-layering very fine hair will only make it appear thinner and stringy. For short hair, a good style is one with some graduation which builds weight to the hair, helping it to appear thicker. For long cuts, make sure the layers are on the longer side.” Make sure your stylist gives you something like this!

If you’re looking for something more dramatic than long layers, Dayna suggests trying a blunt haircut with bangs to “help the hair look thicker.”

Use sea salt or volumizing sprays. Girls with fine hair might think that they need to avoid styling products like the plague–but it’s such a myth that they weight hair down. Dayna swears by certain products for texturizing and voluming fine hair (which it definitely needs!): “Sea salt sprays give the hair some texture.” She also suggests using volumizing sprays for dry or wet hair.

Check if your shampoo or conditioner contain silicone. Go to the bathroom, pick up your products, and read the fine print. Dayna says, “Shampoos and conditioners along with drying products (like certain hair oils) that have silicone in them will cause build-up rather, which overtime will weigh down the hair.”

Don’t go too heavy on the conditioner! “Just apply to mid length and ends, and just enough to nourish the hair without weighing it down,” she says.

There you have it! Girls with fine hair–which tips will you try immediately?
