Too often I see my fellow fine haired woman struggling to love their hair, having to battle your hair every morning, just to get a little volume, only to have it fall when you go outside. Trust me, I get it. I get the frustration and the feeling of defeat when your hair can’t create the style you want. I’ve been there too. This was me, but not anymore. It’s taken me twenty-five years, but I love my fine hair. I love the shine and the softness that it naturally has, and I love my 8 minute blowout. I still battle it in the mornings, but I’ve found products that actually work! That’s what I want to share with you today so that you can love your hair too.
Shampoo for fine hair
To begin, we are going to talk about shampoo and conditioner. Now I know what you’re thinking, “if I use conditioner my hair will be flat to my scalp.” That not true. When you are shampooing, you are taking out all of the natural oils your hair needs to be healthy. If you don’t follow the shampoo with a light conditioner on your ends, your hair will do two things. First, it will get oilier because your scalp will feel like it needs to produce more oil. Secondly, your hair will get dry, and split ends will form. My favorite is Bumble and bumble.’s Thickening shampoo and conditioner. This is the best volumizing shampoo for instant body building! The conditioner has a modern formula that provides lightweight moisture – and contains Emblicatechnology, which expands each strand for voluminous, full-bodied styles. Pretty cool huh? You can’t go wrong with this shampoo and conditioner!
Styling products for fine hair
Now on to styling products! Out of the shower, I love to start with Bumble and bumble.’s Prep. I make sure to spray evenly and liberally (you literally can’t use too much) onto my damp hair. It is a super lightweight detangler that “preps” your hair into a fresh canvas. This is important so that styling products will go on more even, which means your styling products will work as they are intended to with no tacky spots. YAY!!
The first style product I use after my hair is prepped is Bumble and bumble.’s Thickening Spray. Now, this product is magic! It protects your hair from heat, adds volume, provides lift, control, and has memory! AMAZING. With Thickening Spray you’ll never have to worry about your hair falling when you go outside. I told you it was magic!
This next styling product is a definite favorite of mine. It’s the Bumble and bumble.’s Thickening Full Form Soft Mousse. This is a heat protecting mousse that creates volume and thickness that has NO CRUNCH. It’s 100% touchable. Can you believe that! You can have voluminous hair that you can still run your fingers through.
Finish with a texture spray
To finish this style off and make it our dream hair, we need a finishing product. For this, you have a few choices. If you want your style to stay just as it’s blown out, all you need is a hairspray. Now Bumble and bumble. has three great hairsprays, but my favorite is Bumble and bumble.’s Strong Hold. After spraying on your dry, freshly blow-dried hair, you’ll want to brush it out. This will keep your hair still touchable, with having that all night hold in your hair. Don’t worry, this product is flake free. If you’d like to finish your style with some texture. I’d recommend Bumble and bumble.’s Dryspun Texture spray. It’s a translucent, dry texturizing spray that provides instant fullness, airy texture, and light hold.
