The terms "fine" and "thin" are describing two different hair types. Thin
refers to the amount of hair on the head, which is sparse. Fine refers to the
thickness of the hair itself, the diameter of the hair shaft is the opposite
of thick. People with thin hair can have hair that, in and of itself, is thick
or coarse, they just don't have a lot of it. People with fine hair can have a
ton of hair on their head, the strands are just skinny. With both hair types,
many people suffer from hair that goes flat and lacks volume.
If you have fine hair or thin hair, you know it needs special attention. Not only is it delicate, but it probably lacks the fullness and volume you want. Remedies for thin hair should start with a great Hair Style for Thin Hair; a great volume-enhancing haircut is essential when you have thin or fine hair. The hair should then be maintained with volume-building hair care products. The right hair care products can be utilized to give hair more volume, which results in a a thicker appearance. Look for hair care products with words like volume, weightless, and thickening in the title. Like Color Lover Volume Boost products or the Lanza Healing Volume line.
Fine or thin hair can tend to be fragile.
It's important that you protect it and do what you can to thicken it.
You can do this simply through the use of volume-enhancing hair
products. There are volume shampoos, volume conditioners, and volume
boosting styling products that can actually help thicken your hair, if
even just a little. Like
Lover Volume Boost products or the
Lanza Healing Volume
line. One of the most important steps in this process is
your conditioning treatment. If you are one of the many who refuse to
use a conditioner try adding
Color Lover VOLUME 2-Phaxe
it was specifically designed to help you and all the other folks who
think as you do. Just spray it on and leave it in. You won't know it is
there but your hair will be thanking you for years to come.
A conditioning treatment for thin or fine hair needs to be specifically formulated for thin or fine hair. If you have one of these hair types, don't go out and buy a moisture conditioner. Most quality hair product companies have Volume Conditioners or Masques. These are specially formulated to condition your hair without adding extra weight to it. Ideally, they should also contain Wheat or more recently Quinoa Proteins. The Proteins are the key ingredients in a good volume-enhancing hair product. By adding these proteins to the hair product, they actually bond to the hair and help to increase the thickness of the hair shaft. The best way to get the essential Quinoa or WheatProteins into the hair shaft is to use a Heat Cap.
It is possible to go to a salon and get a conditioning treatment for thin or fine hair, but this can get expensive and will take about 1 hour for the treatment, in addition to your normal drying & styling time. If you want to save time & money instead of treating yourself to a salon visit, , like most of us would, you can actually give yourself a conditioning treatment for thin or fine hair at home. For a fraction of the cost, you can give yourself a conditioning treatment for fine / thin hair in the comfort of your own home and at your convenience. think of it as multi-tasking. You know condition your hair while reading a book or catching up on other things on your "to do" list..
One of two volume enhancing conditioning treatments for thin or fine hair that we recommend to you. The first is the Lanza Ultimate Treatment. The great thing about this treatment is that it is completely customizable for your hair type. If you have combination hair, hair that is fine/thin and dry or damaged, you can customize the treatment by mixing and matching the Power Boosters that come with the treatment. The SECOND treatment we recommend is the Lanza Lanza Emergency Service for breaking or damaged hair. This is a 2-part deal. Part 1 builds a scaffolding around each hair shaft and part 2 sets the scaffolding so it remains in place. The first folks we tested the Lanza Emergency Service on had fine thin, breaking hair. They all like the results and the difference the Emergency Service made in their hair. It is not a one time deal as it wears off and needs to be refreshed with a repeat Emergency Service Treatment.
Treat your hair according to your hair's needs. If your ends are dry, apply extra conditioner only to the ends of your strands. Try Schwarzkopf Bonacure Sealed Ends, available in both Repair Rescue or Color Save formulas.
The rule of thumb for fine or thin hair should be that a little goes a long way. Avoid regular or heavy hot oil, instead use White Sands Orchids Oil. Use deep conditioning treatments, like the one mentioned above, designed for fine, thin, or limp hair. If you want another really light-weight silk treatment, Lanza makes Neem Plant Silk Serum which works well on fine or thin hair, without weighing hair down.
Most people with fine hair have discovered that they need to shampoo,
condition and style their fine hair from scratch every day, and
sometimes twice a
day if they have an important occasion. If you find your hair needs a
pick-me-up and you don't have time to shampoo, condition and style, your answer is
volumizing hair powder! Yes, believe it or not you can sprinkle on a
