Find out what will work best for your fine locks with this hair advice.
Like all hair types, fine hair has its good and bad characteristics. To know how to make the most of your fine hair when it comes to hair length, haircuts, how it will work with hair color, and what products to choose, take this advice on board.
For the best results for fine hair, a haircut where the length falls anywhere between your chin and your shoulders is your best bet. This will get the weight of your hair at the right balance so it works for your finer locks, not against them. As for a cut, try to avoid anything too choppy or razored as it will get rid of any volume (and fine hair needs as much volume as it can get!). Instead, go for blunt ends or short layers.
Fine hair, especially if it’s very fine and thin, grabs onto color really well, which should result in excellent coverage and make it easy for you to hide any grey hair. If you’re coloring your hair at home, remember to leave the hair color on only for as long as recommended. As for hair color suggestions, always go with a color that will flatter your skin tone.
Any styling product that is going to add volume is the key for getting the best out of your fine hair. You also have to take the weight of the product into consideration also, because anything too heavy will weigh down your locks. Opt for lightweight hair products (think hairspray, light gels and mousses) that will inject some volume into your strands and you can’t go wrong!
