Five easy tips to style thin fine hair. There’s a lot of advice on the web about how to style thin fine hair. What I’d like to share with you today are the tips and products that have helped me. My hair is baby-fine and thin, but having natural curls does help with the appearance of “more” hair. Without any styling or products, however, I have a pretty prominent exposed scalp on my crown, blergh. But I’ve found fixes if not permanent cures.
This unassuming gel gets me off to a good start. Most any gel will add texture to your hair, and provide hold. The Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel is my latest favorite; I find it does thicken individual hairs. This goes on my wet hair after water-only shampooing (once a week). I scrunch and let it air-dry.
Clips and pins create the magic for curly hair. When my hair is damp, I make finger curls and spirals, and clip them in place with small plastic clips. I rarely blow-dry, but my hair air-dries quickly and I get nice, lifted curls this way. If your hair is straight, a good blow-dry is the way to go (see vid below).
A dry shampoo adds volume. I wish I’d invented it; this stuff is great! I have the TRESemme Between Washes as my current favorite; there are lots of good ones. Most days I just lift the top layer of hair on my crown and shoot some dry shampoo underneath. It has a nice fragrance, and I get fluffier hair in 30 seconds.
A sprinkle of hair fibers on my widening back part. I’m using Toppik brand fibers in pure white, as my thinning areas are almost that color now. About eight shakes, and a bit of floofing around the thin spots is all it takes. This stuff is not cheap, but it does a reliable job of creating the look of more hair. I’m worth it.
Wigs, baby, wigs. Wigs are my hair version of a miracle cure. They keep getting better and more natural looking. Today I wore my Jones wig in silver-white, and did not have to fuss with my baby hair at all. 😊
Stay fabulous, love the hair you’ve got, and enjoy every sandwich, xo
