Fine vs. Thin hair

There’s a difference.  Thin or thinning hair is when one is losing their hair.

Fine hair is a full head of hair but the hair is fine.  Each hair has a very narrow circumference.

What are the best haircuts for fine hair?

The two best haircuts are bobs and pixies.

Within those two main cut styles, you have plenty of options including layers, textures, tapering, feathering, messy/loose, etc.

Can you add volume to fine hair?

You can try volumizing shampoos and conditioners and sprays and if that works, terrific.  If not, accept it and get a cut/style that works well with fine hair.  Frankly, instead of trying to make long work with a bunch of product, I think getting a cut that works with the hair without product is best.

Treat it well

Fine hair, as you’d expect and perhaps as you’ve experienced, can damage easily.  This is another reason to go easy on the product as well as applying heat to it.  It’s not that you can’t apply heat, but get a great hairdryer for fine that has temperature control options.

I would avoid excessive use of other heat-applying hair appliances such as crimpers and curling irons; the risk is too high. Why damage otherwise beautiful hair?

Another process to avoid is coloring it too much.  Most fine hair is blonde, but there’s also gray and even brunette fine hair.  Coloring can be hard on hair so minimize doing it and if you do it, opt for a more natural product even if it costs more.
