Those who have fine hair, sometimes feel as if they are a burden to them. While we won’t say they are a burden, but looking at limp and lifeless hair sometimes definitely leaves you sad and frustrated. In this day and age, where there are products, tips and tricks for almost anything, we don’t find it difficult to take care of fine hair either. First of all, you need to know if you have fine hair or not. Fine hair does not mean the thickness or thinness of your mane, but of the individual strand. So, it does not matter how many hairs you have on your head, they can be fine, if they are lifeless and extremely FINE! You can take care of your locks and give them volume and shine you always wanted just by following a routine that helps and protects your hair. Here is a brief guide for women with fine hair.
How To Wash Them?
To understand how to take care of fine hair and to lead them towards the betterment, you need to know the condition of your hair. What you need to know is that the fine hair is smallest in the diameter. This means that there are more hairs per square centimeter. Hence, it does not mean that you are short of hair. It just implies that your hair has been structured in a different way to accommodate the mane. People who have fine hair tend to have greasy hair. Actually, this is one of the problems associated with fine hair that boggles those who have it. While dry shampoo and lace front wigs are a saviour, it is quite irritating to have greasy and super oily hair. This happens because each hair follicle has its own oil gland. It takes less time for your mane to get greasy when you compare it to that of your friends or family. To counter this situation, the dermatologists recommend washing your hair with a volumising formula free from any harsh chemicals every day. The shampoo and conditioner that you use must be lightweight, as it won’t weight down your hair. Those who use dry shampoo, should apply it at night so your hair has a better time absorbing all that oil easily.
Cut & Color:
We all know that fine hair is weaker and are prone to loss and damage than any other hair type. Those who belong to this category know that their hair has the tendency to turn limp, weak and develop split ends within no days. It is a natural instinct to cut your hair when such conditions happen. Hence, you must trim your hair every eight to ten weeks to get rid of split ends and prevent any major hair damage. If you want to grow your hair and a cut every two months is hindering the progress, we do not mean any fancy cut here, but something that will help your hair get a fresh appearance. Not just fine hair, but everyone should get a haircut within the mentioned time slot. To make your hair look fuller, take a very blunt type of cut instead of razor ends. If you intend to get your hair colored, what’s better than opting for a hue that can make your locks look fuller? People with fine hair also have gray hair, so to cover them, they should also take a root touch-up every four to six weeks. Do not pull the color through the ends every time and do it depending on how faded your ends are. Because fine hair can be porous, the color can turn out to be darker than planned. Hence, be a little careful.
Styling Your Hair:
This might probably be the best part, because all the products including Volumizing sprays, texturizers and root lifters out there are meant to be used by fine-haired people. Try organic dry shampoos when you want to get a blow-dry in-between your shampooing cycle or otherwise as well. They not only help get rid of the oil, as mentioned above, but will also help clog the pores that destroy your hair-styling. Now, you know what to do, when you have an event next day and you don’t have time to wash your hair. Moreover, use a round boar-and-nylon bristle brush to blow-dry your hair, so you get a definition and volume.
