All The Things You Can Do For Your Fine Hair! (part 2)

girl touching her fine hair

Fine hair can be straight or curly, oily or/and dry, but all fine hair combinations have one thing in common; they are fragile by structure and easily damaged! This hair texture is the smoothest by nature, but it lacks the ability to hold on to a hairstyle. Especially if your fine hair is straight, you probably think that you’ve read and tried all fine hair tips available to give that magical boost to your flat hair.

And maybe you have tried them or maybe you’re still on the search.

Either way, my goal is to give you a full list of tips and ideas and hopefully a good solution that will make you and your fine hair happy!

Therefore, using the right products and stick to the right hair care habits, is essential for hair beauty and health.

Did you miss the 1st part of “All the things you can do for your fine hair”? I would suggest you take a look. It’s about washing and conditioning fine hair properly, which is the first piece of the puzzle. It’s exactly where fine hair care begins!

Ok, now we can dive into the 2nd part of the fine hair series and if you think more stuff that I haven’t covered here, please share them in the comments below. Let’s help each other.


Part 2: Fine Hair Tips
5 + 15 more!


check icon  Use the towel gently


After washing and conditioning, you should towel-dry your hair to get most of the water out of your hair. Gently blot your hair and don’t rub it harshly because you’ll cause damage and frizz. Instead cover it up and wait for 5-10 minutes to absorb the water.

More fine hair tips:

1) If you want to speed up the drying time, unwrap the wet towel and use another one to cover your hair again. Preferably use a water-absorbing microfiber towel, to take the moisture faster.

2) Flip your head over and wrap your hair with the towel, to create more volume to the roots as they dry. This is what I do, if I want to avoid using excessive heat on my hair. The longer I let my hair dry with the towel, the more volume I have on my roots afterwards.

For your fine hair, you need hair products which are designed for lifting the roots, adding height and don’t weigh your hair down.

3) It’s best to opt for light mousses and hairsprays.

4) Avoid heavy gels, oily creams and thick serums.

5) Take the towel off and while still damp apply the root lift hair product. Pour a small amount into your hand, and rub it firstly into your palms and then on your scalp and lengths. Comb from roots to tips until it’s evenly distributed. Or make hair sections, run your comb through the mousse into your hand to get just a little bit of product and comb the section. Repeat for each section.

6) You might need this step if you have long hair that doesn’t dry easily. When you apply the root lift hair product, flip your head over and wrap your hair with the second towel for another 10 minutes or so, to absorb the remaining water (note: always consider the product’s application instructions and follow accordingly).

7) Always check your hair products to have thickening or volumizing agents, otherwise it will be hard to give it structure. Texturizing powders or sprays are applied on dry roots or lengths after blow drying to thicken the hair. They coat the hair to give it a textured look.

8) Dry shampoos aren’t really styling products, but they do volumize fine hair textures. You could use it between washing days to refresh your hair and to absorb excess oil from your scalp. Don’t use it too often though, because it can dry your hair or cause itchiness if your skin is sensitive.

I understand, sometimes it’s just boring or it takes too much of your time! However, try to consider the heat protectant for hair as the equivalent of sunscreen for the face and the skin. And it takes only two minutes to apply! So don’t skip it if you’re going to blow-dry or use hot styling tools, ok?

And just because I don’t want us to fool ourselves, no heat protectant is really the ultimate protection against heat damage. But without it, things can get a lot worse for our hair and faster!

More fine hair tips:

9) Use the thermal protective product while your hair is still wet.


check icon  Use the diffuser when blow-drying

diffuser-fine-hairAfter you have used the thermal protection and the volumizing hair product, and the hair is almost dry, it’s time to use the blow dryer. A diffuser will help to lift the roots and add volume to flat fine hair.

More fine hair tips:

10) It will help if you dry the hair upside down.

11) Blow-dry your hair by using gently your fingertips. If you brush it you’ll lose the volume.

12) Don’t use the hair-dryer on wet hair.


check icon  Brush when it’s necessary

combIf your hair roots get oily super fast then try to cut back on brushing. Brushing stimulates the natural oils from the scalp and you definitely don’t want that.

More fine hair tips:

13) If you must brush your hair during the day, choose a wide-tooth comb.

14) Choose round brushes that are a combination of boar and nylon bristles.

15) Have you used hot air brushes? From my own experience I can say it gives volume, although my hair is coarse and not fine. However, I’ve heard from others with fine hair that it helps. I don’t use it often, because the heat is too close to my scalp and I feel I’m damaging my roots. If the hot air brush doesn’t have temperature adjustment button then applying very hot air to your roots could make it flat, limp and greasy.

    Great tips! I have pretty thin hair, mainly because I dye it so often, so these come in handy.

    I was born to have uncontrollably thick hair but I still use some of these tips like I live for dry shampoo and don’t brush it very often to keep the volume. Great tips for those with thinner hair 🙂

    Great tips! I never even thought about using a dry towel to speed up the drying process. Going to have to give that a try. I am always looking for a good way to add some volume.
