I believe the most important element when it comes to making thin hair look thick and giving it some volume and staying power is the products. In this ongoing series about managing thin hair, we have talked about hairstyles and accessories, but thin hair has different needs so it is important that the products used are formulated exclusively for thin hair.
- Shampoos should clean without stripping moisture and conditioners should soften and detangle without causing build-up.
- The products should be light weight and promise to increase volume and texture.
- Be sure to lift at the scalp to created thickness. Always use a protectant while using heated appliances and decrease the heat setting so as not to fry your fragile hair strands.
