Fine hair – it’s soft and lovely to touch but there can be drawbacks. I’ve got healthy hair but it’s super fine which makes it hard to look thick and full if you know what I mean. I’ve recently gotten tape-in extensions as a filler method which I love. I also have naturally wavy hair which helps but if you are looking for products that make hair thicker (and look thicker) then you have come to the right place. Finding the best hair products for fine hair isn’t easy you know as a lot of them can weigh the hair down or worse, make it look greasy. I’ve put together a post of some of the best products to make your hair look thicker without too much effort!
If your hair lacks volume, then a dry texture spray is a godsend. First of all, it’s a dry texturizing spray which means it is not going to weigh down fine hair. The Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray is a good texturizing spray for fine hair because it’s lightweight and it DOES NOT leave hair greasy. It is infused with Argan Oil but it’s so light that you can’t even feel it. You can use it to create volume in the form of beach waves or spruce up next-day hair. Perfecto.
Again I hate sticky hair products and I steered clear of hairsprays until I stumbled upon the Paul Mitchell Invisible Wear Undone Texture Hairspray. It’s exactly as it says on the tin – which is giving your hair that invisible hold and texture with a bit of body thrown in for good measure! It’s got an ingredient called Velvet Flower which is humidity-resistant so it holds even in humidity. The perfect product for a bedhead look.
I’m a huge fan of the Grow Gorgeous range in general and my favourite product is the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum. My hair is fine and on the thin side so I need all the help I can get. I recently had tape hair extensions put in and while tape-in extensions do not damage the hair, it’s important to strengthen the hair and take care with your hair while the tapes are in.
I’ve been using the Hair Growth Serum on my scalp (the tapes do not touch the scalp directly) to increase hair density, growth and thickness. In other words, your hair looks and feels thicker making it easier to texturise. You can also see visible results in four weeks with this product! Key ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, Bio-Active Pea Sprout Complex, Bio-Active Complex of Chinese Skullcap, Soy Sprout and Wheat Sprout as well as Clover Flower Extract. I also love that this is free of parabens, silicones and sulphates. Simply apply to wet or dry hair and lightly massage in every day.
If you want to plump your hair just like you plump up your skin with moisturisers then the John Masters Organics Hair Milk is the ONE. It’s a lightweight leave-in treatment that smells divine with rose water and apricot kernel oil. What it does is let texturise your hair naturally – I like to spray it on next-day unwashed hair to spruce it up a bit and to add some definition. The spray is also an anti-pollution hair product so it’s great for urban living too.
I feel the same way about heat protection for the hair as I do about sunscreen for the body. Always wear it! Never blow dry your hair or use heat styling products without heat protection spray. I love the Kerastraight Moisture Mist because it’s also a detangling mist too so not only does it heat protect, it also helps to untangle hair in the process for less damage! And less tangly hair means less hair loss, meaning thicker hair overall. Also if you plan to try to thicken up the look of your hair using styling tools then definitely use a heat protection spray!
