Fine hair: we show the best products and cuts for more volume
When you have fine hair, it's difficult to give the volume that will last longer, and most of the time it also gets greasy quickly. Those are the two downsides to this type of hair, which quickly takes on a flat, sleek look and makes it difficult for a hairstyle to last an entire day (and anyone who's ever tried to get curls into fine hair knows this better than anyone other).
But even if you can't change the texture of your hair, there are certain tricks from experts to make it look fuller when styling. Likewise, there are certain products that help add volume to both washing and styling, but there are also mistakes that can be associated with improper grooming or haircut.
The hair specialists at Espacio Q have given us all their tips and tricks for fine hair:
By the time you're reading this, you probably already know that you have fine hair, but in case you still have doubts, the experts at Espacio Q say: "Fine hair is characterized by hair that doesn't have a lot of volume Fall flat. It gets greasy very quickly, especially on the base and forehead. "
Yes and no. That means, as the experts from the Madrid Salon emphasize: "Yes, we can give fine hair more volume, but we have to be aware that it is a temporary effect, that is, as soon as we wash the hair, this effect will disappear and it will return to its original shape. " At least it will make it easier for us to style our hair occasionally, and the experts confirm that "there are certain products for this hair type that help to create more volume".
The easiest way is to use a styling spray to add volume and body to the hair, but the experts at Espacio Q point out that this should be a specific product for fine hair. One trick they recommend is the use of dry shampoo, "for example the 'Shampure' line from Aveda, which in addition to dry cleaning gives the hair volume and texture and strengthens the hair roots.
"It is hair that becomes slightly greasy, so it has to be washed more regularly, sometimes almost every day, but with special products," confirm the specialists. Does that mean you should wash your hair every day? "It's best to take turns. Wash one day and then use dry shampoo the next day, because if you wash it every day, the fine hair soon feels as if it becomes greasy faster and needs to be washed constantly. The use of dry shampoo allows us to wash only every two days, "they explain, and as mentioned earlier, it gives us the perfect texture to make the most of the second day of hair.
In addition to the products that should be used for washing and care, i.e. conditioner and a mask once or twice a week, the experts emphasize the importance of using products that are specially formulated for fine hair, and above all," that doesn't weigh down - or better yet, those that help us thicken it easily. In fact, they report that one of the most common mistakes is "using products that are too heavy so that we never get what we want." Preserving volume ". One of these care lines that does not weigh down the hair is the" Pure Abundance "series from Aveda, which" gives volume and body in a light way, based on natural enhancers".
The Espacio-Q team points out that not only is it about adding volume to fine hair but getting the haircut right is also crucial. "Haircuts that are too short always give the impression that our hair has less volume and even less fullness than usual. Layered cuts are ideal for fine hair because they give us the feeling of more volume, more fullness." But also here you have to pay attention to the right cut because the steps "give us volume at the roots, but still the rest of the hairstyle often looks bad, especially at the tips," they warn. So when we go to the barber, her recommendation is to ask for a "tiered cut but with movement in the tips".
Texturing your hair with a styling spray or dry shampoo is a great way to make any look you want to create last longer. But if you still find that your curls do not last long, there is this trick that many salons use, and it can be easily achieved with a certain blow-dryer technique: Divide the damp hair into small strands and twist them around themselves, Blow-dry until the strand is dry. When you let go of it, it will have a very natural wave (and with a finishing spray it will last even longer).
