My fine hair comes from my Dad. My freckles and fair skin are from his side too, so it's all good<3 I'm sharing 8 tips that I use to help keep my fine hair looking fabulous (including a sponsored item, Biotin-100% Vegetarian Capsules, which are free of gluten, wheat, dairy with zero fillers by Eu Natural.) These products/tips can help add volume, lessen split ends, breakage and fall out. I hope you try them and have fabulous results too!
8 Tips to make fine hair fabulous
1: Biotin supplements- I'm sponsoring two products for Eu Natural. It couldn't be better timing! Biotin, a water soluble B-vitamin, can help with brittle nails, hair loss, eyebrow, or lash loss, which can be biotin deficiency. Other signs include conjunctivitis, dermatitis, lethargy, depression, tingling or numb extremities and hallucination. I've been seeing commercials on television for this vitamin supplement. I just received Biotin 5000 MCG and Vibrance pure healthy hair formula multi vitamins both are 100% Vegetarian Capsules, Free of Gluten, Wheat, Dairy with Zero Fillers.
I'm super excited to try them both!
2: Gluten & Thyroid- I was diagnosed gluten intolerant in 2004. After I went gluten free, my hair volume improved tremendously, along with other health issues. Auto-immune issues and low thyroid can effect hair growth, so have your Dr. check these to make sure your healthy:)
3: Hair color- hair color can add volume to your hair. Semi-permanent hair color adds the most volume. I read that gray hair is thinner and more fragile than our naturally colored hair.
4: Highlights-Add dimension and visual volume. Brunettes beware of achieving the platinum blonde highlight. I've found bringing my highlights up to platinum damages my hair. I get breakage and split ends. If I do go for the lightest blonde, I make sure to ask my stylist for just a few light foils! Also, the more expensive salon highlight products, seem to be able to achieve the blonde highlight, but without the damage! Follow my "beauty how to" board on Pinterest.
5: Ceramic coated flat iron and round brush- I'm a short-do girl, and a mini flat iron helps me achieve the smooth lift & style I like. You don't have to spend a fortune, but you do need to buy a flat iron with ceramic coated plates! You also need a ceramic coated round hair brush to blow dry your hair with! The difference is night and day!
6: Hair Gel- My hair is so fine, that styling products are almost all too heavy! However, I love Matrix: total results, heat resistant, blowout tamer works well. Apply to damp hair and then blow dry, for shine, control, heat protection, and great styling without being too heavy.
7: Hair Serum- Pantene AgeDefy advanced Thickening Treatment. I read about this one in a beauty magazine while I was waiting for an appointment. Supposedly the formula, containing caffeine, B3, and panthenol helps your hair become less brittle and more manageable. The directions state it takes time to achieve results. I bought some at my local market and gave it a whirl! Amazingly, after only a week I noticed less fall out and more volume!!!
8: Wheat protein, Epsom Salt mixed with Conditioner & Gentle Shampoo & Conditioner-
Wheat protein is excellent for volume!!! Unfortunately, I'm allergic to wheat, so I don't use products containing wheat.
Gentle Shampoo & Conditioner-My hair stylist says using a variety of shampoos is healthy for your hair. And, certain shampoos and waters can wash away hair color rather quickly. There are many color extend formulas. I switch up my shampoos/conditioners.
Epsom Salt mixed with conditioner is supposed to be an excellent volumeizer for your hair. Check out this epsom salt tip on the Dr. Oz show. I bought some at the market but haven't tried this yet!
Do you have any fine hair tips?
