You want your hair to look your best, but if you have silky or baby soft fine, straight hair, you’ll need to pamper it, especially when your hair has too much moisture, because the moisture will cause it to lay limp and flat. If your hair is thin or thinning (which is surprisingly common in women), you’ll probably want a hair care product that will add volume to make your hair look fuller. While a decade ago, products that claimed to help you grow more hair were the rage (most of them no longer exist because they didn’t work), today’s products focus on ways to thicken individual strands of hair by using protein enhancers.
The key to making your fine, thin or thinning hair look fuller is to wash and condition your hair with a lightweight hair thickening shampoo and conditioner and to style your hair with volumizing, thickening, bodifying and texturizing styling products.
