At your local Aveda Hair Salon in Irvine, we’ve encountered a lot of myths about hair care over the years. The one misconception that we all agree couldn’t be further from the truth is this; it’s impossible for fine hair to have volume & texture. Check out some of our favorite quick tips for our fine hair friends below and never have a bad hair day again.
Lift Your Roots
The basis of every full bodied hairstyle starts at the roots. By working a lightweight root lifter or a dry shampoo into the scalp, you’ll create instant volume while minimizing oils that accumulate throughout the day and weigh fine hair down. Plus, once you style your hair the shape and texture will remain in place far longer.
The Right Way to Wash Fine Hair
Although fine hair typically shows grease more quickly than coarse hair, there are a few easy changes you can make to your washing routine to keep hair looking full bodied and clean. Keep in mind that where you wash your hair can be just as important as how often you wash it. Shampoo the top of your head along the crown and avoid the base near your neck where hair is cleaner and oils don’t show. Avoid conditioning your roots and instead focus on your ends to avoid flat hair once dried. If your goal is to add volume to your hairstyle, minimize the amount of conditioner you use all together.
Make Your Cut Do the Heavy Lifting
Fine hair is very susceptible to the way that it’s cut, so making sure that you have a style that suits your hair type is key. While a good cut can do wonders for fine hair, it also means that mistakes are unforgiving. For women’s haircuts, we recommend soft, blended layers that don’t weigh down your style overall. Having your stylist cut your hair once it’s washed and dried can also ensure the style is right when you leave the salon.
