Fragile in nature and often limp and lifeless, is your fine hair making your life difficult? Rest assured, your locks are not a lost cause! You simply need to take a few measures to prevent your hair from causing you problems.
Regarding your haircut, opt for a short style. A long bob, chin-length hair or a boyish pixie style are the dream haircuts to minimise how fine your hair looks. The same goes for men: the shorter the haircut the better! Whatever your hair's length, layers are an excellent option for creating more volume, providing they are put in carefully so as to not thin out the hair too much. Otherwise, this might make your hair more brittle. Furthermore, do not deprive yourself of a fringe - if you choose the right one it can work wonders and make your locks look thicker.
As for products, choose them wisely by opting for targeted formulations which can boost volume from the very first wash! Not forgetting a lightweight mask which will nourish your hair without weighing it down. Moreover, do not overlook the importance of a colouring treatment! An array of shades can add depth to the cut for hair that looks full of body. Finally, go for hairstyles which are perfectly suited to your hair type: a wavy blow-dried style which gives you bigger hair than a classic blow-dry; a half-ponytail with a quiff, rather than a slicked-back look; or curls rather then straightened locks... Consider cheating with styling products which coat and thicken the hair fibre. They give your locks extra hold. Furthermore, dare to try out accessories such as foam donuts which can create a hairstyle full of volume in the blink of an eye. Clever!
