Fine hair, by definition, is hair in which the individual strands are extremely thin; fine hair may lack volume and body, and appear limp, lifeless, and flat. Fine hair also tends to separate into lank strands, which can make you appear disheveled and poorly groomed, no matter how recently you brushed or combed your hair. To a certain extent, the thickness of your hair is genetically predetermined. But if you didn’t win the thick-hair lottery, there are things you can to do nourish your hair and promote healthy growth, as well as tricks you can employ to add volume and make your fine, limp tresses appear thicker.



Step 1

Get a good, professional haircut from a stylist experienced with fine hair. Avoid layered looks; a cut in which all the hair is the same length is a good choice. Although an appropriate haircut won’t actually physically thicken your hair, it will give it a neater, more shapely appearance.

Step 2

See your stylist for a trim every six weeks. A consistent regimen of professional trims can reduce the split ends and eventual breakage that causes thin hair to become even thinner.

Step 3

Eat wholesome foods that promote hair growth. Eat generous amounts of salmon, which is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids that are essential to a healthy scalp and hair growth. Take large helpings of spinach and dark greens, which contribute vitamins A and C. According to the Good Housekeeping website, these vitamins are needed to produce sebum, the natural oil that gives your hair its shine. Eggs–packed with biotin and vitamin B-12, and beans, which provide protein, iron, biotin and zinc–should also be on the menu, as well as Brazil nuts, which contain selenium, a vital mineral for scalp health.


Step 1

Combine 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of honey, and one ounce of warm water in a small cup or bowl. Mix well. Aloe vera gel is rich in many nutrients that are beneficial for your hair. According to the Herb Wisdom website, aloe vera contains zinc, the antioxidant vitamins A,E and C, amino acids, and essential fatty acids.

Step 2

Apply the mixture to dry hair by pouring it from the cup into your palm and then massaging it through your hair, working over a sink in case of drips and spills. Cover your hair with the mixture from the roots to the ends, pulling strands down through your fingers to coat the tips.

Step 3Leave the treatment on for 30 minutes, then shampoo it out with a good-quality, mild shampoo specially formulated for fine hair. Condition your hair as usual with a conditioner for fine, limp hair.

Step 4

Repeat the treatment every three days for best results.


Step 1

Blow dry your hair for maximum lift by bending over so your head is hanging down and then drying hair from the underside. Hold the dryer with one hand, and finger style with the other by gently lifting hair outwards from your scalp with your fingers spread wide. This technique avoids the use of a brush on wet hair, which can stress fine hair. Because fine hair tends to be fragile and is easily damaged by heat and styling tools, you should use a low heat setting. It is best not to use this technique every day, as styling tools can damage fine hair.

Step 2

When your hair is half dried, add a small amount of styling mousse to the roots and underside of your hair to help lift it outward from your head. Don’t use more than a dime-sized spot of the mousse. According to the Hair Boutique website, the over-application of styling products can weigh your hair down, making it appear flatter and limper.

Step 3

Flip your head up when your hair is completely dry and fluff your hair into place, again using your fingers at the roots and undersides to lift outward. You should see a s significant increase in volume.
