Fine hair refers to the actual hair strand itself, the diameter of each strand, not to be confused with thin hair. Thin hair means you do not have as many hairs or there is more space between each hair follicle. Fine hair is often naturally silky and smooth and will hold a curl easily. Fine hair needs to be washed more often to remove and prevent build up and prevent it from looking oily, which fine hair is often more susceptible to. Fine hair can get weighed down easily and look flat and lifeless. To avoid this, wash every day to every other day with a volumizing or gentle clarifying shampoo. When it comes to conditioning, focus on the ends while avoiding the roots and scalp. Be extra gentle with the hair strands and try to avoid brushing your hair when it is wet to minimize breakage. Air dry whenever possible to prevent heat damage.
