Women with fine hair usu­ally have good thick­ness at the root but will lack vol­ume as the hairs are eas­ily weighed down. Den­sity-en­hanc­ing sham­poos such as Shi­seido Sub­lime, light­weight con­di­tion­ers and thick­en­ing sprays that pro­tect against heat dam­age, such Windle & Moodie For­ti­fy­ing Spray, all help hair to ap­pear fuller, and leave-in prod­ucts such as Fine Hair Flu­ide by La Bios­the­tique add much-needed uv pro­tec­tion. But it’s dry sham­poos that are a fine-haired girl’s best friend.

“Most com­mer­cial hair prod­ucts con­tain harsh chem­i­cals that strip your hair of nat­u­ral oils,” says Nina Zilka, co-founder of Alder New York. Avoid over-wash­ing by us­ing a nat­u­ral dry sham­poo be­tween tra­di­tional washes. Alder New York Nat­u­ral Hair Pow­der lifts from the roots and con­tains horse­tail pow­der, which pro­vides body and strength for fine-haired fil­lies. It’s also a great method for pro­long­ing hair colour.

As styles will not hold well, Hong Kong-based stylist Vi­vian Ng rec­om­mends lock­ing your look with a su­per-strong spray such as L’oréal Paris El­nett Ex­tra Strength Hold. Ac­cord­ing to La Bios­the­tique’s Marek Wan, we should be on the watch for wheat pep­tides and fatty acids that help strengthen ceramide bonds and re­struc­ture the hair shaft.
