Limp. Pathetic. Lifeless. Are these words you’re saying to your hair in the mirror every morning? Some of us are born with ultra-fine hair, and there’s nothing we can do about it . . . or is there? Our stylists here at Salon 755 are offering up these three tips to help you put your fine, flat hair in its place!

1. Thickening Shampoos

If you want fuller hair, try to shampoo every other day. Shampooing every other day helps keep your scalp and hair healthier. It might be tempting to wash your hair when it gets oily, but resist the urge and you’ll thank us. If you must use a conditioner, go for one which is formulated to fortify your scalp and hair and promotes growth of new hair. For shampoos, we recommend the Redken Beach Envy Volume Texturizing Shampoo! It gently cleanses, and gives you a texture boost which can help create loose, beachy waves with amazing body.

2. Volumizing Products

One of the keys to putting your fine hair in its place is to volumize! Recently volumizing powders which are applied by shaking them onto the roots have been coming into style. If you use a powder, it’s best to add a mouse to your hair beforehand to give even more volume. Mouse also works on its own if you’re not a powder person. We recommend the Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Foam mousse. This root volumizing spray boosts your roots, making your hair full and bold. It has a long-lasting natural feel and texture for all-over volume and gutsy styling. Another option is the Redken High Rise Volume Duo Volumizer! This is a two-in-one – a volumizing hair cream combined with a high-lift gel – which creates big, voluminous style.

3. The Right Cut

Make sure you’ve got the right cut for you. Is your current stylist missing the mark? If fine, flat hair isn’t properly shaped it easily falls flat or shows uneven lines. The right cut for flat, fine hair may vary a bit depending on your face type, but generally long layers add movement and volume to this hair type. Shorter cuts can also work, as the hair isn’t weighed down. To learn what our stylists can do for you, contact us at 651-501-7456! We’d be glad to help.
