How to know if you have fine hair? The fastest and easiest way to know if you have fine hair is to take a strand of hair, hold it between your thumb and index finger, and feel the diameter of it. If you can't feel it, your hair is fine. If you can feel it, your hair is medium coarse. If you can feel a thick strand, it is coarse.
Caring for fine hair is a challenge. Too many bad hair days will come with using too many different products and not the right products. With the right products, you only need: a good shampoo, conditioner, and leave in. Using four or five different products can affect your hair in the worse way; if you are not familiar with the ingredients listed. Our products are natural and as you should know, anything natural is always good and does no harm.
Let us help you get that healthy hair you desire!
Why is fine hair so hard to maintain?
There are many reasons why fine hair is so hard to maintain but the main reason is its diameter. Your hair may seem coarse because it's thick, but that thickness is from density. Density means you have a lot of hairs per square inch, which makes it seem coarse. Diameter is what should be taken into account when purchasing hair products.
If the diameter of your hair is small, your hair is more prone to breakage and damage easily. Therefore, you have to be really careful in the products you use. Sulfates and harsh chemical products can be the worse on any type of hair, but more especially fine hair. Fine hair will feel like straw easily when it gets dry. Sulfates dry the hair by stripping it of its natural oils.
Fine hair does not hold curls easily and too much heat will damage the cuticle, which locks in natural oils and moisture. The cuticle layer is also a protective layer of each hair strand. Therefore, it is important to apply a protective coating over your hair before using any heat. Our Leave In Lotion is designed as a protective coating for heat styling.
It is easy to over-condition fine hair and it is important to understand why. Too much moisture will make fine hair limp and weighed down so it is important to not deep condition on a regular.
