The Best Products For Fine Hair

Until recently, I’d never loved my hair for more than 10 minutes. Seriously, my hair has always been the mane of my existence. (Is that funny to anyone else, or just me?) But then I discovered the best products for fine hair. Phew. 

I have very fine hair, but quite a bit of it. It’s not curly. It’s not straight. It’s just there. I am not one those “Oh, I just put a little product in, let it air dry and I’m good to go.” Hell no. My hair makes me work for lovely locks.

But for real. Hair isn’t a joking matter. A good hair day can make you feel like you can conquer the world. (And you can.) A bad hair day? Ugh. Come and get me from underneath my down comforter when it’s over.

I owe every good hair day I have to my uber talented colorist, Lindsey, and stylist, Lexi, at Salon Buzz in Chicago. Shout OUT, because those two are my dream team.

But when I’m on my own at home, these are the best products for fine hair. (Or, as I like to call them, the reason I can enter into society.) 

Thanks for stopping by!


PS: I’m still looking for the perfect shampoo for fine hair. If you’ve got one you love, send it my way!

kerastase-masque (800x535)

Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense ($30)

This mask is for my hair what yoga is for my body (total beauty blogger SAT question). I highlight, over-process, and over-style my hair almost on daily basis. This mask helps my poor hair recover from all of that, and makes it look shiny and new.

Wet Brush 

This is an absolute essential if you have fine hair that tends to break when you try to comb it right out of the shower. Because, #momlife.

bumble (800x800)

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray

Back to that whole ‘fine hair’ thing. I need this stuff. Not a lot, and just sprayed onto my roots, but it makes my flat hair come to life.

kerastase ciment (600x772)

Kerastase Ciment Thermique

This helps protect my hair from all of the bad things I do to it. And it smells amazing.

rusk speeed (500x500)

Rusk Speed Freak Ceramic Blow Dryer 

Ok, this should be first on the list because I believe it is THE most important tool for getting lovely locks. Ladies, it’s time to step away from cheap hair dryers because a good one will make all the difference.

Hot Tools Curling Iron

This little guy is a dream. In order to have good curls, you need a good curling iron. This one does the job perfectly and doesn’t break the bank. I get asked a lot how I curl my hair (maybe one day I’ll do a tutorial if I ever learn technology). Short answer: randomly curl sections of your hair (don’t follow a pattern) and don’t curl all the way to the ends. No ringlets allowed.

shu (800x800)

Shu Uemura Color Lustre Cool Blonde 

I’m on a constant search for anything to make my hair keep its cool, ashy tone. Lindsey has perfected it over the years, and this little baby helps me keep the golden tones at bay. Blondes, if you don’t have this yet, you need it.
