I hate fine hair - My hair will not curl

I dont really do anything with my fine hair because those of you who have fine hair know that your hair does not want to do what you want it to. I either straighten it then poof it up with some hair spray. Or i get my hair damp and rub some gel in it and then do what hair style i want.

If you have fine hair then you know that owning a curling iron is a waste of time. My hair will not curl so to get some kind of curl, I just leave the gel in it and throw my head upside down and shake it for a few minutes. That way you get a new hairstyle but you get some curl.

I also have very fine baby hair. There isn't a thing I can do with it. Winter time is even worse, curling iron help's very little, doesn't last.
I to agree I hate my baby fine hair,
it is much easier to care for it short. My hair is just below my ears, just enough to put up, no matter what is still falls down.

Go with what works for your hair. If your hairdresser can't make suggestion for your hair type then its time to change your salon! Have you tried hair powders or dry shampoo? They can help to lift root and add better management to hair. Get a shaggy haircut (if you like the style) with layers. Many have found this type of haircut suitable for their fine hair.

I cannot stand my fine hair

I know about all the cuts that you can try to make your hair look thick, or w/some kind of body. But I detest the styles, because I still have to fight w/my hair to get that kind of style. My thin hair will not work w/anything. It does not matter how much gel, foam, etc. I put in my hair. I've asked for perms at my beauty salon and I get the explanation that permed hair is really not in, the fine straight hair LOOK is in. So I walk out of the beauty salon disappointed, and w/a style that does not work for me, or the style requires ALOT of time on my end to make it work. i am not an actress where I can hire someone to tod my hair every morning. So if the fine hair look looks good on some actresses...well good luck.

I definitely know where you are coming from. I have baby fine thin hair myself. What you can do is get a great layered cut. I have mine cut and layered as a shaggy bob. This actually works great. I got it cut so I can wear it forward or back off my face or simply straight.

As far as style products, use mousse to volumizes the hair. Gel tends to weigh the hair down. Also use a hair dryer. After I wash and condition, I use my mousse, a leave in conditioning spray (VO5 spray conditioner) on the ends so they do not get dry from the heat of the dryer. Then I spray only my roots with my hair spray when my hair is still wet. This gives added volume and hold while drying. When I am done, I use a hair pick and spray it with some hairspray and push it under my hair on the sides in an upward motion -- again extra volume.

Finish with a light all over mist hair spray. Sounds like a lot of work but it takes only few minutes. The result; my hair looks full, thick and yes beautiful.
As you know that is hard with fine hair. Give this a try and see how this works for you.
