If you have thin, fine hair, shorter cuts are probably a better styling choice for you. But what’s the best way to style short hair that is fine, thin (or thinning?) Here are a few tips to help you find the best way to style your hair and look your best.

Start with the Right Cut

If you have fine hair, adding strategic layers may reduce weight at the end, giving hair more lift at the roots and providing the appearance of more volume. A short bob can be layered lightly to frame around your face. If you have delicate features, a layered pixie cut may work well for you. Just be careful not to go too short if your hair is thinning – you’ll want to leave enough hair to cover thinning spots.

Work with Texture

Flat ironing hair can make hair appear thinner – steer clear of flat ironing if your hair is thin. If your hair has curl or wave, scrunching gently as you dry it with a diffuser attachment can really add volume and make hair appear thicker and fuller. Whether your hair is straight or curly, drying your hair upside down at the roots can give your hair more lift and a volume boost.

Cleansing and Conditioning

Using the wrong products to clean and condition can really weigh your hair down and make it look limp and weak. It’s important to remove oils from the scalp to allow for more movement. Heavy conditioners can also weigh hair down and make it look thin and flat. Keranique’s Clean and Condition set can provide lift at the roots and weightless conditioning that can give hair body and make it look healthier.

Styling Products

The wrong styling products can also weigh hair down, making your short, thin hair look limp and lifeless. Choose products that are lightweight and can provide lift at the roots. Applying mousse at the roots can really add volume and bounce to your short style. A volumizing mousse like Keranique’s Thickening and Texturizing Mousse can add body without stiffness, protecting hair from styling damage.

Here’s how to apply the Thickening and Texturing Mousse:

    It’s too bad you have to use a model with thick, long hair. Usually, people with thinning hair have shorter hair. Please make the people who really need this feel like it’s worth watching!

    How can mousse, or whatever, be effective without blow drying? I prefer to air dry my hair, so using mousse on dry hair and drying is out of the question.

      Hi Linda,
      Thank you for your question. Keranique Thickening & Texturizing Mousse should be applied on towel dried/damp hair. Massage through hair from roots to ends and into your scalp and then style as you desire. You do not have to use a blowdryer, however, if you were to use a blow-dryer or curling iron, Keranique Mousse helps to protect your strands from the heat.
      Thank you

    I’ve been using product since early March and noticed my processed (colored hair) has taken on a brassy color. Does Keranique products affect colored hair?

    • Keranique Hair says:

      Hi Ellen, Although Keranique is gentle enough for chemically or color-treated hair, we recommend skipping Keranique the day before, the day of, and the day after you color-treat your hair. In addition, we offer a shampoo and conditioning Color Boosting formula designed to reduce color loss and protect from fading while nourishing the scalp and follicle, leaving your hair stronger and more vibrant. I have sent a contact request to our Customer Relations Liaison to better assist you.
