How to Maintain Fine, Limp Hair

Maintaining a fine, limp hair can be a daunting task and the easy fixes common with curly or wavy

hair just won’t work on your volume-less tresses. Getting a classic bounce will take a careful series of

steps and precautions of what not to do. Here are some tips about how to maintain your straight,

fine hair with minimal damage or loss.

DO wash your hair often.

The fine hair usually gets oily and sticks to the head, screaming for a wash. Feel free to wash it

frequently provided you don’t go overboard. By contrast curlier, thicker hair tends to be drier and

therefore looks better with fewer washes, benefiting from the accumulation of natural oils.

DO NOT apply conditioner on your roots

Conditioner is usually applied to improve the hair texture, smoothing the hair cuticles to make the

strands soft and glossy. But some ingredients in conditioners, including silicon and oils, can weigh

down your hair. That’s the last experience you want to give your flat hair, particularly the roots. So

apply the conditioner sparingly to the tips of your hair, and no further than the nape of your neck.

DO NOT sleep on wet hair

Thin, fine hair won’t bounce back to form like thicker hair. Actually, it doesn’t bounce back at all.

Sleeping on wet hair will leave your head with strange cowlicks and kinks the next morning,

something you will need a straightening iron to smooth out, or to wash it again which is totally


DO blow dry your hair upside down

Flipping your head down is the best way you can get to the roots of your fine hair and really give it

the required extra lift. You may add a little volumising mousse so as to damp your hair for that extra


DO NOT use plastic combs on dry hair

Static hair occurs when negatively charged electrons fly off your hair, making the strands positively

charged, causing them to resist one another. Plastic combs encourage the greatest level of static

whereas metal combs being good conductors, don’t.

Now that you know the best ways to maintain your fine, limp hair, here are some of the best hair

styles we recommend at M&M Hair Academy, Ealing hair salon, that you can try out.

Fringe Effect

A super strong fringe can actually transform thin strands to appear thicker. This fringe should be cut

bluntly just above the eyes to create an incredibly dramatic result.

Layered Bob

This sharp layered bob looks magical if you want the look of thicker looking hair. Here, the hair is cut

to the level of the chin and tapered to the back so that it hugs the neck. You may also experiment

with a side sweeping fringe to help frame your face and bring it bang up to date.

Pixie Hairstyle

A short pixie haircut is a great option if you have thin hair. Creating volume and lift is simpler when

strands are shorter.

Fine hair can be troublesome at times- it’s like you and your hair are at war. This is especially true

when you encounter harsh weather, especially wind or humidity, when your carefully styled look just

falls apart. However with the right cut, care and styling techniques, you can build volume into your

fine hair and maintain a persistently coiffed look.
