What combination of Fine hair do I have?

Finding a hair care routine that works for you is not only important for the health of your hair but for an overall ease into your daily routine. This blog will help bring clarity and will help you make adjustments, catering to what your hair needs are.

Typical fine hair concerns: Fine hair tends to get greasy faster. Hair fall is more prevalent, hair is harder to style due to lack of volume and flatness. The ends tend to be dry and visibly damaged. With the right products you can add more volume and promote more hair growth. Finding the right hair promoting product is key as it will take away the hair concern of less volume. 

To determine if you have fine hair, pull out a hair strand and compare it to a sewing thread. If your hair is as wide as the thread, you have thick hair. If your hair is thinner than the thread, you have fine hair. Fine hair can be fragile and prone to breakage, due to the small diameter of each strand.  

To find out the porosity of your hair you can take a strand of hair and put it in a clear glass filled with water. If it sinks to the bottom your hair is hydrated. If it floats it is dehydrated and if it's floating in the middle it's a happy medium. Although, you can still have a combination of fine and course strands, if you have more fine strands it will generally more hydrated than thicker hair is.

Below are a couple styling tips:

Using Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray, spray in sections; the front section, everywhere around where you part your hair and crown area.  

Stimulate growth with the strands you already have using Kerastase's Genesis Collection, which prevents hair fall. Using the Thermo Spray from this collection is incredibly beneficial as it is a great heat protectant that will help reduce breakage from heat styling while helping with volume as well.
