TIPS FOR STYLING THIN HAIR
Got thin, fine hair? The struggle is real. While this hair type may seem easy to style, with it’s quick drying time and low maintenance care regime, it can be difficult to maintain all-day style while achieving natural volume.
Voluminous hair and perfect curls may seem like a pipe dream if you’ve got thin hair, but fear not: we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to fake it ‘til you make it!
1. Review your washing regime.
Getting that voluminous look you’re dreaming of starts in the shower. The most important step to get right is your washing regime! Some products can weigh your hair down.
Add some volume by looking for a weightless shampoo and conditioner that are specifically formulated for fine hair.
2. Never apply conditioner to your scalp!
Any time you wet your hair, you should use conditioner. Your hair needs nourishment, and conditioner is great for keeping your hair moisturised, healthy and happy.
But you should only be applying conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends. If you apply conditioner too close to your roots, this may also be contributing to your hair looking limp, so be sure to avoid slathering the stuff on your roots!
3. Hair extensions are a girl’s best friend.
If long, thick hair is your ultimate goal, why not try hair extensions? Whether you choose clip-ins, tape, or beaded extensions, they’re the key to adding instant length, body and volume to bring your hair to life.
We suggest JUVABUN Messy Bun™ for Quick & Thick Hairstyle!
The magic about The Juvabun Messy Bun, besides the fact that in less than 60 seconds your hair will look thick with tons of volume, is that it looks and feels so natural and effortless.
4. Use a clarifying shampoo.
A clarifying shampoo is to your hair, what an exfoliator is to your skin. Used once a week, a clarifying shampoo will rid your hair of impurities and product buildup, both which add weight to your hair and leave it looking limp and lifeless.
5. Dry shampoo is your friend.
Thin hair can often appear greasier than thicker hair, as oil from your scalp travels down fine hair follicles easier. Dry shampoo will not only absorb excess oil, bringing your hair back to life, the powders and starch in it will also bring texture and volume to your locks! Instead of spraying and then brushing the dry shampoo through your hair, simply leave it be. The longer you leave it there, the more the powder and starch will build on each other and bring bounce to your hair.
6. Highlights add lasting volume
Highlights are a great way to add texture and volume to fine hair, without having to use any products.
Highlights rough up the cuticle, making limp, flat hair hold more buoyant styles for longer.
However, exercise caution, as highlights can weaken hair if not given the extra TLC they require. To avoid this, be sure not to overdo it - so no going in for touchups every few weeks!
Alternatively, if you’re nervous about damaging your hair, you can ask your stylist to use henna, a plant-based hair colour that can make your hair feel fuller, healthier, and shiner without the added damage of highlights.
7. Don’t be scared of mousses!
Once upon a time, mousses would dry out hair and freeze it into a hardened perm, but today, mousse formulas are hydrating and far more elegant all round. Using a volumising foam can give your limp locks some much-needed oomph! Simply work a dollop of mousse into slightly damp hair, scrunching from the ends of your hair up to the top.
Be sparing with the mousse, though - applying too much will only weigh your hair down!
8. Blow dry your hair upside down!
When you’re drying your hair, flip your head upside down and blow dry that way, raking your fingers through your luscious locks as you go.
This will rough up the cuticle of your hair, giving it more volume. When your hair is only slightly damp, flip it back over and use a round brush to smooth it out while you dry the rest of your hair.
Be careful not to pull too hard with the brush, though, otherwise you’ll just flatten everything out! If you want to go a step further, try using a volumising, heat-activated blow-out spray when you dry your hair. These sprays are specifically formulated to give thin, fine hair body from the roots to tips.
9. Invest in thickening sprays!
There are root-lifting sprays that work to boost your roots and thicken hair strands to give you volume that lasts and feels natural. Invest in some so that you can get the bouncy, naturally voluminous hair that you’ve been dreaming of.
10. Rollers give your hair body
Bring your lifeless locks back to life by sectioning off your hair at the crown and rolling it up in curling rollers. Use your blow-dryer on a cool setting to fix the style in place, and then spray all over with a lightweight, volumising hairspray. Be sure to get the roots to ensure maximum bounce! If your hair starts to fall limp during the day, just flip it over and massage your scalp - teasing the roots like this will fluff your hair right back up!
11. Don’t over-brush!
Thin, fine hair can be easily damaged. Avoid breaking your hair strands by brushing only as and when you need to. Too much brushing can not only break your hair, but it can flatten out your hairstyle and generate more scalp oil, making fine hair appear limp and greasy.
Our JuvaBun Detangling brush is perfect for brushing sensitive hair, as it gently teases out knots without pulling on the roots too much.

What women are saying about us...
“I have really thin hair so it a little bit of engineering with small hair combs to work. It looks beautiful and matches my hair pretty well where it’s highlighted. Lots of compliments and I’ve never felt more positive about my hair in years….👍🏻 ” — Susan
All JuvaBun products are specifically designed to work also with thin and fine hair.
Our community means so much to us, but so does our Earth. Therefore, we decided to pack our JuvaBun hair extensions using reusable bags only, and with as little nylon as needed.
Additionally, and most importantly, JuvaBun hair extensions are 100% washable and can be cleaned with shampoo. In that way our products can be kept for years.
