We always want what we can’t have, right? Even when it comes to hair! Women with thin hair want thick hair, and women with thick hair complain they wish it were thinner! Women with fine hair all know the very clear struggle of finding hair styles that work for them. Often times the hair will fall flat after only 2 hours and tons of holding spray, and still nothing. Whereas women with thicker hair have to struggle even doing their hair, I heard it’s a job (literally). No worries, EVVEMI’s got you covered on how to make the process easier.
The trick that we’ve found for styling fine, thin hair is product, product, product. Sure, we can curl our hair super big, but who knows how long it’ll last til the curls fall, and forget the thought of adding 5lbs of holding spray! With a good volumizing shampoo, texture spray, and a handy dandy teasing comb, say ADIOS to flat, boring hair!
Tips for Thin Hair:
Don’t go for blunt, straight cuts. Always go for a look with layers. Straight, blunt cuts with no layers means no volume, everything falls flat to one length. Layers will allow the hair to be styled, falling at different lengths making it appear as if there’s more hair than there really is.
Use a Volumizing Shampoo! Typically what women with fine hair don’t want is for their hair to fall flat at the roots. Using a Volumizing Shampoo (which is basically a super cleansing shampoo, so don’t use it frequently if you have color treated hair, it’ll eat your color) will give a nice deep clean to your hair, removing dirt and build up from your hair that could be weighing it down.
Don’t condition at the roots! We shouldn’t be doing this anyway, but for those who do, STOP! Conditioner leaves a coat on your hair, which is why it feels so good after. But this coating on the roots is asking for weight, which means flat hair.
Don’t be afraid of teasing your hair, we’re not saying Dolly Parton style, but a little can change your entire look.
The trick we discovered for styling Thick Hair is giving it dimension, and removing as much weight as possible. Say good bye to waking up 3 hours earlier than your other friends, getting ready to hit the bar 5 hours before you’re actually supposed to go, and have a normal hair life!
Tips for Thick Hair:
Let your hair air dry 75% before putting a blow dryer to it. When you get out of the shower, towel dry as much as possible, and let it sit while you take care of something else. The trick here is getting rid of all of the moisture you can before attempting to manipulate it with a brush. Because the hair is almost dry, it’s a quicker process and you won’t wake up sore the next day (because we know, it’s a work out).
Use a lightweight shampoo and conditioner, you don’t want too much gunk going into your hair and making it feel 10 lbs heavier than it already does. Also look for products that target smoothing the hair, volume isn’t something we need right now, girlfriend.
When getting a hair cut, make sure to request your stylist give you layers. Like thin hair, layers are extremely useful for thick hair too! It gives you the opportunity to remove bulk/weight from your hair. It’s more easily managed this way.
When styling, section your hair! Why do we always skip this step?! This allows us to have more control of curling, straightening, braiding, etc. And I PROMISE it cuts your styling time in half.
