Your perfect brush is a flat paddle with wide bristles that separate the hair without damage.
Avoid products with alcohol in their top three ingredients. Alcohol is great at helping tame thick, wavy hair but will make fine, straight strands cling together.
Straight hair is the shiniest as light reflects from the cuticle. To maximize your natural asset, make the last rinse a cold one as this flattens the cuticle. Also, Do the last two to three minutes of your blow-dry on the cool setting with the nozzle facing downwards. Shine serums will help too.
If you’re aiming for volume, try not to handle your hair too much. Heat and oil from your palms can be enough to make fine hair floppy.
You can also add volume to your hair using color. Mix highlights and lowlights in three or four different shades to create depth and texture.
