Fine and Straight - Your 3-Step summer hair plan

No-Heat Plan for fine and straight hair

1. In the shower: Your hair probably gets oily quickly, so shampoo daily with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Paul Mitchell Lemon Sage thickening Shampoo is gentle enough to use frequently. Conditioner weighs down fine hair; apply it only from midlength to ends. Try Aveda Pure Abundance Volumizing Clay Conditioner which has kaolin clay to make hair appear fuller.

2. When hair is still damp: Straight, fine hair falls even flatter when you use the wrong styling products. Stay away from oils, serums, or anything that boasts "extra hold" - these formulas can be heavy. Instead, choose a lightweight volumizing spray, like L'Oreal Professionnel Volume Expand Volumizing Root Lift Spray, and mist it only at the roots. Blow-drying for a few minutes helps the product create some oomph.

3. Just before you leave the house: Hairspray is drying because it contains alcohol; use it to reduce oiliness. TreSemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray provides hold without freezing your style in place, and also adds shine.


  1. You totally need to do this for those of us with wavy, frizzy hair that HAS to be styled in order to look even semi decent =-) That'd be nice!

  2. I'll try to do something in the next week. Check out "thick and straightish" 3 step plan. That kind of covers you.

  3. I am loving those posts so much...Sweetie have a wonderful weekend:)
    See you soon
