Fine hair is defined by the small diameter of each individual strand. It does not necessarily refer to the actual number of hairs on your scalp.
Some individuals with fine hair have more hair on their scalp than any other hair type. As each hair has a follicle with an oil gland, fine hair has a tendency to become oilier and limp quickly.If you have fine hair, your hair will feel thin and lack natural body and bounce. To keep the hair looking thicker and shiner it is best to wash your hair as soon as the oils are weighing the hair down.
Using gentle, lightweight shampoos and conditioners such as the Holistic Hair Pure or Sensitive ranges is recommended. The Sensitive shampoo is formulated with Apple cider vinegar which provides a volumising effect through its ability to reduce build-up. Apple cider vinegar is also great for closing the cuticle to reflect the hairs natural shine. Pure Shampoo & Conditioner are lightweight formulations with Aloe Vera and Manuka Honey to add condition and shine. Hair thinning is usually a reduction in the volume of hairs on the scalp or a gradual reduction in the diameter of individual hairs, sometimes both. This is due to varying factors.
