fine hair


Without a laborious blow-dry or fist full of crunch-inducing mousse, introducing volume to fine hair can be a challenge.

So when we heard whispers of a new foam conditioner which can be applied and rinsed out while showering, we simply had to try it.

While initially sceptical as to how much benefit could actually be derived from what could be perceived as a gimmicky product, when tested by the SHEmazing! team the Pantene Pro-V Air-Light Foam Conditioner proved itself a rare gem in a market brimming with false hope.  

This unique conditioner uses tiny champagne-sized bubbles to distribute nourishing ingredients throughout the entire head.  Because its formula is weightless in nature, the Air-Light Foam will not rest heavy on thin hair therefore allowing it to appear more volumised.

What’s interesting about this product is that it is as useful to those with thicker locks as it is those with fine hair because its lightweight formation allows users to thoroughly condition their hair from root to tip without weighing down the strands or encouraging the scalp to become greasy.

Where traditional conditioners often leave the hair closest to the head soft but flat, the Pantene Air-Light Foam boosts each strand from the base while leaving it conditioned, salon smooth and, most importantly, with a desirable amount of volume throughout.

Pantene Pro-V Air-Light Foam Conditioner will be available in pharmacies nationwide from February 2017.  RRP: €5.99.

Fine hair ladies, we feel for you. 

No matter what you do to it or how you style it, thirty seconds later it falls limp again. Sigh.

Well, all that's about to change!

Woman's Health visited Drybar in New York City to learn a lesson about blowing out fine hair and we have all the top tips from their visit!

Read on to achieve big, voluminous hair! 

After washing, apply an egg-sized dollop of mousse into your hair, including the roots to add extra volume. Don't worry about using it all over, it won't appear greasy afterwards. 

Next, use a detangler brush to distribute the mousse evenly. Remember to always brush AFTER you put in the product. 

When you're happy with the last step, roughly dry your hair at the root to get most of the moisture out. Then flip your hair down while you dry it for even more volume. 

Next, when your hair is about half-dry, separate it using clips. Divide the front of your hair into two parts and clip back the rest. 

Then use a round ceramic brush to give your hair that last little bit of oomph. 

Wrap your hair from tip to root around the circular brush, for a fabulous, bouncy blow dry. 

Make sure that all your hair is dry! You don't want one wet piece to bring down the rest!



Are you using the right hair brush for your hair type? Bet you didn’t even know there was a right and wrong one.  Read on for the low-down on what brush would suit your tresses best:

Detangle thick hair
If your thick hair is prone to knots you will need a flat paddle brush to get through it.

Detangle wet hair
A wide set teeth comb will be your best friend.

Got curls?
Opt for a comb with two sets of wide spaced teeth. Stay clear of a brush if you’ve got natural curls; however, if you feel you need one go for a boar haired round brush.

Blow dry fine hair
You’ll need nylon bristles to avoid damaging your hair.

Detangling fine hair
You will need a workhorse brush with soft, flexible bristles to avoid wrecking the hair.

Long hair
A large paddle brush is a must and it is great for blow drying your locks straight
