Learning to embrace the hair type you’re born with isn’t always easy, so we’ve teamed up with
Pantene's In-Shower Foam Conditioner to encourage fine-haired women to love their locks and lavish them with care.
Every head of hair is different, complete with its own special quirks and characteristics. Despite this, there are a few tricks that are guaranteed to work for each hair type.
If you're still struggling to master the finer points of having lighter locks, read on for four handy hacks that'll help you make every day a great hair day.
Embrace the Modern Trend For Midi Hair
Choosing shoulder-grazing, mid-length styles with the addition of blunt, subtle layers will add bounce and the illusion of thicker hair that would never be achievable with longer locks. Parting your hair to one side will also give it oomph and help you avoid flatness. Pantene ambassador Ben Cooke says, “Fine hair holds long bobs, short waves, and shoulder-length chops perfectly, and an elongated fringe will boost volume. Use a smoothing lotion on your hair and blow-dry into shape. Use a straightener to smooth the length on top and finish with a light hold hairspray.”

Pep Up Your Ponytails
Fine-hair structure is naturally straighter, so it’s great news that sleek and poker-straight hairstyles are back with a vengeance for 2017, and there's nothing like a glamourous, slick ponytail to achieve this powerful look. If you want to add a little more pep to your ponytail, vertically insert kirby grips onto the underside of your hairband and down into the hair, and you'll see a noticeable pop. As an on-trend twist, you could also use a strand of your hair or a small plait as a hairband, wrapping it around the base of the ponytail for an extra boost.

Try a New Parting
Break away from parting your hair on the same side as you always do and try doing so on the opposite side. The natural resistance your hair gives to being parted in a different direction will add lift and fullness. Just smooth down any flyaways with your favourite styling product, like Pantene’s Smooth & Sleek Dry Oil.

Condition All Over
It’s an age-old misconception that we should only condition the ends of our hair to avoid greasy roots, and it’s time for this to change! Fine hair, even more so than thick hair, actually requires more conditioning due to its weaker structure, which is more prone to damage. Understandably, cream conditioners can leave a heavier residue, which is why a lighter product like
Pantene’s Air-light Foam Conditioner is the perfect solution. Ten times lighter than cream conditioners, Pantene Foam can be applied from root to tip and rinsed out like a regular conditioner, ensuring every strand of hair is moisturised from the inside out, but without the same weighed-down, greasy feeling. Hair will feel nourished, light, (and swishy!).
