If you have thin or fine hair, it’s not a challenge to guess your ultimate hair care goal—whether you succeed or not, the goal is to create the appearance of thick hair. Of course, that’s easier said than done, right? Well, the first step toward being successful with your objective is finding the right system of products—including shampoo and conditioner—for thin hair. Below, find our best shampoos for thin hair along with the other hair care products you should use with each.
When it comes to taking care of thin hair, it all starts with your shampoo (and conditioner). After all, washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner should be the first step in any hair care routine, regardless of your hair type. If you’ve been reaching for any old shampoo and conditioner in the shower, it’s time to rethink things. Look for a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for thin hair. Have your pick from our best shampoos for thin hair.
L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Shampoo: The EverPure Volume system, which consists of this sulfate-free shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Volume Conditioner, gently cleanses and revives the appearance of fine, flat hair, infusing hair with luminous shine and boosting body without weighing hair down. Apply the shampoo to wet hair and massage gently, then rinse thoroughly. Follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for one to three minutes before rinsing out.
L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Thickening Shampoo: The EverStrong thickening system carefully cleanses and purifies fragile, thin hair removing buildup and excess oils to help weak hair appear thicker. Apply the shampoo to wet hair and massage gently, then rinse thoroughly. Next, apply the L’Oréal Paris EverStrong Thickening Conditioner and leave it on for one to three minutes, then rinse out.
L’Oréal Paris Elvive Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo: The Volume Filler system, which includes this shampoo along with the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Volume Filler Thickening Conditioner and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Volume Filler Densifying Gelee, can help generate a thicker feel and infuse hair with the appearance of lush, lasting volume over time. Apply the shampoo, massaging it onto wet hair to build lather, then rinse. Follow up by applying the coordinating conditioner and leaving it on for one to three minutes. Rinse out, then apply the leave-in gelee evenly through damp hair and blow-dry. For added volume, blow-dry your hair while lifting your roots with a round brush.
Editor’s tip: Wash your hair in lukewarm water, as super-hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving it feeling extra dry.
Washing your hair may seem totally intuitive, but it’s actually possible you aren’t using your shampoo and conditioner the right way. When you have thin hair in particular, there are specific steps you should be following. Here’s how to wash thin hair.
Step into the shower and saturate your hair completely with water before breaking out your shampoo. Once your hair is thoroughly soaked, massage the shampoo onto your hair, then rinse it out.
Pick up the conditioner that coordinates with your shampoo and smooth it onto the ends of your hair. Be sure not to apply too much, as using lots of conditioner can weigh down your hair and make it look limp. No thanks! Most conditioners should be left on for one to three minutes, then you can rinse again.
Finish up the rest of your shower routine, then hop out. Now, it’s time to dry your hair. Since hair is more fragile when it’s wet, be gentle. Instead of using a towel to soak up the water, switch to a soft, cotton t-shirt, which will be easier on your hair.
Hair creams, hair pomades, and any other products that are on the thicker side may be too much for your thin hair. Try using a lightweight hair spray to style your thin tresses instead. While your hair is still damp, spritz with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to embrace your natural texture and achieve a pretty wavy hairstyle.
