Four common mistakes made by men with fine hair (and how to fix them)


If you have ruled out the option of wearing a shaved head, something that works very well for many men with fine hair, Avoiding these mistakes will help you get the most out of what you have.

The following are four habits that work against fine hair and what to do instead to show off a more stylish and full-bodied hair:

Washing your hair infrequently

Noticing that their hair begins to thin out, many men associate it with washing their hair too often. But not washing your hair when necessary only makes the problem worse, making the hair appear even finer and causing the scalp to be less healthy. If you have fine hair, consider washing it regularly to keep it full-bodied and prevent problems like sebum and dandruff, which can accelerate hair loss.

Dry the hair only with the towel

Dispense with dryers is to waste one of the best tools to give hair volume in a natural way. After washing your hair, towel dry it a bit and, while it is still damp, apply hot air. Remember to direct the strands upwards so that they acquire the maximum possible volume.

Use heavy products

Certain hair products, both conditioning and setting, add weight to the hair, making it appear even finer. Avoid applying very liquid products, creamy or oily. Instead, look for products that include the word volumizer or pre-blow dryer. When styling your hair, think dry, as is the case with powdered waxes and all matte finish products in general. A very popular and recommended one is Schwarzkopf's Dust It:

Getting the wrong haircut

The haircut is key when it comes to concealing fine hair. As usual, a safe bet is to wear it neither too short nor too long, with the upper part longer than the sides and the nape. Highlighting or dyeing your hair a shade lighter can help hide a lack of density.

Actor Theo James ('Divergent') can serve as inspiration. As you can see, her hair is shorter on the sides, while the upper part is longer, but not too long.
