Fine and thin hair is lovely and silky to the touch and can be much easier to style than other types. It suits many styles, a low bun or a high ponytail can look effortlessly chic.
So, what’s the difference between fine and thin hair? These terms are often used interchangeably but aren’t quite the same. Fine hair is when the size of the strands are smaller, and are more often seen in lighter hair colours such as blondes. Thin hair is when there are fewer strands of hair on the head itself.

How to use your hair brush: brush your hair daily
Using a brush with soft or flexible bristles such as our Cherub 2.0 means that you can detangle your hair gently, without breakage as it won’t apply too much stress to your delicate hair.
Don’t shampoo too often
The temptation for those of us with fine or thin hair can be to wash often as hair can feel greasy after a short period of time, but over-washing can encourage overproduction of oil making your hair appear flat and lifeless.
Aim for two or three times a week and use dry shampoo in between washes. When you do wash your hair, stay away from sulphates as they can dry out your hair and make it more susceptible to breakages, instead use a volumizing shampoo to give your hair a boost.
Sleep in silk
Sleeping on a silk pillowcase or using a silk cap can help keep your hair frizz and tangle free, as the soft glide of silk is less damaging than harsh cotton.
Have regular trims
Regular trims can help keep your hair as strong and healthy as it can be and reduce your split ends. But make sure your hairdresser is also using one of Tangle Angel’s fantastic brushes.
Use a heat protector
When you heat style your hair, be sure to use good quality defence spray to protect your delicate strands.
Get the right cut
As a general rule of thumb, shoulder-length styles are flattering to fine and thin hair as it creates a more full-looking ‘do.
