TOP 3 Hair Products To Style & Give Texture To Long And Fine Hair



Ever since I was young I've struggled with the fact that I have fine, straight and lifeless hair. I never really managed to give it body, lift and texture. Any kind of products I would put in my hair, especially now that it's long, would make my hair greasy and weigh it down tremendously. You can imagine my disappointment every time I would try a new product and it turned my hair into an absolute mess. Also frizz, and lots of it, is something that is an issue for my hair type. I finally tackled all of my hair troubles and today I'm here to share with you my must have, top 3 hair products to prep, style and give volume and texture to long and fine hair! 


- John Frieda Secret Agent Touch-Up Creme €9.99

As soon as I get out of shower, and I have thoroughly shampooed and conditioned my hair with my favorite products, I apply the John Frieda Secret Agent Touch-Up Creme as a part of my prepping routine. Using a pea size amount, I make sure to coat the ends of my hair and then use the left overs on the baby hairs I have around my forehead. The creme will soften my hair, detangle and tame about half of the frizz. If you prefer a low budget option for this step, a leave in conditioner (spray) or applying your regular conditioner using it as a cream, can also help, but I find the creme from John Frieda to be the best. 


- Nivea Volume Care Styling Mousse €3.99

The key to giving volume, texture and body to long and fine hair is mousse, mousse, mousse and more mousse. The great thing is, you can use it on dry or towel dry hair. Some people only apply mousse on their ends, I like to apply it mainly on my roots, after the touch-up creme has had time to sink in. I shake the can, place a good amount of mousse in the palm of my hand, rub my hands together and start combing through the hair on the top of my head. I brush my hair one last time with a hair brush to make sure there aren't any knots and then I blow dry everything with my head upside down until the mousse has dried, on the high heat setting. The product doesn't feel sticky, greasy or hard like hairspray, it just makes you hair feel thicker, more manageable and the heat activated care in this mousse from Nivea will treat and prevent frizz. It's pretty awesome!


Kruidvat Volume Dry Shampoo €1.99

I never thought I would say this but I found the best and possibly cheapest dry shampoo ever. Yes, I have tried the Batiste Dry Shampoo and even though I really like it, dry shampoo is one of those products that finishes way too fast to be spent so much money on. This dry shampoo from Kruidvat smells really nice (like you actually shampooed your hair), creates loads of volume if you have fine hair and helps to manage frizz. I have to keep it real though, I'm not sure this would be a great option if you have darker hair because it will definitely leave a white cast. I like to use this on no poo days when I only wash my hair with water, when I want a voluminous hairdo (it makes the process a whole lot easier) or after completing the two steps above.

  2. Phyto Phytovolume shampoo, which is expensive (14 euro I think) but you only use a tiny amount so a bottle lasts 6 months for me. Rinsing my hair in soft water; if you live in an area with hard water (Paris has it bad) I buy the big bottles of water for ironing and this makes a huge difference.

    1. Girl, try hair mousse (not a volumizing one) it will make a world of difference! ;) Nivea has a styling mousse with a heat protectant built into it, maybe that will help? Xxxx
