Is Blonde Hair Finer Than Darker Hair?

The answer to this question is both yes and no. At an individual strand level, blonde hair is usually finer than darker hair. However, in some cases blondes will simply have more strands of hair on their head, so they may still have the full appearance of those with darker, thicker hair. What we can say about blonde hair is that because it’s finer on that individual strand level, it is therefore slightly weaker than other shades, and more prone to breakage. This is even more true for chemically bleached blonde hair, which will be damaged to some extent by the bleaching process.

Why Is My Fine Hair Looking Limp?

Everyone’s hair is different and there’s nothing at all wrong with having fine hair. The problem is that it can often end up looking limp if we’re not careful with the way that we treat and style it. If your hair is fine, be wary of products that will weigh it down. A light styling mousse, for example, will work far better than an oil or a cream, and will also add texture. If you do want to use an oil or a cream, just apply it to the tips of your hair, rather than all along the shaft.

Clever Ways To Add Volume To Fine Hair

There are many different ways you can add volume to fine hair, whatever its shade. It can start with something as one off as the right cut. Blow drying techniques can also help, whether you use hot rollers or simply blow dry upside down or using a diffuser and lifting at the roots. All of these techniques work by creating volume with style. It is also possible to add volume at the individual hair strand level, which you can do using specialized products and treatments. These volumizing products and treatments will add texture to the hair shaft, making each individual hair that degree thicker and giving the overall appearance of greater volume. If your hair is fine because it has become damaged — for example by bleaching — then repairing treatments can also help restore natural volume.

Keeping Your Blonde Hair Radiant While Adding Volume

The problem with adding volume to blonde hair is that the very ingredients that increase the volume can also decrease radiance. The rougher the texture of your hair, the thicker it will feel, but the less it will reflect the light. The result can be dull hair that doesn’t have the luminous color you’re looking for.
