How to deal with fine hair?

Who has never dreamed of getting up in the morning and leaving without combing their hair? It's the reality of fine, straight hair that slips into place easily in the fingers, rain or shine. And then, loose or attached, they are so cute (and soft), pioupiou's hair! Last good point (and not least):washing and drying are fast.

Beautiful hair reflexes

• We choose a “volume”, “fine hair” or soft shampoo. We rub a small amount of product on the lengths, without rubbing at the root, because the scalp is irritable.

• No daily shampoo, it doesn't boost volume. To loosen the roots, the best ally:dry shampoo. Spray it 20 cm from the scalp, wait two minutes, brush then scrunch the lengths with your fingers.

• We use a nourishing mask once a week if we have weakened hair, otherwise, one every two weeks. You may prefer a leave-in formula, such as dry oil or day cream, to be applied in small quantities to ends and lengths.

• Dry your hair upside down, lifting the roots with your fingers. It gives volume and boosts microcirculation. To obtain a tutor effect at the root, we create separations in the hair and we sprinkle a volume powder on it, which we massage with the fingers. If you want stiff ends, you go once with the straightener after spraying a heat-protective spray.

• The best gesture to obtain a lasting volume? The creping. Equipped with a tail comb, wick in the air, start from the tips and go down gently, until you obtain the desired "puffiness".

The anti-bad hair day gesture. To restore volume to flattened hair, head down, spray a veil of hairspray and use the hair dryer in the “cold air” position to fix. We then tousle with our fingers. Above all, we do not brush!
