Evil fine hair!!!


I have mousey-brown *shudders* really fine hair, and lots of it. (By fine I don't mean thin) and wondered if anyone had any tips for making it look un-greasy *waits for someone to say wash it - I do...it still looks greasy and just...yuk* and volumous (word?) product recommendations are welcome. :D Thanks :D

I know this trick that helps make your hair LOOK less greasy. I use it when I come back after camping in the bush (you just don't get to wash your hair...) I put flour (as in plain cooking flour) along my part. if you dust it in really well it doesn't make your hair look grey at all, it simply makes it look fresh.

Yes, I will also admit that sometimes when I'm a lazy, grotty girl and havn't washed my hair for two days I use this trick before going out.

It works a treat!

^Talcum powder also works, as long as you don't use too much (then it goes a funny grey colour).

Just dunk your head under the faucet, grrl. Takes like two minutes WITH shampoo.

Lemondrop - my hair does get washed, with shampoo I might add. It's just limp and greasy looking in general, it's a hard look to explain.

Thanks for the iput peeps :)

Have you tried blow-drying it with a roundbrush? This really works for me for volume (my hair loves to be flat). Also, certain hairsprays will give your hair a healthy sheen.

You could also get it cut in a style that helps for volume. I've had this done before and it works a treat, just make sure you get a good hairstylist so they understand what you mean.

Have you tried volumising shampoo? This also works for me, so much that I can't wash it before I sleep other wise it stands up awkwardly at the roots when I wake up!

Hope these suggestions help.

I hope my advice works because my hair is the exact opposite of yours, really dry but very thick.

-I heard the Paul Mitchell Shampoo and Conditioner line thickens your hair.
-Olive Oil is another way to thicken your hair. (I <3 Olive Oil)
-Avoid putting conditioner on the scalp.

Tigi Superstar products are bit expensive, but worth it! They give LOADS of volume and don't make it greasy at all - I've tried the shampoo and the hairspray.

Volumising shampoo will help.

Over washing your hair can be just as bad as not washing it often enough so if your hair gets greasy quickly it might be in response to harsh shampoo that encourages your hair to make too much oil.

Dry shampoo/talcum/flour/whatever is good for lifting grease but if your hair is really greasy then I would recommend only using it for one day otherwise it could just start to look dirty from it.

My hair is exactly like that. Two things that I did that worked:
1. Tie it back in cool hairdos: Cornrows, bun, ponytail tied into multiple braids (I liked the last one particularly, back when I had butt-length hair).
2. Get a short haircut. I just did at the beginningof the school year, and my hair looks way poofier than I ever thought it could!

Wash your hair every day.
Get layers, lots of them.
Dye it, alot. It'll dry it out.
Use Aussie shampoo.
DYE IT.
DYE IT.
DYE IT.
Use dry shampoo.
Seriously, wash your hair in the morning. Every morning before school/college/work.

Akiayama, over washing can cause hair to be greasier because it starts to "need" to be washed every day.

Blunt cutting can make hair look denser than texturised hair so make sure that layers are cut straight.

I have the same kind of hair as you, and my experience is that washing it often is the absolutely WORST thing you can do. Spikey have already explained why. If possible, try not to wash your hair with any kind of soap more than once a week. If your hair is like mine, washing it every day will eventually lead to it looking manky by evening. Rinsing your hair every day in as cold water as you can is okai though.

In my eyes it's a matter of, be in public with greasy hair, or wash it every day, if it's like mine, not much seems to work.
Except hair dye.

After I wash my hair, if I put mousse in it and then blowdry it, I always get a lot of volume, and it stays even if I don't wash my hair the next day.

This was posted quite a long time ago but I thought I'd reply anyway, hope that okay!

I have exactly the same type of hair as you and used to have exactly the same problem so I actually stopped using shampoo or at least used shampoo with very little chemical ingredients (And no Sodium Laureth Sulphate which is like floor cleaner on my scalp!).

I also found using Bicarbonate of Soda mixed with water to make a paste a really good alternative to shampoo, it immediately took out the greasiness and even gave it a bit of volume! (It obviously doesn't foam up and feels a bit weird, but I loved it).
I experimented around with quite a few no-shampoo methods until I found something that stopped me having to wash my hair everyday and didn't flatten it.
Hope this helps a little bit! smile

^^^Sweet-pea, do you know if the bicarb of soda thing strips dyed hair or not? I have thin dyed pink hair and I usually just wash it once a week with shampoo, but I'm thinking of switching to a no-poo method once this bottle runs out.

Hm, I'm not sure, I have got bleached hair so it wouldn't effect it. I think I'd be a bit careful of using it on coloured hair, especially such an artificial colour as pink. Aloe Vera gel makes your hair lovely and soft and i think you can use it as an alternative to shampoo and conditioner, though I'm not 100% on that one as I've only used it once or twice as a conditioner! Sorry I can't be more helpful!

For hair dyed in unnatural colours rincing it in water mixed with apple cider vinegar is a good alternative to shampo and conditioner. In my experience it actually makes the colour stay longer, plus making the hair softer and more shiny. However, I wouldn't say it gives more volume.
