Try these products — from dry shampoo to thickening serum — to amp up hair volume and transform fine or thin hair instantly.

4 Hair Products to Boost Fine, Thin Hair

1. Dry Shampoo

Fine and thin hair is prone to greasiness that makes hair look limp and flat. Eliminate greasiness with dry shampoo, which eliminates extra oil to give fine hair some extra oomph.

How to use dry shampoo:

  1. Separate hair into sections, hold the bottle 12” inches away, and spray into roots
  2. Use your fingertips to massage dry shampoo into your roots
  3. Let dry shampoo sit for one minute. This will allow it to work its magic by absorbing excess oil.
  4. Brush or comb hair and then style as usual.

If you accidentally apply too much dry shampoo, don’t panic! You can use a blow-dryer to help remove a little of the excess product. Then, brush through hair.

Dry Shampoo Tips:

  • Use a dry shampoo in a shade that matches your hair color after styling to add extra volume to your look. Try Batiste® dry shampoo in Divine Dark, Beautiful Brunette, or Brilliant Blonde, depending on your hair color.
  • Apply dry shampoo directly to your roots for fresh-looking hair.
  • Shake the bottle well before and between spritzes to prevent white residue.

2. Densifying Conditioner

Don’t be afraid to use conditioner! All hair types (including fine or thin hair) can benefit from moisturizing hair with a high-quality conditioner.

The trick is to choose a conditioner that won’t weigh down finer strands, like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner. This unique lightweight formula provides weightless moisture that leaves hair looking fuller and shinier. With an impressive ingredient list that includes Biotin, Keratin and Zinc, Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner makes hair look thicker.

You can also use conditioner to exfoliate your scalp, removing scalp build-up from styling products like dry shampoo. Start by mixing equal parts conditioner with brown sugar. Shampoo hair normally, then apply the exfoliating mixture to your scalp. Gently massage into your scalp using your fingertips. Let sit the mixture sit for 5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with cold water. Repeat monthly for best results.

3. Body-Boosting Styling Product

When it comes to adding body to fine hair, Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir can make all the difference. Densifying Elixir promotes thicker-looking hair with Ana:Tel™, a proprietary complex containing clinically tested ingredients derived from natural sources, such as pea sprouts.

4. Hair Fibers
