Women with fine hair recognize that summer heat and humidity exacerbate limp hair issues. Shun lifeless, flat hair with a terrific cut and these simple style tips. Incorporate the use of products from the new Pantene Fine Hair Solutions line to amp up and maintain the volume. Here are some tips on how to style and care for fine hair in the summertime:
1. Professional Cut
To style fine hair, especially in summer, start with a professional cut by a stylist experienced with the drawbacks of fine hair. Do not be surprised if the stylist recommends a shorter style for manageability. With fine hair, a layered cut works best. It takes the weight off drooping locks, and it makes hair look instantly fuller.
Shoot for a cut with feathery, textured bangs. Ask the stylist about tapering the sides of hair to create a wispy frame around the face. Done right, wispy is a fabulous cut for fine hair, creating the illusion that the hair is thicker than it actually is.
2. Shampoo and Conditioner for Volume
With an easy-to-use product finder tool, Pantene takes the guesswork out of choosing which products are best for any hair type, including fine hair. Visit pantene.com or pantene.com/product finder for a detailed list of customized hair solutions.
Before styling fine hair, prep hair with an initial boost using Pantene’s specifically designed volume shampoo and conditioner. For fine hair that is flat, dry or fragile, the new Pantene line has a product that will add vitality to that stuck-to-the-head, summer hair.
3. Avoid Heavy Pastes and Gels in Fine Hair
Fine hair droops naturally, but summer heat and humidity makes it wilt even more. Using heavy styling aids or paste in fine hair is out of the question. This will simply deflate any body, if it exists at all. Even the best or most expensive haircut will flop in summer if the hair products are not right for a particular hair type.
Do not load up fine hair with weighty goop. Instead, shampoo and condition with Pantene. Then apply Pantene Fine Hair Solutions Root Lifter Spray Gel to wet or damp hair, working into the roots. This lightweight product has the added benefit of promoting all-day shine and volume at the same time. Thorough product information is available at pantene.com.
4. Simple Blow Dry Style
A terrific, sassy haircut, paired with the new Pantene Professional Level Style Shaping Hairspray will require only a quick blow dry to style. Just blow dry and, using the hairspray, shape fine hair into place with fingertips. To add even more body, flip hair over to blow dry and spray underneath.
5. Round Brush Styling
Work Pantene Root Lifter Gel into damp hair. Encourage body in fine, flat hair using a blow dryer and round, vented brush. The size of the brush should accommodate the length of hair.
One section at a time, wrap hair around the brush and dry. To keep the style going on a hot, humid summer day, spray with Pantene’s Lasting Volume Hairspray. This product in the new line offers a maximum amount of humidity defense for fine hair.
