As someone with thin, fine hair, I can tell you good shampoos are few and far between.
Like yes, all shampoos claim to ‘cleanse’ your hair, but if you don’t use the right kind of shampoo, it can actually leave your hair feeling dirtier than before you washed it.
Seriously, I've lost count of the number of times I’ve washed and dried my hair only to have a mini melt-down because it looked flatter and greasier than before.
If this is sounding familiar, good news: I’ve finally figured out what was wrong.
Turns out my hair doesn't have a personal vendetta against me. I was just using the wrong shampoo for fine hair. Allow me to explain...
Wait, What’s the Deal With Fine Hair and Shampoos?
Alright, so fine hair tends to get real greasy, real fast.
This means we have to wash our hair a lot more often than other hair types to avoid looking like, well, Gollum.
But washing your hair isn't always enough to keep fine hair from looking flat and slicked.
Some shampoos are packed with silicone and heavily-moisturising ingredients... which is fine if you’ve got thick, luscious locks. Love that for you. But for us fine-haired peeps, loads of heavy moisturising ingredients can weigh our locks down, resulting in hair that looks and feels flatter than an IKEA flat pack.
Bonus points: Using the wrong shampoo for fine hair can leave you with those rats tail-like greasy clumps of hair at the back. You know the ones.
For all of the reasons listed above, I’ve been on the hunt for a GOOD shampoo that: cleanses fine hair, is gentle enough to allow for frequent washes, helps strengthen to avoid split ends and breakage, and also leaves hair feeling voluminous and fab AF.
And guys, I think I’ve found The One. Just quietly, things have gotten pretty serious.
Let me introduce you to the Kérastase Genesis Bain Hydra-Fortifiant Shampoo for Thin Hair.
