Color Wow Carb Cocktail Leave In Treatment for Thin Hair: $26

This leave-in treatment instantly makes thin hair appear bigger and fuller after a blow dry session. One reviewer notes, “It took me a couple of attempts to use the Carb Infused Cocktail, as I have fine shoulder length hair. I did use too much product at first on damp hair. After I adjusted the amount of product my hair had more body and my waves looked good.”

Kevin Murphy Anti-Gravity Oil Free Volumizer: $34

You may think out-of-this-world volume isn’t achievable in your fine strands, but with this product, it totally is. Take it from this happy customer who gushed, “It leaves hair a little wild but is truly the best volumizer I’ve ever had. And I have tried a lot of them, almost all high-end. I have now purchased a second bottle.”

Davines This Is a Dry Texturizer: $32

We could go on and on about this texturizer, but we’ll let a very passionate reviewer take it away. “Throw out all your drugstore products, seriously. Hands down the best product I have ever used. I have pretty healthy, soft hair so I need more grit and volume. This did not make hair feel dirty like other products. It’s just perfect. Amazing smell too. Best smell ever. Don’t stop making this, please.”

Toppik Hair Building Fibers: $29.95

All around, this is a great cover-up product for thinning hair. As one reviewer notes, “This works great! I have light thinning near my hair line and this stuff did the trick to cover that and give the appearance of fuller hair. I’ve tried other spray products and this being more of a powder based is easier to use and looks completely natural.”

Unite Texturiza Spray: $35

Our hair never falls flat with this finishing spray. Like, never ever. “I have very, very fine hair that won’t hold a style for more than a few minutes until I started using Texturiza. It gives me just the right amount of ‘grit’ to work my fine strands into the style I want and it stays put. I don’t even need to use hairspray for a firmer hold, Texturiza does it all,” shares one user.

Matrix Biolage Volumebloom Shampoo: $21

This review basically says it all: “I have very long but thin hair which gets pretty greasy really quick. In return, it makes my hair very flat and sad. I needed to find a shampoo that would give my hair some life even in between washes and I have found it! I love how many bubbles this produces as I feel that deep clean and makes the greasiness stay away and allows me to have a good voluminous hair day. I no longer have to hide my hair under hairbands at work every day. I am waiting on the volume spray to complete my hair routine. With this shampoo (and conditioner) you will get clean, moisturized, voluminous, and amazing smelling hair!”

GHD Total Volume Foam: $25

We always use this foam before styling our strands. It adds that body and fullness our thin strands tresses need. “I have quite fine hair and this doesn’t weigh it down or cause dullness,” shares one reviewer.

Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse: $39

Mousse can get sticky, but this one won’t leave your strands the slightest bit crunchy. We’ll let this eager reviewer take over though. “I had ditched mousse for over a decade, but gave this a try and I’m using it every time I wash my hair now. I have very fine hair prone to frizz, but also thick, long, and curly. This is the first product that accentuates my curls and tames frizz efficiently while volumizing the crap out of it at the same time. I’m obsessed! A small amount is all that is needed and even the one time I put too much in a section it didn’t get crunchy, it was easy to work out and smooth to correct. It’s pricey but performs outstandingly and one-of-kind. Also smells amazing without being overpowering.”

Ouai Texturizing Hair Spray: $28

If your fine hair has problems with holding, this is just the thing for you. “I have very fine hair that would never hold a curl until this texturizing spray. I love it,” notes one reviewer.
