Volume, Fine, limp hair, Other, Brushes, Blow Dryer,
A pivotal year can be a great motivator for switching up your cut and colour. This month, John Frieda® Hair Care Stylist and International Creative Consultant, Harry Josh, answers an Elite Club member’s question on how to revamp and refresh her fine hair.
I am turning 50 this year. I would like to have my hair look thicker and change my hair color. I have been wearing the same hair style and color for over 15 years. I just can't find the style or color I should go with. I need help finding the right color and style for my thin baby fine hair. Help please!

The key to a great style for fine hair is achieving the right length. As fine hair grows longer it has a tendency to become even finer, so shorter cuts, like a bob, are great for fine hair. Another trick to making fine strands look thicker? Avoid texturized ends that often thin out hair even more—opt for blunt, clean ends instead.
When it's body you crave, the right product is essential. Start the battle against fine, limp hair in the shower by using Luxurious Volume Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner, making sure to keep conditioner mostly on your ends.
For a styler, I recommend using a mousse like Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse combined with the Luxurious Volume Blow-Dry Lotion Root Booster. These two products, when layered upon each other, will not only give your hair great texture, they will also provide long lasting volume.
Here's the secret for creating volume when you style: utilize a blow dryer and a good round brush. A round brush will create nice lift at your roots, and the heat from the blow dryer will make sure that your hair sets in a big, full shape, transforming fine hair into voluminous hair.
I highly recommend any woman to colour her hair because of what it can do for texture. If you've never coloured your hair and you're looking for a thicker, more viable and shiny hair texture, consider using John Frieda® Precision Foam Colour—it will give you that exact result.
When determining the best shade for your hair colour, use the Precision Foam Colour Shade Selector. There is a huge range of shades to choose from, and the Shade Selector will help
guide you to an ideal colour selection. Be sure to stay within two levels of your current hair colour, as this will make it easier to achieve flawless colour at home. If you're looking for a more dramatic colour change, however, seek a professional stylist's opinion.
