Big, voluminous hair will never go out of style, although it may be difficult for people with fine hair to achieve. The secret is to find a product that adds volume without weighing down your locks. That’s why it’s important to invest in products specifically formulated for finer hair.
Here at John Frieda, our Volume Lift range contains Air Silk Technology to add volume and ultra-light body to your locks, leaving your hair lightweight and touchably soft. So if you’ve got thick hair envy, take a look at our list of the best fine hair products.
Hair care for fine hair
Voluminous hair really does start by choosing a good shampoo and conditioner for fine hair. Our Lightweight Shampoo and Conditioner will give your hair a real boost, while gently cleansing and detangling your fine locks.
Formulated with Air-Silk Technology, the shampoo makes hair feel super clean, giving you that natural volume and bouncy movement, whilst the conditioner works to transform fine frizzy hair into super smooth thickened locks. These two products are the bread and butter of your fine hair care needs. If you want more info on how to keep your locks clean and nourished, check out our piece on how to get healthy looking hair.
If your fine hair needs some extra love, then try our Lightweight Conditioning Mist from our Volume Lift range. This leave-in spray acts as an added conditioner for fine hair, nourishing hair and restoring strength, silkiness and shine without weighing your hair down. This lightweight formula is ideal for reducing breakage, with a bonus of heat protection. Just apply all over clean, damp hair and style as you usually would.
Fine hair products for coloured hair
We also have products that compliment both fine hair and coloured hair. Dyed hair needs special treatment as the chemicals used to change your hair colour are quite harsh to the strands. Our best shampoo for coloured hair is our Colour Care Shampoo because it maintains texture and volume without fading colour.
Formulated with a Caffeine Vitality Complex, this shampoo adds space between hair strands to provide a boost of volume to dyed, fine hair.
For the best results, follow up with our Colour Care Conditioner. This hair colour conditioner is perfect for fine, dyed hair and works to detangle while adding flexible firmness to fine strands.

Try out protein hair treatments
Just like the body, hair can benefit from a protein-rich diet. Very fine hair or thin hair can benefit from added protein as it can help strands look and feel thicker and stronger. If your locks are looking a little dull and lifeless, it may be time to add some protein into your hair care. To add extra nutrients to your hair, be sure to try out our Core Restore Shampoo and Conditioner.
The protein shampoo contains our Protein-Strength Complex which brings protein-deficient hair into balance, volumising hair after every wash. This conditioner is unique in that it has a clear formula and doesn’t contain heavy ingredients, resulting in an impressive level of volume and vitality. Pair this with the conditioner and you have a winning combination.
This shampoo and conditioner combo is best used with our Core Restore Advanced Protein Volumiser. This powerful formula penetrates deep for an instantly visible transformation from fine thin hair, to strong volumised locks. This product is safe for colour-treated hair and works to progressively strengthen hair fibres to create and maintain your volumised style, with a softened, natural feel.
The best styling products for fine hair
Protecting your hair from the harsh heat of your stylers is essential in retaining moisture and keeping your hair from drying out. Lucky for all of you volume seekers, our Root Booster and Blow Out Spray not only maximise fullness with their Air-Silk Technology, but they contain heat protection too!
The booster acts as a hair thickening product, giving your hair an instant boost for natural-feeling style with a non-weighty formula. Just spray generously and evenly onto towel-dried hair, focusing on the roots for crown volume. Like the booster, the blow out spray is activated by the blow-drier’s heat, providing naturally full, touchable, and long lasting volume, with the look and feel of more hair. Just apply the blow dry spray evenly with a comb from root to tip.
Once your hair is blow-dried and volumised, you may want to add some re-enforcement for long-lasting hold and fullness. That’s where our Lightweight Hairspray comes into your fine hair care regime.
Our ultra-fine volumising hairspray holds volume in place, without that weighty feeling. This is the best hairspray for fine hair thanks to its formula – not only does it add more flexibility to shape your style, but it creates volume whilst providing humidity resistance. Our top tip is to create additional volume by gently pushing crown hair upward once you’ve sprayed.
