I used to have long think hair. I always got compliments on my hair before. But since I had my daughter who is 2 1/2 my hair is nothing like it used to be. I never used to lose hardly a single strand in the shower, now my hair is clogging the drian in the shower. But any way My hair is very fine. I cut my hair back in june to the middle of my neck and currently it only grew from then to my neck to my shoulders. Thats like Traggic!!! seeing that before If I cut my hair within a couple months it would be long again.
My problem is I can't even keep my hair long because its so thin now! exspecially in pictures the thinnes shows!
I have tried some things but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Intresting.My suggestion to add to those posted above would be to buy some good hair products for thickening your hair.I've heard really good things about Nioxin hair shampoo.You can find it in salons.It is for people who have very fine hair naturally or thinning hair due to the aging process or have had an illness.It is supposed to work by strengthing the hair yet to grow out of your scalp just yet.There are also some good thickening sprays and such you can buy too.
Something that might help in the meantime is when you are drying your hair blow dry your hair up. When I'm blowdrying, I bend over and blow the hair up. This really adds a lot of volume... and make sure you aren't using too many products to weigh your hair down. Use light, fluffy products like mousse instead of over-oily, thick ones.
Hi! I also have fine hair, and although oil treatments and extra conditioning make your hair softer it does nothing to make it look thicker. When you use lots of conditioners or oils fine hair tends to lay flat and limp. My suggestion is to get a flattering cut for your new hairtype, and before you blowdry use mousse and a dry hairspray to give your hair texture. I hope this works for you!
Hey you guys, Thank you for your great comments! I have tryed some of your comments before. I always blow dry my hair upside down and I recently got my hair cut in layers so I could fluff it up some what..lol But I am going to try that Shampoo fuller thicker hair. I have herd good stuff about it and now hearing about it I should try it.
I was also thinking about maybe getting some hair extentions. I already wear hair pieces like fluffy bunns and those type of things. Has anyone gone that route?
Omega 3s are also great for skin and hair. You can get them in fish oil supplements or you can start eating more foods that are rich in omega 3s. My derm. told me about the benefit of omega 3s and I have read it in some magazines to. You won't see change overnight but after a couple of months your hair will be healthier.

Good, quality hair extensions are VERY expensive. Cheap ones look cheap.
However, the main problem with hair extensions is that they really damage (when being applied and again when taking them off, as you need to periodically) the hair you have, especially since it's already thin and fine.
I would definitely stay away from that.
A good, perhaps pixie short, haircut might be enough to make your hair look quite full and fluffy especially with the right styling aids.
