13 of the Best Volumizing Hair Sprays for Fine Hair
We all have our hair woes: frizz, split ends, dullness, product build-up, and other ickies. But some things are harder to fight, like our hair type. When you’re blessed with fine hair—meaning your strands are very small in diameter—you deal with your own set of issues. So instead of dryness, you’re more prone to getting oily faster than your coarser counterparts. (You have many, many small strands that each have their own follicle to produce oil. Lovely, right?) Instead of height-defying frizz, you might find that your hair lacks something in the volume department, but that’s one icky we can definitely work with.
We’ve rounded up the best hair sprays to get those strands heading in the right direction, which for fine hair means up! Some are spritzed before a blow-dry, some take care of second-day hair, and some will hold those small strands in place all day long. Short or long, thick or thin, a Southern girl’s hair can always benefit from a pick-me-up product, and these 13 hair sprays for fine hair are the best tricks to have under your sleeve.
