The Best Shampoo for Thin, Fine, Flyaway, Straight Hair

Published: March 14, 2014

If you have a headful of baby fine type hair you probably dread windy weather, oily tresses, sweaters and haircuts. The latter one because you are frequently advised to cut your hair a lot shorter, or, at least encouraged to cut it. There are a lot of products used to style hair, but, in my opinion, the very best remedy for fine, baby textured hair is the type of shampoo you choose.

  1. Matrix Total Results

    Matrix Total Results Amplifying Shampoo gives you hair lift and fullness. After you shampoo and style, your hair will seem a little dryer but not brittle. Your hair will have consideralbly more fullness without losing any of its length. The price for 10 oz is about $9.00. This product is available in different economy sizes also. Matrix Total Results is the best volumizing shampoo for long, fine hair that you want to wear big and loose, and possibly blow-dry with a round brush.

  2. Garnier Fructis Shampoo

    Fructis Shampoo is a hot item at Walmart, massive quantities seem to keep the lower price continuing. Fructis is ideal for fine flyaway hair. It adds firmness to the hair while leaving it super shiny and clean. The 'Sleek and Shine' is the only one to avoid if you have fine, silky child like hair. Each of the other Fructis shampoo products, from Garnier Fructis Color Shield to Garnier Fructis Fortifying shampoos, adds weight, weight that does not appear oily, to your finished hair style, that helps prevent flyaway hair. These products from Garnier will cost about $3.99 to $6.99 depending on the size. Garnier Fructis Shampoo Color Shield is best for color treated fine hair.




  3. Pert Plus

    With Pert Plus expect lush, fluffy, bouncy and a deeper, richer low lights gleam to your hair. Either Pert Plus Medium Conditioning or Pert Plus for Fine or Thin Hair bring fullness to limp, fine hair. Pert is currently owned by the Helen of Troy company since 2006. Helen of Troy brands also include Pur water products, Revlon cosmetics, Dr. Scholls and many others. The Volumnizing and Classic Clean work best on fine hair for obtaining the results described above. It is about $4.00 for 13.5 oz.. This shampoo is best for limp hair.

  4. Olivella

    This olive oil enriched shampoo livens up the body in your hair by fortifying the shine and flexibility of each hair shaft. Sold online and in drugstores it is reasonably priced from $5.99 to $8.99 for an 8.5 oz. bottle. It has rich lather and will last a little longer per ounce than many other shampoos. This is the best shampoo for out of condition, fine, limp hair. Even if you scalp is oily you can shampoo with this olive oil based shampoo to help condition your dull or brittle hair. This will not make your hair or scalp oilier.

  5. Tresemme Dry Shampoo

    Tresemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo relieves you of the chore of shampooing your hair for a couple of days. Simply spray over and under your hair, around the scalp particularly, comb through with a brush or your fingers and wait a couple of minutes before you brush the powder from your hair with a clean hair brush. This will result in clean hair without water. If it is still a bit oily, simply apply a small amount more of the Tresemme Fresh Start and brush out one more time. This is the best waterless shampoo.

If you bought every shampoo here you would not only have a neat stash for your fine, flyaway hair, but you would also only have spent about $32, not counting hair brushes. I love Matrix for amazing, full hair, I would consider it the best for fine, thin hair because I love volumptuous volume. On the other hand, the best shampoo for creating a curly hairstyle that is not only lively with, possibly loose, curls but also long lasting is Pert Plus. This makes these two shampoos the ones to reach for when you want bigger than life hair, for, perhaps, dressing up. The remaining shampoos are ideal for beautiful hair on a more every day basis.
