Curly or wavy hair with fine texture is more prone to breakage, tends to have little volume and to become heavier with the use of a variety of products during Wash Day. For this reason, those with this type of curly hair know that it is essential to choose specific products with lighter formulations designed specifically for this hair texture.

In the following article, we will explore the roots of the problem and focus on the most effective remedies for managing curly and fine hair with little volume.


Often the causes are mainly due to genetic factors: the thinness of the texture depends on the cortical structure of the hair, which is less dense and smaller in size. This characteristic makes the hair less compact and more prone to increased brittleness and susceptibility to breakage.

In addition to genetic aspects, the weakness of hair and its tendency to break may be influenced by several factors related to psychophysical balance, which is also particularly impacting the health of one’s hair.

Another element that should not be underestimated is the impact of various external agents, (saltiness, chlorine, smog, etc.) which, over time, contribute to weakening the hair structure.

The genetic component plays a key role in this condition, but there are numerous remedies to strengthen hair structure. From the proper Curly Routine to the styling techniques employed, there are several practices that can help improve the structure and appearance of fine curly hair.

To achieve optimal results, it is essential to first identify the best cut for your hair.

In fact, fine curly hair with little volume needs a specific cut that can enhance it and ensure volumetric and uniform harmony. For this reason, it is a good idea to always turn to professionals in the field who can carefully evaluate the specific problems and propose cuts that can improve the overall appearance of hair with limited volume.

Another key best practice for managing fragile, low volume hair is to choose the right products for your Wash Day.

To maintain the necessary hydration and obtain the most appropriate volume proportion, it is important to choose the correct combination of products: a volumizing shampoo, a restructuring mask for the lengths and a light mousse for styling, so as not to weigh them down.

Among the different styling techniques, we do not recommend using Plopping: it tends to flatten the roots too much. Better to opt for Scrunching.

Scrunching, performed by curling the hair in the palm of your hand and squeezing it toward the skin, is used to encourage the formation of waves or curls by giving definition.

Once styling is finished, it’s time to move on to blow-drying. If you want a volumizing effect, follow these tips:

  1. Apply the clips at the roots to lift them.
  2. Use the blow dryer at moderate temperature and speed.
  3. Dry the roots first and then the lengths by gathering them in the diffuser.
  4. Never touch the hair with your hands while drying.
  5. Remove the clips.
  6. Break the cast only when the hair is 100 percent dry.
  7. Massage the roots to accentuate volume.

Finish drying with a few seconds of cold air: it will help secure the styling.
