1. A silicone-free L’Oreal lamellar treatment that makes good on its promise of shine, shine, shine. This banishes dullness in eight seconds flat, giving your mane all that lustrous bounce but thankfully *none* of the weigh-down. / Via @lorealparis, / Via @lorealparis

Apply this directly to wet hair avoiding the roots, massage it in for eight seconds, then rinse. Effort required = practically zero. And BTW, we also made this product #1 in our roundup of hair products that really work.

Promising review: "i have very thin, dry, and damaged hair due constantly dying it blonde. I’ve tried so many hair products and different types of shampoo and conditioners, and nothing seems to really help my hair. BUT this stuff literally is magic. I’ve used it three times and I haven’t seen my hair look this good (shiny, healthy, hydrated)." —Nikki Minnis

2. An Oribe texturizing spray considered a holy grail amongst the ~thin hair~ community. It's all very simple: Spray this on dry hair for an immediate root lift — and buildable, non-greasy volume will be delivered with just a few spritzes.

Elena Garcia / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "I've tried way too many texture/salt/powder sprays to achieve the tousled look on my fine pixie cut hair and they just did not work. Other brands either left me with dried out, gummy, sticky hair or did absolutely nothing, zero, nada! So in the throes of total desperation I paid the outrageous price for this can. I really didn't think it was worth all the hype until I used it. Let me just say, it is worth the price. This gives a great tousled look yet leaves your hair feeling like there is nothing there! Not sticky, gummy, or drying but soft, full of texture, movement, body, and IT DOES'T TAKE A LOT TO ACHIEVE THIS [thanks to the Oribe gods for that]." —DonnaM

3. Sexy Hair volumizing hairspray so you can run your fingers through your hair (*cue passage from Nicholas Sparks novel*) with confidence. This provides ultimate hold without making your mane feel stiff, meaning you won't hear a crunch whenever you adjust a bang. / Via @sexyhair

Promising review: "This is the best hairspray if you have fine hair that you style to add volume. This hairspray holds all day, but feels natural and isn't noticeable. I've tried them all and have spent lots of money on many very high-end hairsprays, but this is by far the best I've ever found." —Rhonda C.

Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in two sizes and three scents).

4. A Remington wand capable of doing the Impossible (yes, Impossible with a capital "I"). This miracle tool allows even the finest, straightest of manes to hold the most voluminous beach waves: Just wrap your hair around the barrel, wait a few seconds, and you're done. Minimal effort required. Several tears shed.

AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60-second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you'll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again. The barrel also comes in 1-inch and 1.5-inch sizes, heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit (and can be adjusted), and has a ceramic coating for even heat distribution.

SIDE NOTE: I have been using the same Remington wand for about six (maybe seven) years and it is truly a gift from above. For reference, I have super straight, thin hair that usually can't ever hold a curl, but this helps me achieve a full head of beach waves in under 15 minutes.

Promising review: "I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it's lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." —madison

Get it from Amazon for $18.89+ (available in two barrel sizes).

5. A Nexxus clarifying shampoo because that 10 pounds of dry shampoo you used two days ago is still trapped in your roots. Trust me. It didn't exactly run away. This anti-residue wash deep cleans build-up that would otherwise lead to lack of body, excessive grease, and *gulp* stringiness.


This non-irritating shampoo should be used once a week (using it too much may make your hair overly dry) and is gentle enough to use on any hair type, including color-treated manes. Pair it with the matching conditioner for some added nourishment.

Promising review: "Wow…this product brought my hair back to life! My hair was so greasy from wax buildup, even after just washing, and this shampoo after ONE use has gotten rid of that buildup completely! My hair feels and looks great. I have blonde hair and have been coloring it for years, and this shampoo worked great for it. It does leave your hair a bit dry but once I put in a leave-in conditioner, the dryness went away. I highly recommend this product. What a great product for an even better price!" –Amazon Customer

Get the shampoo for $14.49 and the conditioner for $14.99, both on Amazon.


6. An Herbal Essences volume shampoo capable of delighting your tresses *and* nose thanks to the invigorating scent of mint and citrus. Not only does a blend of essential antioxidants, aloe, and sea kelp promote hair health and body, but it's also free of icky dyes, parabens, and aluminum. / Via @herbalessences

Promising review: "I love this shampoo. It smells amazing and leaves my baby-fine hair feeling lightweight and even adds a little lift at the roots!" —Joy

Get it from Target for $5.99.

7. An Elizavecca collagen protein treatment, because our ends have more split than a banana sundae. This tames frizzy hair and delivers ultimate smoothness — all without weighing it down. Your tresses will look as if they've never even *heard* of hot tools and hair dye.

Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

Simply shampoo as per usual, leave this mask on for up to 15 minutes, then rinse.

Promising review: "This is a must-have and the hype is all true. They have found the holy grail of combinations to eradicate frizzy hair without weighing your hair down, which makes it greasy. It’s a little bottle of magic, it doesn’t even take much, and it only takes a dime-sized amount for my hair." —Rachel Eckols

Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

8. An ammonia- and peroxide-free L'Oreal Paris temporary spray for covering grays between salon visits. Consider this the concealer of your haircare routine, using a lightweight formula (READ: non-greasy) to hide silver strands with no smudging or sticky residue required. We love quick fixes to annoying problems.

Promising review: "This is the best stuff ever. EVER. EVER! I can spray away gray roots in no time. Keeps your hair looking great between color touch-ups. Works well to add depth and coverage to thinning hair. I can go out in the rain and it doesn't wash off or run down my face. It doesn't rub off on pillow cases. When I shampoo my hair, it releases and is gone with the bubbles." —Edna Streit

Get it from Amazon for $4.50+ (available in 11 shades and in a duo-pack).

9. Kitsch transparent coils so you can achieve that quick updo without wrapping a single hair tie around your thin ponytail a minimum of, oh, 10 times to ensure a strong hold. This ouch-less design won't tug at your hair and doesn't leave any dents behind, either.


Promising review: "I love these hair ties! They are stretchy but also shrink back down to their normal size if you just place them in hot water. They do not pull on your hair nor rip out any strands when you take it out. They stay put all day long! I have very thin hair and I wrap these around twice (because I like a looser pony) and they are just simply amazing. Because I have thinner hair, it also makes my pony look fuller as I don't wear it tight so the base of the pony is more spread out." —Keli.Sharma

10. An R+Co paste with all the benefits of your favorite dry shampoo (grease = a true arch nemesis), but all the benefits of a styling paste!? It's truly ludicrous how well this works at tackling two problems: absorbing oil whilst adding texture.

Megan Paolone / BuzzFeed

This product takes some fab ingredients: We're talking volcanic ash, coconut oil, zeolite, sunflower seed extract, and argain oil.

Promising review: "Where has this been all my life? I have tried multiple dry shampoos and none of them have worked. A little but of this goes a long way and makes a huge difference in my fine hair, which usually looks greasy by the end of the day. This stuff is the best." —MDKH

11. A Sun Bum leave-in spray that enlists the hydrating benefits of coconut and sunflower seed oil to give hair what it needs this right this second: MOISTURE. Not only will this counteract the drying effects of sun and chlorine, but it even works as a lightweight de-tangler to help your brush glide right through each thin strand.


Psst, this spray is also cruelty-free, gluten-free, and vegan.

Promising review: "I have never written a review for any product before, but I loved this leave-in spray so much that I just had to. I have long, blonde, thin, curly hair so of course it is frizzy and gets damaged easily. I have tried a million leave-in sprays and creams (most much more pricey than this one) and nothing compares. I sprayed this into my hair when it was damp and was immediately impressed with how easily I could comb through my hair. The product seriously reduced frizz and left me with soft, healthy looking ringlets (I can't get over how soft my hair is!)." —Hayley

Get it from Amazon for $13.29.


12. A teasing brush with tourmaline-enhanced nylon bristles to pump up the volume and truly thicken each strand of hair. A bonus worth noting: The tapered handle makes fixing (or switching) your part into a seamless process.,

Promising review: "Where has this been all my life and how did I not know about teasing brushes? I have never been able to get a good tease using a rat tail comb, so thought I would try this and WOW. I have fairly fine hair and I am amazed at how well this works to give me volume. The brush is well made with no loose bristles, and it's just the right width for my bangs." —Judi W

Get it from Amazon for $9.96 (available in four colors and three styles).

13. A Hair Dance powder dry shampoo especially great at vacuuming up grease and adding body sans any leftover chalky white residue. Pro tip: If you add some into your roots before bed, you'll wake up with a completely refreshed scalp that looks like it was shampooed five minutes ago ( opposed to five days ago).

This vegan and cruelty-free dry shampoo doesn't contain any talc, parabens, or baking soda (hooray).

A personal note: As someone with thin, greasy, flat hair, I can confidently say that powder dry shampoos are so much better than aerosol ones. Like, they actually make your hair look freshly washed.

Promising review: "My hair is ALWAYS oily at the roots and aerosol cans of dry shampoo make my hair stiff, but this stuff...this stuff is amazing! Adds volume, doesn't completely dry out my hair, and does not leave residue or build- up (I have black hair so this is very important). Also, my hair smells super fresh after using it. Would give more stars if I could!" —Gabriela

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in two sizes and scents).


14. A Moroccanoil foam mousse that is ~step one~ on your quest for more defined curls. This lightweight formula enlists the help of argan oil (v. rich in antioxidants) to fight frizz, separate curls, and add bounce. And it won't weigh down your hair! Volume and locks that would make Shirley Temple jealous are now yours for the taking.

Ignacia Fulcher / Amazon, Amazon

Promising review: "Love this mousse! I have lots of fine, curly hair. This product is lightweight yet strong enough to plump up my curls without weighing down each fine hair. My girlfriend gave it to me because she didn't like it (she has fuller, thicker curly hair)." —Chet

Get it from Amazon for $28.50.

15. A Kenra finishing spray for a mega dose of volume, shine, and hold. Feel confident knowing that the hour-long session you had straightening your humidity-hating hair this a.m. won’t be in vain: This stuff truly holds every fine strand and flyaway in place. / Via @kenraprofessional

This spray also won't flake, dries quickly, and won't make your hair look stiff.

Promising review: "I have fine and thin hair and this is the best hairspray I've ever used. With it, my hair doesn't look rigid but it still stays put. This is more expensive than products I've used before but it's worth every penny." —bookreader

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three sizes).

16. A John Frieda hot air brush, because an average straightener usually takes ALL the volume out of your roots (cc: pin-straight styles reminiscent of Jersey Shore days). This easy-to-use tool will give you a salon-quality blowout that is shockingly easy to achieve., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

This hot brush is designed to look exactly like a lightweight round brush, except this one is fancy and emits even heat! It's also designed with ionic technology to increase shine and prevent frizz.

Promising review: "I am no professional hair stylist, nor do I have time to do my hair everyday (I'm a mommy of two) but I must say that this brush makes getting ready so much easier. It's fairly simple to use. I like my hair to have a lot of volume (I have thin hair) and my layers to show (please excuse my dead ends), so that look is easy to achieve with this tool. This adds lot of volume and adds a nice wave to the end of your hair. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a nice, easy blowout!" —L

17. An eco-friendly Ethique shampoo bar that adds a ton of body to even the finest of tresses *and* just one bar equals three bottles of liquid shampoo. Volume combined with money saved and avoided plastic = my definition of bliss.


This pH-balanced bar uses orange, cinnamon, ginger, and salt for bouncy hair.

Promising review: "I have been using this frizz wrangler shampoo bar for a month now and I am amazed by it! First of all, it cleans my hair well — so well that I can now go three days between washing! (With other shampoos, my hair would be greasy and flat by day two.) It is so light, doesn’t weigh my hair down, lathers well, and rinses clean. It’s important to let the bar dry out completely in between uses so it doesn’t crumble and disintegrate." —P. Bin

Get it from Amazon for $12.94 (available in 13 scents).

18. An Amika straightening brush designed with impressive iRed technology so heat can more rapidly penetrate your hair. In English? This thing reduces straightening time by up to half (#bless), ion projectors and a ceramic base promise smoothness and shine, plus it doesn't give that "pin-straight" effect that basically ruins your chance at volume and body.

Hannah Loewentheil / BuzzFeed

Promising review: "The Amika brush leaves my hair smooth and silky, but it still had some volume, which I like compared to the pin-straight results I get from my straightening iron. Also, the Amika felt much more gentle on my hair than my straightening iron, which can sometimes feel like it's burning my hair. All in all, I recommend it for people who want to straighten their hair while still maintaining volume, are searching for a new daily straightening appliance that holds up to its promises, and people who don't mind the price tag." — Hannah Loewentheil, BuzzFeed writer

Get it from Sephora for $98.

19. An Olaplex bonding oil that uses green tea and grape seed oil to give your hair some lightweight hydration while *also* providing protection against the ☀️. This, my friends, is like sunscreen for your haircare routine.


Promising review: "The best oil I’ve ever used for my hair!! Light weight, no frizz, shinny hair. You only need a small amount to put into damp or dry hair. I use it for both steps to give me maximum results. I highly recommend for ALL hair types." –makeupfreak12

20. A Sexy Hair texturizing powder you dab into your roots, spread through to the end, and bam! You've got body. This instantly liquifies to provide both fullness and slight tackiness, the latter of which makes your hot tool (and style staying power) so much more effective.,

Promising review: "Background details: I have fine, but pretty dense hair that tends to pull flat at the crown and absorbs oil and moisture like a sponge. It has a slight wave and tends to frizz, so even air drying is out of the question. It also usually refuses to hold a style, slips easily out of most clips and fasteners, and collapses if curled. Hairspray won't hold it, gel makes it crackly, and if I try to wear it down, it just slithers into my face and picks up oil from my skin. And it's humid as all get-out here. Ugh. I used this on my roots (at the crown) of day two hair with a scant spritz of dry shampoo at the temples, and at the end of the day, I've still got volume and texture, and my style (down, not pulled back) actually stayed in place. My hair doesn't look greasy or limp, and I don't feel totally disgusting. I'm sold and will absolutely purchase this again!" —Heather

21. An Aveda daily treatment with a 98% naturally-derived blend that works to combat four types of damage (environmental, chemical, physical, and heat), all while reducing breakage by up to 90% in about a week. And we all know that breakage = not easy to conceal when you have thin hair that enjoys displaying flyaways for fun. / Via @aveda

This cruelty-free formula includes quinoa protein to strengthen hair and make it longer, while macadamia conditioning oil promotes a smoother, more nourished mane free of split-ends and flyaways.

Promising review: "Can’t say enough good things about it. Most leave-in moisturizers are heavy and make your hair either flat or oily, but this stuff is so light that you wouldn't know it was applied if your hair didn't turn so wickedly soft. It works equally well with air dried or blow dried hair; I use a dime-sized amount on my ends AFTER showering/washing hair and brushing through, then I'll wrap hair in a towel and wait for about10 minutes. This makes your hair super soft and literally fixes split-ends." —Reviewer64

Get it from Nordstrom for $34+ (available in two sizes).


22. A Herstyler repair serum infused with argan oil, vitamin e, and aloe vera to tame frizz with a vengeance. It's also blissfuly lightweight, meaning it won't weigh down your mane *or* make it look like you're wearing a vat of grease.

Promising review: "My hair is wild. You throw in some humidity or a beach day and it's on. I look like I crawled out of a cave. My hair is super thin and brittle, and a little but of this product goes a long way for me. I only put on the ends of my hair and I have been told by several people that my hair looks healthier... this is after I desperately fish for compliments." —Sara

Get it from Amazon for $11.88+ (available in multipacks).

23. A Verb volume spray that uses polymer seed extract, patented copolymer, quinoa protein, and soy protein to deliver strength and volume for a commercial-worthy mane; all you'll have to do is, well, spritz your hair. *patiently waits for royalty check*


Promising review: "This is the best volumizing spray I've ever used. I use this all over my roots but especially in my wet bangs before I blow dry out a nasty cowlick. It gives me some hold and control but is not sticky. It is not a spray gel. It's hard to describe. It goes on like water, feels like water and smells like water. But it works like MAGIC. I have use this for a few years and it is the best." –MMF

Get it from Amazon for $18.


24. A Playa textured spray so you can bring beach benefits to your haircare routine without having to, well, go to the beach. This blend of sea salt and chia seed extract easily delivers that sought after "tousled but voluminous" look — the kind that otherwise takes a ton of tears, time, and hot tool use.


Promising review: "This spray is the only way I can wear my straight, fine hair down without using hot tools. I spray my hair (slightly damp or dry), twist into two buns, spray again, and leave the buns in while I do my makeup (15-30 minutes). Then I take the buns out and give my hair one more spritz. It gives great texture, a bit of volume, and soft wave. I’ve tried other similar products, but this one is by far my favorite." —Bruin2015

Get it from Sephora for $24.

25. A refreshing OGX treatment that uses tea tree leaf oil, peppermint, and witch hazel extracts to hit the reset button on greasy roots (aka, the natural response to an overly dry scalp). TL;DR: this treats your scalp to a ~facial~ that will strengthen your mane and allow styling products to take more effectively.


This sulfate-free formula relieves dry, itchy scalps that lead to an excess of oil production — something especially frustrating for anyone with thin hair.

Promising review: "The last time I got my hair cut, the stylish told me my scalp seemed a little dry and suggested getting a scalp treatment. I found this product and liked the price! I use it about one or two times a week and it seems to be working. I also have thin/fine hair and it doesn't make my roots look super gross, which is always a bonus!" —I Am A Human

Get it from Amazon for $6.97.

26. A deep clean shampoo brush to stimulate circulation via silicone massage, which contributes to speedier hair growth and prevents excess oil build-up. If your thin hair has grown one centimeter since your 2-inch trim last year (I know that feeling well), consider this the shower staple you didn't know you needed.

Because it stimulates your scalp and improves circulation, this nifty little tool is also a beast at helping with hair growth (see proof above!).

Promising review: "I have been using this for about three weeks now and I LOVE it. It feels amazing! I haven't changed my shampoo or anything, but my hair definitely has more my roots are standing up or something! I don't know exactly what is happening, but I am all for it." —Lsn1986

27. A boar bristle brush designed to evenly distribute all 👏 that 👏 oil 👏 from root to tip because oil at your roots = super flat hair. I'm pretty sure that any product capable of detangling and volumizing at the same time should be investigated for sorcery.

Psst, this also comes with a small wooden comb all bundled up into an adorable bag perfect for gifting (to yourself).

Promising review: "This is just what I was looking for. This doesn't pull out my hair when hitting a knot and it is pain-free, which makes my 6-year-old love this brush as well. My hair is shiner, has less split-ends, and more volume since using this brush." —grandmother

Get it from Amazon for $23.99.


28. A got2b bodifying mousse formulated with hair-healthy ingredients for adding elasticity, volume, and strength. In English? It'll help your "I spent 45 minutes with a hot tool in my hands" style hold all day, whether that style involves tight ringlets or stick-straight strands.


Promising review: "I have fine, straight, somewhat thin hair. I put a big handle of this in my wet hair, brush out the tangles with a pick, then bend over and scrunch my hair. It looks like I have a lot more hair that's a bit curly and wavy. It stays that way for at least 5–6 days, as I only need to shampoo every 5–6 days." –GSGrandma

30. A WetBrush with OmniFlex technology, an ingenious design that conforms to your scalp to painlessly detangle your 'do. This slides through hair in a jiffy, saving you a ton of post-shower styling time — *and* it won't yank out what little hair you have. / Via @thewetbrush, / Via @thewetbrush

Promising review: "I am seriously in love with this hair brush! As someone with crazy curly hair, I always dread the day that I wash, brush, and style my hair. Brushing my hair alone used to require a shower comb, Tangle Teezer, wet brush, liberal amounts of conditioning products, 45 minutes, and lots of frustration. I'll be honest — when I got this brush in my hand, I laughed at it. It looked very flimsy and my hair has been known to snap brushes in half. When I got around to using this brush come wash day, I was in for a big surprise. Not only did this brush not break in my hair, but it worked! I could now easily put my cleansing conditioner in my hair, start brushing, and have my hair knot-free and brushed out in about six minutes total. Do not underestimate this brush till you try it because it has single-handedly saved my hair and my sanity." —Brit

This diffuser has a 1.8-inch diameter, meaning it'll attach perfectly to ~most~ hairdryers.

Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE this diffuser! This is THE BEST diffuser I have ever used. I have super thick, long, naturally curly hair and not only does this diffuser dry my hair super fast, it honestly gives my hair volume and bounce. And amazingly, when I use this instead of air-drying, my curls are not frizzy!" —Georgia

34. Mini hair pins to give you the ballerina bun of your pirouette-packed dreams. Just one of these little pins can do the work of up to *20* hair pins, ridding the need of those excessive random pins that would otherwise just dig into your scalp. (Plus, it's a ~fancy updo~ that implies real effort and not a way to hide the fact that you, for example, have not washed your hair in days.)

How does it work? Just gather your hair, pull it into a super tight bun, spin the pins into place, and BAM! You've got yourself the perfect bun.

Promising review: "I'm a nursing student and have to wear my hair in a bun every day. I've tried all the bun makers, watched YouTube videos, and spend way too much time on getting my hair into a bun. I was able to make a pretty bun that was secure in under 30 seconds. I thought it was a fluke so I did it again, and then again. I just ordered two more packs because I know if I lose one of these, I'd have to tear the house down looking for it. I have hair to my mid back, and three of these worked perfectly for me. If I can get my hair in bun in under 30 seconds, trust me...anyone can." —Tina

35. A set of L’Oréal Paris sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner that strengthens and bonds hair (particularly for anyone with color-treated locks). This fortifies your hair and keeps it nice and happy so it’ll continue to grow without breaking or thinning.


Promising review: “I have tried a bonding shampoo and conditioner before, but didn't like the cost. I saw this on Amazon, and decided to give it a try. I have been happy with the EverPure line, so I was pretty hopeful. But this absolutely exceeds my expectations. I bought the shampoo and conditioner set, and I have already repurchased. Using it one day, I see some difference. But when I use it two or three days in a row, oh my gosh, it's like I have new hair. I color my hair at home (yep, box dye) on a regular basis and have been for many years. It stays in pretty good shape, but I think most of us wish for shinier, healthier looking hair. This did it for me. I never use it more than three days in a row, I'm afraid to overload my hair with too much protein, but maybe it wouldn't be a problem. The smell is nothing special, not bad, not great, just there. The plastic they make the tubes from is a little too hard, in my opinion, and when you start to get low, it gets hard to get the product out, but I manage. And it's totally worth the bother. Love it, recommend it, try it!" –Annette

36. A bottle of 100% cold-pressed castor oil to intensely nourish your hair and stimulate growth. It also works great for lashes, brows, and skin, so it’s safe to say this could revolutionize your entire self-care routine., Amazon

Promising review: “​​I’ve been using this since I received it in early February on my hairline and it’s worked better than imagined. In three to four weeks I saw new hair growth in areas I was certain hair could not grow back. It has made the hair that was thinning grow thicker and fuller. I have also been using this on a skin condition I’ve had for many years. That area of skin was bumpy and seemed to keep growing. Within the first three weeks of constant use, the growth receded and my skin flattened out and started to heal. I will need to get this condition evaluated by a doctor, I’m not saying this product is a cure-all but it has helped more than anything else natural that I’ve tried. This is a great product for hair and skin and definitely worth a shot.” –crazy

Promising review: "Amazing product! The best I have tried this far! Shampoo and conditioner have spirulina agent in it which is very good for regeneration and growth of anything, in this case — hair. I absolutely love the smell this product leaves - not overpowering and modern, if I may say. The texture of shampoo and conditioner is high quality. This set is for any type of hair and fits me just great! After drying, I can feel my hair is not overworked with chemicals and doesn’t feel dry or freeze at all!!! It leaves my hair shined and super soft!! I am really impressed and this is my fav product so far and I decline to use anything else." –Luba
