19 Best Natural Hair Products For Fine Hair!
So, what is fine hair?
There are several hair typing systems that help us better understand our hair.
There can be two naturals with very similar curl pattern but still might have a very different head of hair, simply because of the width of their strands.
Natural hair varies according to curl patterns, porosity, and width.
Natural air width is the average diameter of one’s strands. There are generally three types of hair widths: fine, medium, and coarse.
The term “fine hair” refers to the natural hair that has a small circumference or that has a small diameter. Fine hair is mainly dependent on your genetics, and all hair types regardless of their curl pattern can have fine hair.
Is fine hair the same as thin hair?
No, fine hair is not necessarily thin natural hair. The term “thin” hair refers to hair density and not hair width. Thin hair means that one has few hair follicles per square inch. A fine-haired natural can have a full mane consisting of strands that are small in diameter.
What are the characteristics of fine hair?
Fine hair might appear very full when washed and air-dried but falls flat and limp when straightened or blow-dried.
Fine hair is easily weighed down by heavy oils, creams, and butters.
Fine hair is fragile and easily prone to breakage when overmanipulated.
Fine hair takes easily to color or dye.
Fine hair usually doesn’t hold a hairstyle too well.
What oils work best for fine hair?
As fine hair tends to get weighed down by-products, you’d be better off using products that are quickly absorbed into the strand and that do not leave a heavy coating. Argan oil, almond oil, and jojoba oil do not leave a greasy residue our fine strands.
Products For Cleansing Fine Natural Hair
Carol’s Daughter Rhassoul Clay Shampoo and Conditioner
As I’ve gotten older, my scalp has gotten oilier and more prone to itching. The Rhassoul Clay line from Carol’s Daughter helps absorb oil from my scalp without stripping my hair shaft.
Silicone Shampoo Brush
My stylist used this on me the last time I got a haircut and I am in LOVE. It’s a mini massage for my scalp, and the large, spread out silicone bristles are soft and don’t catch in my fine curly strands.
Ouidad VitaCurl Clear and Gentle Shampoo
I just got balayage highlights in my hair, and I am even more conscious of using products that are too harsh for my fine curls now that my hair is also color treated. This Ouidad shampoo is a very mild clarifying shampoo, using jojoba oil to make sure fine and color treated hair stays strong while giving your scalp a nice, tingly clean feeling.
Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV rinses are a good thing for fine-haired curlies to work into their normal routine. Make your own by combining equal parts vinegar and water and rinsing hair thoroughly before conditioning. It’s a very gentle way to cleanse your scalp and restore pH to delicate strands.
SheaMoisture Fruit Infused Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo and Crème Rinse
I used to never use SheaMoisture products because their original hair milk was way too heavy for my hair, but this duo is made especially with fine-haired folks in mind. It’s weightless, does a good job and smells awesome.
Products For Styling Fine Natural Hair
Carol’s Daughter Pracaxi Nectar Style Control Gel
This has been my go-to styling gel for the summer months when my scalp is sweatier and oilier than usual. It’s super lightweight, has a nice medium hold that maintains definition without sacrificing volume and smells really good. Warning: it is very water-soluble, which is great for cleansing, but be careful that your hair isn’t too wet when applying.
Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft Curls
Miss Jessie’s is my holy grail styling product, hands down. It’s the perfect gel: sticky enough to provide hold but not so heavy your hair gets weighed down, with zero crunch.
Kevin Murphy Motion Lotion
If you want to splurge, Kevin Murphy’s Motion Lotion is an excellent way to blow your way through your stockpile of birthday Amazon gift cards. If you want a bit more hold, mix it with a tiny bit of your favorite gel and scrunch.
Mielle Organics Styling Gel Honey and Ginger
If you have 3c fine hair, a little goes a long way with this stuff, which means this big bottle will last you a long time!

Products For Repairing Fine Natural Hair
Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Restoring Hair Mask

To make this hair mask work for me, I use it on my dry hair, sit under the dryer for about 10 minutes, and then shampoo it out. Reversing the package instructions ensures that I get the benefits of the repairing ingredients without leaving the heavy oils on my hair.
SheaMoisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Treatment

Products For Drying
Alligator Hair Clips
Your natural hair will always look best when You can give your fine hair a hand and lift your roots with alligator clips.
It is actually best to use the cheap plastic clips over the metal clips—metal gets too hot!
I know reviews on this have been mixed, but this works great on fine natural hair. It dries the roots really quickly without having to blast the weaker, drier parts of my hair with lots of unnecessary heat.
Softhood Hair Dryer Attachment
If you’ve never used one of these before, yes you will feel super silly the first couple of times: but it’s worth it! Your natural hair dries evenly, and you can use a lower heat setting to dry your hair faster.
