The 5 Best Conditioners For Fine Hair


When you have fine hair, it’s easy to think you should avoid conditioner since it may feel like it’ll just weigh your hair down and make it feel greasy. This isn’t the case, however, and hydration is important for all hair types – you just need to find the right formula! Look for conditioners that are lightweight and be wary of those that use words like “deep conditioning” or “rich”. It’s also important to only apply it from mid-lengths to ends so that your fine strands don’t get too weighed down or oily. To achieve balanced, shiny locks, even with fine hair, it’s important to do your research and ensure you’re using the right conditioner for your hair type.

Verb Ghost Conditioner

This conditioner is an incredible, lightweight choice to moisturize your fine locks and leave behind a light scent of citrus fruits and woods. The key ingredient – moringa oil – protects, detangles, and hydrates while sunflower seed extract provides UV protection and prevents against dryness, brassiness, and fading. The “Ghost” line of products is perfect for those with fine or thin hair, or those who wash their hair almost daily, resulting in a glossy, easy-to-style finish.

Sachajuan Leave-In Conditioner

Some hair experts suggest that people with really fine or thin hair forgo traditional conditioner and opt for a leave-in conditioner instead, which tend to be hydrating, but also super lightweight. Sachajuan is a hair salon in Stockholm known for hair products that have the most beautiful and immediate effects. This oil-free leave-in option is sprayed onto towel-dried hair to provide moisture while leaving the hair bouncy and scalp healthy as it dries. While it can be used as a styling primer for other hair types, it’s been specifically formulated to act as a conditioner for fine and thin hair in place of any use-in-shower products.

Bumble and Bumble Thickening Volume Conditioner

If you have fine hair, this conditioner is a great option to add moisture to your ends without dragging them down. The product features Emblica technology, which visibly plumps and expands each strand to create a fuller-looking head of hair with movement and shape. As a bonus, Bumble and Bumble is also a certified cruelty-free brand!

Living Proof Full Conditioner

This lightweight conditioner helps fine, flat hair look and behave more like full-bodied hair by adding weightless moisture to each strand. The Full Conditioner is powered by Living Proof’s patented “Healthy Hair Molecule” which detangles without leaving hair heavy and repels dirt and oil to keep hair cleaner, longer. Living Proof is also PETA-Certified cruelty-free, making it a great ethical choice!

Jason Thin-To-Thick Conditioner

This more affordable option is filled with real ingredients like Biotin and Panthenol to thicken and moisturize hair. Plant proteins add bounce and body, as well as strengthen fine hair over time. It’s also cruelty-free, biodegradable, and free of parabens, artificial colors, GMOs, sulfates, and petrolatum, meaning it’s as good for the planet as it is for your hair.
