Whether you’re experiencing post-partum hair loss, stress-induced thinning or inherited it from your parents, fine hair comes with a unique set of challenges. Truth be told, I’m grateful to bypass it all as someone with thick hair (though I still have plenty setbacks to deal with). From stringy strands that won’t stop sticking together to matted helmet hair from just a spritz of water or hairspray–the struggle can get real and stay that way if you don’t get strategic about your styling arsenal. Though finding what works will take some trial-and-error, there are a few traits all of the best fine hair products have in common.

According to Garnier Consulting Celebrity Hairstylist Ashley Streicher, you should be aiming for products that have little weigh-down. In other words, you shouldn’t be slathering on oils or heavy butters. “Light spray detanglers are great, such as Garnier’s Pure Clean Air Dry + Detangler spray ($4.94), as well as lighter shampoos and conditioners like a volume cleanser and conditioner,” she says. And like she added, don’t be afraid to experiment with volumizing products whether your hair is dry or wet. Texturizers, root-lifters and mousse usually fall into this category. With that being said, here are 13 well-reviewed options that enough lift without going completely overboard.
