Like a lot of women, I used to dislike my hair. Although long, it’s also curly, thin, and dry, making for a challenging styling experience. What’s been super helpful has been investing in hair tools and treatments specific for my hair type, and some of the best styling products for fine hair can be found at QVC.

How do I get volume in my fine hair?
There’s nothing more frustrating than dealing with lifeless, flat hair. Rather than putting a hat on, try these two simple tips to get more body:
Tip 1: Use product
Opt for lightweight shampoos and conditioners while washing hair. Ironically, heavier cleansing products can be drying to the scalp, which can trigger an overproduction of oil. This ultimately leads to flatter hair — not the look you’re going for.
If you don’t wash your hair every day, look to volumizing products, like a texturizing spray from Calista. The Stratosphere o2 Texturizer Spray ($29.75, QVC) is a great option. It’s lightweight and meant for dry hair. Along with thickening strands, the spray lifts at the root, giving lots of gorgeous fullness. It also doesn’t leave hair stiff — again, a look no one is probably going for.
Tip 2: Pick the right styling tool
Did you know that brush shape makes a difference when it comes to hair volume? It does, according to hair experts at Calista. An oval shaped brush gets closer to the root, stretching strands (in a good way) and creating more tension as you style.
If you’re not great at using a curling iron, try the Calista Oval Perfecter Heated Volumizing Brush. ($109, QVC). Along with having heat resistant bristles to prevent snagging, the brush head is ideal for smoothing flyaways, while creating extra volume. Its teeth hold strands to the barrels, but there’s no heat on the individual bristles.
How can I make my fine hair smooth and shiny?
For glossy hair that reflects the light, opt for something that adds moisture, like the Aveda Nutriplenish Moisturize Collection ($42, QVC). Both the shampoo and conditioner offer nutrient-based hydration, and the leave-in condition will help soften strands.
Styling products for fine hair from QVC
Calista’s Embellish Definer works like magic when creating full, voluminous hair. Place a pea-sized amount of the lightweight product into your palm and clap — yes, clap — your hands together to make fibrous strands appear. The more you clap, the lighter it becomes. Don’t believe it? Work the product from root to tip, and see the gorgeous texture and density that’s created. But how does it work, you ask? It’s the fibers! They adhere to the hair to create more va-va-va-voom, making it look thicker. It can be used on dry hair, regardless of the length or type, and two cans come in an order.
More than 1.5 million bottles have been sold on QVC, and once you try for yourself, you’ll see why.
Got lifeless strands? Pump them up with the Bumble and bumble. Thickening Starter Kit. The dynamic trio of products has everything needed to rejuvenate hair. On wash day, use the thickening shampoo, followed by the thickening conditioner. Both are moisturizing and work to plump your mane. Create lift with the Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray while styling. Your do will look so good, your friends will think you just came from the salon!
Years of styling tools can leave hair dry like the Sahara. To return them to a lusher state, try something like the Aveda Nutriplenish Moisture Collection. One of the best products for fine hair, each item in the kit adds nutrient-based hydration to strands, helping them to look glossy and strong. Nutriplenish shampoo cleanses the scalp of oil build-up, while the conditioner softens. Use the wide-tooth comb — featuring a Phillip Lim design, FYI — to detangle, and then work in the leave-in conditioner. Along with offering heat protection, it locks moisture in without leaving hair crunchy or heavy.
If getting long lasting volume has always been a struggle, you’re going to love this.
From Calista’s Embellish line, the Texturizer Foam Duo is a great addition to your hair toolkit, especially if fullness is what you crave. The foam has a nutrient mineral based fiber technology formula that penetrates hair. Best of all, the product helps to hold style, while still allowing movement. To use, work through wet or damp hair, and then style as you desire. The upkeep will be minimal until your next wash too, so no worries about constantly retouching with product.
Boar Bristle round brushes are great for thinning hair, and we love this one from Drybar. Its cork handle makes it super easy to grip, even if your hand is wet or filled with product. Also a great choice for ladies with curls, you’ll love the exceptional blowouts this tool can help create.
Heavy shampoos and conditioners can weigh fine locks down, so keep things light when shower time arrives. And fortunately, that’s easy to do if you have the Aveda Botanical Repair Light Collection in your shower caddy.
The shampoo cleanses the scalp of product buildup, while the conditioner detangles to minimize breakage. Both feature plant-derived ingredients to protect and strengthen hair follicles — always a good thing. If you can’t live without your blowdryer, you’ll love the leave-in condition, which softens and protects from heat up to 450 degrees. And the Intensive Strengthening Masque Light builds bonds, softens, and boosts shine. The collection also includes a wrap for your do, as well as a Phillip Lim Hair Towel, and bag for travel!
Many of us can’t do the whole brush and blowdryer thing every day, which is why this Heated Volumizing Brush from Calista is essential! It takes all of the guesswork out of hair styling. Made to be used on dry hair, the oval shape of the brush gets closer to the root to lift each section, creating a fuller looking coif. The styling tool also has Ionic and Ceramic Fusion technology, creating smoothness and shine as you brush. It can even be used as a curling iron. Simply wrap pieces of your hair around the brush, hold for a few seconds, and then pull down. You’ll have gorgeous, fuss-free waves with tons of body to spare.
