My hair is naturally fine anyway but has been thinning over the last few years. I'm constantly on the lookout for products that make it look fuller and am coming to the end of my current lot. Has anyone found anything really effective? Thanks

Not a shampoo or conditioner, but this styling mouse is absolutely unbelievable for my fine hair. Smells divine too. Do dry your hair upside down.

Hi, Please read my post on thinning hair, I suffered from it after pregnancy and tried many treatments.

Kerastase volumising shampoo and conditioner.
Tigi Motor Mouth styling product.
Babyliss Big Hair styler.
All these together have made a big difference to my fine hair: even looks swishy!

Kerastase brand isn't so great for fine hair, L'oreal is better (both produced by L'oreal). Still both aren't that great ingredient wise so if you want something than really helps then go for phyto. If you struggle to comb your hair through after shampooing (normally the case with fine hair) then try philip kingsley volume conditioner is amazing for that. But phyto treatment and shampoo for thinning hair are only ones that restored my hair and made it thicker.

Thanks. A few things to try. I think that the salon near me sticks milkshake products. I may take a stroll up when it's open.

Anything with silicones in will Mack thinness at first and then make it worse over a period of time.
I've stopped using shampoo completely and mine had never looked thicker, there is a pain barrier of a couple of weeks though. You have to throughly wash your hair, deep condition it then just rinse it through with conditioner going forward. Mine looks like I'm 20 again (from behind, it's fine nothing for my face obviously)

The Living Proof thickening shampoo is very good. And smells divine!

Nothing with silicones.

My mother's hair was thinning as well. She uses something with Castor oil.

Redken Cleansing Cream is pretty good.
