Fine or thin hair: the step-by-step guide to volume


At the salon or at home, learn our five professional “recipes” for adding volume and hydration to your hair, obtaining a more vital and full look

In most cases, fine hair is a physiological condition: the diameter of the hair fibre is an essentially genetic factor, like colour or thickness. Even if healthy, however, fine hair can be more delicate and, as such, require specific treatments. Discover the tips of the Davines hairdressers for more voluminous hair that looks full of life.

1) Ask for a consultation at the salon to find out why your hair is fine

Davines Salons
Consultation with a hairdresser is essential if you’d like to understand whether your hair is naturally fine, or if it became thinner because of the stress caused, for example, by a chemical treatment that damaged its cuticles. 

As the first step, we recommend that you book an appointment at your trusted Davines salon and ask for advice. The hairdresser will analyse the hair and will ask you a series of questions that will help him/her decide on the perfect “volume recipe” for you.

2) Try a professional replumping treatment for fine hair

At the salon, you can treat yourself to a professional service especially conceived for fine hair that lacks volume. 

After washing your hair with the elasticising Replumping Shampoo and Conditioner, your hairdresser will apply the Replumping Hair Filler Superactive, distributing it with a revitalising massageand with a comb. 

The in-salon replumping treatment will not just increase your hair’s volume, but will also lift your spirits! The products of the Replumping line, in fact, have a unique scent: citrusy head notes, with orange and lemon blossom; a floral rose, jasmine and ylang ylang heart; and, to top it all off, patchouli base notes.

Identity profile of Replumping Filler Superactive

This product is meant to be applied after washing, and doesn’t need rinsing. Thanks to its active ingredients, it compacts, tones and plumps up the hair’s structure, also protecting it from humidity. The Replumping Hair Filler Superactive is a light emulsion; its ease of use makes it the ideal treatment for use both at the salon and at home. The superactive is enriched with the Fortifying Botanical Shield and withhyaluronic acid: a superhero ingredient, known for its powerful hydrating effect and for its ability to protect from environmental stressors.

3) Choose the right cut to add volume to fine hair

Short Cut for fine hair

Without going as far as modifying the hair’s structure, the right cut and style can do a lot when it comes to adding volume. For example, you can opt for a layered but full cut, such as a long, messy bob, like the one worn by Bella in the last collection by Tom Connell. 

If you’re feeling brave, read our article here and go for a short cut to add volume. In any case, remember to ask your hairdresser for advice; he/she will know how to best guide your choices.

4) Professional products for taking care of fine hair at home

To always maintain your hair’s volume and vitality, remember to continue the treatment at home with specific products. For example, the magical Naturaltech Replumping trio!


Replumping Shampoo

Elasticising shampoo for hair that lacks tone, hydration and elasticity. In the Replumping shampoo you’ll find the phytoceutical of plum, a certified organic ingredient of Italian origin, rich in polyphenols and flavonoids that, among other things, act as anti-oxidants to fight free radicals. 


Replumping Conditioner

Remember to apply it to the hair’s lengths and ends, every time you wash it. Let it do its thing for a few minutes and then comb you hair, so that the product is distributed evenly. Rinse carefully and make sure not to leave any residues, because they could weigh the hair down, which is exactly what not to do when your hair is fine.

Replumping Leave-on

After rinsing, towel the hair dry and apply the Replumping Hair Filler Superactive. The filler is a leave-on product, that also prepares the hair for drying: thanks to the Fortifying Botanical Shield, it forms a film on the hair, protecting it and keeping it safe from anything that may harm it and make it even thinner.
