i have fine, wavy hair. It will look good after a hair cut for about 2 weeks, and then it gets flat and feathery. Nothing I do helps; I've tried products, different hair styles, nothing works. Sometimes I get so frustrated I just start to cry. I feel like my hair is the one thing that really ruins my image and it has bothered me for YEARS. I don't want to talk to a doctor, because I know what the answer will be: there's no medication that makes hair thicker. Also, most doctors don't consider "fine hair" to be a medical issue, but it seriously effects my self-image and emotional well-being. If any of you girls have fine hair, or any suggestions for dealing with it, please help me. Thanks.

There are professional products that will literally thicken your hair now. Nioxin is a medicated type shampoo almost, used a lot by women with thinning hair to help replace the hair they've lost. And Halo and Paul Mitchell both make Thicken Up type hair products, one of which I use religously. I also use a Joico Whip root lifter on my hair, and blow dry upside down. It literally leaves the root of my hair sticking straight up and with tons of volume.
But be careful, too. The downside to this is that some products will thicken your hair by opening the follicle, which will leave it dry.0
