fine hair does well with protein so look into the "protein-craving" section of this site... you'll find lots of protein-rich conditioners. you should also be doing PTs if you're not already. I like the gelatin PT (easy, cheap, accessible) and the Spiral Solutions PT.
there's a few fine, normal, normal threads... you're welcome to look at my siggy.
I low-poo 3x a week, use a rinse-out conditioner with protein (sometimes I add Colorful Neutral Protein Filler to it for an extra protein kick). I do a lot of conditioner only styling with my LIs. I've also gotten good results from jellys like SS CEJ and flax seed gel, as well as hard hold gels. I used to do extra virgin coconut oil DTs but now find I don't need as many. Regular protein treatments (1x a week ideally) have significantly improved my hair.
I'm still experimenting in terms of styling, but I have a good handle on proper haircare and my hair is in really good shape. Healthy hair is a necessary foundation for having it "look good" IMO. The rest is playing with what result different stylers can give you, and what your preferences are.
Hope this helps! Feel free to browse my siggy since we have the same properties.
