Little girl

Dear Ouidad:

I have fine 3a/b hair. It’s just getting long, not quite half way down my back. My hair tends to have lots of volume, however it gets weighed down with too much product and gets over conditioned. What kind of styling products do you recommend for fine curly hair? I am looking for definition without sacrificing volume.

Dear Weighed Down:

Good products should treat and control your hair without weighing it down. Since you say your hair has natural volume, you should try a lightweight styling gel to get the hold and definition you want. Make sure not to use too much product — a nickel size dollop for each 4 to 6 inch section of hair is enough.
