Hey Curly haired beauty!

We get it – having fine curls might make you think that achieving volume and definition is mission impossible. But fear not! With the right techniques and products, your fine curls can absolutely have that bounce and definition you’ve been seeking. Today, we’re here to fill you in on how to make it happen.

1. Start with the Right Shampoo and Conditioner:

The foundation of gorgeous, voluminous and defined curls begins with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Look for sulfate-free options that cleanse gently without stripping your curls. Fine curly hair needs moisture without the weight, so opt for lightweight, hydrating formulas. This sets the stage for a good hair day. We recommend the van + veronica Cleanse and Condition Duo for your Wash Day curly hair reset.

2. Deep Conditioning Magic:

Fine curls, just like any other hair type, need regular hydration. Treat your fine locks to a deep conditioning session once a week to give your curls their best life. A hydrating hair mask can restore life into your curls, making them more hydrated, soft and ready to hold their beautiful shape.

3. The Perfect Cut:

The right haircut can make a world of difference, especially for people with for fine curls. Opt for cute layers to add movement and body. A skilled curly hair stylist who understands the intricacies of your curls can transform your locks, while enhancing their unique and natural texture. When your curls are properly shaped, they will appear more voluminous, defined and full of life.

4. Style It Right with van + veronica Styler:

Now, let’s talk about the secret weapon: van + veronica Styler, your medium hold curl defining gel. This humidity resistant styling gem defines your curls without weighing them down. Apply a generous amount of our Styler to your soaking wet hair, ensuring even distribution. Smooth your curls gently to encourage their natural pattern while the Styler works its magic. The medium hold ensures your fine curls are held in place, giving you that coveted definition and volume. While the humidity resistance keeps your fine curls defined all week. And because it’s specifically designed for fine curls, you won’t have to worry about heaviness or stiffness.

5. The Pineapple Trick:

Ever heard of the pineapple technique for curly hair? It’s a game-changer for preserving your fine curls’ volume and definition, especially while you sleep. Gather your curls at the top of your head in a loose, high ponytail before bedtime (Tip: We recommend using a silk scrunchie to prevent breakage). Cover them with a silk scarf to reduce friction and frizz. In the morning, release the pineapple, and voila, you have beautiful curls that have maintained their shape and volume throughout the night.

In conclusion, achieving volume and definition for your fine curly hair isn’t impossible after all. It’s a reality waiting to happen. By following these tips and incorporating van + veronica Styler into your curly hair routine, you’ll unlock the full, voluminous potential of your curls.
