    Posted: November 16 2004 at 10:46pm
Since my short hair is fine (but I have a lot of it!), I usually wear some hair spray to keep it "managed" and not fly-away. Is there a GOOD hair spray for fine hair that won't build up "krud" on it or dry it out so it doesn't break? Is there an alternative to hair spray. I'm a "mature" woman so, please, no "stiff" stuff! LOL

I have found, belive it or not, Pantene Maximum Hold works the best on my hair. I have tried EVERY product, from salon brands, matrix amplify, paul mitchell, biolage, redken , you name it, i've tried it. but the best thing that works for me is Pantene Maximum hold. at first it will feel sticky, until it dries, but after that, the hold is ALL day, but you can still get your fingers through it. try it, you';ll be happy you did.

Baker, I have a question for you: I know I have fine hair but I yet to figure out how to decide if it's thick or medium. I'm pretty sure it's not thin... but I can't tell if I "have a lot of it." :)

Oh and I always Herbal Essance hair spray. Seems to work good for me! Suave is good also. Neither of them are stiff. (I usually run my hands thru my hair a few minutes after spraying also)

portrgirl--I had a friend that had fine hair, but it was very thin, so I compared my hair to hers. I had a lot more hair than she did (thank God for small favors!). You could almost see her scalp her hair was so thin, but mine is not even close to that. Anyway, one day when I was at my salon, I asked my girl what "thickness" my hair was and she told me it wasn't thin--I had a lot of hair for fine hair. It holds a style nicely and isn't too limp if I have a good cut. I haven't permed in 20 years and don't intend to. Also, I do the same thing after I use hair spray--just run my fingers through so it doesn't look "sprayed". I've used Pantene spray for years, but I read on this forum somewhere that Pantene is the worst because it caused build-up on the hair. That was the reason for my asking. :)

You can tell the thickness of your hair by putting it all into a ponytail and measuring around the base of the tail. Under 2" is thin, 2"-4" is medium, and 4" or more is thick. If you can't get all of your hair into the ponytail, then estimate how much more the rest of it would add.

That's a good way to tell! Never knew that. Unfortunately, I can't measure mine that way--my hair is short. LOL

UP Lisa: Should I make the band very tight or how I usually do it (tight enough to hold the hair and not slide out but not so tight that I'm struggling to get the band around again)?

I use Kenra 25 hairspray. I need a real strong hold for my very short hair and it is perfect for me.
