7 Real Benefits Of Having Fine Natural Hair

fine hair4. Your Hair Stretches Easily

Fine hair really does not need that much manipulation to be elongated because the density of the strands allows for ease when stretching. You may find that sometimes fine haired ladies end up overstretching their hair when employing typical elongation techniques like pinning up twists which may leave us with limp looking twist outs.

This may not be such a bad thing though because as it goes hand in hand with ‘hang time’ and you are able to enjoy your length a whole lot easier without having to use heat.



5. Responds Well To Slip

Even though fine hair can tangle easily, and it does, it detangles relatively easily too under the right conditions. If you have fine hair, the best way to handle it would be with your ten fingers, under a shower stream with loads of slippy conditioner. For some reason there is no match for the shower stream when detangling fine hair with the knots and snarls literally melting away!

6. Your Hair Tends To Have That “Wind Blown” Effect

This is one of the best benefits of fine hair. Fine hair has a wind blown effect because it is so light and airy. When it is longer the benefits are even more pronounced with the hair falling perfectly back in place once the wind calms down (I can’t promise the same for shorter hair!).

It’s always best to avoid adding too much product, just to let the hair ‘do what it do’ and you will get that ‘gone with the wind fabulous’ feeling, literally!

7. Your Edges Lay Down Easily

If you are black then you have some edges that probably need some laying. Fine hair responds very quickly to edge control products or just a little shea butter.

There is no need for harsh gels or anything that has a hard hold to lay the edges down, nor as stated before do you need much in order to get your edges looking right.

If you have fine hair what other benefits can you think of?

I wish I could get my daughters hair to look and stay like this. It just dries up and frizz knots up, no matter Wat co wash, conditioner, products, her hair is 4c and 5 different textures, quite easy to comb thru but hard to keep a natural style

hi, great article. I also have fine hair and its shoulder length. I have learnt to love it as it is. Everyone compliments me on how soft it looks and feels like.I wear it straight most of the time, but once in a while protective styling. The advantage of fine hair, in my case, is that a blow out can last for three to four months, so minimal heat on my tresses!

Very good and informative article.
