You could try a leave in conditioner/ detangler. I have a spray that works awesome. I have super thick, wavy hair so very different from yours but it keeps it untangled and managable.

somethingblue04:  Ugh I have the same kind of hair you do. I keep a small brush in my purse. It helps to hair spray it lightly once I have it all brushed out and soft. But if the wind gets to it there’s no fixing it.

I have the same hair, and its probably not what you want to hear but I cut about 2 – 3 inches off last week and it stopped getting so tangled. My hair dresser said the ends get even thinner than my already fine hair and that’s why they tangle even more. She was right because it hasn’t snarled up since. It’s not as long as I want but it looks so much fuller now too

No product for fine thin hair. I am always amazed by how many hairstyist have no clue about trhat. When I get my hair trimmed they always put product in and looks like crap. The only thing I can ue it just a bit of silcone product before I brush the wet hair. That helps smooth it when you blow dry which is a must also.

My hairs a bit thicker but it is really long so it gets tangled really easily. Products seem to leave it a little greasy looking and as soon as I leave the house its guarenteed to mess up. I just carry a little brush with me everywhere. The only other thing is dry shampoo! I use it if im going out as it gives so much more volume, even if my hairs not greasy dry shampoo just makes it look thicker.

somethingblue04:  Idk where you’re from but I am from Pennsylvania. Its called simoly stunning leave in conditioner by the brand vo5. I just avoid spraying my roots and it makes my hair manageable and keeps it untangled all day.

Sounds like you should take some of the length off & get some layers and/or texturizing done to it.

I gave up. 🙂 I don’t let it grow too long past my shoulders or else it tangles when I’m sitting. I grow my nails out so I can “brush” it easily with my hands all the time. Always in a ponytail before even thinking about getting in the water. And I try to brush it into some reasonable shape under the water before I get out of the pool.

Perhaps a braid? I’m not sure I’d try it myself for fear of people seeing too much of my scalp. But maybe it would look more sophisticated than a ponytail. I see awesome braids on pinterest all the time.

I love “it’s a 10” miracle spray.  i’m a frizz ball, and it’s magic.  I do have wavy hair and have to straighten, though.

somethingblue04:  That’s my hair! My rule is that I never wear it down outside. Ever. Then I take it out of the bun/ponytail at work. That helps out so, so much! I also find that having my hair trimmed regularly makes a huge difference. 

My routine: wash/rinse my hair, comb straigt, do not touch it until it dries. Put it up at night/to walk the dog/to go to work. Take it down (it’s straight!), wear it up to go home/run/walk dog. and then repeat. I rarely have tangles anymore.

somethingblue04:  I don’t like to use a lot of product either. I use herbal essences body envy volumizing hairspray when I need to though. It keeps things in place but it doesn’t get sticky or hard. It’s the only hairspray I used that your hair stays soft after!

somethingblue04:  My tips would be:

Regular (every 8 weeks) trims, to keep split ends at bay and keep it healthy. Also consider having a few inches taken off if it’s very long and the ends are unhealthy. 

Use conditioner every time you wash. Try different brands to find one that works for you (ie doesn’t leave a build up/make it greasy) 

Use am intensive conditioner once or twice a week

Blow-dry with a decent brush, and use argan oil (I use one called Amargen oil). It’s light/non-greasy and makes your hair so soft and smooth. Not cheap, but worth every penny IMO.

I have super fine, thin, long hair too… the best things I do for it:

Don’t wash it every day… sounds crazy right because it can get greasy?  I use Klorane dry shampoo on between days.

I use a leave-in conditioner.  I alternate between “It’s a 10” and “Beauty Protector”.  I only use 4-5 sprays of each and I use it near the ends/middle of my hair- never on the roots.
