We women have a challenge on our hands—or heads, as it were. During certain times of our lives, our hair is especially susceptible to changes in weather, can be tough to style and even tougher to keep in top condition. Pregnancy, menstrual cycles, perimenopause and menopause can all contribute to thinning hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of great products in the market that can help our hair look fuller and smoother. Here are some of my favorites, for the unique needs of our tender tresses!
Nourish: Whether you wear your hair long or short, creating volume in fine hair is essential. Give your hair some oomph with John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume formula, and revel in the results. If you’re dealing with thinning hair or hair loss, try Keranique’s line of protein-enhanced clinical formulas, which come with a 30-day guarantee, and are designed for age-related or post-pregnancy hair loss, once you’re past breastfeeding. Since frequent shampooing can dry hair out, göt2B Rockin’ It Dry Shampoo refreshes hair in-between washes, and it smells great.

Tame: I know all too well that fine hair can get a case of the frizzies like no other hair type! If you use a flat iron frequently, protect your tresses with göt2B Guardian Angel Flat Iron Balm. Or if you prefer natural waves, enhance them with göt2B Beach Trippin’ Salt Infusion Waving Spray. We’ve also given the Mamiverse seal of approval to the CrazySmooth system, which helps tame frizz in all sorts of weather.
Protect: For everyday protection, Loreal’s Triple Resist line of products helps prevent breakage—especially helpful for long locks. Pantene’s Repair and Protect products can help undo all sorts of damage—from color and chemical treatments to constant blow-drying and straightening. Ditto for Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue, which locks in moisture (that fine hair often lacks) to scalp and hair shaft. When you’re shampooing on the go, göt2B Rockin’ Dry Shampoo. Both these products are helpful for moms on the go!
