6 Thickening Conditioners That Seriously Boost Fine Hair

Everybody wants thicker hair, but that can seem like an uphill battle if you have naturally fine hair. No matter what product you buy, it seems like your hair has fallen flat within hours—and no one likes to feel like they have thinning hair. On top of that, damaged hair can result in strands that feel lackluster.


Rather than recommend you a whole styling range of products, we’re focusing on our best thickening conditioners from the L'Oréal portfolio of products that can make a serious impact in your hair routine. Once you’ve found a Holy Grail product, we recommend shaping the rest of your go-to product range around it.


Got a pencil handy? Jot these conditioners down, baby. For best results, use each one as part of its respective hair care system.

Kérastase Densifique Fondant Densité

If you’re struggling with the amount of hair on your head but don’t want to reach for extensions quite yet, try Kérastase Densifique Fondant Densité. It’s formulated for a lifting, bodifying effect for hair visibly lacking density.

Redken Cerafill Defy Hair Thickening Conditioner

If the amount of hair on your head consistently causes you to stress, turn to a system like Redken’s CeraFill Defy—it can help you achieve fuller feeling hair. To achieve the best results, talk to a professional hair stylist about your mane goals before jumping into a new routine. He or she may have smart pointers about styling tricks and products to help make your hair look thicker.

Bumble and bumble Thickening Conditioner

One of the easiest ways to make fine hair look more visually impactful is by using a volumizing hair product to amp up the strands you’ve already got. We love Bumble and bumble Thickening Conditioner, a lightweight formula that instantly moisturizes and helps separate strands for voluminous, full-bodied styles.

Matrix Biolage FullDensity Thickening Conditioner

Being a woman with thin hair means sometimes having to opt out of top knots, ponytails, and the like. Rather than give up your sense of personal sense, give a salon-beloved hair care line like Matrix Biolage FullDensity thickening hair system a try. Formulated with biotin, this conditioner for thin hair could be the start of a new outlook on your ‘do.

L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Volumetry Conditioner

The higher the hair, the denser it looks. L'Oréal Professionnel Serie Expert Volumetry Conditioner is formulated with a combination of HydraLight and Intra-Cylane for an anti-gravity effect. Use this system before a home blowout for bouncy, gorgeous hair that won’t require extensions or thickening sprays to seem complete. We call it the building block of any great voluminous look.

Shu Uemura Muroto Volume Pure Lightness Conditioner

When the music isn’t loud enough, you turn it up to achieve maximum impact. Do the same with your hair using Shu Uemura’s Moroto Volume Pure Lightness Conditioner for fine hair. Instead of having a mane that feels heavy or weighed down by the product on it, you’ll be freeing your hair for bounce and height.
