While having fine hair generally means that your hair texture is less prone to frizziness and getting out of control in the humidity, there’s a whole other set of problems that you face. For example, it’s easy for your hair to look flat and limp, styling products tend to weight your strands down and when exposed to chemical processes, fine hair snaps and breaks easily. Factor in the hot and humid climate that we live in means you also have to deal with over-active sebum glands and sweat follicles, which means that it’s a constant challenge to keep hair light and airy. 

For starters, avoid using hair products that contain parabens, sodium chloride and silicone that may irritate your scalp, strip hair of natural moisture and weigh it down. Instead, look out for hydrating and strengthening ingredients like aloe vera, coconut oil, honey and rice proteins as they replenish dry tresses, boost hair shine and thickens hair. And while all hair care brands offer shampoos for fine hair, look no further than Japanese hair care brands as you can be assured that these formulas are made specially for Asian hair. Try these Japanese shampoos for light and airy tresses that will not fall flat as easily:
