Fine hair can be a pain.

Sometimes we’re afraid of it burning because of how thin it is, and surely we need to keep all of our hair strands safe so it doesn’t get thinner! Other times it just doesn’t seem to hold the curls right. It’s so hard to find the best curling iron for fine hair. Why?! Thin hair should be easier to heat up and hold curls perfectly. Life just doesn’t work that way. Instead, we are blessed with lifeless thin hair that gets oily too easily.


Thin Hair Recap

◊ It’s lifeless

◊ It’s dull

◊ Curls won’t hold

◊ It gets oily quick

◊ It burns easily

◊ It makes your head look big !?


Yikes. Maybe I shouldn’t be bashing fine hair like that. But that doesn’t mean you’re completely out of luck.

A way to get some volume in your hair is to learn how to create beautiful curls. When hair is curled, the volume allows it to be protected from getting greasy too. But if it can burn easily and the curls don’t hold, how is this possible? You need a different curling iron, one that works. So how do you find out what the best curling iron for fine hair is?

  1. I enjoyed your website! You are definitely knowledgeable about your products and the reviews are very good. It’s a niche that I think you will find profitable.

    I left a comment about the curling iron. The link to your review of it worked perfectly and I think having the question and answer section is brilliant!

    • Thanks again Cheryl,

      I just started doing the question and answer section. I think I will start doing that on more reviews since it seems to be helpful!

  2. Hi Gina, thanks for this awesome article. I have little girls, my eldest is four and youngest is 1. Now they both have natural curly hair but my wife has wavy thick hair. Do you think this iron will work for her? And its pretty long so as you can imagine its obviously heavy as well. I’ll have her look into this iron. Thanks so much

    • Jason,

      This curling wand will work for any type of hair. For thicker hair, I would recommend her to curl smaller chunks of hair at a time so the heat can have a distributed effect for curling.

  3. Thanks for this article. But I got a question, isn’t it easier to put the review on the same page instead of a little information? Another question that I have is, how much time did it take you to have the results that you have on the screenshot that you put by using the product? Overall I really like your intention of offering an alternative to earn volume on the hair. Well done article and I’ll look forward to keep updated.

    • Javier,

      I like to keep blog posts separate from product reviews for organization reasons.

      Also, it only takes about 15-20 minutes to have the result of beautiful curls by using this curling wand; nice, quick and easy!

  4. Hi Gina,

    It is a very interesting topic of what curling iron is best for fine hair. I am going to point my wife in the direction of this website since she has more hair than I do and she likes to experiment with different things. This blog post is basic, well thought out, and easy to understand.

    Yours Truly,


  5. My girlfriend has been looking for a curling iron for sometime now and we both thought this article was very helpful. the only question we had was how much does the curling iron and Paul Mitchell hairspray cost? thanks for the great article I am looking forward to reading more on your website 🙂

  6. Yes that is exactly it, I have quite fine hair and I had a curling iron at one stage and it just didn’t work well for me at all. I gave up and gave it away to someone.
    I have to honest though, I saw one in the shop and thought hey it would be nice to have a curling iron and just bought it. Looking back I should have investigated a bit further and looked into different brands and gotten a recommendation. Thanks, this looks like it might be what I want.

    • Lynne,

      It can be overwhelming when there are so many options to choose from, so it’s normal for women to just grab one and be on their way. Luckily you came across my blog post. I hope you decide to give it a try. You won’t regret it. 🙂

  7. I have always believed that won’t the hair get thinner with more and more straightening it out and curling it again.
    TO be honest that is one of the major fears I have as I have thin hair and increasing hair fall is only going to out me in more trouble and that is the major reason that I’m holding back from using these products.

    • Shrey,

      It’s a smart assumption that hot tools will ruin your hair BUT that’s only if you don’t use a quality heat protectant. Heat protectant sprays coat your hair strands and don’t allow the hot tools to penetrate or burn your hair. However there are many low quality heat protectant products or ones that will easily make fine hair greasy looking. Check out these heat protectant sprays.
