Volumizing? Moisturizing? Heat-resistant? Choosing hair styling products can be tough. With the amount of products and styling tools available, figuring out which products to use for your hair type can be downright confusing.

Zano Salons offers haircuts and hairstyling services to give you the look you’re seeking. Whether you have thin or thick hair, we’re here to show you the tools and hair products you need to bring out the best in your locks:


Recommended Hair Products for Thin Hair

Volume Enhancing Hair Products

If you have thin hair, what you’re in most need of is volume. Look for hair products such as shampoo and conditioner that offer volumizing properties. These products will help add body to your hair as you style.

Give Your Hair a Boost & Volume with Mousse

Mousse is a thin-haired girls best friend. Although mousse used to dry out hair, formulas today are made to moisturize. Look for volume enhancing types to help give your hair a boost. Just be sure to use a small amount, and run through your hair to avoid getting that helmet head look often found with overuse. If you need assistance finding a new hairstyle, visit a Zano Salons location in Naperville, Lisle, or Batavia, Illinois. We offer haircuts and hairstyling services to meet your preferences.

Enhance the Body of Your Hair with Velcro Rollers

After you’re done blow drying, don’t reach for the curling iron, reach for velcro rollers instead. Section off pieces of hair and curl them up in velcro rollers to add extra lift to your roots. Hit the rollers with a blast of cool air from your blow dryer to set, and viola: instant lift.

Finish Styling with a Dry Shampoo Hair Product

Still using hairspray to set your look? To enhance your hairstyle, we recommend a dry shampoo hair product. Instead of stiffening your hair, dry shampoo will absorb into your hair, offering a better hold and extended volume. Bonus tip: Don’t brush your hair after applying dry shampoo. Let the hair product work its way into your hair on its own, increasing hold and decreasing fizz.

Recommended Hair Products for Thick Hair

Moisturizing Hair Products

Thick hair has a tendency to dry out. When looking for hair products, be sure to reach for ones that offer moisture. Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners are a great base for ensuring thick hair gets the care it needs to stay healthy and strong.

Frizz Controller

Always dealing with frizz and flyaways? Reach for an oil-based hair product to help tame them. Oils such as aragon help tame frizz in thick, dry hair creating a sleek look. Remember, when using oils a little goes a long way. Depending on hair length, use around a dime size amount of hair product, working it through your hair to decrease frizz.

Primer Spray

Love your thick hair but hate how long it takes to dry? Decrease blow drying time by investing in a primer spray. Priming the hair pre-blow dry will help lessen the time you’ll have to stand in front of the mirror with a dryer blasting in your ear.

Right Blow Dryer

Speaking of blow drying, be sure to use the right blow dryer for the job. Thick hair can take a long time to dry, so knowing which dryer is best can help speed up the process. Look for an ion dryer with at least 1800 watts of power. This will help your hair dry faster, with less damage and frizz when compared to traditional dryers.
