If you have thin, fine hair, like me, finding the perfect shampoo and conditioner can be a lifetime pursuit. There has to be the right balance between adding volume without weighing my hair down. Products labeled as “volumizing” or “thickening” often help add body, but many times they don’t soften or nurture my strands and the texture ends up feeling too hard or brittle.
With Ceremonia’s Weightless Hydration Wash Day ($40), a new shampoo and conditioner duo formulated specifically for those with fine or thin hair, I get the best of both worlds without having to compromise. The scent, a mix of woody and lemony notes, creates an in-shower sensorial experience that transports me to a spa. The lingering fragrance left in my stands have me sniffing my own hair throughout the day just to get another fix.
I also love that the clean, Latinx-founded brand continues to honor its roots by including indigenous ingredients that have been used for centuries on Latinx hair types. The thing about Latinx hair is that our strands are as diverse as our skin tones. What I’ve found throughout the years sitting in countless Dominican salons while my mom and sisters got beautiful blowouts is that fine, thin hair rarely gets attention in the Latinx beauty space—until now. Who knew hair care products could help you feel seen?
Free of sulfates and silicones, this dynamic shower pairing gives me super hydrated, bouncy, voluminous strands that smell delicious and feel expensive. Yucca extract, witch hazel and plant-based “Keratin” in the Weightless Champú de Yucca (shampoo) cleanse without drying hair out or stripping the scalp of its natural oils. The Weightless Acondicionador de Cupuaçu (conditioner) leaves my hair feeling silky soft but not greasy. Cupuaçu butter and castor oil help to add shine while that same plant-based “Keratin” ingredient helps add to the volume boost.
Aloe Vera (Guatamala), Castor Oil (India), Cupuaçu Butter (Peru), Guava Fruit Extract (Thailand), Yucca Extract & Witch Hazel (USA)
How to Use It:
A little goes a long way with both the Champú and Acondicionador, so ease into it. Despite its clean formulation, the shampoo creates a delicious lather while you massage it into your scalp. Like with any conditioner for fine hair, target your strands from the midlength down the roots.
