What is a good body-building shampoo and non-flattening
conditioner for fine, straight but normal thickness hair?
Something I can find in local stores. I don't have luck with root lifters and sprays.

Not a beautician but the owner of fine hair but lots of it... I actually stopped using conditioner. My hair is much bouncer without it! My hair is short too. My mum has similar hair and swears by the leave in conditioner you spray on out of the shower. Hope this gives you some ideas.

I tried this shampoo and the matching conditioner recently, and it seemed to give my hair more volume.

I have fine hair too. I use Suave Clarifying shampoo, no conditioner. Air dry, no hair dryer. When I was single I used Neutragena Daily Clarifying shampoo. I have occasionally used Paul Mitchell awapui ? no rinse conditioner, tiny amount, then rinsed out thoroughly. There is no conditioner made that does not make my hair flat within a day or two.
eta: my hair is usually close to my waist in length. I do not have time for the maintenance required for short hair.

Also not a beautician, but have very fine hair. I quit using store-bought shampoo and conditioner about 2 years ago. I wash with 2 tsp baking soda mixed into about half a cup of water, which I mix up for each wash (only 2x a week). For conditioner I mix 2 tbsp cider vinegar with about 3 cups of water in a squirt bottle which I keep in the shower, and it lasts several washes. Often I use the rinse even if I didn't wash my hair. It does take some trial and error to figure out how much soda your head needs, and how often. Google 'no shampoo' for lots more info. HTH

My daughter and I both have straight fine hair. We really like the Joico line Body Luxe. I don't really like conditioner because it seems to weigh your hair down, but the conditioner in the line is one of the best I tried.

I've got fine hair, too, and conditioners generally flatten it. 99% of the time I avoid it, except during winter when the indoors air is dry, and static electricity in my hair is worse than flat hair.

I tried one from Whole Foods last year, the brand is Jasön, for fine hair and it seemed to work pretty well.

Is your hair color treated or natural?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Another fine haired person here. I do use conditioner, but only on the ends. That way it doesn't get weighed down as much, and I can use whatever brand I like.

Does anyone have updates for summer hair?
I got a new bob to the neckline. Have gone thru mousse, leave-ins, gel, creams, heat products.
For straight but fine hilighted hair, air-dry, I need some after-shampoo product. Without the top is dry--using Chia--but too much leaves it flat. Guys have it so easy....!
