    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.

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.
