A cou­ple weeks ago I wrote about how my expe­ri­ence as a fine-haired nat­ur­al has shaped how I see #hair­goals and who I con­sid­er my hair goals to be. In the arti­cle com­ments (here on BGLH and on Face­book) emerged a famil­iar top­ic: the lack of fine nat­ur­al hair inspi­ra­tion. And it’s true. It can be hard to find nat­ur­al vlog­gers and IG per­son­al­i­ties who iden­ti­fy as fine or thin-haired, but I’ve round­ed up sev­en who use their plat­forms to inform and inspire. Check it out;

YES! FINALLY! I’m so glad this is being dis­cussed because for a long time I felt dis­il­lu­sioned when I went nat­ur­al and kept wait­ing and wait­ing and WAITING for my hair to look like the nat­u­ral­is­tas I would always see on Youtube. But.… 6 years later…it nev­er hap­pened. Even­tu­al­ly I just had to suck it up and real­ize that my hair was nev­er thick/coarse/high-density, so it will NEVER look like some of the youtube gurus who have thick, lus­cious, BIG, volu­mi­nous hair. :-(  I would like to see more LONG hair inspi­ra­tion from fine/low and medi­um den­si­ty haired ladies like myself, because… Read more »


hon­est­ly, a lot of the curly girls have fine and non-thick hair. you can tell esp if they do a wash day rou­tine video (when the scalp is clear as a mid­sum­mer day sky) they just don’t talk about it or ppl don’t notice bc they are dis­il­lu­sioned by the vol­ume. hair vol­ume doesn’t equal hair den­si­ty nor does it mean your hair strands are thick/coarse. it sim­ply means your hair can bal­loon up lol many ppl with the thick­est strands/dense-ist hair lack vol­ume some­times bc the hair is soooo com­pact. in the end, just love it and it will… Read more »

I think Kim­may­Tube has fine nat­ur­al hair even though she hasn’t real­ly iden­ti­fied it as such. Does any­one else believe she does?

Nadege Juste

Yes she does have fine hair. And not a lot of vol­ume either. the tex­ture of of hair just give the illu­sion of vol­ume


And just for clar­i­fi­ca­tion- there’s a dif­fer­ence between thin and fine. Thin is the num­ber of fol­li­cles of hair you have on your head (some­one can have thin, coarse hair). Fine is the cir­cum­fer­ence of the hair shaft (some­one can have fine, thick hair). I have a video on my chan­nel about that if any­one is inter­est­ed. In my opin­ion, fine hair is resp­re­sent­ed but thin hair is not.


Omg mama I made it!! ?? nev­er thought the day I’D see myself on BGLH lol

Nsanzimana Regin

Please check out my YouTube chan­nel Nat­u­ral­lyRe­gi i have a TWA and I just did a pro­tec­tive style


Wow! Too hard to pick just one..all are so beau­ti­ful!


Crav­ing Yel­low & Curly Bola have fine thin hair and they’ve grown it out. Try to include some long haired girls for length inspi­ra­tion.


If any­one inter­est­ed Nat­u­ralme4c is a great exam­ple of nat­ur­al with fine hair on YouTube.

Nadege Juste

Her hair is both fine and thin


Notice how they all have short hair? :sigh:I guess my hair will nev­er be long. I hate hav­ing thin hair

The Natural Haven

I am late to the par­ty but I come bear­ing gifts! Strict­ly speak­ing, I do not know if the peo­ple below have fine hair (i.e the thick­ness of the strand), I do know that they have low den­si­ty hair (i.e low vol­ume of hair) which is long (i.e APL or longer)

it may appear short in the nat­ur­al state but that doesn’t mean it isn’t “long” by what­ev­er def­i­n­i­tion you’re com­par­ing it to. there are plen­ty of nat­u­rals with fine strands who have real­ly long hair. it takes time and patience to grow bc the slight­est rough­ness and it’ll break

I noticed that too smh. But it’s def­i­nite­ly pos­si­ble to retain length with thin hair of any tex­ture, just have to baby it a bit more. Side­note: I have a ton of real­ly dense­ly packed thin hair, looks like my strands are “thick/coarse” but real­ly I just have a lot of indi­vid­u­als hairs that are on the thin­ner side and break eas­i­ly. My hair as a whole is thick due to quan­ti­ty of strands, but my strands them­selves are not.  But I didn’t under­stand that and used to think I had coarse hair strands, there­fore I treat­ed them as such. I then… Read more »
In my hair jour­ney I real­ized that the worse thing thin haired nat­u­rals can do to their hair is over manip­u­lat­ing and apply­ing heat. With my hair I found my go to hair style Puff/pineapple and have been styling in the same way and have not applied heat for months now and noticed my hair is longer. I strug­gle with break­age of my ends due to me not trim­ming my hair and I’m iron defi­cient. While my hair doesn’t ever look as good as those thick hair nat­u­rals (styles like twist out always come out look­ing dead) I wouldn’t go… Read more »

Check out Dephne Mad­yara, she has thin waist length 4b-c hair. You won’t be dis­ap­point­ed!

Nadege Juste

Yes. That is true. Even though she said her in some video that her hair is coarse, actu­al­ly it is both fin and thin. She just has a 4c tex­ture that can bal­loon up and shrink a lot and that give the illu­sion of vol­ume and thick­ness


Oh real­ly, you think they all have short hair ? Lool, for me some of them have long hair, but it could just be my cur­rent TWA talk­ing lol. Also, I don’t think that you hair will nev­er be long because it’s thin (less hair den­si­ty). It can be a bit dif­fi­cult to retain length if your hair is fine (small­er hair strands) but def­i­nite­ly not impos­si­ble! :-)


It’s def­i­nite­ly pos­si­ble. Some peo­ple with fine hair just choose to keep it at a man­age­able length. It’s not that it can’t grow. Some­times, it’ just becomes too much to han­dle.

I went from bald to waist length in about 3.5 years. How­ev­er, the break­age was real from all the puffs, buns, and knots. My hair was stress­ing me out, so I’m back to bald again… and couldn’t be hap­pi­er. I have wayyyy more impor­tant things to con­sume my ener­gy than some dang hair.

Hang in there :)


What con­sti­tutes long hair? Shoul­der length? Armpit length? Bra strap length? Is length pass the shoul­ders con­sid­ered long?


Not all. Fiona Kolade’s hair seems to have some length (looks like it may be armpit to bra strap). Jumoke is armpit length. Faith n Fine Hair. 

I do think hair looks thick­er when it’s short­er and com­pact, you can’t see through it as eas­i­ly. But I’m sure you can grow your hair with super gen­tle han­dling, prop­er mois­tur­iza­tion, and con­stant pro­tec­tive styling.
