Curly hair can be difficult to manage and when it's also fine and thinning, it can present some real challenges.

Nobody knows this better than our latest hairstyle makeover client: Jillana Laufer.



Laufer says she has been using deep conditioners on her hair to help build body, but celebrity hairstylist Chaz Dean says those protein-enriched products can actually do more harm than good for thinning hair -- often leading to breakage. Instead, Dean suggests she use a tea tree oil and a cleansing conditioner versus a traditional lathering shampoo.

As far as Laufer's style, Dean says her hair color is two to three shades too dark. For the cut, he shortens her length and adds layers for more volume. Long, sweeping bangs help flatter her oval face, and a side part also works to shorten her longer facial shape.

"Wow! It's beautiful. I love it," said Laufer of her softer, fuller locks.

Speaking of fuller locks, did you see this hair makeover?
