Fine hair takes an extra fine level of care -- it can easily be damaged by the elements and weighed down by the buildup of harsh chemicals in hair products. Fine tresses that are dry and brittle, flat or frequently frizzy should be treated with deep conditioners that will nourish and revitalize the hair. Look for conditioners with natural ingredients or low levels of chemicals, as well as those with added proteins and strengtheners.

Kerastase Nutritive Masqueintense for Fine Hair

Kerastase's Nutritive Masqueintense for Fine Hair contains silicon to strengthen fine hair, and was recommended by "InStyle" magazine for its intense hydrating ability. "Canadian Living" also recommended the product, with its reviewer claiming that it worked wonders on her fine and frizzy hair without leaving excess buildup.

L'Oreal EverPure Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask

L'Oreal's EverPure line contains products free of sulfates, which tend to to be harsh on fine hair and contribute to dryness. According to "Allure," the L'Oreal EverPure Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask makes hair silky without making it limp -- an ideal combination for fine hair in need of a boost. In addition, Vitamin E and rosemary help to condition and restore dry or color-damaged hair.

Frederic Fekkai Protein RX Reparative Treatment Mask

This protein-powered deep conditioning mask strengthens hair and makes it feel more voluminous. Totalbeauty.com's fine-haired reviewer remarks that her hair was left "manageable and shiny and soft, but not greasy" after using Frederic Fekkai Protein Rx Reparative Treatment Mask. "The Palm Beach Post" recommends applying the same product, but only to the ends of fine hair to control frizz.

DIY Banana and Egg Mask

While there are products galore on the shelves, sometimes all it takes to bring fine hair back to life are some simple kitchen ingredients. For an intense deep-conditioning treatment, try a hair mask made of mashed banana, a whole egg and a moisturizing oil, such as coconut oil. "Allure" points to the banana's ability to thicken hair, while the proteins in eggs strengthen fine locks.
