                  I am older and not really dealing with thinning hair. However, this is a shampoo I use occasionally as it is so refreshing. Lathers great and rinses well. Love the smell and feel of shampoo. Have used this on and off for years.

                      A:

                      For chin length fine hair, use a quarter size diameter in the palm of your hand. If your hair is very soiled, two shampoos would be necessary.
