Although your friends are envious of your voluminous hair, some mornings you would gladly trade it in for flat locks. Dryness, frizz, untameable volume... It does come with minor annoyances that makes your life difficult. However, rest assured, your hair is not a lost cause. There are lots of tips to get your thick hair back in tip-top condition and full of vitality once more.
Start by choosing a haircut suited to your hair type. Say goodbye to ultra-short haircuts at the risk of ending up with a rather unflattering "helmet hair" effect, and layers which pump up the volume. Instead opt for thinned-out haircuts, which are ideal for reducing the thickness. Would you like a fringe? No problem, as long as it helps reduce the volume of the whole hairstyle, such as a curtain fringe. Once styled to your satisfaction, it's time to take care of your thick hair, which generally tends to be very dry. Try-out detangling products, masks and other nourishing treatments. If despite their density your locks are not lacking in hydration, use pH neutral shampoos and conditioners. The important thing is to tailor your haircare regime to your hair type. If you have thick hair, there is always one saying: be generous with the amount of product you apply so you can properly spread it out over the entirety of your hair. The very important final step: detangling. Due to its high density, thick hair is prone to knots. A wide tooth comb will help you do the job much more easily.
