17 Tips on How to Deal with Thick Hair ...


My sister has the most gorgeous thick, wavy hair… I’m so jealous! But for years, she hated it. While I was envious, she was having all kinds of hassle trying to deal with thick hair. While I was rocking cute clips, she was struggling to find a hair elastic tough enough to handle her hair. If you’re suffering from an excess of tresses, read on. I’ve chatted up my sister and my stylist and they’ve both provided me with an insight into the secret world of thick hair. Here are 10 tips on how to deal with thick hair.

1. Be Patient

Most people with thick hair also tend to have wavy hair, and wavy hair tends to frizz… which makes it even more unmanageable. Both my sister and my stylist agree: the best way to deal with thick hair is to be patient. Blow it all the way dry before you leave the house on a humid day… let it air dry for an hour or so, then tackle it with your dryer, wait ten minutes for your hair to cool, spray it with a light hold spray, and you’re ready to go. Anyone with thinner hair may wonder why this takes patience — but you girls with thick hair know it can take up to an hour to dry your hair all the way!
