Use rich care
With thick hair, the care can hardly be too rich! The natural volume of your hair tolerates a lot of moisture - so you don't have to worry about weighing down your hair. On the contrary, if your hair is very thick and unruly, it may even be desirable to flatten it a little.
Therefore, you should gladly resort to intensive treatments and rich shampoos. Nourishing vegetable oils are also wonderfully suited for the care of thick hair. For your hair type, so-called non-dry oils are especially recommended: coconut oil, almond oil or olive oil for the hair keep the lengths smooth and prevent split ends and hair breakage.
Use styling tools correctly
If you have thick hair, you know the problem: As soon as you have twisted your curls, they have already said goodbye. Due to the additional weight of a thick mane, hairstyles generally hold a little worse.
But there are a few tricks you can use to make your styling last longer:
Use curling irons with a smaller diameter. Large curling irons are great for waves. But that doesn't apply to voluminous hair: Here the soft curls hang out much too quickly. Choose a small diameter so that the hair gets enough tension. You can still brush them through afterwards if you prefer to create light waves.
Cliff warm curls firmly. For freshly twisted curls to hold better, they should cool down in the right shape. Wrap the strand of curls around the head and attach it to the head. This fixes the curl shape and prevents the curls from unhanging quickly.
Wide straightening irons save you time. Fortunately, some technical manufacturers have thought ahead and created straightening irons with an extra wide surface. So you can straighten thick hair in a fraction of the time and save yourself a lot of effort (and sagging arms!).
Use accessories in the right size. Fine short bobby pins or thin braces are often not enough to keep thick hair in check. Reach for extra-long sturdy hairpins that you can pin crosswise in your hair. That way they hold bombproof!
Thick hair: Choose beautiful cuts
Fancy a new cut? You will be spoilt for choice! With your full mane, there are many beautiful hairstyles to choose from. Let the following ideas inspire you.
Steps, steps and more steps! Shorter parts of your hair will give you more momentum and take some volume out of your mane. This makes it easier and faster to get it into shape.
While women with fine hair have to be careful with ponies, you can let off steam! A full, straight cut pony looks especially good on you.
