11 Super Simple Hacks to Make Your Thick Hair More Manageable

 

Sometimes thick hair can be harder to manage, but with these tips, you'll be a pro in no time.

1. Ask your hairstylist to "take the weight out" of your hair.

Sarah Potempa says, "adding long layers gives thick hair movement, while blending these layers with texturizing shears helps to lighten the hair."

2. Use serum.

Serums can reduce frizziness and help your strands lay flatter. 

3. Ask your hairstylist for an undercut.

When you remove hair at the nape of your neck, your hair will lay more smooth and look more sleek.

4. Use your flat iron.

A flat iron will help hair to look sleeker.

5. Use a rubber hair tie.

A rubber hair tie will hold thick hair nicely.  They grip firmly and hold hair in place.

6. Try a half-up 'do.

Thick hair is perfect for a half-up hairstyle. It will take the thickness out of the bottom layer of your hair. The Half Up is the perfect solution to a half up bun.

7. Grow your hair out.

When your hair is longer, it gets heavier and will help to reduce the amount of volume.

8. Comb your hair with a paddle brush while you're in the shower.

Sarah Potempa says you should brush your hair after you've conditioned to get rid of knots, then again with a wide tooth comb once you get out of the shower to rid your hair of tangles for good.

9. Rock a center part.

A center part evenly distributes your hair. When you have a side part, one side of the hair appears much thicker.

10. Use a clarifying shampoo.

Sarah Potempa says this will keep your hair from being weighed down with grease and extra product.

11. Never leave the house with wet hair.

Sarah Potempa says you should "wait for your hair to dry all the way before leaving the house." Wind and humidity can all make your hair messy and dry hair holds its shape much better than damp hair.
