Common problems for thick-haired girls
We all know what it’s like for girls with thin hair, but did you ever think that thick-haired girls struggle too? Turns out a bouncy, voluminous ponytail ain’t so luscious all the time. Here are nine common problems girls with thick hair deal with on a daily basis.
#1 You always run out of conditioner before you’re out of shampoo
You’re forgiven – those voluminous locks need as much nourishment as they can possibly get.
#2 You have to dedicate an entire night to styling your hair
Because it takes half an hour to wash, 10 minutes to brush through and detangle, 45 minutes to blow-dry until every shred of dampness is removed, and at least another half an hour to straighten, curl or style.
#3 Otherwise it takes an entire day to dry naturally
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
#4 If you wear your hair in a ponytail, you get a headache
A thick, bouncy updo may induce hair envy to those not so fortunate – but in reality, holding an out-of-control mane on the top of your head hurts, like, a lot.
#5 One box of hair dye is never enough
You need at least two boxes, possibly three, depending on how many strands you’ve got. It’s best to remember this prior to dyeing your hair, or you may end up in a bit of a pickle. We’ve all been there.
#6 You shed more than your furry friends
On average: a good handful of hair per brush. But most girls with thick hair are happy to say goodbye to those strands. Survival of the fittest, right?
#7 You have to stretch out your elastics before you can use them
Just bought a brand new pack of elastics? It will take at least two days of limp ponytail-wearing before they will stretch out and hold your pony as tight as you would like.
#8 You must pre-warn hairdressers about your mane
“I’ve got pretty thick hair.”
“Oh no worries!”
“No really, it’s best you add a little bit of extra time to my appointment.”
And still – they always end up going into the next.
#9 If you sleep with wet hair, you wake up looking like this:
