6 Tips on How to Handle Thick and Wavy Hair

  • 20 March 2019

Having thick hair is both a blessing and a curse because even though you have full hair, it becomes really a task to maintain your hair on a regular basis. The trouble with thick hair is that they are so thick and heavy that you don’t understand how to handle them and what to do to keep them healthy and strong.

If you are not able to handle your thick hair, read on below for six of our best tips:

1. Don't skip conditioner

If you don’t deposit moisture in your hair, the cuticle will open up to let moisture from the air in, which will turn your hair from smooth to frizzy. It is recommended to use a conditioner that contains glycerin with other hydrating ingredients such as shea butter and coconut oil, and apply it from mid of the scalp to down to your ends.

2. Don't blow-dry soaking wet hair

Your hair can become frizzy if too much hot air is focused directly on your strands which dehydrate them. Let your hair air-dry 90 percent of the way, if you have straight-to-slightly-wavy hair, and then use a dryer on it for the last 10 percent.

3. Use dry oil

Apply moisture-locking dry oil while your hair is still wet, from your ends to midway up your hair shaft. The oil acts as a barrier, keeping liquids from piercing. Once your hair is almost dry, use a round brush with mixed bristles to seal the cuticle for a smooth finish. You can also flat-iron your hair after it's dry as nothing will seal the cuticle like strong heat.

4. Cut back on washes

In order to maintain your thick hair, the first thing you need to start doing is to skip out on some shampoos. You need to minimize your hair wash routine as the scalp’s natural oils provide moisture and shine, and washing your hair every day can strip you of those making your hair frizzy and dry. Try leaving at least one day in between washes, which will make maintaining your thick hair much easier.

5. Don’t over-dry it

Air-drying your hair isn’t always an option with thick hair, as it can literally take hours on end. On the other hand, blow drying it extremely can be damaging. So the best option is to let your hair dry partially before you even pick up the blow dryer and use it on a medium to low heat setting for best results.

6. Keep up with trims

Split ends are known for making your full, thick hair appear weak and lifeless. Hence, in order to get rid of these tough ends, make sure you get a good trim every 6-8 weeks.
