how to style and manage thick hair!
hello everyone! today i am going to help give some tips and pointers on how to style and manage thick and/or long hair! if you cant tell, i have extremely thick, long, and fine hair. this is typical of scandinavians, as i am mostly scandinavian and get this hair type from my father. so, if you’re scandinavian as well, you also want probably struggle with your hair. my hair actually used to be much longer, but i cut it because im moving away soon and wont have access to my affordable hair stylist (my best friends mom)😂 the problem with thick, fine hair is that its very hair so curl and style because it doesnt want to stay put, and it doesnt hold curls very long. not to mention, curling my entire head of hair takes me about three hours😭 also, heats bad for your hair anyways, so none of these hairstyles involve heat! instead, they involve braids! now, any of variation of these styles can be done without braids. but i find braids to be a simple yet elegant way to manage hair like mine. i get a LOT of tangles very quickly, so braids help prevent tingles. another thing i use for thick hair is ARGAN MAGIC - 10 in 1 Treatment Leave in Spray this is a hair mist that de-frizzes my hair, and helps to smooth it out. its a good idea to always wet down your hair with hair mist or water, as it helps you be able to seperate and work with your hair. now lets get into the styles! style one: hair pulled back from face this style is really simple and can be done with braids or just plain hair. it involves pulling a front chunk of hair from each side away from the face and tying it together in the back. this helps get hair away from your face that may cause sweat or acne, and it can help to make your hair look more tame. style two: half up half down there are many ways to style to top section of your hair! in this photo, i simply put the top of hair in a ponytail, braided it, then tied it at the end. some girls like to do a bun on top, others do a plain pony. you can also french or dutch braid just the top part of your hair and leave the rest down if you like. this can help get your hair out of your face! style three: one sided dutch braid this hair style is a little more difficult. basically, i started a dutch braid on the left side of my head, and incorporated all of my hair into it. youre left with a nice side braid! i cant braid down the middle of my head, so this is a better option. also, double dutch or french braids look great for thick hair, as they look really big and stylish. definitely wet your hair for this one! so, how do you style your thick hair? do you have any other tips? dont forget to cheer and follow if you enjoyed ❤️
