    And I'm Thankful..

    until hairdressers call each other over to "feel it!" and squawk about how thick it is.. I feel like a freak-show! And if I brush it when it's dry, it poofs out like a troll doll and I am one (a freak-show, not a troll)! But I love it; it's wild, it doesn't follow rules...

    Not Balding

    My hair just keeps getting thicker.  If I play with my hair, which I do often, then it just stays in that position.  I always look like I just woke up and got out of bed.  I don't really put much effort into it, actually none.  My hair was blonde and thin...

    Very Thick

    I have thick hair, very thick dark brown hair. When I was growing up, I use to have the worst tangles in my hair due to the thickness of it, and it still occasionally has tangles today no matter how much I brush it out. It can be a pain in the butt sometimes but I would rather...

    So, when I was about 9,

    (5'0) was my height. My hair completely past my shoulders, resting against my thighs. Lots of my friends called me Rapunzel. But there was one problem. My hair was and is soo thick!! It was like trying to comb a jungle. It was awful. And one day, when I wasn't paying attention...

    Not The Normal Kind Of Thick

    Okay everyone complains about having thick hair but not only is my hair thick but each individual hair feels like pencil lead. Those two combined and I have hair that looks like a pompom even when it's completely straight. I can't curl my hair because its so thick and when I do...

    Always A Struggle

    It's hard to do anything with my thick, wavy/curly hair! (I can never predict when my hair drys, whether it decides to be curly today or wavy.) I don't want it long because it gets way too heavy and drives me crazy. It looks funny when it's short. Hair products of all kinds are...

    because my hair is so thick. Thick hair is good but it's such a pain.

    How I Got Thick Hair

    I used to have very very whispy and fine hair until the day I decided to make the biggest mistake of my life.....     I cut it really short. Boy short.         And then it grew, and grew and grew and grew into black  tangles and...

    It Takes An Eternity To Fix.

    About a year ago my hairdresser bitterly informed me that I have approximately three sets of hair clustered together on my own scalp. In the future, she said, I should call and reserve two time slots because of the amount of time my dark blonde hair took to cut. It...

    It's pure torture when there's bad or dry weather (and it is like this in Dubai 99% of the time). i can't do hairstyle most girls with light hair do, and buns feel awfully heavy on my head. The only good thing about thick hair is up-dos (except for buns). Although I have my hair...

    I have super long, thick hair.

    Air-drying my hair is impossible, lol. It takes at least two days. It takes three hours to straighten it and an hour to wash it. My hair is a lot to manage but I love it and would never cut it!

    I Have Thick Unruly Hair

    I struggled for the longest with my hair. It's long, curly with some kink to it. I was watching tv one day, and saw one of those paid programming commercials for Instyler, a rotating flat/curling iron. I ordered 2, and will never go back to a regular curling iron or flat iron...

    My Hair Has Broken Combs

    I have African American hair. In the past, my hair's broken the teeth of combs. Blowdrying my hair after its wet can be the highlight of my day. If the comb attachment is new, my hair used to dislodge the comb. If the comb attachment was old, the comb and teeth may break off. I...

    Well, I Did Once

    This is most prob a topic for girls to write about. Sadly my hair isn't as thick as it used to be. I shouldn't complain. The reason I don't is. I see so many men in their 20s & 30s , who now have a shaved head. This is due to, male pattern balding. When I was 16, I worked with a...

    In the winter it's wonderful having thick hair

    because it keeps your neck warm. But in the summer it gets so hot I usually have to get my hair thinned, and I usually keep it up in a ponytail so I can feel a little cooler.
