How To Tame Thick, Unruly Hair

When you have thick hair, it always seems like there is too much hair and it’s so hard to control. Hair gets on your face, in your food—everywhere—and it never stays how you want it. You don’t need high-end products to tame your thick hair. You only need safe hair care products and extra care to control your hair without causing damage.

The best ways to keep your thick hair under control is to take good care of it. Letting it get damaged from heat and hair color would only make the job harder. To keep your hair healthy, use only safe hair care products. The Hydration Shampoo from Jaci is a naturally based shampoo that does not contain harsh chemicals. This shampoo is designed to clean and nourish hair without stripping it of its natural oils. Couple this with the Hydration Conditioner to keep hair moisturized, soft, and manageable without weighing it down. Still, even with these great hair products, it is best to wash your hair at most every other day to prevent it from becoming dry.

Experts emphasize the importance of using lightweight, safe hair care products for managing thick hair. There are a lot of products out there claiming to tame your thick tresses containing harsh shampoo ingredients. Opt for hair products—masks, serums, and so on—that are naturally based to further moisturize and protect your hair. Such hair products will complement Jaci’s Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner in keeping your hair healthy and manageable.

Be careful, too, with how you handle your hair after washing. Air-drying your hair is, of course, the least damaging option. If you’re going down this road, don’t rub your hair aggressively with your towel, even if it’s a microfiber towel. There’s still friction there. Instead, gently pat your hair with your towel to allow it to absorb the water. Detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb while it’s still wet starting from the bottom going up. This will minimize breakage and frizz.

Air-drying thick hair could take hours, however, and not everyone has the time. So, to minimize the damage, let your hair air-dry half-way through before blow-drying it in low heat setting. But don’t do this without using a heat-protecting serum.

Finally, keep up with your trims. Most people opt for short hairstyles, but if you prefer longer styles, incorporate layers to your hair. Layers are best for adding lightness to your hair. Plus, regular trimming keeps hair healthy and free from split ends.
