Is your hair thick or thin? Mine is very, very thick. It’s almost impossible to style sometimes because it is so thick. My mom has very, very thin hair, which is almost impossible to style sometimes too. Luckily, once you learn some tricks, your hair will be a lot easier to style.
Some cuts and styles are better suited to thin or thick hair, so it’s important to know which one you have. With my mom’s thin hair, there are cuts that she wants, but she can never pull off. Likewise, I have to be mindful of the styles I want because of how thick my hair is.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THICK HAIR AND THIN HAIR?
You might think that your hair is thick if you have a lot of hair, but that’s not necessarily true. Thick or thin hair doesn’t refer to the density of your hair. It refers to the actual width of each strand of hair. Density refers to how close the hair follicles are to each other on your scalp.
So yes, it is possible to have thin hair and still break ponytail holders because your hair is dense.
