HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE THICK HAIR OR THIN HAIR
Telling the difference is easy. Just take one strand of hair and look at it. If it’ thin, you have thin hair. If it’s thick, you have thick hair. If you’re not sure, ask your stylist or compare it to a friend’s hair.
To check for density, just look in a mirror. If can see parts of your scalp, then your hair has a low density. If you can’t see your scalp, you have a high density.
I actually have both thin and thick strands, one from each parent. My thick strands are curly from my dad’s side, and my thin strands are super straight from my mom’s side. I have more thick strands than thin, so I consider my hair to be thick. I also have a thick density.
THICK AND THIN HAIR PROBLEMS
Both hair types have the pros and cons.
If you have thin hair, you probably have to redo your ponytail or hair clips constantly because they just don’t hold. Your hair might also get greasy if you use the wrong conditioner. Your hair probably won’t hold a curl, either.
If you have thick hair, it can take forever to dry. Even blow drying your hair can take a long time! You will also have problems with hair accessories but that’s because they just aren’t big enough for your hair. (I really like these longer hair clips because they hold better.)
