If you suffer from thick hair syndrome, then you've come to the right place. Thick hair can be such a nightmare, you have course hair and you often wake up looking like hagrid. So today, I thought I'd share with you a few of my go-to hair styles.
P.S. Please forgive me for my terrible roots - I'm trying to save my hair! And as you'll see, my resting b**** face is strong...
Sometimes you cannot go wrong with a messy bun. It's simple, you don't have to straighten your hair beforehand and it can almost seem effortless - and that's because it kind of is. I also like to pull a few bits of hair down to make it look natural. It's definitely a favourite for those days where you need to just run out of the house.
Half up, half down
I love this hair style - although it would work a lot better without those damn roots. It works with both straight and wavy hair, creating a relaxed, edgy look. With thick hair, sometimes you want your hair down but let's be honest, it can get a bit much - so stick half of it up and we're on to a winner.
I use the Babbyliss Pro 235 Smooth Straighteners, reaching up to 235 degrees, which are amazing for thick hair. You can get the job done in less than ten minutes, and my hair feels so soft afterwards.
When I'm heading out for the night, I like to go for the wavy look. With thick hair, it's usually quite voluminous anyway and waves can look great. I recently got sent The Ruby Curling Iron*, which has a rotating barrel. It creates lovely natural waves but it's a long old job.
