Tips to Manage Thick Hair
To create a stylish hairstyle, you should know how to manage thick hair. As thick hair is prone to frizz and dryness, these problems need to be addressed before you style your hair.

Problem: Hair lacks shine.
Solution: Use a silicone-based serum on damp hair. You can also opt for a clear gloss treatment at a salon to restore shine.
Problem: Hair is dull and lifeless.
Solution: Dry hair looks dull and lifeless. So a good idea is to opt for a hot-oil treatment. This will give you smooth and shiny locks.
Problem: Hair at the front and crown is flat.
Solution: Use hair mousse only at the crown area to create volume.
With the right haircut and hairstyle, thick hair can look lovely too. You just need to know how to tame your unruly hair with the correct hair styling products.
