Solutions for Thick Hair | Hair Challenges




Thick hair is often confused with the density of hair when actually hair thickness indicates the width of a single hair strand. Hair density on the other hand is the measure of the number of hair strands per square inch of the scalp.

The best way to check the density of your hair is to measure the circumference of a ponytail (if your hair is long enough) when the hair is tied up. If you have low-density hair, the circumference will be less than two inches. medium-density hair is two to three inches, and high-density hair is four or more inches in circumference. 

To measure for hair thickness, pluck a strand of hair from your head, ideally from a spot that is well endowed, so avoid any face-framing pieces, and compare the strand to a sewing thread. If your hair is as wide, or just slightly under width, as a sewing thread, then you have thick hair. If your hair is much slimmer than the thread, your hair is on the thin side.


Thick hair is the envy of many people with thin hair, as they turn to products and solutions to make their hair appear thicker and fuller. 

People with thicker hair also have daily struggles and hair challenges when trying to maintain their hair. Similarly to people suffering from thin, dry, or oily hair, many natural and lifestyle trends can have an impact on the hair condition such as:

  • Genetics
  • Aging
  • Poor diet
  • Harsh hair products
  • Chemicals
  • Medical conditions

When styling hair people with thick or coarse hair face many challenges when trying to get the style they desire when the hair just doesn’t want to comply. This is the number one challenge for people with thick hair. 

Thick hair is regarded by many as healthy and strong but also has challenges with roughness and messiness when styling. Anyone with thick hair can relate to this, as it can take time to get the shape and style you’re looking for whilst battling the messiness of thick hair strands. 

Thick hair strands tend to feature the thickest diameter in comparison to all other hair types. Unlike most other types, thick hair is known to be as thick as that of a sewing thread. If thick hair is taken care of and in great condition, hair can appear beautifully healthy, strong, and thick. As with any hair type, the key here is to know how you take care of your hair, with the effective use of the right hair care products and solutions.
