Tips for Medium Thick Hairstyles

What does thick hair mean?

Basically having thick hair means having a lots of it but what does that mean? Having a high hair count (i.e. a certain number of hairs per square inch on your scalp) doesn’t necessarily make your hair thick overall. For example,  if the hairs won’t grow long enough, then your hair will not be thick from a styling perspective even if you have plenty of hairs.

Thick hair is referring to the diameter of an individual hair strand.  The density (number of hair strands in a square inch) is “a lot” of hair.

The difference of thickness and thinness?

Thickness and thinness doesn’t mean more of less strands of hair.  People with thin hair seem to have see through hair. It’s very thin and light hair. Like old men with balding, they had thin hair.

People with thick hair rarely never go bald. The benefits of thick hair is that it’s lucious and full and bouncy. Thin hair usually ends up in balding, but it’s very easy to straighten because theres not that much of the hair there.

If you want to see the differences look up pictures with girls that have thin and thick hair. I think that the main difference of thick and thin hair is the strands of hair are bigger and smaller in radius. It’s sorta hard to explain. A hairdresser would know how to explain it better.

What exactly makes thick?

It would be any the following below :

  • Strong hair or individually thick hairs. The diameter of a human hair ranges from 17 to 181 micrometers which is less than one 100th of an inch. Obviously, if you have a greater diameter, your hair overall will be thicker.
  • A relatively high terminal length. This matters from a styling and wearing point of view. Your hair can be extremely thick but won’t look or feel thick unless most of the hair grows as long as you keep it cut. More on this below.

Tips To Stop Hair Loss & Keep Healthy Thick Hair :

  2. Essential oils & tea . To stimulate scalp circulation, massage the scalp with rosemary essential oil or rinse hair with tea made from sage.
  3. Comb or brush your hair and scalp gently in the morning and at night. This helps break up hardened oils (sebum) that are clogging your hair follicles. Doing this alone has produced new hair growth. Do not over do combing or brushing.
