The main struggle with thick hair is the maintenance! From finding proper clean, sulfate free products, to blow drying and styling, it’s a long process and sometimes we just aren’t up for the routine so, we cut corners in a an attempt to get the job done sooner! But guess what, that makes it all worse.
By cutting corners or using sub-par quality products, you are actually creating more work for yourself which then results into a cringe worthy frizzy finish. Not to worry. Take a step back, breathe and let’s talk about the solutions.
With all the talk in the media these days about Clean products you’d assume that quality, clean, sulfate free shampoo would be easy to find. Well, you know what they say about assumptions. Clean beauty is the idea that products should be formulated without the toxic ingredients that are found in the vast majority of hair care or beauty products on the market today. Which can make finding a clean, sulfate free shampoo more difficult then you might imagine.
Sulfates are detergents that can dry strip the natural oils out of both your hair and your scalp leaving you straight hair looking limp and lifeless. Sulfates are unnecessary and sadly found in the majority of over the counter shampoos. Luckily there are brands like Reform Beauty who’ve created entire lines of clean, toxin free, sulfate free hair care products
So now that we’ve covered the need for clean products for your thick hair let's talk about specific products that treat some of the main issues with thick hair. If you are like the majority of thick hair beauties, you find yourself fighting frizz more than those with thin hair. Investing in a sulfate free shampoo and a treatment masque can save you time and money in the long run. A hydrating deep conditioning masque once a week and using a sulfate free shampoo in your shower will really help your thick hair stay smooth and keep the frizz away.
When you have thick hair, you have more hairs to actually reach. This means you need to take the time to make sure your shampoo and other products are distributed evenly. Take the extra time to massage the products into the ends of your hair, especially when you’re using the hair oil or treatment masque.
Additionally, be extra careful with “sea salt sprays.” These tend to dry the hair out and can create more frizz than curls. If you’re wanting to get those beachy waves be sure to use a sulfate free spray like the clean wave spray from Reform Beauty to get the look without the crunch or frizz.
Thick hair do care! Take care of that glorious mane.
