Thick hair can be a blessing. It can pull off styles that look pretty amazing, it looks luxurious when well managed, and it’s the envy of everyone with thin, fine hair up there. They may not say it, but it’s the truth.
Still, having really thick hair doesn’t always feel like a blessing. In fact, it can feel like quite the burden. Every girl born with more than enough on top of her head has experienced everything from waiting forever for it to dry it after a wash day, spending hours upon hours at the salon getting it untangled, cleaned and dry, to struggling with home styling.
Like anything worth having, thick hair takes work. And even though your arms are exhausted and your neck can feel heavy, having thick, healthy hair is a great thing. It just doesn’t feel like it when you’re going through these struggles that only women with thick hair understand.
