Co-washing or conditioning hair just means that no shampoo is used, but rather hair is cleansed with just one product. This is a great alternative for women who have naturally thick, curly, and textured hair which is difficult to tame.


Even though thick hair takes a long time to dry naturally, put down the styling tools and give your hair a break (at least once a week). Apply a nourishing oil to your ends, and allow your locks to air-dry especially on a hot day which should help the overall process.


Invest in a few extra-hold clips and elastics which are suited to thicker hair. Sometimes bobby pins and other flimsy hair accessories aren’t suited to thick hair, so don’t waste your money on them!

Organic shampoo

Use organic shampoo and conditioning products which are sulfate-free and won’t leave your hair looking and feeling too frizzy. If you have a sensitive scalp, these products are perfect since they aren’t filled with chemicals which can further irritate damaged skin.


Use tools and products which are designed specially for girls and guys with thick hair. A boar bristle brush or wide-tooth comb are ideal since they won’t damage your ends, promote frizzy hair.

Hair oils

Tame unruly hair by using a hydrating oil at least once a week while your hair is still damp. Not only does this make it easier to style, but it moisturises hair and keeps it looking and feeling soft and smooth.
