Having thick hair can be a blessing and a curse. It’s beautiful, but it can also be difficult to manage and maintain. From using a de-frizzing hair mask to swearing off hair-stiffening products, there are a variety of solutions that can help make your thick strands more manageable.
Thinning out your hair is one of the more permanent ways to solve this issue. However, it can also be a risky process that may result in severe hair damage and uneven results. So, it’s important to consult with a qualified stylist before trying this at home.
There are many different methods that can be used to thin out your hair, including layering, snipping off pieces of the bottom layers of your hair, and getting a haircut with long or rounded layers. Some people choose to use chemical treatments or other tools to thin out their hair, but this can cause severe damage and leave you with a lopsided head of hair.
To get the best results, start with dry hair and a clean scalp. Ensure that the thinning shears are pointed upwards and then cut a 3-inch section of your hair midway up the length. Next, move the thinning shears forward and backwards through this section until you reach the desired level of thickness. Repeat this step for each remaining section of your hair until all sections are thinned. Always remember to comb out each section of thinned hair to see how it looks and to compare it to the rest of your hair before making any more cuts.
