22 Great Hairstyles for Thick Hair

Although thick hair is the envy of a lot of women, those who have it know that it can also pose quite a few challenges. Thick hair is super heavy. Thick hair takes forever (and ever) to dry. Thick hair also requires more than one bottle of dye if you want to color it at home and straightening it seems like an eternal process.

On the other hand, one of the best things about thick hair is there are so many different styling options to choose from. Take these, for instance…

If you’re a black woman with natural thick hair and you’ve never tried a twist out before, don’t wait another moment. While it’s wet, put your hair in twists or plaits (with the help of a little product). Once it dries, unravel your hair and tease with your fingers. It really is a hot look.
