Okay, I have thick and slightly curly hair. So thick that I've never met anybody with hair that is thicker. It is as thick as it looks and twice as heavy. My hairstylist is a really talented man who can work miracles on most hair. I went to him thinking he would work his magic and tame my hair too. Instead he told me that I had the thickest hair he had ever seen and there was no point in working against it. He told me that layers would only make it puff out more, this is true. So he told me that I need to keep it long to weigh it down, so I've been onto something all these years.
