Struggles Only Girls With Thick Hair Will Understand

Hey girl hey. And boy.

I have thick hair. And by thick hair, I don’t mean those fake Pantene commercials or google images. Seriously though, when I search up ‘thick hair’, I get like the tamest hair ever.

My hair on the other side is the type of hair no one can brush through. The type that makes elastics tremble. The type that tangles up no matter what I do. This is starting to sound like a novel but you get the idea.

I’m really hoping I’m not alone because everywhere I go, everyone’s hair looks like a Pantene commercial like how?? Please teach me rn. Leave your hair routine in the comments and let’s get started. 😂


  1. Swim Caps

I got inspired to write this post from my Why I Hate Swimming post so we’ll start off with this one. If you have thick hair, it’s literally guaranteed that swimming caps won’t fit your hair. They’ll always end up sliding off and that’s IF they come on in the first place. If you haven’t seen my last post (*cough*clickhere*cough*), I mentioned that hair gets really tangled and smelly without swimming caps so they’re pretty essential. They should totally start selling jumbo swim caps for thick haired girls.

okay but does this actually work?


2. Hair Claws

Speaking of things that don’t fit in my hair, a hair claw is another one. Hair claws look so good on other people but when it comes to me, it just won’t budge. And it doesn’t help that they come with every Ardene surprise pack.

3. Impossible To Comb

Everyone has it easy with their thin barbie hair while the rest of us have to suffer with tangles that stay stuck forever. It’s the worst and I just end up not bothering which results in even MORE tangles. Why is thick hair so hard to tame?!!

4. Forever Frizzy

Every time it does get straightened (once in a blue moon), it’s STILL frizzy and gets tangled really easily after that. So I’m basically stuck being Mufasa, but just with a smoother mane. 😂 Plus, like I said before, thick hair gets tangled really easily so anything like a shower or a swim can ruin your hard work. And did I mention how hard it is to straighten thick hair? There’s like a billion layers that need to be combed, sprayed and straightened and even then, I still don’t look like Selena Gomez. 😂

5. Hair All Over The Shower

This probably applies to thin hair too but you get like double the amount of hair in the shower. It’s really annoying and my mom gets mad because she likes the house clean so I’ll try to clean more often. 😂 But hey, at least we’re not balding anytime soon (hopefully).

6. Blow-drying 

Blow-drying takes for-ev-er!! I just let it air dry now which is probably why it’s so frizzy. But seriously, my hair would take hours under a blow-dryer and STILL be wet. There’s just way too much water soaked in. We’re literally spongeheads! 😂

7. No Tumblr Hairstyles Ever Work

I’ve talked about this in my Gorgeous Hairstyles That Never Work On My Hair post last year but thick hair is way too tangled and thick to do anything. And some people think the more hair, the more space for hairstyles which is totally wrong because ain’t nobody got time to french braid all those layers. A bun will do. 😂

8. Salon Appointments Take Ages

Last year I tried to get my hair cut and straightened at the salon and I kid you not, they had to get THREE workers to finish my hair. 😂 Thankfully, they didn’t charge per hour but it was such a pain and they were probably shaking their heads the whole time.

9. Hair Brushes And Accessories Break Trying To Style It

Honestly guys, I can’t even begin to count the number of times a hair tie failed me. Too many times. Too many times.

10. Dora Haircuts

And when you finally do end up cutting it to lessen the struggles, you end up with a Dora head. #Grade4Throwback

And finally, here are a few struggles Google has to share.

Anddd that’s all for today. Even though thick hair is a struggle to tame, I’m still thankful that my hair is healthy and will still be able to spare if I lose any in the future. #thecupishalffull 😂

Do you have thick hair?

Do you relate to any of these?

And if your hair is thin, any thin hair struggles?

What was your worst haircut? 😂

I’ll see you guys in my next post.

Bayyy. 💞

    Hair all over the bathroom? I think you mean, hair all over EVERYWHERE haha my boyfriend tolerates it well though (: he says he loves it when I put my hair up, but it’s so heavy, the closest thing to having it “up” is a braid! I found a great detangler (thank God) from Amika called The Wizard and it truly is magical (:

    Although I don’t have tons of hair the strands themselves are thick so I totally relate with these! Especially my hair being forever frizzy. When I was about 12 I cut off all my ear to this very short bob length and it was just a poor on my head😂❤

    I know the struggle of when a hair band is too tight for another loop but too loose without it! It’s so annoying, especially when it’s your favourite hair band that you’ve stretched out!!

      IKR IT’S SO ANNOYING!! And then when it’s lose, it feels droopy and when it’s tight, your face is like suffocating. 😂 UGH I had this scrunchie that I wore for 8 months straight and one day the scrunch just spread out and I was stuck with this long band that is too long to be a hair tie but too short to be a headband 😭😭

    BRO I had the Dora head when I was young and I didn’t even have curly hair at the time. Idk it just curled up as I got older and probably because of tampering with it so much. BUT UGH I HAVE TIMES WHERE MY HAIR LOOKS SO GOOD AND THEN I THINK OH LEMME BRUSH IT AND #REGRET

      SAME but mine still poofed back then too lol 😂 but my hair was straight up until grade 6 where I guess puberty decided to knock on the door and deliver tangled curly hair 😤. Remember last year with my “I bet if Badr was texting you” snap 😂, I had really poofy curly hair lmao. HAHAHAHAH IKR whenever you brush it, the frizz decides to expand like 10 times for some reason. 😂


  7. Arabella says:

    My hair is straight but thick, so I have to kdeep it short and up all the time. It takes a while to brush it, and elastics ALWAYS break! My sister has long, curly, thick hair and yet she’s able to keep it down every single day?!? How!?!!?! She barely evenm needs to comb it! XD

    I have pretty thin hair, which comes with its own struggles like the fear of going bald when you see hair clumps in the shower 😂 The worst haircut I got was when I cut it neck length and I looked like lord Farquaad for the rest of summer. Not my best moment.

    IT’S SO TRUEEE!! My hair is thick and curly (and a stupid dirty blonde color which is why I dyed it red) and I have to put it into a bun most days! I’ve actually resorted to spending an hour blowing my hair out the night before because otherwise, it’s a mess. And EVERYONE else seems to just be able to flip their hair and put it in a perfect bun, like WHY MEEEE? I keep wishing for straight brown hair so a) people will stop making blonde jokes around me, b) stop telling me I look like goldilocks (I don’t appreciate being compared to a fictitious girl who should be charged with breaking and entering), c) I can get it to look passable without too much effort, and d) stop having to just grin awkwardly when people ask m why I’m the only blonde in the family. My younger sister is adopted, but people have actually thought it was me who was adopted ’cause I’m a lone blonde in a family of brunettes.
    Great posy!

      SAME! Noo dirty blonde looks great. Blonde hair is pretty but I can’t imagine myself with it. 😂 Same with mine but I’m too lazy to straighten it so it’s just a tangled blob. 😂 IKR buns usually work well with me but lately they started to look clumpy and my hair tie can only wrap around it once :'(. Aww really? But seriously, every blonde girl I met was popular. 😂 HAHA TRUE most fairytales have bad lessons. 😂 Ohh wow – well hey, that makes you unique, right? Idk I’m just trying to look on the bright side. And brown is a pretty dull colour so blonde is the way to go. 😂
      Neat commy!

    Lol! I can totally relate to this. I hate wearing swimming caps; you’re right, they should totally create caps for thicker hair! And I have the same problem drying my hair. I don’t really have a “solution”, I just cut my hair short or get it layered, but it’s still far from tamed. 😂

      Yas welcome to the squad. UGH right? They seriously need to get started. Yesss I always just cut it short but ugh I need to straighten my hair before going because they’ll spend a solid three days detangling my hair xD

        no problem! but for real it’s like i want short hair because it’s way easier to maintain BUT 1. i end up looking like a wannabe dora the explorer (don’t get me wrong she’s an iconic queen but her hair uh-) 2. in the heat with dora hair sweat trickles down to your neck all the time, it’s summer hot and you can’t even tie it up properly because it’s too short!!!!!🤧 so it’s really a choice between choosing high maintenance frizzy long thick hair or sweaty sticky dora hair LOL
