<H3> Thick hair in men – these are the challenges
So while thick hair brings many benefits, there are also quite a few challenges. Thick hair is stubborn and sometimes difficult to tame. Sometimes it jumps in all directions. And when you’ve been riding your bike with a headwind, get it back in shape. Lint is also a common problem among men with a thick head of hair. And especially when the hairstyle gets longer, sometimes the hair can even have too much volume.

<H2> These 5 tips & advice will help you with thick hair
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make you look stylish with your thick hair. Below are the best solutions when you possess a thick head of hair.

#1 Get your thick hair thinned at a professional hairdresser
Sometimes thick hair can be too voluminous, especially as it grows longer. Therefore, ask your hairdresser if it is wise to thin your hair regularly. This can help control volume, make hair feel less heavy and make it easier to style. With dry and curly hair, thinning is not wise, as it will cause your hair to frizz even further.

#2 Choose the right hairstyle
The right hairstyle can make a world of difference for men with thick hair. For example, a side parting or center parting is a common recipe for men with thick hair. The undercut, bro flow or a pretty crest is also a great hairstyle for men with thick and coarse hair. In addition, you can choose to grow it just long.

#3 Know what to do and what not to do with thick hair
When you have thick and coarse hair it is smart to take a few things into account. In any case, never go out the door with wet hair, but make sure your hair is styled with a good wax in well-dried hair. If you go out the door with wet hair, it looks like your hair has exploded. So always dry your hair with a blow dryer after showering or swimming.

#4 Choose the right care products
Want to make sure your thick hair is easier to style? Then it is smart to use a few drops of hair oil (18.21 man made oil) daily. A hair mask (Wonder Spray) is also an excellent solution. These products will make your hair finer so it is easier to style. Especially for dry and curly hair, we highly recommend this!

#5 Use the best styling products for thick hair
Thick hair can be very difficult to style, but with the right hair products for men, you’re going to succeed. First of all, use a good comb, with coarse teeth. This makes it easier to comb your hair into shape. Do not use a comb with fine teeth, as it is guaranteed to get stuck or worse, you will pull the hair out of your head. In addition, ignore the various styling powders, or dry and mat waxes. With these products, your hair will fill out fuller, thicker and heavier, when that’s exactly what you don’t want.

What does work well are professional waxes with a (light) shine and strong hold. For example, the best products for this are Hairbond’s Shaper Toffee and Mattifier Cement. The Shaper gives a smooth and firm hold and is very easy to apply. This wax is also perfect for thick curly hair and easy to restyle. If you really want a powerful wax for your short, thick head of hair then the Mattifier Cement is your perfect product! This one gives a lot of texture and keeps it under control all day.
