The Best Hair Solutions for Coarse, Thick Hair

At Tease Hair Boutique, we know that all hair types are not the same. Thin, thick, course, smooth, fine, curly, straight; each clients hair is unique and we love to help find the right products, services and haircuts for your specific hair needs. This month, we’ll be diving into the top solutions for managing and styling coarse, thick hair!

First, let’s cover what exactly it means to have coarse hair. Naturally coarse hair simply means that each strand is thicker in diameter and more texturized than other types of hair. If your hair takes a long time to dry and you can feel a strand of your hair when pinched between two fingers, chances are your hair is on the coarser side. You may also notice that each strand feels a bit textured instead of smooth, a very common trait of coarse hair.

Now let’s look at what it means to have thick hair. Despite “coarse” and “thick” sometimes being used interchangeably, the two descriptions are indicative of different hair traits. We know that coarse hair is in reference to the circumference and texture of the hair strand itself, and thickness relates to the volume of hair - or the number of hair follicles you have on your scalp. Thicker hair simply means you have more hair strands by volume, and coarse hair refers to the makeup of the hair strand itself.

Each individuals hair type is unique to them, and can vary in texture and thickness dependent on a number of factors like genetics, diet, environment, and more. Possessing coarse, thick hair means you have bigger, texturized hair strands and a lot of them! When not styled or cared for properly, coarse, thick hair can be dry, frizzy, and poofy. Fear not - we’ve compiled a list of our favorite products, treatments, and services to make your coarse, thick hair look healthy and shiny!

The Mizani Line

Dependent on your texture and if your hair is curly or straight, Mizani products can help tame frizz and make coarse hair look shiny and smooth! If you’re not sure which product is best for you, ask your stylist at Tease Hair Boutique for a recommendation.

Professional Blowouts

The upside to having coarse hair is that it holds style very well!

Tease Hair Boutique offers a buy three, get one free blow dry package to make visiting the salon often affordable and convenient!

Layer Your Hair

Thick, coarse hair can often feel unmanageable due to the volume alone. To help combat the daily frustration and keep hair looking polished and stylish, our stylists recommend layering your hair for added movement. Talk to your stylist at Tease Hair Boutique for cut recommendations for your specific hair type.

Use a Silk pillowcase

‘Cooler than the other side of the pillow’ takes on new meaning when it comes to using a silk pillowcase. Unlike other bedding materials, silk combats frizz by helping your hair retain moisture and providing a friction-free environment while you sleep. When shopping for a silk pillowcase, make sure to look for authentic, high-grade silk like this one from Sephora!

Amika Flat Iron

If you’re looking for a tool to help style your coarse, thick hair - look no further! The Amika Flat Iron allows you to style your hair while maintaining moisture. Using a negative ion projector, this flat iron streams millions of cuticle-sealing negative ions to help lock in moisture and reduce frizz. Make sure to always use a heat protectant before styling your hair.

If you’re still unsure what best for your hair, your Tease Hair Boutique stylist is here to listen to your specific hair needs and find a styling solution that’s right for you.
