Women with thick hair need to stay on top of their regular maintenance and hair care routine for luscious locks. As long as these products are used, thick hair should stay soft and hydrated.

Look for shampoos containing ceramides and proteins. Ceramides are an essential part of the structure of skin and hair, as well as protein. It can help rebuild broken and damaged hair strands. If possible, stick to cool or warm showers which suck less moisture from hair.

A leave-in conditioner provides more protection and conditioning for thick hair. Make sure this product has plenty of protein to further rebuild hair strands.

Whether using a flat iron or just brushing fingers through hair before setting out for the day, a styling air helps keep hair strands under control. Jojoba oil works to smooth out the hair shaft and provides sun protection, and more wheat protein in this product keeps hair strong.

Set aside one day a week for a deep conditioning treatment containing hydrolyzed elastin or olive oil. Hide covered hair under a shower cap for about thirty minutes before rinsing the treatment out. This treatment gives dry, thick hair a touchable softness.
