How Men’s Hair Thickness And Density Differs
Did you know that the thickness of male hair depends upon the volume of individual hairs on the head and can vary anywhere from 50 microns to 100 microns?
How the hair then behaves is related not to the amount but to the shape of the individual shafts.
- Asian hair is typically round and lies straight and flat
- Caucasian hair tends to be slightly oval so it can be fine
- Afro-Caribbean hair is flat yet curved, which provides the curl
But it’s not just ethnicity that affects male hair, it’s also the natural color. Blondes have more hair, and redheads the least.
Thick and Unruly Hair? – Do Care!
Thin-haired guys will find it hard to sympathize with their thick-haired bros. But wavy hair can be an annoyance and bring with it styling issues. The sheer volume of hair can make it challenging to manage.
You need to focus on taking out some of the weight, so go for slightly shorter styles like short choppy quiffs and textured crops.
It’s also a good idea to allow thick hair to air dry naturally. Blow drying can increase hair volume and make it look even thicker than it already is. If you’re short on time and blow drying is a must, try sticking to a cool setting and make sure you use N4s Super Comb Prep & Protect to nourish and hydrate the hair and leave it tangle free.
Best Products For Men With Thick Hair
Step away from anything volumizing for a start. Unruly heads of hair respond better to clays and pastes like N4s Texture Paste, the ultimate super styler to sculpt and shape thicker hair while delivering long-lasting staying power and a matte finish.
An excellent, deeply hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner to lock in essential moisture is also essential. We recommend N4s Hydrate Collection, specially formulated to repair damage and restore hair health.
With prolonged and regular use, this combination of N4 paraben-free and sulfate free products will help soften the hair and change its texture over time.
Styling Your Wavy Mane
Not everyone can pull off the natural, just got out of bed, messy look, but with the right products, it can be an effortlessly cool style. Think tousled like Harry Styles as opposed to uncontrollable with Don King!
If your hair is naturally a little bit on the longer side, try tying it up loosely overnight and when you wake up, untie and it should deliver louche, laissez-faire locks that are low maintenance.
For long-lasting oomph and to maximize your natural wavy style, invest in a sugar or sea salt spray. We love N4s Sugar Texturizing Spray. OK, so you might not want to recreate beachy waves, but we bet you want touchably soft and perfectly undone tresses that are just crying out to be caressed.
