It is important to be patient when managing thick hair and allow the necessary time to style it. Accessories such as clips and elastic bands strong enough to hold thick, heavy hair should be used even if they are not as decorative as the more flimsy items. Styling tools such as strong brushes and high-powered hair dryers are important. The hair should be kept at a length long enough to manage, especially if it is curly. Similarly, short bangs may be too unruly to manage. Braids are style options for people with long, thick hair, and they are easy to manage.

    How can one get white blonde hair?

    A:

    Ultra-light blonde hair that is so thoroughly bleached that it appears white or silvery is difficult to achieve and, for most hair, requires thorough bleaching that many professional stylists are reluctant to perform because it may be damaging to hair, but a cool whitish tone can be achieved with bleached blonde hair through the use of toning products or purple shampoo. Toners will help those with blonde hair remove warm tones, including brassy shades such as red, yellow or orange tones, from the hair, leaving a cool blonde shade that is closer to white than a more yellowy, warm blonde color. Purple shampoo and conditioner can also give users a similar result, toning down blonde colors to be cooler and closer to a silver or white shade.
