The only solution to this problem is to use a dry shampoo; the dry shampoo helps to clean your thick tresses perfectly without even having to wet them.

4. Moroccanoil Treatment Original
We have mentioned before that people with thick hair locks suffer a lot from dryness and frizziness, and some random day you might feel the dryness even more. That’s why hair experts suggest that you treat your tresses with oil massage every now and then to not only fight frizz and dryness but also to keep them healthy and manageable.

Volume is one thing you don’t need in your thick hairs as by nature you are blessed with gorgeous volume in your tresses.
