    Default Is you hair thicker on one side?

    My hair has always been thicker/more dense on my left side and the discrepency is made worse by my preferring to part on the right side therefore making more hair fall to the left and making the right side look rather thin.

    Sometimes I compensate by parting in the middle or parting to the opposite side (which bothers me immensely - my hair is constantly falling in my face that way).

    Is this normal for most people, that you have more hair on one side? Does it drive anyone else crazy?

    I wear mine parted in the middle and it's about even.

    I tend to wear a side part on the left, so it looks like I have a bit more hair on the right. I guess I'm just so used to it that it doesn't bother me much.

    You're not alone! My hair is thicker and grows faster on the left side of my head. I noticed it when I didn't trim for a year- the left side was noticeably longer! I think this is pretty common, just like it's common to have slightly different length fingers and such.
    I don't think I'm asymmetrical enough for anyone else to notice by looking at it, but sometimes I part it on the side to even it out anyway.

    Yes. And the side it's thicker on grows more slowly. Talk about weird!

    I have to trim my left side every once in a blue moon when it gets way noticeably longer than my right side.

    However...I often wear a part slightly off-center (with the longer, left-hand side swept over to the right, hence compensating with a bit of "longer" hair) so it's not really as noticeable until quite a few months go by. After that there's really no denying it.

    I have this EXACT problem. I tried parting in the center and the other side, but cowlicks prevent it from laying decently. I have had this problem all my life when I remember and look at old pictures. Hopefully your new part will work better than mine did!

    I guess it's true........misery loves company! So glad to know I'm not the only one who feels lopsided. LOL!

    Yep, it's normal. I think mine is thicker on the left, but I always forget.

    I just found out today that my right side has less hair than my left side. I made a center part and did double buns and one was massive and the other looked like a normal size.

    All my hair is in the back. I really have thin hair on both sides. If I make a braid the middle bunch of hair is huge and the side bunches are tiny.
