    I am a super coarse, the you can floss with your hair without breaking type. I love my texture, I love how heavy my hair is even though I have neck pains from it and tend to ear a single braid down the back most of the time.

    My son and husband have fine straight hair. I don't really need to brush my son's hair (shoulder length about), his hair looks amazing no matter what. And the softness seriously I didn't know hair could feel like that. So soft and and shiny. My daughter and I have coarse hair, although our hair grows a lot faster than my son's we always end up doing his hair and petting it and playing with it. It's just so soft and pretty .

    Thought of one today (other than softness, even though that's an awesome pro), though it may not be a pro for everyone. It seems to me (and I think at least one other person said something on here to this effect as well?) that "wispies" are much easier to achieve with fine hair. I don't know about you, but I like having soft, wispy bits that come out of my braids, half-ups or what have you. No idea why, but they just seem to look nice. They may not be to everyone's tastes, though, of course.

    Things I consider pros:
    1. Virtually weightless and light hair
    2. Still very dense so I can pull off thick looking buns and braids
    3. If I want to go for a super sleek look I just wet my hair
    4. Chemicals take to my hair really quick. Which means I need less
    processing time and can be finished faster.
    5. When my hair has adequate moisture levels, it literally feels like
    a soft fluffy plush blanket.
    6.If I did a good job detangling in the shower, after my hair has
    reached a certain level of dampness I can just bend my head over
    and shake my hair out, and it’s all fluffed out,dry, and tangle-free (For now).
    7. No headaches from updos
    8. Since I have fine, but also thick hair, I don’t need any sticks, scrunchies,
    clips, or Bobby pins. My hair just stays up on its own. Although I still use these
    accessories for style, because I like them.

    For me a pro of having fine hair is that it doesn’t take too long to dry 😊

    No headaches, no scalp pain. my hair is SO heavy that I just can't wear a bun for longer than 4-6 hours... And I have never managed to get my hair longer than waist because of the headaches. Even with hair down.

    Yes but a bun? iii at waist just barely cut it for me. My buns only became comfortable at hip with iii hair, Wusel. So maybe it is just a case of needing more length? I got headaches from straining the hair at waist to just get it up. That is why I wore a peacock twist aka logroll later as it grew for such a long time, with a plain claw clip.

    Very silky & shiny. Often only fine hair has these qualities.

    I have F/M hair but more on the F side.

    I like how fluffy and voluminous my hair gets due to the lightness of it and the "air pockets". It looks thicker than it is when it's down. And doesn't feel heavy at all (even when it was around hip length).

    Buns and braids look delicate and elegant.

    My hair is very soft and is easy to detangle due to the slippery nature of the strands.

    Dries faster after a wash.

    I have cute soft whispies framing my face.

    When i have it down or in a half up i feel like a fairy or an elf. Haha.

    All sorts of hairstyles are available much earlier than to those with thick hair.
    My wife can hardly get her hair into a ponytail because it's thick slippery pacific islander hair, and it slips out within the hour, whereas I can get my hair to stay in a ponytail all day. We're both at chin length.
    I can do cinnabuns and a messy LWB at APL while I think I've heard some can't do a LWB until HIP! I can't begin to imagine...
    I'll take my unimpressive braid any day, thick haired longhairs get nothing but the utmost respect from me!

    I guess I answered more based on thickness in general rather than thickness of strands, but the point stands from my end. I have finer strands and only a medium amount of it.
