    Well, I'm not iii thick, but I'm about 3.5"... Can I still be here??? I'll bring cheese...

    It also frustrates me that they use "Fine" when they mean "Thin". I agree with rhubarbarin, I think it's just because most people don't want to think of their hair as thin because it carries a negative connotation.

    Yup.. mine is both fine and thick too!
    I have a never-ending tangle on the right side that drives me nuts!
    After washing I like to use Charles Worthington Dream hair serum which makes my hair easier to comb when it's dry.
    I also use coconut oil, but too much makes it very lank.

    Fine, thick, board straight and still struggling. It takes me about 18 times as long as my curly headed sister to do a decent S&D.
    after henna, no 'cones, no sulfates, my hair no longer tries to strangle me in my sleep. I guess we can be friends now.

    Oh, the tangles. Aren't they fun? I keep my hair up a lot for exactly that reason.

    Well, I have very coarse and thick hair. But, because my hair is also pin straight, the very sleekness of my hair makes it behave as if I had fine and straight hair.

    I have many of the same issues you have florenonite. My scalp gets oily very quickly, like within a day so I really do need to rinse my scalp every night to keep the sebum in control. COing works the best for me personally, since my hair is again very coarse it really hates shampoo or anything with harsh detergents. I am well aware of using powder to soak up the excess sebum on your scalp, however for me personally I like water on my scalp so CO rinsing everyday works for me.

    I have fine hair, and have been told by many people that it's "very thick", but it's barely 4" in circumference.

    Where did this thread come from? I have fine, thick hair and oh, the tangles are horrible! And with my curls I think that makes my tangling problem worse.

    Count me in. I tend to like my hair type okay, and one major bonus for us fine and thick hair girls is shedding issues! Studying for the bar wasw one of the most stressful things I've ever done. I (and every other girl I knew) started shedding like crazy. I think if I had had another hair type I might have really suffered. As it was, I am sure I lost some circumferance, but you really would never know looking at it.

    That said, sometimes it feels like I have so much volume I just can't deal and I want to throw it back in an elastic pony tail holder (Nooooo!).

    I'm using a shampoo bar with CA rinse right now. Kimberlily's defrizz spray works really well for detangling if I use enough aloe in the mix. It doesn't weigh my hair down too much or make it too oily.
    Haven't tried any masks or treatments really. Just too lazy or maybe I won't sit down long enough to do it?? What would you recommend for a treatment?
    Nothing eggy or mayonaisy please. I did try that once. It stunk up my hair and was horrible to remove.
    I use coconut oil the night before a wash. I used to use it as a leave-in, but found that weighed it down, so now I just use plenty the night before I wash it and leave it in overnight.
