If you've got long, thick hair, then you'll know what a blessing it can be. And what a curse. Everyone you meet will tell you how lucky you are to be blessed with so much hair and the ability to grow it past your shoulders, but it doesn't feel like that when you're waking up at 6 a.m. to blow-dry it before work! (And chances are, it's still not 100 percent dry.) Thick hair is not always manageable, and it is often time consuming to style, but when it looks good, it looks really good — sometimes we can even get curls to stay put.
