Accessories for Thick Hair

Updated on September 7, 2014

Thick Hair Accessories

All my life I have been on a hunt for thick hair accessories! When I was a child, my mother would talk about my braids as thick as ropes. As an adult, every stylist I visited would remark, "You sure do have a lot of hair!"

In the 1980s, like a lot of women, I decided to perm my hair. It would take at least two sets of perm rods to handle all of my thick hair. One stylist had to actually purchase extra rods before she could give me a perm!

Then I became a mother and I ended up with two daughters who also had very thick hair. Those sweet little baby clips never worked! We always needed barrettes that would take huge amounts of hair.

When your hair is as thick as my daughters' and mine, finding hair accessories that work can be a big challenge! That is why I am putting together this page. I wanted a place women with thick hair can go to find clips, barrettes and hair ties that are suitable for our heavy tresses.

So here are some of my favorite accessories for thick hair!

Keep a bunch of these clips on hand to help you create great styles!


Clips for Thick Hair - Small Hair Accessories with a Big Grip on Thick Hair!

I have used these jaw clips for making a bun. The key in using these is to twist a section of hair and then use the clip to hold the twist. Do not try to use the clip as a barrette and stick all of your hair in there. Just twist and then use the clip to secure the twist.

These clips are also perfect for sectioning hair while cutting or styling. So convenient and versatile to have on hand anytime you want to hold some thick hair!

These pins are 3 inches long. They hold thick hair surprisingly well! You have to try them! Other colors are available.


The Secret to Making Up Dos with Thick Hair - Hair Pins for Thick Hair

For years I struggled with putting my thick hair up. I always loved the look of a bun or French twist, but the tiny hairpins from the drug store would pop right back out of my bun.

Then one day, these straight hair pins changed my life! Three or four of them will hold my bun all day!

Hair Ties for Thick Hair

If your hair ties break, or just refuse to stay in your thick hair, check out these hair elastics!

My hairdresser told me we need to stay away from any hair ties that have metal on them. These do not. They are soft all the way around! We love them!

We always keep a good supply of hair ties in all different colors on hand in the bathroom closet. This way, when one breaks or get lost, it is easy to replace. The girls like matching their hair elastics to their outfits, and with lots of colors on hand, it is easy to do that too!

      I have very thick hair. About 10years ago I lost it to alpaca but it all came back in just as thick as before.

      Yes, I do. Every hairdresser I ever saw said exactly the same thing to me they said to you. I had one hairdresser for seventeen years, until she retired to deepen her lifelong love affair with art. She asked me to always remind the front desk to give her an extra half hour to cut and style my hair. The second thing every hairdresser said to me was, "Be thankful you have this hair. When you're old, you will still have plenty." That is so true. My hair is about half the thickness now (I'm in my sixties) that it was. Where my braids were nearly three inches across at the base when I was young, I can now make a braid that is little more than an inch. My hair is much more manageable, and still I have to fight with hairdressers who want to take razor blades and thinning shears to it. They only make it worse. The accessories you list are all good ones for thick hair and I have several similar in my accessories basket. When I need to tie my hair back quickly, I also use a huge claw-like clip that has about ten claws running down each side. It grabs everything and holds it neatly.

      @Othercatt: If you use a serum with argan oil it will look sleek and shiny, but not greasy. There are a bunch out there. I like garnier sleek and shine with argan oil

      My hair used to be fairly thick but less so as I get older. This reminds me of my ponytail days as a kid.

      I have thick frizzy hair. I find that most hair creams make my hair look oily so I wear my hair up in a ponytail all the time. It sure would be nice to style it pretty someday!
