Q
I have thick hair that’s down to my shoulders. I like having it straight, but it takes so long to straighten it! If I cut my hair shorter will it be faster to straighten? –Elena

A
Having thick hair does take patience, but it’s the number of hair per square inch that rakes time to be straightened. Cutting your hair shorter may lessen the time it takes to straighten it, and you may end up with a low-maintenance look you love!
