Could anyone suggest a good volume reducer?

I have wayyyyy more hair than I'm ever gonna need so I need way to thin it out a bit. Can hairdressers do this? I'm afraid mine will just use some yucky sulfate-y, silicone-ridden product and screw up my CG routine.

Sooo I've heard volume reducing products work too. Can anyone suggest a CG-friendly one?

Much Loveee,

    you could ask for layers, or just ask them to thin out your hair. i've got very thick hair too and a few years ago my hair used to be a big bush in the back and i got layers in the back and it helped, it was still curly but it didn't poof out as much. :)

    I have super thick, sometimes poofed 2C hair so I know your pain. I reccommend putting in a hold product and fishtail braiding overnight. I do this then straighten my ends and my bangs, hit with some hair spray (at night and in the morning, while braids are in) and when I take them out I get nice calm waves. Also, using a serum helps. You can learn how to do fishtail braids on youtube, wikihow, etc. It's not hard when you get the hang of it.
