No my hair is not thick anymore but I'm on the road to recovery with that. I have thyroid problems and 2 months ago found out that I was severely iron def. My daughters both have EXTREMELY thick hair and I usually do their hair in the sink. I find that the sink is the same as the shower until its time to flip the hair back. To help with this I use a T shirt to coil the hair in without causing tangles or frizz. As far as the tangling it's the same but either way its easier if you have running water than it is with a jug.
3b/c with some 4a in the middle of crown and back, medium to high porosity, frizzy, thirsty hair!
