Just because... Hair weight from march 28th 2008
Completely dry (More than 24 hours since my last shower) the mane weighs in at a little more than 200 grams / 7,05 ounces. My thickness is 12 cm/4,7 inches
That is not exactly heavy. Most hats would be heavier.
What gives me the headaches is when a few strands are carrying more weight than the rest, so the first step for me is to make a base ponytail where the weight is distributed evenly and the elastics hold it firm in place
