Does your hair go from super thick to thin when pressed?

I'm natural (4a/b) but when I press my hair it looks and feels thin, is this common?
 
Also, for those naturals on the board do you notice the longer your hair gets, the thinner it looks (when pressed)?
 
I feel like my hair was thicker when it was shorter at around APL. I'm BSL now...

Yeah, sort of.  But I don't think your hair is "thin" the strands were just flatten because its straight.

My hair does the same thing. This is why I try not to straighten my hair often.

well your hair strands are compacted together naturally and when straightened they lay flatter which will equal less volume/thickness

My mother has thick natural 3b/3c hair (mbl).  When she flat irons it, it still looks full, but thats only because a lot of it reverts immediately so it starts looking "poofy" straight.  I dunno why but it just always does and it frustrates her to no end. My hair is like that sometimes too and im texlaxed. This is the only way I see flat hair effect not happening.
 
Its a problem that we all have.  I inevitably get sick of wearing my hair straight b/c it just looks to flat/artificial to me and I will go and wash it. it looks pretty at first until you're like damn it looks like i have half the hair i thought i had...Cry

Thanks ladiesHug!
I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one! I thought my hair was "thinning" out...
