Needing to show possession of body part

Needing to show possession of body part

Are these both correct for saying, I wish my hair was thick: "Je me souhaite que les cheveux soient épais" or, " Je souhaite que mes cheveux soient epais?" Can you make basically any verb pronomial by adding reflexis pronouns and then know who's "body part" you're talking about? Thank you!

This would need the input of a native speaker for a definitive answer. But since German treats posession of body parts similarly to French, I am going to venture a guess. In this case I would the posessive "mes cheveux". -- Chris (not a native speaker).
Thank you, Chris! I really appreciate your help. Hopefully, Aurelie will chime in here:)

J'aimerais / je souhaite que mes cheveux soient épais is correct. You could say j'aimerais avoir les cheveux épais too. You cannot make a reflexive in this case .
VERY helpful! Thank you!
