In the very bottom of the Particle Settings you will see a section called Cycles Hair Settings. Change the 3 options:

  • Root
  • Tip
  • Scaling

These should make your hair thinner to your choice.

  • $\begingroup$ Use the root setting, and note that they will always stay triangular. Just the base width can be changed. $\endgroup$
