African Threading Tutorial: Stretch your Natural Hair

Hey Curlies,

It has taken me days to finish but the tutorial on African Threading is here.

Again, African Threading is a great way to stretch your natural hair without heat. The process takes about 45 minutes, depending on the length of your hair. It requires thread (I used crochet thread, but you can use whatever you'd like) that is wrapped around the length of your hair, air dried, then taken down for a blowout look.

I teased my results on Instagram a few days ago:

I had lots and lots of footage but I had to cut out most of it for time's sake.
