Different Ways to Stretch Natural Hair

I recently took down my Grey Crochet Braids, and while washing my hair, I spent too long being distracted by Youtube and Empire (have you seen the latest episode?!?!?!?!). By the time I washed it, the time was pretty late so I wanted the quickest, easiest way to stretch my natural hair in time for bed. I parted my hair into 4 and tried different methods on each one.



On one section, I had a twisted bun.

On another section, I braided the hair and twisted it around the base of the braid.

On another section was a sort of bantu knot.

On the last part, I used a two-strand twist which I tied around the base.

All methods were secured with hair bands.


 After unraveling, I discovered that there was no clear difference, honestly. That might have been because the hair was still damp from the night before though.




For now, I'd just say that all methods stretched the hair the same way.

You can check out the video I made below.

    2. It's stretches the hair wella but of course the way our hair is....shrinkage happens with time and faster when you moisturize.
