How To Stretch Your Natural Hair
Here is how you can stretch your hair immediately after your wash day routine.
After completing my wash day routine, which includes detangling, washing and conditioning, I apply "Love Me and Leave-In Conditioner" to my hair (which is kept in two-strand twists).
If I don't stretch my hair immediately afterward, my twists simply dry and shrivel up. Remember, UNstretched wet kinky-textured natural hair will shrink unless you shape it. To stretch my freshly washed hair, I can add rollers right away, or wait until the following day.
Step 1: Re-wet your hair if needed. Here I'm using a spray bottle.
Step 2: Add a tiny bit of "Love Me and Leave-In Conditioner" to your twist.
Step 3: Add two spritzes of "Aloe Citrus Kisses" Hair Acidifier to your twist.
Step 4: Add large magnetic rollers to each two-strand twist.
Repeat this process until you are done. I usually wind up with 17 rollers on my head.
Step 5: If you have time, you can allow your hair to air dry for 8 -10 hours or you can sit beneath a hair dryer for 2 hours (medium heat setting).
Once you're done, you will have silky, stretched twists that you can wear as a style, or untwist and separate for stretched loose hair.
