I’m going to be talking about one very important secreat in length retention.
This is a traditional African hair styling technique, where you wrap around strands of hair from the root to tips.
It can be used to achieve a couple of things:
- Length retention
- Stretching the hair
- A blown out look
Unlike blow drying, threading is a heatless and less damaging protective hair style, that helps straighten your kinky hair. As far as healthy hair is concerned, your hair is better without this kind of heat.
Threading also helps to reduce tangling: we all know how tasking it can be to detangle kinky hair. It also helps to reduce manipulation: yes, we want to retain length, but can’t keep our hands off our hair. With threading, your hair is tucked in, so styling and touching is automatically reduced.
NOTE: Threading too tightly can cause pain and lead to loss of hair; especially your edges. So please don’t thread too tightly.
