I’m going to be talking about one very important secreat in length retention.
African Threading

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.

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the
    theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) –
    it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the
    coronavirus scare!

    This is the right web site for everyone who wishes to find out about this
    topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been discussed for many years.
    Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    P.S. If you have a minute, would love your feedback
    on my new website re-design. You can find it by searching for “royal cbd” – no sweat if you can’t.

    Keep up the good work!
