5 ways to stretch natural hair without heat

1. Braiding/twisting


After sealing, braid or twist it while it’s still damp and allow it to air dry.


2. Banding

Divide damp hair into sections then tie hair bands along the length of your hair leaving some space between each hair band and air dry.


3. Bantu knots

Take a section of hair and wind it in one direction, then continuously wrap that section around and around forming a knot. Tuck the ends of the hair under the knot to secure it.


4. Flexi rods


Section damp hair then wrap it around the flexi rods and air dry.


5. African threading

Wrap some thread around the entire length of your hair from root to tip and let it air dry.
