African Threaded style //2

Have you ever tried african threading? I believe there are lots of styles one can create using this method however I haven't seen many online which I feel I could wear on a day to day basis. So recently I have been trying to create some of my own!

I love using african threading on my hair. Not only as a gentle way to stretch my hair but also for day to day protective styles. Here is another easy style using threading which you can dress up or down depending on the occasion.

See what you can come up with!

Here are a couple of quick styles to do on hair that has been chunky twisted or african threaded. These last me all week or longer and what I love is that I don’t have to manipulate my hair until I come to take them down but I can still change my style daily if I choose, just by re-pinning the twists/coils in a different direction and accessorising.

Have you given african threading a go?

Have you ever tried african threading on your hair? You might remember it from your youth (I certainly do) when perhaps your mum or auntie wrapped huge amounts of thick black thread around sections of your hair to create stiff , sticking out spikes of hair. Well recently I have revisited this method of wrapping my hair- not as a styling option but rather as a way of stretching my hair.  It's fast and easy to do and works really well yielding similar results to a light blow out. I would really recommend you give it a try if you're looking for a good way to regularly stretch your hair without using heat. Here's part 1 of my video explaining the process:

Here is part 2 showing the results:
