How to Stretch Your Natural Hair without Heat

Read Time:2 Minute, 28 Second

Shrinkage is real when it comes to natural hair. This is one thing you can not avoid when your hair type is 4c and 4d.

One of the natural hair pages that I follow on Instagram dropped this natural hair hack which is originally posted for the 4c hair and I thought everyone natural hair type should benefit from these tips.

I don’t think I can remember how many times I’ve had my hair chopped this year but when I do decide to grow my hair out, it does really grow fast and thick which leaves me as perfect candidate for shrinkage season.

As much as we love to have our hair put into a straight form sometimes, heat damage is one factor to consider. Exposing your hair to too much and constant heat will not only damage your hair but also alter the true form of your natural hair.

We are all familiar with all these techniques but not just sure these will work for your hair but tust me it will. So, let’s get right to it.

5 WAYS TO STRETCH YOUR NATURAL HAIR WITHOUT HEAT

AGRICAN THREADING

This method is one I’m very familiar with so well. As a Nigerian, I don’t think there is any woman that has never tried this except a new born baby. This method stretches the hair and also make your hair grow faster. Why I never really liked this style then was because the lady that do make my hair when I was young, has a very strong hand and then there wasn’t anything like all these natural hair products we have available right now. You can totally do this on your own as well.

This style can be achieved by using a normal sewing thread, wool or the special thread for this hair.
