Hello and welcome to my blog again. Today, I want to discuss about African threading for natural hair; the benefitsts, method and maintenance .
But before we go into that, permit me to officially announce to you that after months of running a multi-niche blog, I have now settled for Skincare, Beauty and Lifestyle.
Did I just hear glass clicks and cheers? Thank you!
May I also introduce my african threaded hair to you all? I call her Nweke’s hair. Please don’t ask me why but I feel a local name will be more appropriate for this local hair. The two hairstyles are slightly different because the shorter one was made with sewing thread while the more sophisticated one was made with yeye wool.
Before I threaded my hair the African way, I washed my hair using this Procedure. Afterwards, I applied the following:
1. Jamaican black castor oil
2. Shea butter
3. Argan oil
The reason I applied these heavy oils like to JBCO is to moisturize my hair and also to retain moisture.
While this hair might not look chic and sophisticated, it is a non heatless way to stretch the hair and also a nice protective style.
DURATION OF STYLING
The hair took about 1 hour 20 minutes to make and it was painless because it wasn’t tightened from the roots.
This is low maintenance style because I only have to spritz my roots thrice a week to maintain healthy hair. You can find how to make your homemade spritz here.
This is what my hair looked like after it was uninstalled.
As a naturalista, would you rock this style?

Thanks for the information. I never knew I must moisturize my hair before installing braids. No wonder my hair thins rapidly. Thanks again
That’s the basic Nkechi. The 4c natural hair should be moisturized at all times to avoid breakage. 4c hair abhors dry hair
You look beautiful as always but stick to articles and book writing. I will hate to be banished from here because you’ve made your blog all about women😢
I hope to see more from you chioma. I’m very much into hair and hair care and happen to have a type 4c which, as you can imagine is very stubborn and hard. Pls post more and God bless you!
Thank you very much for your comment.
I will try and post more about hair because I also have a coarse 4c hair.
God bless you too and I will also check your blog to see what you’ve got 😘
