Good morning and welcome to my blog again. Today, I want to discuss about African threading for natural hair; the benefits, 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 hair, beauty and fashion.
Did I just hear glass clicks and cheers? Thank you!
I want to remind you about my e-book which was published 3 weeks ago on Amazon. It can be purchased on AMAZON.COM/MY FORAY INTO THE DARK KINGDOM BY CHIOMA SCHMITZ
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, will you rock this style?
