Now I’m All Stre-etched Out!!

Came across these photos from my 1st attempt to ‘Thread’ BBH’s hair after reading a post about it on Beads, Braids, & Beyond’s site via its guest blogger Aisha (now THAT Mommy has mad skills; seriously).  As you can see, threading gets the job done when it comes to stretching hair. I was, and still am amazed at the length; it really is insane. Threading is a great alternative to ‘Banding’, which for BBH, takes much longer to dry and does not stretch her hair nearly as much.  Plus, with parts, its a style if it’s own, looking very much like twists.  Pros are, well, you can see for yourself.  The cons are you can really damage the hair if you tie the base too tight and/or the threading can come undone by the end of the day.  As to the latter, practice makes perfect; I’ve gotten better and it doesn’t take a lot of time to redo if necessary (about 25 minutes [as a newbie] in these pics). You can find a great tutorial posted by Girls Love Your Curls for threading here. As we tell BBH: try it, you might like it!!  **Caution, your BBH will end up looking like a big girl:(** LOL!  Go’Head Baby, and please let me know what you think!

p.s.  Apologies for blurred pics; we were kind of on the go…
