Stretching - What is it?
Defined as: “(of something soft or elastic) Be made or be capable of being made longer or wider without tearing or breaking: "rubber will stretch easily when pulled".
Why do we do it?
· To combat shrinkage
· Ease the styling process
· Display actual length
How to do it:
· Heat – Use the blow dryer and/or flat iron to dry the hair
*This is the method I use but in my opinion is the most damaging. Therefore, I only do this every now and then for certain occasions. So far this year, I have done this 3 times. I primarily do it to create fullness. *Some opt to diffuse the hair after styling, which allows some stretch.
|No Stretch - Wash n Go|
*This method elongates your curls or coils prior to styling without changing curl pattern.
· Braid or twist hair – large sections
*This method elongates also, however, it gives you a more defined pattern
