Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I haven't blogged a hair post in a while and for that I apologize. I am back to having weekly hair post moving forward. One of the best ways to retain your when you get it styled (straightened or curls) is wrapping your hair nightly. Whether your hair is natural, relaxed or transitioning, it is a necessary skill. Here is how I wrap my hair.
One of my biggest struggles for years with wrapping my hair, was keeping my scarf on all night, lol. The norm was to wake up with my scarf on my the side because I toss and turn a lot. This method is full proof, I guarantee it.
Why do you need to wrap your hair at night you might ask?
Keeps hair moisturized from the root to the tip.
Prevents hair from breakage
Protects your edges
Helps retain your style
Here are the items I use
Apply a dime sized coconut oil to your edges. (I don't do this every night, only when i notice dryness on my edges.) Using a paddle brush, comb your hair out from the center downwards. Pick a direction that you want to go and brush hair in that direction. I usually alternate directions nightly to give bounce to my hair. (Left one night, right the next) Secure hair in place with pins. Using a du-rag, place it on your hair from the back to the front, see images below. Make a knot at the front to secure it in place. I wrap from the back to the front to ensure a comfortable night's rest. It also tends to stay on securely this way. Place a satin bonnet over the du-rag and you are set for the night.
Short hair? You can still use try this method, simple use more pins.
