As a naturalista, it's important to keep your hair free of tangles, or else you'll have poor length retention, which means your natural hair isn't growing as it should. To help you grow your natural hair, it's common to keep your hair in a stretched state. Some people achieve this via heat (not the best way), some by african threading (which I tried here), others by banding (using hair bands) and so on. I was looking for the easiest way to stretch my natural hair and I tried different methods, in the hopes of selecting one with the best outcomes.

- This was a modified bantu knot
- Similar to the second one, but here I twisted the hair and then wrapped it.
