How to do African Threading
African threading, also known as threading for hair growth, is a technique that involves twisting and wrapping hair with a thread to promote hair growth and length retention. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do African threading:
1. Prep your hair: Start with clean and moisturizer hair. Brush or comb your hair to remove tangles.
2. Section your hair: Divide your hair into sections, depending on how many you want to thread.
3. Thread the hair: Gather each section of hair with your fingers then wrap the thread around the twist.
4. Wrap the thread: Continue wrapping the thread around the twist, moving down the length of your hair.
5. Tuck the ends: Tuck the ends of the twist under the thread and secure with a knot the thread at the ends.
6. Repeat the process: Repeat steps 2-5 for each section of hair until you've threaded all of your hair.
7. Leave it in: Leave the thread in for 2-4 weeks to promote hair growth and length retention.
Note: It's important to be gentle when threading your hair to avoid breakage or tangling. You can also use a lubricant like coconut oil or shea butter to help the thread glide smoothly through your hair.
