Part 1 Stretching Natural Hair using The Banding Method


Hola Chicas/Chicos..I pray all is well with everyone.. (part 2 is at ths link.. )

Ok..dun dun it is, the METHOD!! Stretching our natural hair using no heat, but with bands..huh??
No, really, with bands..and it works. So, as promised, I created a video tutorial on the banding method that I used from which I saw a youtuber that I adore and had the pleasure of meeting at the Natural Hair Show in Atlanta, BlackOnyx77 (be sure to check her out)..I had never thought about stretching my hair before that, but boy oh boy is it my staple now..

So guys, sit back and relax and enjoy

Products used:
  • Ouchless Bands, metal free (any grocery or drugstore)
  • SheaMoisture Deep Treatment Masque (Walgreens or Target, and
  • O'Natural Natty Butter ( )
  • Tangle Teezer (Sally's or
  • Moisturizing Spritz of water and peppermint oil (any herb shop, health food grocery)
So, I hope you guys enjoy

Happy Banded Day!


  1. My hair is too short to start banding "/

  2. I've tried banding once before. Think I'll give it another try now that my hair has grown more. Loved both pts 1 and 2 of your videos.

    p.s. Just ordered some of your Lemongrass/Lavender Natty Butter. Can't wait to try it. :-)

  3. Thank you ladies for your comments
