After doing my experiment with different ways to stretch your hair, it was suggested that I try a banded twist out. So I gave it a shot :) This is what I did:
THE COMPARISON :)
I really love how much stretch the banded twist out gave my hair! It's almost shocking to see the difference in length. (My husband calls it super stretched lol.) I will definitely be revisiting this style again :D Since I was able to do larger twists, it didn't take me very long to do ( about 25 minutes.) So that's a huge plus!
Although I love the results of using the bands, there is quite a bit of tension involved. So, I wouldn't recommend doing this all the time. I don't want to cause any thinning or anything like that in the long run. But whenever I'm desiring to see more length on my fro...I'm totally doing this! I LOVE this style! LOL I hope you like it! If you are having trouble with your regular twistouts and the shrinkage that comes with twisting alone, give this style a try!
Check out my YouTube video, 4C Super Stretch (Banded Twistout) - Natural Hair for the tutorial on this style :)
