HOW TO STRETCH AND MOISTURIZE TYPE 4 HAIR
One of the best ways to prevent single strand knots, shrinkage, and long detangling sessions is to stretch your hair. I LOVE the look of my shrinkage, but I’ve found that the easiest way to retain length is to stretch type 4 hair. It even better if you don’t use heat.
I think we can all agree that moisturizing natural hair is important, but how often throughout the week should it be done? On average I moisturize my hair twice throughout week. My goal this week was to do a length check without adding heat, so I took the banding approach to stretch my hair.
This is a whole week (7 days) in my natural haircare routine from wash day to length check.

I hope this video was helpful in clarifying how and when to moisturize your hair throughout the week. The most important takeaway is to listen to your own hair. If it feels dry, moisturize it. When to moisturize will vary from person to person. What’s your favorite way to stretch your hair? Are you a flat iron or no-heat stretch kind of natural?
