Naturally kinky, curly hair is a beautiful asset to have.

There are several ways to stretch out your natural curls while still maintaining your hair’s health and curl but banding is one of the best methods.
Banding is an age old process that dates back to our ancestors. Banding your curls is simple and can add the length throughout the day. With freshly washed curls, separate your hair into small to medium sections, With a dime sized amount of Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Styling Lotion, moisturize each section from the root to the tip. Using a hair tie, make a ponytail out of the first section, about 3 inches under the first hair tie, add another, and another, and repeat until the section of hair is tied with hair ties from root to tip. The next day, gently remove each hair tie and, with about a quarter size of Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Styling Lotion, re-moisturize your enter head of hair, fluffing out the curls the way you like throughout.
While there are various ways to stretch out your natural curls, the banding process is the best way to maintain your natural curl pattern while stretching out your hair for length that will last all day. By using Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Styling Lotion, your curls will retain their shine, bounce, and curl pattern without turning into a dry frizzy mess throughout the day.
