STRETCHING Afro and Curly hair hair is always a beautiful option.

African Banding/Threading is a NO heat hair-stretching method that has been used in West Africa for centuries.

It is equivalent to blowdrying!

You may also use it to style the hair.



90 meters waxed excellent quality thread that is reusable.

0.8mm thickness

Wrap our glossy waxed thread around the length of your hair in small sections, keeping it tight and tout while wrapping. Leave for at least 24hrs before unraveling.

"Wonderful hair products that actually work! After years of trying to find something that truly hydrated my hair, I finally found the "Dry hair dew".

It absorbed well and left my 4c hair soft and smelling delicious. No more settling for a mediocre product because it's all I could find.

"The products are fantastic. We don't have to  comb my daughter's hair. Just finger combing suffices as the products help separate the hair easily."
