Yesterday I woke up with super coily ends after taking down chunky braids. I was tired of tying my hair everyday and time was not on my side.
What did I do to prevent serious knotting? I used my already prepared threads to stretch out just the ends of my hair. I sectioned my hair into 4, applied the last of my Shea butter mix :(,quickly tied up the ends with thread, and pinned them down using hair pins.
In less than 30mins I loosened the threads and my ends were smooth enough for styling. When my ends are smooth styling is faster and easier. If I let my ends coil up without taking the strands apart, my hair will be so knotted up by the end of the day and we know that knotted ends= breakage.
Thanks to thread I was ready in no time for my N.Y.S.C CD(community development) meeting!!
TIP: In my hurry I found that the threads can stay without being knotted at the end. So if you have problem ending your threaded hair with a knot you can tie up the hair and just leave the thread hanging. It wouldn't come undone.
