3 Ways to Stretch Natural Hair for Transitioners



Although the transitioning process can be difficult, learning how to properly stretch your hair can make the journey to natural hair a little easier to digest. Proper stretching can help transitioners in a few different ways:
  • Easing the detangling process, and decreasing the amount of breakage from tangles.
