Why You Need To Start Banding Your Natural Hair Today

It's called banding.
When you have washed your hair, you need to take your method that you prefer and then stretch your hair, effectively letting it air dry. At this point, it will dry stretched instead of in a Black power fist like my hair does if I wash it and let it dry without doing anything to it. This will cause a nightmare to deal with. You never really want to do this unless your hair is short and can get away with it.
