Other Tips and Tricks

African Threading and Braids
This technique involves threading the section of hair and then braiding, then finishing up with more threading. Instead of braiding, you could also twist the hair. Picture shown above. For more details, click here.

Flat Twists with Threaded ends

Do you thread your hair or your kids' hair?


  1. It's funny how african threading suddenly became kids hairstyles. I remember my aunt used to do the corkscrew method that you pull. I tried to do Nadine's style once, but my hair isn't as thick and long. I'll try the bantu knot method nxt time, though the girl threads wierd lol.

  2. I do remember making this on my hair when I was Little. We call it the periwinkle hair do. Only that it wasnt taking out to form the curls when it was set. We carried it as a stlye.
    I have not seen the youtube video on threading for adult but it reminds me of a protective hairdo I saw recently. The lady hair was threaded with african thread but she added some kinky extention to her hair to add lenght. It looked really nice. And she told me she has had it on for about 2 months.

    1. Wow.. 2 months! I don't keep styles more than 2 weeks, max. I am not good at protective styling. LOL!

  3. I personally like threading especially with wools.

    1. Does the wool make you hair feel drier when taken out?

    1. No, not at all. Threading makes the hair longer and softer after taken out.
