Using Curlformers to Stretch Your Child's Natural Hair

Today was Wash Day for the girls, and I did not have time to wait overnight for Big Sis to stretch using the banding method of stretching.

Wash Process
  • Shampooed her hair using Elasta QP Crème Conditioning Shampoo (sulfate free)
  • Used Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle as rinse out conditioner
  • Deep Conditioned with Eden Bodyworks Deep Conditioner under a hooded dryer for 30 mins (hair was covered with a plastic cap)
  • Did a cool and seal with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner
Post Wash
  • Sectioned hair into 4 quadrants
  • Apply some Curls Blissful Lengths Kukui Nut Elixir on her scalp and Giovanni Direct Leave In Conditioner on the hair.
  • Used orange curlformers on the lower quadrants

  • Created a ponytail on each of the front quadrants and use the pink curlformers on the ends of the ponytails

The whole process took about 30 mins.

After about 2 hours of drying time, I started to twist each unraveled stretched curlformer. I was amazed by the stretch. It looked as if I blow dried her hair!!

This style is guaranteed to last 2 weeks with proper care.


  1. Wow, looks so neat and stretched out.

  2. I'm definitely trying curl formers... Twists hardly stretch my hair.

    1. Give it a try. I'm sure you will love the outcome.
