Stretch Fro

I recently decided to get a protective style and thought it would be super to stretch my hair. Now that is worked fine for me I can share it with you all.
I co washed my hair using my Shea Moisture products also applying my Karen’s Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia Leave-in; you all know I couldn’t forget to seal up my ends by applying my Vatika oil. After all of that was said and done I twisted my hair into a couple chunky sections.

I then sat under my satin bonnet dryer for 45 mins. Once it was dry I removed the twists and combed out my hair using a wide tooth comb, to stretch my hair. These were my results.

I couldn’t help but throw up my black power sign while I was at it. Doesn’t it look lovely!! I must say after only 4 months post BC my hair has grown lots. I love it!!

Hope you like, and be sure to tell me how your stretching goes… Lastly,I would like to credit Karen of KBB for this method of stretching as mentioned in her interview with Matermea.

Matermea x Karen’s Body Beautiful

I was able to read this amazing interview by Matermea with the Beautiful Karen of Karen’s Body Beautiful.

Here’s a little about Matermea:

mater mea is a celebration of the multifaceted lives of mothers of color in New York City’s creative fields, born from a simple idea: that mothers come from all different walks of life. In collaboration with these inspirational women, mater mea uses images and text to illustrate how they juggle womanhood, motherhood and their careers — and how all three worlds have influenced their unique sense of style. We hope you see a little bit of yourself in the mater mea moms who have let us into their most intimate setting: at home, with their children

The interview was a sneak preview into the life(FRO included) and home of Karen and beautiful daughter Imani. Be sure to check it out. I’m sure you will love it
