Methods of stretching natural hair without direct heat
Heat damage can leave hair dry, brittle, and can cause breakage and split ends. A healthier option would be to limit the usage of direct heat or heat styling tools that come into contact with your hair. However you may desire to stretch your hair being that many natural women suffer from shrinkage. Luckily there are different methods that allow you to elongate your hair without the use of harsh heat styling products.
Methods of stretching hair:
Roller sets will enable you to stretch your hair if you desire to do so. You have the option of either combing your hair out when your roller set is dry or you can try the silk wrap method which will actually give your hair a straight look.
Banding is the process of sectioning hair and placing rubber bands all the way down to the ends of the hair. This is can be done after washing and detangling hair. When all sections are completed, you can air dry your hair or sit under a dryer and then remove the bands.
Braid, bantu knot, and twist outs all enable you to stretch your natural hair. After detangling your hair you can apply any of these methods and then you can air dry or sit under a dryer. Once your hair is dry you can then comb out your hair and your hair will be more elongated.
Make sure your hair is combed well before applying any of the methods for stretching hair.
These methods can be applied before going to bed and then combed out in the morning; allowing your hair to air dry without the use of heat and unwanted time spent under the dryer.
MEEEEEE BITCHES!!! I missed tumblr so freaking much and I aint have no computer access. Not naaaaaaaaan. Sheesh. Whats good everyone? What are you all doing on NYE? Who will be your first 2011 lay? Ok I don’t need to know all of that…
Im sure you’re wasting spending your money wisely and disgusted by enjoying the family. Watching the little bitchniggas kids be kids and getting excited about their parents Santa coming down to get it crackin’ Saturday morning. Looking at the smiles of…
and this is why I love reading what he writes. lol #groupie
My biggest regret ever is reading My Biggest Regret Ever because it makes me absolutely infuriated with teenagers and their sexual idiocy. Take a moment to consider what you are about to do and how you feel about doing it before you actually go through with it, and maybe you would have less regrets about the whos and whys of your sexual history.
I hate reading about the dumb shit they do but I love it all too. They have plenty of time to learn from the dumb ish they did like we all did/do.
My biggest regret ever is being a part of a generation in which 10 year olds own cell phones and have Facebook accounts, 13 olds post nudes on the Internet, and 16 year olds are being applauded and having their life glamorized because they’re pregnant. It’s disgusting. I can’t help but feel f#cking ashamed that I am in any way connected to those people.
#this from a 17 year old. That’s pretty deep. Wise teenager.
Like the majority of American families, the Kuipers will borrow money to pay for college. A lot of money. They figure the total — for each child — will come to about $80,000. But for Shelby, who’s been applying for college, that $80,000 figure never came up.
Two-thirds of American college students will graduate with a sizeable debt; for the class of 2009, the average debt was $24,000. Add loans for graduate school and parent loans on behalf of their kids and the Kuipers’ family estimate of $80,000 per student is typical, according to Lauren Asher, who directs the non-profit Project on Student Debt.
“The need to borrow has grown for all types of students at all types of schools,” Asher said. “And the amount that students are borrowing is driven by the share of cost that students and families are expected to cover after aid. Now those costs have risen faster than family incomes, faster than available grant aid.”
America’s student debt at the end of 2010 is nearly $880 billion. That number is growing by more than $2,800 dollars per second.
Story of my life. When I finished undergrad, my parents owed $120,000 (yay Cornell.) and I owed about $10,000
Grad school was entirely my responsibility and I came out owing $48,000. It would have been more, but I lived at home and paid some of my own way.
I have almost no credit card debt. My car has been paid off for 3 years.
Most of my crushing debt is from becoming edu-macated.
It’s so worth it, though. I know by the time I’m done, Fannie May is gonna own me. I plan on going to the Peace Corps by the time I’ve graduated with my Master’s. It also helps that I aim to go into education, which means that they’ll forgive whatever remaining debt I’ll have after 10 years.
I think its catch 22, you can not have and not be qualified or you can be qualified and owe, sometimes its the lesser of 2 evils IMO. I don’t think its ever a good thing or worth it to owe upwards of $50K. CNBC had doc lastnight that had couple that had $250K in student loans, with interest they will end up paying close to $500K. husband had MBA and wife had education degree, 2 degrees that once upon a time gauranteed jobs, thy were both unemployed. plus some jobs now require credit history backgrounds, if you hv default loans that might hurt you. So either way you sort of screwed smh
$250K?? And I was salty about my $19K in loans…honestly I think a lot of high school students need to consider taking classes at community college and transferring to a 4 year school, because no one should still be paying off loans in there 40s and 50s. I did a semester there, and I saved so much money and time. People need to learn to be resourceful in these times.
This almost made me rethink going to grad school. Sheeesh what are my other options?
