Shrinkage Is Wonderful
One of the greatest things about afro-textured hair is the shrinkage. I don’t say that lightly and it has taken me some time to truly appreciate it but the truth is that truly healthy hair that has bounce, body, and movement comes with elasticity and this is often reflected in shrinkage.
The thing is that handling the shrinkage can be a bit much when you’re juggling life. You can lapse into a laissez-faire type of mindset where you just leave it to do what it does, but the danger with this is the tendency for the strands to get tangled and enmeshed with shed hair, then before you know it, you’re losing hair as a result of frustration with the detangling process.
This is why many will encourage that you keep your hair stretched so you can maintain hair health. At times like this it is great to have options in stretching so as to avoid unnecessary breakage.
Why Go With The Afri Treaders System For A Heatless Blowout
We’ve already hinted at the fact that threading has been practiced on the continent of Africa, the motherland, for centuries and by now we in the West have come to realize that anything pertaining to hair and beauty coming out of Africa is a hit.
The remedies, regimens, products even though they may be viewed as simplistic or primitive, well, they always work. Once it has the seal of African origin it is an instant selling point.
They are not cumbersome at all. They are easy to store, washable and easy to use so there will be no need to decode complicated instructions.
If you know how to wrap something around on itself you really won’t have any trouble with this tool.
Finding the right thread that won’t cut through your hair is one thing, but getting through the whole process with real thread can be time-consuming particularly if you are blessed with length.
The Afri-threaders tool enables you to get the same results as you would with traditional African threading for a fraction of the time.
Do you remember those hair nets the church mothers used to have hanging out the back of their hats? The Afri-threaders tool is reminiscent of that in some respects.
The mesh-like design allows for air to pass through, aiding quicker drying.
Instead of opting for keratin treatments or other chemical processes to stretch your hair out, the Afri Treaders System is a prudent alternative.
No need to subject your strands to possible damage from the chemicals, a heatless blowout is a healthier choice to show off your length while keeping your texture.
Some of us can get away with heat styling, the rest of us are not so lucky as heat damage is so easy to sustain and takes so long to rebound from.
The Afri-threaders tool won’t subject you to heat damage you could get from heat styling tools, so you can continue along your healthy hair journey without compromising the health and length you have sustained thus far.
Shrinkage can be so disrespectful when you get to that point in the journey where you want to show off your length. If some of us weren’t so scared of heat damage we would get blowouts and silk presses regularly but they are not for the faint of heart.
Sure we’ve heard of jumbo roller sets for stretching hair out and giving that blown-out look, but who can get a good night’s sleep with those things? The Afri-threaders tool is just the thing, after all, there is no need to sacrifice a good night’s rest with these bad boys.
Yes we have been hinting at it but it bears reiterating; a heatless blowout will do your tresses good. Trust me, we wouldn’t steer you wrong.
You have seen how black businesses have to struggle regardless of how brilliant the idea is or how relevant and innovative the products offered might be. Honestly, while you don’t want to think it, it’s as though there is a concerted effort to keep black entrepreneurship at a minimum; from the start-up capital to the hoops they need to jump through, it can be a bit much. We support everyone else but when it comes to our own we should go harder. When we support our businesses there is a trickle-down effect and the community is better for it.
How They Work
What better way to show you how this tool work than with a video. Check it out.
While the Afri-threaders tool is relatively new on the market, we believe it has the potential to be a big seller.
It doesn’t come with a heap of bells and whistles and the simplicity in its design is something reminiscent of the authenticity of African threading.
Initially, the sight of velcro made me nervous because generally velcro and hair don’t mix, but after seeing how the closure works in their video those fears were put to rest. The system comes in at a price of a modest $29 and you get 6 12″ Afri-threaders along with bonus items for that cost.
Not bad considering there are conditioners costing more than that, plus heat styling tools at that price are probably not worth your time anyway. Best of all, these will not interfere with sleep.
