How To: Stretch Natural Hair with No Heat | Threading Method (mabhanzi)

Hey Guys,

As you are all aware, I cut my hair a few months back and I’m trying this whole no heat, minimal damage thing. I remember back in the day when I was younger, my mum or our house maid used to thread our hair as a style. All the used to have this hairstyle because it was easy, quick and it lasted. Thinking about it now, it was a protective style!

Watch the video above to see how I accomplished this stretch without using heat.


Here is what I used:

  • My ACV hair wash. Read more on my hair care products on this natural hair journey here
  • yarn/wool/thread
  • butterfly clips
  • Ndanaka ‘So Shea’ Hair butter. You can make your own or similar one like this one
  • Blow Dryer with a cool setting


How To:

  1. Spritz hair with the ACV mix
  2. Part into 4 sections
  3. Part into smaller sections
  4. Apply Ndanaka ‘So Shea’ Hair Butter to section to seal in the moisture
  5. Blow dry the hair on cool setting
  6. Wind the yarn round your hair
  7. Leave to dry
  8. Unravel when dry and comb out with a wide tooth comb
  9. Apply more butter
  10. Style!!
