It's a WRAP: 3 Nightly Routines to Avoid Wrapping your Hair

I've always had a nice length of hair, but over time I noticed that the growth was at a standstill. I also noticed that it was becoming thin on one side. This damage was the result of wrapping my hair every single night for many many years. Six months ago I said goodbye to the wrapping and now I rotate between the following routines, which have resulted in tremendous growth.

Cross-Wrapping: Whenever I want to wear my hair straight, I cross-wrap at night. Cross-wrapping is similar to wrapping, but with less stress on your edges.

Loose Heat less Waves: I like this routine when I want loose curls the next day. I also like that you can get this look without adding heat.

Pin Curls: This has become my favorite nightly routine. The next morning my hair has body and a slight bend to it. By the end of the week it still looks fresh. It's not flat and boring like it would be with a wrap. For more curls you would pin curl smaller sections. For loose curls make bigger sections.
