A safe, heat free way to lengthen hair for wear and styling.
Before seeing the Nwele technique executed in person, I was skeptical that the process could lengthen as much as heat styling, but let me tell you, seeing is believing — and so is having it demonstrated on my own hair.
Check out these pictures of the Nwele technique!
African Threading Up Close
A Damn Salon stylist demonstrates the Nwele technique by wrapping thread around the base of the hair.
Thread is wrapped around the entire length of hair from root to tip using a special technique.

Before You Style...
Make sure to detangle hair well before wrapping the thread around each section. The Damn Salon offers a great detangling brush to complement the process and create perfectly smooth sections.
If you are interested in trying this technique, The Damn Salon offers Natural Hair Care System kit that includes all you need to do this on your own! The kit includes thread, an instructional DVD, Peppermint + Tea Tree Shampoo, conditioner, butter, oil and The Damn Detangling Brush, which is available online at The Damn Boutique.
