How I stretch my curls!

I like my curls to be elongated and to air dry (trying to use a little heat as possible). I achieve this by simply separating my hair into five sections and letting it air dry for at least and two hours. Yes it’s time consuming but once you have a schedule in place for the maintenance of your hair you will not notice. Also for the last two months I have been using Devacurl  Supercream Coconut Curl Styler. This product has now become a staple for me I use this every week especially on wash days. I will review this product this week! Moving along pictured below is how I elongate my curls.  

 Two pigtails in the front to where it’s not super tight.

  Three ponytails in the back separating my problematic spots from the rest of my hair. My problematic zone is the middle of my hair, literally the smack dab middle. It’s a different texture, takes to products differently basically I am still learning that part of my hair and it has been a battle to say the least.

Once my hair is sectioned off I use Devacurl from tip to root and I make sure that my hair is saturated with product evenly. What needs to be added is some type of oil sheen so that my hair would look how it feels. 

Nevertheless my hair dries like this for two hours, I remove the scunchies and shake it out before I leave out or when I wake up.  

   This is how my hair starts out but on the second day I have volume and body.
How do you elongate your curls? How long does it take for your hair to dry?

Much Love,



  1. Oh love! Mine takes about the same time! I either wash, put conditioner in whilst damp and put it in a bun on top of my head, or I’ll allow to dry for about an hour, and then put it up. I leave it to stretch out like this for 24 hours… Too long? It seems to work for me


      1. Thanks beaut! And hmmm, it takes about half an hour for my to go from soaking wet to alright. To fully dry though takes about 2 hours. Air dried obv, no heat whatsoever ☺️
