|Freshly co-washed and moisturized|
Des had just co-washed her hair. I moisturized her hair from root to tip using a butter mixture. I then began sectioning it off her hair while Des picked the colors she wanted, since we opted for colored rubber bands. I used a modified Denman brush to smooth her hair as I got the hair sectioned off to put it up. I did five sections across the front of her head. I then staggered the second area into six sections. I went back to five sections for the third area. The fourth area was put into six sections. I then began attempting to taper the sections so the fifth area went into three sections by combining the sections previous. I then gathered all the sections together into a single rubber band. I went down the length of the ponytail placing rubber bands approximately two inches apart making sure the hair is smooth before placing the rubber band. Typically when banding hair you use thicker ponytail holders but we were trying to use the colors specific to these rubber bands. As I got to the end of her hair I made sure that I placed the rubber bands closer together to help protect her ends.
I have used this veil stretching method in the past with wonderful result and this time was no different. I must say that the day after I did this style Des ended up getting her hair wet at a church function so I left it until it dried. With that being said it was not as stretched as it would have been had it stayed dry initially.

This style served a dual purpose of being a style Des could wear out while she stretched her hair. She enjoyed it so much we left it a style till the day one of her rubber bands broke and then we revamped it. More on that style later.
Here is a couple of pictures of another time I did a similar style for the same reason.
I would love your feedback, have you ever done this kind of style and notice that it stretched the hair out.
Until the next time I hope you enjoyed stopping by... Stay Blessed.
