  1. This is a very interesting way to stretch the hair and I’ve seen a few other YT vloggers attempt this. I’m thinking about trying it myself lol 🙂 Have you thought about it or tried it before?

  2. That threading Mohawk is to die for! I am so trying it out. Recently gone back to threading as a protective style after 8 years, sad how it is dying style here in southern Africa.
