Spotting the Distinction Between Pre-Stretched and Traditional Style Braids

Sandra Rose ·
Pre-stretched braiding hair, also known as pre-feathered or pre-tapered hair, is characterized by a gradual taper at its ends, in contrast to the straight-cut ends found in conventional braiding hair bundles. This style is especially favored for braids with free-flowing ends that are sealed by immersion in hot water.

Opting for regular braiding hair is advisable if you desire blunt ends achieved through the use of a braid sealer or lighter, as opposed to the tapered ends of pre-stretched hair.

Given the time-consuming nature of the stretching process, some hairstylists may exclusively work with pre-stretched hair or may impose an additional fee to stretch the hair before the scheduled appointment.
