Okay, so recently stumbled onto the practice of banding and this could be due to shear laziness. I have been twisting some parts of my hair at night and banding the part in the back that is more difficult to reach. I think its working for me, but i was wondering does anyone else practice this a method for stretching out their hair and if so what's your technique. I can see it being a major alternative to the twist out(due to the twist time) if i can get a a good technique. So lets chat. Do you do it, Do you do it wet or dry...spill the beans please.

    I'm a lazy bander (only use about 2-3 bands for each section). I do it while I detangle (so wet and loaded with condish) and then when my hair is 90% dry I take each section down and do three twists or so (my hair is dense!). I try not to sleep with the bands in ( its uncomfortable and I worry about too much tension) and I only do them once a week (when I wash), I plan on stopping when I learn to canerow/cornrow.

    So do you sit under a dryer to let it dry or do you air dry?
