How To Wrap Hair (Pressed Natural Hair)

Chellur ya’ll .

Don’t let the fact that I am yet again behind on posts and just washed the press out last weekend stop you from enjoying this quick little video How-To. While I was wrapping my pressed natural hair, I realized I should share with ya’ll because I never was great at wrapping when my hair was relaxed, but this method helped immensely.


How To Wrap Your Hair

You will need a wide-toothed comb, a fine-toothed comb, a wrap scarf, bobby pins, a moisturizing product (optional), and some hair (preferably growing out your head).

  1. Start with a side part in the front
  2. Use the wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair, being gentle with the ends
  3. Use the fine-toothed comb, smooth the larger section down, around your head, and bobby pin it behind your ear
  4. Part a vertical section in the smaller section and wrap it toward the front of your head, up and around, pinning it down as close to the same ear as possible
  5. Continue adding sections and pinning them down until you have 1 section left
  6. Wrap the last section up and around, 1st bobby pinning near the opposite ear, then wrapping and pinning the ends close to the 1st ear
  7. Add bobby pins as necessary but don’t overdo it
  8. Cover your hair with scarf of your choice (the one in the video is from
  9. Sleep
  10. Awaken, remove bobby pins, use wide-toothed comb to comb down hair. Add a part and style as desired.

Hope that helped!

    Thanks for the advice on how to wrap hair. I always have a problem when I try to wrap my own hair. I will give the bobby pins idea a try. My question, though, is about the wrap that you have in the video. Does it really stay on all night? I have been looking for an adult wrap that is similar to the KiddieWrap. The kiddiewrap is the only wrap that would stay on my daughters hair at night, and I was thinking that I might need something similar to that. However, I can certainly give the one that you recommend a try, if you think it will work.
