I do stretch using braids or flat twists. I tried using both to see which gives me more length and definition.


  • Started with freshly washed and deep conditioned hair.
  • Moisturized with Mosara moisture milk & hydrating butter.
  • Flat twisted on one side and had three braids on the other side.
  • Left them overnight to dry.
  • Flat twists gave me more length while braids gave more definition.
