Hairstyle hacks: Stylist uses fire to smooth lady's braided hairdo, netizens concerned
While protective styles are meant to keep one's natural hair from damaging, sometimes the method applied in making such hairstyles often defeats the purpose.
A case in point is a video currently trending on social media. In the video, the braider, who appears to have finished a 'shuku' braided hairstyle on the client's hair, is seen attempting to smoothen the hair.
While some braiders use scissors to trim off spiky extensions and hot water to lessen the strain, this braider, identified as @thacher1, opted for the fire method to burn excess extensions.
