Fulani Silk Wrap gives your traditional headscarf a moisturizing boost.

The Fulani Silk Wrap Method is a process created by the Fulani people in parts of West Africa and Nigeria to combat dryness, promote hair growth and help retain moisture.
The process is simple. You can see for yourself in the video below. Take a silk scarf long enough to wrap around your hair, wet the scarf with warm water, squeeze out excess water so that the scarf is damp. Next, take an oil of your choice, preferably, olive oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil or palm oil (olive oil & jojoba oil are less likely to clog pores or cause blemishes/acne), pour a small amount into a bowl . Soak your scarf into the oil so that the scarf has been fully coated. Lastly, wrap your scarf around your hair.
You can wear the scarf at night or even all day. The silk scarf makes the hair smoother and shinier as well as provides extreme amounts of moisture which aids in faster hair growth.
The Fulani Silk Method is preferred over the Baggy Method because the baggy method is only recommended for overnight use, it’s not healthy for hair to remain wet, and the baggy method doesn’t allow for your hair to breathe nor dry.
