Naturalista Hair Tips 101: The Baggy Method

Have you heard of the baggy method or even tried it for yourself? Well let me tell you… You will want to give this method a try on your next wash day. Here are the details on the baggy method.

You can do the baggy method 2 ways:

1.  Full Head

2. Ponytail or ends only

The purpose of the baggy method is to promote hair growth by locking in moisture. When you baggy your ends, after moisturizing them, you will promote length retention. This is simply because your ends will be moisturized and not dry and prone to breakage and split ends. Those of you looking for a way to moisturize your dry hair may want to try this method.

So how to you actually do this method?

  • You will baggy on hair that has been washed and conditioned. You will then can apply your leave-in conditioner or add more moisturizer to your hair. Followed by a shower cap. You can secure your baggy with an elastic headband.

The second way:

Can be done on dry hair, You will first apply a moisturizer (or conditioner) to your hair, then put on your shower cap (or plastic bag), and then secure into place with an elastic headband.

You can baggy for how ever long you want. I only suggest 30 min to an hour( basically the same time as deep conditioning)

  1. I used the baggy meter all the time when I was relaxed and when I first BC’d. When I was relaxed, I would baggy my ponytail with a roller. When I went natural, I baggy-ed my entire head so I wouldn’t have to re-wet my hair every morning. It also kept my hair very moist.
