Explore Straw Harsh, Compressed Rice and more!

Shimenawa (標縄・注連縄・七五三縄, literally "enclosing rope") are lengths of braided rice straw rope used for ritual purification in the Shinto religion. They can vary in diameter from a few centimetres to several metres, and are often seen festooned with shide. A space bound by shimenawa often indicates a sacred or pure space, such as that of a Shinto shrine.[1]

Are you in the process of transitioning from relaxed to natural hair? Straw/Rod sets are a great way to let the hair (and scalp) rest from harsh chemicals, tugging, pulling, braiding (too tight- aka vice grip-LOL) & it lasts for at least 2 to 3 weeks.
