If you’re thinking about stretching your ears, I recommend using buffalo horn stretching crescents. Buffalo horn crescents are great to stretch with and they are great to wear after you have reached your desired size. Buffalo horn is one of the most biocompatible natural materials for body jewellery and it is very comfortable to wear. It does not react with your skin and is suitable for even sensitive piercings. It is also suitable for fresh stretches. Another quality that makes buffalo horn stretching crescents ideal for stretching is their smoothness. Buffalo horn can be polished to a beautifully smooth shine. It slides gently into stretchings, without the drag factor common to some other materials. Water buffalo horn is natural shed once a year, so it is obtained without harming the buffalo.
Buffalo Stretching Crescents Kit
This buffalo horn stretching crescent kit is a very popular way to stretch. It includes five crescents that will take you from a standard size ear piercing – usually 1.2mm (16g) right up to 10mm (00g). I used these crescents to stretch my ears and I was really pleased with them. I used a little olive oil on the crescents and they slid in nicely. I healed up fairly rapidly and found them very comfortable to wear in between sizes. Once I got to 10mm I decided to rest my ears before going up to 12mm, so I wore the largest crescent and a matching one for a while. They look really good in your stretchings and I got lots of compliments on them. I then used a taper to go up another 2mm but I am really glad I used the crescents up to 10mm.
