I'm somewhat new to this, but, what I meant was, I was looking for the most effective method at doing this for our hair type. I know that different hair types are handled different ways, so that's where I was going. I.E. 3b is easier to tie than 3c, and 3c is easier than 4a and so on.
I got my hair saturated with water, combed through it to help get all the hair facing one way, then rubbed olive cream on it and brushed it in so that I could get some shine with the waves in it. Then I put a hair cover called a Tsurag over it to lay the top down, but let the back stick up instead of having pressure on it, so the strap was loose in the back. Then I woke up, front was smoothly laid down, wavy and somewhat shiny. I slipped on my hair band and it helped to separate and hold the back while I styled. Then I simply applied some curl enhancing cream to the back and picked it out a bit. What you see is the finished product
