I had this lady come in at my job with her hair in twists (with weave) and I asked her who did and she said she did it herself- how many of you have done your on braids/twists? and how did it come out?
I have done my own braids as well. It is very cheap, but time consuming. I think I paid $1.99 US per pack of hair, and I only used 1 pack--but I have very fine hair. It took me a weekend to do, but I took alot of breaks. Growafrohairlong.com has a great demo of how to do them yourself. This is what I used and this was the first time for me doing my own braids. In my fotki there are pics of my braids too, but I have it in a bun.
