Simple, lightweights, holds all my hair and does not cause breakage or pulling. It has little diamond-y things around the top. (yes, my fingers are stained orange)



twist, clip and go.

It actually holds all my hair in a full french twist. I had a full french twist today. I went to the gym this morning and then had to go to the grocery store. I got a compliment on my hairdo. I was wearing yoga pants, a baggy T shirt and the girl said it was beautiful - did I do it myself and how long did it take.

Plus if I don't get the pineapple perfectly on top of my head it slides either down one side or down the back of my head as I work out. Yipee!!
Mostly 3A/Some 3B Thick/Dry/Colored/SL

These are instructions for a bun but the principle is the same for a french twist.

I gotta tell you though, I've noticed this post a few times this afternoon but didn't notice it was in General. I thought you were kidding and it was going to be the picture of a pitchfork and someone nibbling on a bale of hay or something like that.
